The development of new closure systems for gable top carton packages in the 2000s, was a key response by the gable top carton producers to the rapid development of PET bottles which were offering functional advantages such as ease of opening and pouring. However, the initial closures that were developed for the gable top cartons, and are still on the market, have weaknesses such as difficulty in opening or the tamper-evident band falling off, which affects consumer confidence.
Today, the new CueCap® technology offers a solution to all these drawbacks and a unique consumer experience. CueCap® increases security and functionality creating a trouble-free tamper evidence. CueCap® is 10-30% lighter and uses renewable and recyclable materials. All this without making significant changes to cap applicators on filling machines at dairy and juice companies.
