With so many options, how do you choose closures for your plastic bottles?

Plastic bottle closures perform the vital function of serving as a protective seal on a plastic bottle, keeping the contents secure and preventing them from spilling out. Bottles Jars and Tubes provide a comprehensive assortment of closures available that are suitable for use on a diverse variety of plastic bottle, jar and tube openings.

Although a plastic cap is typically used to secure the opening of a plastic bottle, the materials used to make it differ from that of the bottle itself. Originally, the design of most caps would require them to be hard-pressed over and down the bottle opening. Holding it in place was a lip on the bottleneck. Then came the flip-top closure, which featured an innovative technique for closing bottles of fizzy drinks prior to the crown cork being created. Over the years, the design of bottle closures have evolved and now we have an extensive range of closures for glass bottles, plastic bottles, plastic jars, plastic vials, plastic squeeze bottles and plastic squeeze tubes.
