Albéa launches its new range of Basic Cap flip-top caps in a 100% PE version. After the Slim Cap PE version launched this summer, this cap comes as an addition to the range of single-material tube solutions provided by Albéa.

Albéa says that the PE Basic Cap, combined with a PE sleeve and head in PE, produces a single-material tube that can be processed in existing rigid HDPE recycling streams. The entire packaging is processed into PE recycled plastic granules ready to be reused for other applications. Single-material packaging thus contributes to maintaining the good quality of the material from its recycling stream.

The PE Basic Cap is a clickable flip-top cap. It is compatible with the entire range of laminate and plastic tubes with a diameter of 30, 35, 40 and 50mm. The Slim Cap PE is one of the lightest caps on the market, an eco-designed model that combines the weight reduction of the packaging with its recyclability. It is available with a 50mm diameter, also in laminate or plastic tubes.

This a further step towards the company's objective of providing 100% recycled packaging by 2025.

“With these two models of PE caps, we can offer our customers a choice of single material recyclable tube solutions, helping them to differentiate themselves and achieve their packaging recyclability objectives” Caroline Hughes, Marketing Tubes Manager at Albéa.
