Graphic Packaging International has unveiled a brand-new recyclable paperboard topper for plastic bottle multipacks.

Cap-It, which is currently in commercial use in Asia, is an innovative clip with neck rings for multipack PET or recycled PET bottles. The company is marketing the paperboard clip, made of renewable materials, as an alternative to traditional shrink film packaging.

“Graphic Packaging’s wide range of sustainable paperboard beverage solutions work well with multiple can, glass bottle and PET bottle configurations,” said Roxanne McSpadden, director of marketing and beverage new product development at Graphic Packaging.

“Cap-It is our latest innovation for PET bottles that replaces traditional plastic multipack solutions, such as rings and shrink films. With Cap-It, customers are guaranteed a 100% recyclable package that aids the circular economy by providing fibres that can circulate multiple times through the recycling chain and become new packaging.” 

“Our multi-award-winning solution, KeelClip, has helped our customers achieve environmental improvements via clip-format application throughout 2020, and we continue to innovate with solutions such as Cap-It to ensure our customers have tailored packaging that suits their individual needs,” continued McSpadden.

Graphic Packaging's Vision 2025 objectives aim to help make 100% of its products fully recyclable by 2025. The company says that it is joining other like-minded beverage customers around the world in the journey to realize ambitious packaging sustainability strategies.
