Unilever Chooses Global Closure Systems as Lead Developer For Its New Clean Lock cap

24 Jul 2013 --- Thanks to its technology experience and its close partnership with Unilever, Global Closure Systems was awarded lead developer status for the new Clean Lock cap. This eye catching and clear headstand closure was chosen by Unilever for the new packaging of its dressings & condiments brands launched beginning of 2013 and including Amora, Colman’s and Hellmann’s.

24 Jul 2013 --- In order to meet Unilever expectations, GCS has developed a headstand bi-injected transparent closure incorporating a silicon valve.

The valve was designed to control and stop the flow of product so that the cap stays clean. The valve has been specified to provide the best dispensing performance and a clean cut off across the range of viscosities.

Stability of the upside down bottle is achieved by the design of the transparent external areas. The clarity of the closure brings focus to the clean spout and highlights the cleanness of the cap. The shape of the spout emphasizes control for the consumer.

In addition GCS has developed a live hinge which springs the lid all the way open in order to allow a one-hand opening operation and to ensure the consumer has maximum clearance for dispensing.
