Bottles sealed with
Maxi crown seals
PEN and PET bottles
Beer in plastic (PEN
and PET) bottles are expected to be widely introduced into the market.
New techniques allow a shelf-life of 6 months with maintained quality.
The target is to modernize the good old beer glass bottle but still
maintain the traditional beer image. The new bottles are almost
as light as the cans, decoration options are the same as for glass
bottles, embossing can easily be added,
and for the finishing touch MaxiCrown caps can be used.
The sealing of plastic
bottles hwas carefully tested during a period of 4 years in close
cooperation with Carlsberg Copenhagen, before introduction into
the European market. MaxiCrown Conversion Kit has proven to meet
Carlsberg's specifications and expectations regarding efficiency
and reliability for the sealing of refillable PEN bottles as well
as one-way PET bottles.
Technically, crown corks
may be used to seal plastic bottlesbut at the cost of the
bottle neck finish being damaged! This means that people drinking
out of the bottle will have a less pleasant experience. Moreover,
for PEN bottles, this also means that the number of refillings will
be significantly reduced with increased costs as a result.
MaxiCrown seals plastic
bottles, whitout damaging the bottle neck finish.
Maxi crown seals glass
The good old beer glass
bottle can easily be modernised to meet the can's performance (tamper-proof
and easy to open): just put on the Maxi Crown cap!
MaxiCrown is sealed on
glass bottles at the same top pressure as crown corks. The
MaxiCrown sealing heads for glass bottles are easy to connect to
the sealing elements of standard crowners and other sealing machines.
