  • Flip Off closures

    Product Flip Off closures

    This range of closures is suitable for sealing single-dose and small bottles of medicine which are administered by needle and are the most popular on the market.

    The single-dose packs or bottles are opened by removing of the plastic part, which reveals the underlying elastomer enabling the product to be extracted by a needle. The plastic part is removed by slipping it off or by breaking the bridges of the underlying aluminium cap. This gives the cap a high guarantee of safety because the seal breakage makes the product tamper-proof.

    This range also includes Ann Twist Caps, which open easily by rotating the plastic part.


  • Aluminium closures

    Product Aluminium closures

    This range of closures is suitable for sealing single-dose and small bottles of medicine which are administered with a needle. To extract the contents, the aluminium central part is pulled away and the needle is introduced through the rubber stopper.
    This range also includes Lever Caps, which are special caps made up of two parts:
    1) the caps, are pre split and have no perforation point. The rivet is obtained on the cap during the drawing process.
    2) the lever, an aluminium part attached to the cap, which facilitates opening.
    These lever Caps are characterized by ease of opening: by lifting the lever, the circular cut breaks and reveals the rubber stopper, enabling the extraction of product by a needle.
    These Caps are anti counterfeit, easily machinable and having no holes or cuts, preserve the sterility of the rubber stopper until the time of opening.
