New ACL Linerless, Lubrication-Free Closure Joins Silgan’s Family of Approved Aseptic Closures

Silgan Closures, a leader in food and beverage closure solutions, announced its new 33-millimeter ACL aseptic closure, which is lubrication-free. The closure features a linerless plug design that enables smooth application by the packager and easy removal by the consumer without the need for added lubrication, thereby eliminating the potential for lubricant clogging of filters.

The introduction of the new ACL closure also expands Silgan Closures’ range of neck sizes available for aseptic use. It joins the company’s existing closures reportedly approved for commercial use in aseptic packaging following rigorous testing by Sidel, the leading test site for aseptic packaging.

All are molded of HDPE (high-density polyethylene), linerless, and incorporate tamper-evident (TE) J-bands. By providing lubrication-free application, the ACL expands the group’s already significant offerings to aseptic packagers.

The ACL is the latest of the company’s aseptic closures to be approved for commercial use, following the 38-millimeter CEJ and the 38-millimeter GLA closures. All three closures are reportedly approved for applications in aseptic, HPP (high-pressure processing) and ESL (extended shelf life) packaging. The GLA is approved for HPP packaging only in PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles.
