RESEALABLE CANS?

CANS ARE THE ONLY DRINKING CONTAINERS THAT...

Cans are so far the only beverage containers that once opened can't be re-sealed. Despite the fact that there have been several attempts at creating a solution, none of them had really made the race. The industry magazine „The Can Maker“ compared these attempts with the „Search for the holy grail“ of the packaging industry.

Here at Top Cap we have set out to create a unique opportunity for fillers as well as can producers. Not only have we developed a can lid that is 100% re-sealable – our lid solutions are suitable for existing filling plants and appropriate for aluminium, tin plate and plastic cans. the click cap from Top Cap is entirely compatible with any can seamer on the market, thus allowing fast and easy implementation in existing filling facilities.

The idea to create a familiar opening and closing mechanism that anyone can use conveniently, was born in 2009. In the last eight years the Top Cap team developed the idea to series production readiness. With the click cap, sharp metallic edges have become a relic of the past. Dangerous insects can’t contaminate the filling anymore.

And beers and soft drinks alike keep their sparkling freshness.
