Epseal TPE

Taste free Sealing Solutions
for the food & beverage industry

Epseal thermoplastic elastomers are custom made liner sealing compounds for the food and beverage industry. They are PVC free and conform to FDA and EU regulations. A range of compounds have been developed with series dedicated to different types of closures including crown corks, aluminium closures, both roll on and roll on pilfer proof, plastic closures, both out shell and in shell liner moulding.

Consumer appeal

Epseal compounds give excellent organoleptic results ensuring neutral taste properties, a key requirement for sensitive filling goods like mineral water. Excellent sealing characteristics are combined with the optimal elasticity and softness necessary for each individual closure and packaging system, be that PET, glass, returnable or one way.

They offer consistent short, medium and long term opening torques which provides consumer friendly functionality and also make it easier for children and senior citizens to open the bottles. Solutions are available for carbonated soft drinks, beer, wine, fruit juice and milk based beverages. Including versions that perform ideally after cold fill, hot fill, pasteurisation or sterilisation processing. For beverage promotion opportunities, we also offer laser compatible compounds throughout the range.
