LET'S CREATE NEW
For all of us, what truly matters are the golden moments in life that come from a mixture of inspiration and perspiration. Here’s the story of ours.

New Technological Peaks
100% metallic effect IML closure was thought to be impossible. We proved it wasn’t.
IML Technology quickly identified as a solution to a development brief that asked us to create a plastic closure that looked like metal. To turn this vision into reality it meant pioneering the first usage of IML in the skirt of a closure.
A 100% metallic IML didn’t yet exist, in fact our enquiries revealed that suppliers and R&D departments were not even exploring the possibility. We persisted with an advanced battery of tests, overcame barriers like static cling effect to develop our breakthrough solution.
Creating a brushed metal look on a plastic closure was thought to be impossible. We proved it wasn’t.
To further reinforce the premium positioning suggested by our pioneering IML skirt wrap, we developed a brushed metal effect using engraving that was non standard and considered technically impossible at the start of the project. Our R&D teams explored new technologies to create a brushed metal effect that’s as innovative as it is beautiful.
Ensuring our beautiful closure arrived on the shelf looking perfect was thought to be impossible. We proved it wasn’t.
The closure is the gateway to the product experience for the consumer and this experience must be protected. To do this we invented a new coating solution and then subjected our closures to rigorous testing that involved the creative adaptation of testing techniques from the automotive industry. We even integrated a pasta conveyor into our process!
