  • Crown Types

Internationally the “Pry off” (vs “Twist off”) option is preferred for reasons of tamper proofing. We offer both in either Tin Free Steel (TFS) or Electrolytic Tin Plate (ETP) but recommend using ETP.


  • Liner options

Although PVC liners can be supplied, we recommend to use Dry Blend PVC Free liner that meets all EU & North American Health and Food Safety standards. Many of the liners currently found in South Africa, does not meet these international requirements.


  • Value added options

We offer 2 special compounds that can be integrated into the liner. The oxy scavenger option reduce oxygen ingress of the product (from oxygen captured in the bottle’s headspace), extends the shelf life and assists in protecting against corrosion. The oxy liner prevents oxygen from entering the container from outside, but is not needed if positive pressure exists in the container.  We recommend to include the oxy scavenger option when stock turnover time is uncertain or for high end quality differentiated products  (ea craft beers).
