Innovative Molding Introduces New Lockliner Cap Liner System
January 3, 2008 - Innovative Molding Inc. introduces the new Lockliner cap liner system. This unique liner is designed to assure the liner stays properly seated within the closure prior to capping and that induction sealing is bonded effectively. Lockliner helps maximize product quality while improving capping and induction sealing equipment reliability.
Traditional round paperboard-backed foil liners are prone to curling when subjected to humid conditions during shipping or warehousing. This curling causes the liners to fall out prior to capping or wrinkle during capping, which adversely affects the efficiencies of the operation and can result in the production downtime. Until now, the alternative was to use tri-tab liners but the large squared-off tabs can distort the eddy currents during induction sealing, which may compromise the integrity of the seal.
Searching for a superior solution, Innovative Molding designed the new Lockliner cap liner system.
The new Lockliner features five protruding extensions specifically designed to hold the liner in place so is doesn't bow, bend, creep, curl or blow-out of the lid during shipping or warehousing. The unique design of these tabs minimizes the disruption of the eddy currents during induction sealing. The Lockliner extensions protrude one-third of the distance of tri-tab extensions and are twice as wide, thereby covering a larger area of the round perimeter.
Innovative Molding has Lockliner cap liners immediately available for 110mm closures and will soon introduce the liners in several other sizes as small as 63mm. Lockliners are available in paperboard-backed foil liners as well as synthetic-backed liners. They are suitable for liquid or dry products that are hot or ambient filled, whether in plastic or glass containers.
In addition to improving product quality by achieving superior seals, the Lockliner cap liner presents end-users with an optional way to open the package.
No adjustments in capping or induction sealing equipment are needed to switch from traditional round liners or tri-tab liners to Lockliner cap liners.
