Aptar Food + Beverage is pleased to announce Rocket, its next-generation sport cap.
Rocket sport cap offers visual consumer safety through a yellow-colored band that indicates whether the packaging has been opened on store shelves or at home. This solution redefines beverage packaging safety standards as the first one in the market providing a visual and intuitive non-detachable tamper evidence indicator.
Nguyen Hoang, Sebastien, global business development director beverage, said:
“Aptar is dedicated to creating solutions based directly on consumer feedback. Rocket was born from consumer insights to offer visual safety that provides reassurance, in addition to an improved drinking experience that brings the comfort and convenience consumers value.”
In addition to its visible safety, Rocket provides further safety to consumers with its “no-dust”, double-wall lid design that protects the spout from external contaminants, in addition to being designed to adhere to child safety standards (BSDA & EN 71*). A large finger recess and audible closing “click” sound makes opening and closing Rocket easy and reassuring for consumers.
Nguyen Hoang said the design and functionality of Rocket enhance what consumers and brands expect from a sport cap. For example, while most caps open at a 110-degree angle, Rocket’s hinge technology offers a 180-degree angle. The hinge functionality also ensures the elimination of a lid spring-back effect. Altogether, Rocket provides a wider opening and a more comfortable drinking experience.
“Our goal was to develop a cap that met consumer expectations in terms of safety and comfort of drinking, while also addressing the increasing demand for sustainable packaging,” Nguyen Hoang said. “Consumer and brand product standards are always evolving, and Rocket was created to stay at the forefront of these changes.”
With Rocket, Aptar continues to focus on meeting new sustainability standards and targets. The tamper-evident band is tethered to the bottle through its lifecycle, and therefore increases the likelihood of the closure being collected and sent through the recycling stream with the container. Rocket complies with upcoming regulations, including the Single-Use Plastic (SUP) directive proposal in Europe.
