Aptar Food + Beverage Announces New 2" Ultra XLV Closure

  • Aptar Food + Beverage

Aptar Food + Beverage proudly announces the 2" Ultra Extra Large Valve (XLV), the newest expansion to its inverted closure product line with SimpliSqueeze technology.

The 2” Ultra XLV is Aptar’s first stock closure offering with a valve large enough to successfully dispense very thick or high viscosity products, including those with particulates. The 2” Ultra XLV can be used with a rigid bottle or paired with an inverted flexible pouch to ensure a clean, controlled, convenient dispense with every squeeze.

Susan DeGroot, marketing director at Aptar shared:

“We are excited to showcase the new 2” Ultra XLV closure to the industry, as well as leading food brands and co-packers that can benefit from this innovative technology. Our extra-large flow control valve allows consumers to experience the ultimate in clean, controlled, convenient dispensing in new, thicker or high viscosity product categories. All with the proven technology our easy-to-use SimpliSqueeze valve has delivered to consumers for more than 25 years.”

There is a rising trend to dispense products such as guacamole, salsa, cream cheese, and peanut butter with squeezable packaging versus traditional tub formats. Aptar’s new 2” Ultra XLV makes it possible for these thicker, higher viscosity products to move into squeeze packaging and be stored in an inverted position. Inverted packs ensure these thicker products are always at-the-ready to dispense and aid in full product evacuation from the package. When combined with SimpliSqueeze, no utensils are required for the end consumer, while preventing drips, spills, or leaks.

The 2” Ultra XLV is versatile and comes in a standard neck finish allowing it to be used on a variety of packaging materials. Additionally, the one-handed flip top with SimpliSqueeze can be tailored based on individual product requirements across a wide range of product viscosities depending on the type of packaging.

“With our new 2” Ultra XLV, we understand that it’s not a one size fits all approach. We take each product in-house, test and evaluate it to make sure the valve is performing at the highest level to ensure a consistent, clean, controlled dispense with every squeeze,” said DeGroot.

Aptar’s market-proven flow control technology has enhanced the consumers’ dispensing experience for over 25 years and is now opening this experience up to new categories for years to come.
