The company said the solution offers consumers convenience, while allowing existing customers to upgrade their packaging without a major investment or the need for new sleeves.
With a large pouring diameter of 25mm, combiMaxx offers an optimal product flow, SIG said, and perfect stream controllability. The large cap makes it easier and more comfortable for consumers to open and reclose the pack in one easy step. A highly visible, tamper-evidence ring gives consumers the confidence that the package has not already been opened. Fully resealable and leak-proof, combiMaxx also ensures opened packs can be stored safely in the fridge.
The combiMaxx closures use approximately 4.5% less plastic than combiSwift.
Hanno Bertling, senior product manager closures at SIG, said, “At SIG we’re committed to offering product innovation and differentiation.
“With our latest convenient combiMaxx closure, we can now offer our customers a cap that will help to increase brand loyalty among new and existing consumers. combiMaxx guarantees unbeatable pouring action, easy handling and spill-free horizontal and vertical storage.”
Since the base plate dimensions and sleeves remain unchanged, SIG said it is easy for existing customers to switch from combiSwift to the combiMaxx closure without requiring a major investment.
Additionally, combiMaxx can be combined with all of SIG’s existing mid- and large-size carton formats, starting with combiblocSlimline, combiblocMidi and combifitMidi. Color options include white, red, blue and green, with additional colors available upon request.
“The transition for our customers to use the new closure system is easy to implement without any significant cost,” Bertling said.
“We want to ensure the food and beverage industry can adapt quickly to fast-paced consumer needs to guarantee ongoing competitive advantage.”
