UK pre-cut lid and shrink sleeve manufacturer Chadwicks of Bury (part of the Clondalkin Group), has developed an aluminum lidding material to seal to glass.

The decorative lids have been produced for a new premium yogurt range from Alston Dairy.

Ken Dunlop, sales manager at Chadwicks, said, “Typically, sealing pre-cut lids to glass presents many technical difficulties, however when Alston Dairy approached us about developing a new type of material capable of sealing to glass jars we rose to the challenge. Alston also required a ‘crimped over’ lid to emphasize the premium nature of the range.

“Working in partnership with our sister company Royal Vaassen in the Netherlands, we developed a material that provides an optimum sealing solution for glass, and teamed up with Seal-it-Systems to create the desired ‘crimping’ effect. We now have another great addition to our lids portfolio, which has provided Alston Dairy with a high quality lid that delivers enhanced shelf appeal for its premium product range.”

Emma Coupe, development director from Alston Dairy, said, “Chadwicks continues to impress our new product development team and we are delighted with the finished product.”

Chadwicks of Bury supplies flexible packaging for the food, dairy, beverage, personal care and household sectors.  It is one of six companies operating throughout Europe under Clondalkin Group.
