INDIANAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Closure Systems International Inc. (CSI) reveals a new tethered closure design that helps keep plastics in the economy and out of the environment.
“As an active member of the U.S. Plastics Pact, Sustainable Packaging Coalition, and The Association of Plastic Recyclers, we are collaborating within our industry, our communities, and with our customers, to eliminate plastic pollution and improve recovery and recycling rates,” said Richard Burt, Vice President of Business Development at CSI.
“Our closures are designed to advance sustainable packaging and procurement innovations, and drive progress against the Global Goals.”
The Twist & Flip closure increases the recyclability of the closure by ensuring it stays attached to the bottle throughout the product’s lifecycle. As an added benefit for brands with ambitious sustainable packaging goals, the Twist & Flip tethered closure can be produced in CSI’s proprietary PolyCycle™ resin. This 100% FDA-approved Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) material provides a true closed-loop packaging solution. The launch of CSI’s Twist & Flip® tethered closure demonstrates CSI’s commitment to partnering for progress with a design that delivers – whether the priority is compliance, cost savings, or circularity.
With intuitive ease-of-opening, the Twist & Flip® closure does precisely that – twists and then flips open. The new design includes connector strands on the tamper-evident band that keep the closure attached after opening and allow the consumer to easily recap the bottle. A locking mechanism ensures an interference-free drinking experience by locking at 180 degrees when the cap is fully open.

The Twist & Flip® closure is precision-engineered to have excellent application performance on bottler lines while minimizing overall costs and closure weight. Dimensionally interchangeable with existing industry closures as a drop-in replacement, the Twist & Flip® design is commercially available in a range of product or pack requirements, including 26mm, 28mm, and 38mm diameters. The new tethered cap is available in 14 colors and clear to deliver superior shelf appeal and boost brand recognition.
