Flip top lids are great for convenience. They help to preserve contents, keep out contaminants like moisture and dust, and prevent spilling while dispensing. All the materials used are recyclable, and there are food grade and FDA approved options to package a variety of products such as condiments, personal care products, and cleaning products.
Plastic Flip Top Caps
Most of the flip top caps for bottles and cans are made out of PP (polypropylene), which is a very resilient type of plastic able to withstand the constant opening and closing of the lid. While many types of spice and sifter caps are also made from PP for the same reason, some are also made from HDPE (high-density polyethylene), which is also a very strong type of plastic and is well suited to snap-on caps. Both types are resistant to impact, making them good choices when used in bathrooms, kitchens, and workshops. Both PP and HDPE can also handle certain abrasive chemicals, although HDPE is not suitable for solvents. The lids come in various colors, so it's easy to find options that complement the color of your labels, as well as the jar or bottle used. Should you prefer to purchase bottles or jars with the lids included, there are a wide range of options for both the containers and the lids.
What Type Of Flip Top Lid is Best?
In addition to coming in a range of sizes, flip top lids have different openings. Slotted flip top caps allow for easy dispensing of larger contents like grated cheese. Slit style openings allow for better precision when dispensing things like mayonnaise or chocolate sauce. Alternatively, spout caps work well for a variety of products that require a steady flow. To decide what caps to use, consider styles that match your products. Ribbed caps are great for providing added grip for products like body wash or shampoo that are used in wet environments.
