Packaging Tip

PE Lined Caps

PE is a universal liner material used in an array of industries to help keep products fresh on store shelves. PE liners are composed of multiple layers that remain attached to the plastic cap during use. The top and bottom layers of the PE liners are composed of solid low-density polyethylene (LDPE), with a low-density foam core in the middle, creating a liner that is compatible with many products. PE lined caps offer excellent chemical resistance to acids, alkalis, solvents, alcohol, oil, household cosmetics, and aqueous products. PE liners also offer low moisture transmission rates, odor resistance, and do not alter product taste.
