44 NEW TECHNOLOGY // FALL 2016 www.PackagingDigest.com new products Pack Expo Foil closure A new closure decorating process now lets distillers add a luxurious metallic look while still offering consumers the functionality, economy and easy opening of a plastic closure. The Luster process gives spirits packaging a premium look by adding foil to the tops and sides of 33mm smooth-wall closures (other closure sizes and finishes can be developed too, according to the company). For now, stock foil colors are gold, silver, black and white. Custom colors, finishes (such as shiny or matte), textures, patterns and special effects are also available or can be developed. According to the company, the Luster foil decoration does not change the closure's storage or handling needs, except that soft material capping chucks, such as rubber or neoprene, are recommended to protect the surface during application on the packaging line.
