Caps & Dispensers

Caps & Dispensers example

Caps and Dispensers are those components of the package system designed to contain the product within a rigid package system, and often to allow for the properly metered dispensing of the product in the in-use environment. The important functions of caps and dispensers include: product containment, screw cap torque retention, impact resistance, tamper evidence, convenience for product dispensing, and similar. For example, pump sprayers and trigger sprayers are designed to have and efficient and effective product delivery pattern and amount with each cycle. Dispensing caps for topical application should have the capability of 500 open/close cycles. Some of this testing is conducted according to recognized industry standards, some according to standards specific to a given type of package system. Westpak is knowledgeable in most or all of these testing standards with equipment and expertise to meet almost any testing need.
