The current Sav-Ty™ prototype, with its 2-part injection-moulded plastic design can be clip–assembled or moulded into any beverage can end shell, in which an offset cut-out has been punched.
The plastic parts are simpler to produce and, at 3 grams, are much lighter than those used in resealable can ends currently on the market.
The screw cap is moulded from standard polypropylene and includes a lift-up tab with visible tamper-evident markers.
The anti-rotating support and thread are formed in a 2-K mould with an integrated soft seal system.
The cost estimate for a beverage can with the Sav-Ty™ Resealable End System is around 10 cents, making it competitive with other resealable packages, like PET and glass containers.
