Glass-Like Clarity Matches Perfume Cap to Bottle

Poland molder Politech Sp. z.o.o. delivers aesthetics and durability in new perfume caps.

Ultra-clear DuPont™ Surlyn® PC2000 resin helps integrate package shape and glass-like appearance.

Package Description

Politech ANGEL perfume cap and bottle 
Introduced at Cosmoprof Bologna in 2009, the latest packages for 30-ml and 50-ml ANGEL line perfumes combine manufacturing efficiency and premium aesthetics. The packaging line-up includes colored as well as clear alternatives, requiring close attention to parts design and dimensional consistency in several different materials. For an all-clear bottle and cap combination, the look is that of a luxurious all-glass design, but with the durability of a molded plastic cap.

Curved lines of the glass bottle, meant to evoke bent palm trees, are carried into the molded cap design for a fully integrated and ergonomic shape that’s unique to the category.
DuPont Resin Used, and Why
DuPont™ Surlyn® PC2000 resin is used by Politech for the clear molded caps. This is one of several DuPont resins specially tailored for the aesthetics-sensitive perfume and cosmetics market.

Surlyn® resins deliver premium levels of clarity and consistency in molded part manufacturing such as clear jars and caps. Compared with other clear molding resins, the Surlyn® resins are also highly resistant to oils and other ingredients in cosmetics formulations, helping protect the look and feel of the packaging.
DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers manufactures an extensive mix of adhesive, barrier, peelable lidding and sealant resins and provides a globally networked development team to work with customers on packaging programs that help protect the product, environment; improve shelf appeal, convenience; and reduce cost in the food, cosmetics, medical products and other consumer goods and industrial packaging industries.
