Does standard always mean dull? For sure not, with the new range of bold and coloured DuPont™ Surlyn® over-moulded caps launched by Coverpla, the French manufacturer of standardised bottles and caps for perfumes and cosmetics.

In particular, the ability to over-mould in many different colours allows for creating unique packaging that harmonises well with brand identity, and can be customised to reflect the latest trends.
Bruno Diepois, CEO at Coverpla, says: “We constantly have to innovate and bring new products to our customers. Leading brands expect flexibility, and Surlyn® gives us an incredible capacity for innovation and agility. This new cap enables brands to differentiate easily by playing with a rich palette of unique colours, decorative effects and tailored packaging styles.”

The standard size of the cap allows it to fit on the many different bottles and jars of Coverpla’s range.
