Flow Control Valves

Aptar Closures has a variety of flow control valve materials, sizes, and opening configurations, enabling us to dispense a wide range of product viscosities.

Serum Trap Technology

Condiments may have syneresis where the product has a natural separation. Aptar Closures has pioneered the use of serum traps to reduce this naturally occurring phenomenon.

Liner-Free Closure

Slide features a superior tamper evidence system and eliminates the need for a foil liner to be applied to shelf-stable sauces and condiments. This helps balance safety, convenience and sustainability for both brands and consumers

Inverted Flexible Pouches

Through industry partnerships, Aptar Closures can deliver an inverted flexible pouch that reduces product waste, uses less plastic versus rigid containers, and still offers consumers a convenient and clean dispense.

We strive to be a partner at every stage of the process, from a concept on paper to a differentiated product on the shelf.

  • Ideation and prototyping services: Be confident in the performance of your product from the start.
