LINDAL Group (lindal.com), a leader in aerosol packaging, has launched FlipClassic, an insert-less actuator with an integrated cap as a compelling alternative to more costly twist-lock actuators.
FlipClassic is a highly cost efficient and ergonomically appealing design ideal for regional brands and contract fillers in competitive and promising market sectors such as the personal care market. Its fresh, contemporary, design delights consumers by solving the common problem of lost caps especially in the case of the fast-growing travel pack product sector, where undesired actuation is a concern.
Unlike more costly twist-lock and traditional cap-plus-actuators, FlipClassic is crafted with its cap and actuator securely hinged. FlipClassic’s one-handed operation has become a desired consumer gesture, thanks to the global acceptance of hinged closures on tube-based personal care products such as shampoos.
FlipClassic is a 35mm diameter actuator fitted on the mounting cup, suitable for a wide range of aluminum cans available on the market. In addition, a cap-integrated actuator for PET containers is in development.
