As a start to this process, we identified sizes/styles based on a variety of design attributes and qualities. The optimal percentage of PCR was chosen based on dimensional and physical performance. Tests were conducted to review the effect of processing on the fit, form, and function of each item. While evaluating all of these characteristics, we also compared to the virgin resin, with 0% PCR (current), samples.
We plan to launch products with over thirty sizes and styles to build our current portfolio, and we will continue to expand on these as we can. We have various non-food closures approved in overcaps, continuous thread, dispensing or flip-top, tamper-evident and cups. We have also added jars to our portfolio of PCR products. The target markets for our current PCR closures are personal and beauty care, homecare and other non-food products.
