Pouring aids for AdBlue containers and light-weight closures for car care products

Bericap has developed a unique filling aid for AdBlue tanks in vehicles. It allows car owners to fill their AdBlue containers easier and faster, and thus helps to comply with current emission standards. Since 2015, all first-registered Euro 6 diesel vehicles have had to use the AdBlue additive to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. The filling aid from Bericap is intended to simplify the handling of common 10-litre refueling tanks considerably. Bericap offers various shapes and sizes of expandable pourer types. They can be used for container sizes from 5-25 l. The foldable pourers are designed for easy push-in application into containers. They fit onto containers with standard neck sizes DIN42 and DIN45 due to their innovative conical foot design. For accurate pouring results the long expandable nozzle is bendable 180 degrees and will remain in this position without additional fixation by hand. Thus, this feature allows the consumer to keep the container with both hands for save pouring.

In addition, the manufacturer of plastic closures has developed two weight-optimised closures that can be used both for AdBlue and for commercially available car care products.

With the optimized SK 45/26 NG, a new lightweight closure was added to the DIN45 product range, intended for the market of automotive additives such as AdBlue. The closure fits containers from 5-25 l and weighs 30% less than its predecessors.

In cooperation with a leading manufacturer of blow-moulded containers, the brand-new SK 42/21 SFB Safeseal was developed for various car care products such as antifreeze, distilled water and basic chemicals, as well as AdBlue. Just like the standard SK 45/26 MAB MDR closure and the light version SK 45/26 MAB MDR NG, the SK 42/21 SFB Safeseal is stated to combine an attractive design with a safe application. The knurl design is highly convenient and supports an easy handling and smooth opening. Furthermore, the closure protects the product with a slit-flex tamper evidence band, which breaks easily with first opening. It fits to a 42mm plastic neck.

Among other exhibits these new products will be presented at FachPack, Nuremberg, Sep 24-26, Stand 418 in Hall 6.
