Description

Packaging closures have undergone much evolution and development in recent years, and their functions have grown beyond simply allowing easy access and reclosing, This volume examines the technologies relevant to packaging closures and sealing systems and features chapters contributed by top professionals in the packaging industry. To date, this is the only book dedicated to this important area. It is organized according to the various types of packaging--metal, glass, plastics, flexible, and composite containers--and includes a chapter that explores child resistance, tamper evidence, and openability and another that examines quality assessment.
