TopClip Can Topper
TopClip is a sustainable alternative for shrink wrap which is commonly used to bundle multipacks of cans.
With a 30% lower carbon footprint than a shrink wrap consumer pack, the paper-based TopClip is completely plastic-free and 100% renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. Furthermore, as it is made from less material and does not require glue, it is significantly more sustainable than other recently launched same-purpose packaging solutions on the market.
TopClip fully covers the top of the cans, protecting them from contamination and providing excellent branding opportunities. It has two die-cut holes so it can be handled easily in-store and has received excellent feedback in consumer tests.
TopClip is a perfect example of 'On-the-Go' packaging for multipacks of canned beverages. Whether alcoholic or soft drinks, regular or sleeks cans, bundles of 4,6 or 8 cans, TopClip can meet your multipack needs.
