TopClip Can Topper

TopClip is a sustainable alternative for shrink film which is commonly used to bundle multipacks of cans.

With a 30% lower carbon footprint than a shrink film 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.

Smurfit Kappa is currently working with several large automation suppliers to develop a full turnkey solution for interested customers.

What are the features of this product?

  • TopClip can be used to bundle regular cans in groups of 4, 6 or 8
  • FSC® certified paper-based packaging: fully renewable, recyclable, biodegradable
  • No glue used, making it truly plastic free
  • Covers the can lids avoiding contamination
  • Excellent product presentation

What are the benefits of this product?

  • Addresses consumer concerns around sustainable packaging
  • Easy for consumers to recycle in the regular kerbside cardboard recycling system
  • Easy to handle and carry due to the finger-hole design
  • Easy for consumers to remove a single can in comparison to cans bundled in carton wraps/sleeves
