Cap and Closure Liners (including EPE Wads)

Our dedicated clean area at Bluemay Weston produces cap liners, shives, EPE Wads and seals for many applications including bottles, jars and pump dispensers, aluminium caps and containers. These are currently used in a variety of products for many well known household names and can be supplied on extremely short lead times or on the day required to an agreed schedule.

Other options in this area include in-line application of self adhesive backing and roll packing if required. We do not have a minimum order quantity for products made from stock materials.

Materials are, as you would expect, of the highest standard and our significant stockholding coupled with positive partnerships with raw material suppliers mean that we can offer the right product with the minimum of delay. In the case of very urgent requirements our team is usually able to assist with at least a partial delivery within a day or two. Please talk to us should you need help!


Our standard expanded polyethylene material (EPE) from Tekni-Plex is Tri-Seal F217 which is a co-extruded 3 layer construction to provide solid polyethylene surfaces around an expanded polyethylene core. This gives the material far superior performance to single layer expanded polyethylene liners.
