The closure associated with your bottle or jar is perhaps one of the most important components to ensuring your packaging solutions are user-friendly and promote your product in its best light.

You wouldn’t store mascara in a bottle with a child-resistant, non-dispensing cap or your prized home brew in a bottle with a disc top – choosing a closure that best suits your product is imperative.

Types of Closures

Closures generally fall into two different categories: non-dispensing closures and dispensing closures.

Let’s take a look at the different types and applications for each.


Non-Dispensing Closures

Non-dispensing closures screw or snap on to containers with the same finish size.

They must be fully removed from the container before product can be dispensed. They are the most popular form of closure in the packaging market; you use them everyday.

Non-dispensing closures are the best at keeping your product in the container and are very cost effective. Seals can be added to protect your product even better. Non-dispensing closures come in a myriad of sizes, styles, shapes, colors and materials.

Some examples of non-dispensing closures include:

  • Child-resistant closures
  • Dome lids
  • Smooth Lids
  • Ribbed Lids
  • Tub Lids
  • Spice Lids
  • Continuous thread closures
  • Dropper assembly closures


Dispensing Closures

Dispensing closures remain on the container while allowing the user to dispense product, making them the ideal solution for ease of use.

These closures come in a variety of sizes, styles, colors, and materials, and can suit a wide range of product types. If the proper dispensing closure is fitted to your container, it will improve your customer’s experience and the overall value of your product.

Some examples of dispensing closures include:

  • Flip tops
  • Disc tops/Press tops
  • Yorker-style spouts/spout top
  • Push-pulls
  • Spouted
