Specifications
This black 38mm Drop-Lok® plastic cap features a 0.03" SureSeal® SS-222 three-ply foam liner liner. Made of polypropylene (PP) plastic, this cap fits glass containers with a 38mm (38-1768) neck finish and plastic containers with 38mm (38-1763) and 38mm (38-1787) neck finishes. Drop-Lok® caps have a tamper-evident ring that breaks away from the cap when the container is opened. These caps are ideal for packaging food, liquor, pharmaceuticals and other chemical products. The ribbed sided design provides a grippable surface that eases opening. The three-ply, one-piece foam liner is compatible with many substances and is great for general lining applications. This cap is not designed to seal product with high levels of carbonation or CO2. This cap can seal low levels of CO2 volume up to 3 PSI.

Cap Liner Type:

SureSeal® 3-Ply Co-extruded Foam Liner Composition
The SureSeal® liner is a three-ply co-extruded white liner consisting of a closed cell foam produced from low-density polyethylene (LDPE) faced with solid LDPE on both sides. The opaque white outer skins create a high-quality visual aesthetic. The inner foam core creates a compressible yet resilient product allowing it to create a good seal with the container. Three-ply foam liners have become the industry standard due to their all-purpose compatibility, resilient, compressible seal, cleanliness (no pulp dust) and economy. Three-ply liners are taste and odor resistant, and have a low moisture transmission rate, meaning they prevent moisture from entering the bottle and affecting products. (This liner does not create an airtight seal.)

Material:

Polypropylene PlasticPolypropylene (PP) is a tough plastic that has excellent chemical resistance. PP is translucent in its natural state but can have a glossy finish when produced with color. Some examples of common products made with PP are dairy and medication containers. Polypropylene is suitable for hot fill applications of up to 205°F and is therefore great for autoclaving. It is not recommended for cold or sub-freezing temperatures. The Cary Company has an assortment of polypropylene plastics available for purchase, such as plastic caps and jars, which have a higher tolerance for chemical products. Discover if Polypropylene is appropriate for hot fill application by learning more about What Is Hot Fill Packaging and how it applies to Polypropylene containers.
