New introduction of 0,5L and 1L PET-bottle

The filling is has formerly been done by non-returnable glass bottles, in a 0,75L and 0,33L size, made especially for the HORECA market, but in September 2011, Vilas del Turbón introduced two new products: the 0,5L and a 1L PET bottle.

As a modern light closure Vilas del Turbon chose the BERICAP’s HexaLite® 29/11 solution. HexaLite® closures are equipped with a slit and folded safety band (flexband) for efficient TE performance providing good anti-counterfeiting feature at the same time, reliable and forgiving application also on high-speed lines.
