MB-Lok mini

INDIANAPOLIS - April 26, 2011 - Closure Systems International's short-height, MB-Lok mini 28mm closure has been selected by a leading malt beverage company for the national rollout of a new 16 ounce PET bottle. "The new 1881 finish bottles and MB-Lok mini closures will significantly reduce material usage, while continuing to deliver the fresh taste brand loyal beer consumers demand," explained John Greiner, CSI Global Marketing Manager. "Also importantly, the CSI MB-Lok mini closures contain an oxygen-scavenging material that maximizes product freshness for consumers." 

The unbreakable, resealable PET package is perfect for sports venues, outdoor events and poolside entertaining. The compact closure features CSI's 'sure-grip' knurl design, which makes it easy for consumers to open and re-apply the cap for all usage occasions.
