ABS Plastic (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) This is the standard lid we have always supplied with jars. ABS is easily recyclable. It’s a great choice for candle jars and cosmetics, oils, creams etc. ABS is commonly used today as a good middle ground option for a large number of applications such lids for Jars, computer keys, Lego toys, power tool housing and 3d Printing. All ABS lids are sold with foam wadding.
Foam Liner – polypropylene lining has excellent sealing properties. They offer good chemical resistance including cosmetics, household oils, acids, alcohols, alkalis, aqueous products, and solvents.
Bakelite is a super tough rigid chemical resistant plastic. It’s a great choice for long term use such as spice jars and other storage applications. Bakelite lids have a satin finish look (not as glossy as ABS). Bakelite lids are sold with Vinyl coated pulp board wadding.
Vinyl Lined Pulp Board
The liner is made of a vinyl coating applied to high density coated paper and then it is laminated to pulpboard. Commonly used for cosmetics, food, beverage, medical and chemicals including mild acids, alkalis, solvents, alcohols, oils and aqueous products.
Do Not submerge in water. If left in water the vinyl may delaminate
As always we recommend thoroughly testing all jars, bottles and closures for your application.
