Graham Packaging Produces Standard Bottle Mold for Infection Control
Graham Packaging (York, PA) has produced a new standard PET bottle mold for antibacterial gels and sprays out of its Chalgrove Plant in the United Kingdom. The flat-sided 95-ml oval container has a 20 SP410 neck finish to suit either a flip top or pump spray closure.
The “Catch It, Bin It, Kill It” campaign in the United Kingdom aims to disrupt the spread of disease, such as influenza. One approach to reducing the risk of infection is to use antibacterial products.
Neil Kerrod, sales manager at the Chalgrove Plant, said in a press release, “Companies, schools, hospitals, and any location at which people congregate is a potential source of infection. We can now supply this market with a range of appropriate containers quickly and at minimal cost.” Companies can launch infection-control products with no capital investment in bottle production, the Graham Packaging reports. The Chalgrove plant has an available stock of the containers to reduce delivery times to a minimum.
In addition, the company has available a standard 500-ml handwash bottle with a 28-mm neck to a take a pump dispenser.
The Blackstone Group of New York is the majority owner of Graham Packaging.
