A SANCAP Liner Technology product. Vinyl coated white paper. Vinyliner Plain is a pigmented vinyl chloride-acetate copolymer coating on a primed bleached Kraft paper. Color: White. Suggested product uses include after shave lotion, bleaching fluid, castor oil, cuticle remover, expectorant, eye wash, face cream, formaldehyde, glycerine, hair tonic, witch hazel, mineral oil, smelling salts, alcohols, fruit extracts, writing ink, shoe dressing and hydraulic brake fluid.
A material or liquid that has not been subjected to use or processing other than that required for its original manufacture.
A secondary closure or seal made of regenerated cellulose, applied in a wet state over the cork, metal or plastic cap that forms the primary closure, and then shrunk tight by drying. It is used to prevent tampering, to dress up the package, to provide brand identification, to aid the primary closure in preventing escape of products, to prevent cap from becoming unscrewed, etc.
Also known as displacement or capacity. (1) The amount of water displaced by a model of a container; used to estimate its capacity. (2) The amount of product a container is designed to hold, i.e., up to the fill-point of the container. (3) Also, the overflow capacity, i.e., amount of product a container will hold when filled to overflowing.
A small non-flexible v-shaped ring molded into a closure so that the v makes contact with the sealing surface (land) of the container's finish during normal sealing operations. The V-Seal requires compression to be effective. Most commonly used for sealing tubes.
Full Wax (W). Full wax treatment is generally used on wide mouth closures as a caulking agent. It is difficult for many liner facings to provide a satisfactory seal on wide mouth containers. The larger the finish, the greater the tolerance in both container and finish. Inherent waves and dips in large finishes also contribute to this condition. The full wax treatment is generally suggested for closures 58mm and above, primarily as a sealing aid. It also provides an additional moisture barrier and acts as a lubricant similar to the LW and LF coating treatments.
The central portion of a container which has a smaller cross-section than the adjacent areas.
Warehousing services are available.
A general defect. A series of horizontal waves or folds on the side of the bottle.
The term "water consumption" is used to indicate; 1) fresh water (excluding rain) that is mechanically diverted from a source and then used in such a way that it is not available again as liquid fresh water; or 2) water that is degraded during use such that it cannot be collected for reuse. The difference between water "use" and water "consumption" is that consumption causes the water to become unavailable for direct or immediate use. An example of water "use" is water used in paper production processes that is collected, processed and reused on site. An example of water "consumption" is water that evaporates during a production process. Another example of water consumption is water that becomes an ingredient of a final material such as that used in water-based ink.
The property of a material that permits water vapor to pass through its structure. This property has measurable values that can be determined under specified conditions of time, temperature and the water vapor pressure differential between two sides of a material or between two sides of material or between the inside and the outside of a container.
A general defect. Irregular surface on either the inside or outside of the container.
Wax is widely used as a component of liner facings and serves three principal functions: 1) Lubricates the facing. This prevents excessive adherence to the glass or plastic finish, which may cause closures to be difficult to remove. 2) Reduces vapor transmission. Many dry products are packaged using liners, which depend on wax entirely as the vapor barrier. 3) Acts as a caulking agent. On widemouth containers, the wax helps to compensate for surface variations in the container finish.
A closure for a container in which there is an interior recessed opening into which an applicator may be affixed.
A filling or compounding room where extreme measures are taken to assure product cleanliness. Also called clean room.

White Lined Pulpboard. A backing material to which facings are laminated in the manufacture of duplex liners. It is pulpboard that has a white lining on one side. Pulpboard is made up of virgin and reclaimed fibers. It is available in most thicknesses or specified by the customer.
Wide mouth describes any container having an opening roughly half of the diameter of the container to almost the full diameter size of the container.
A finish on a container, the diameter of the finish being large relative to the diameter of the body.
A finish defect. A finish which has excessive glass projecting upward from the inside edge of the finish (similar to an overpress) except that it does not extend above the sealing surface. It is sharp and could chip.
WLP is a backing material to which facings are laminated in the manufacture of duplex liners. It is pulpboard with a white paper facing and clay coating.
A general defect. A large fold on the outside of the bottle. Also called "lap".
Water vapor transmission rate. The actual rate of water vapor transmission used to compare water vapor barrier, wrapping, or container materials. Usually expressed in grams of water passing through 1 square meter of material in 24 hours at 100 F and 90% relative humidity. Rate may also be expressed in different units as grams per 100 square inches per 24 hours, etc., or under different conditions of temperature and relative humidity.
