Eight percent growth potential 
Braskem has unified its products in the Caps & Closures segment to better serve its clients worldwide with solutions in Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Renewables and Post-Consumer Resins (PCR).  This market segment has grown four percent annually for the last ten years and has the potential to an additional eight percent annually in the future.  To showcase the diversity and potential of its portfolio, Braskem is showcasing several cap solutions for carbonated beverages, water, food and home & personal care to K Fair. 

"We have the most comprehensive portfolio in the market, with solutions in PE, PP, PCR and Renewables, serving the beverage, H&PC, food and industrial applications", says Pier Pesce, responsible for the caps and closures segment in South America.  

A portfolio with a positive impact 
In 2018, Braskem undertook a public commitment to advance and contribute to the Circular Economy . In line with this commitment, the company's Caps and Closures segment is helping to reduce food waste by using resins that increase product shelf life, in addition to producing lighter-weight and recyclable caps and closures. 

New technical solutions
"The products in our Caps and Closures portfolio meet all of the segment's technical requirements, such as lightweight, processability, product safety, taste and odor control" adds Lukasz Golebiowski, responsible for Caps and Closures segment in Europe. For the beverage market, Braskem offers solutions for carbonated beverages that can be molded through injection or compression processes by using polyethylene and polypropylene resins. In the mineral water market, Braskem rigorously controls the resin's organoleptic properties to ensure the beverage's properties related to odor, flavor and color remain unchanged.
