H.S. Crocker CrockerCote® and CrockerShield Plus®

H.S. Crocker has spent several years working toward the development of a non-foil lid. The trend to non-foil lidding to take advantage of metal detection systems is why we have developed special non-foil lids.

We have non-foil lidding and are working everyday to expand the capabilities of our new lidding structure so that it has various family members each of which will serve the market place with its special requirements.

  • All of H.S. Crocker non-foils can be recycled.
  • Less weight compared to foil – this represents less transportation costs – thereby reducing pollution.
  • CrockerCote® renewable material content is 71%.
  • CrockerShield Plus® and plastic, recycle symbol is #1.
  • For single serve items – CrockerCote® and CrockerShield Plus® can aid in removal of plastic overcaps.

Our current CrockerCote®, CrockerShield Plus® materials offer added capabilities to our customers. Our goal is to offer outstanding non-foil products to meet our customer needs. Please give us a call or send an e-mail and a sales representative will be happy to work with you.
