SipSlide - The Scalable, Sustainable Alternative to Plastic Bottles

SipSlide is a 100% aluminum, reclosable end that can be seamed onto beverage cans using size 202 ends. It's a drop-in alternative for standard pull-tab can ends. 

Functionality of PET...

SipSlide is the world's first 100% aluminum reclosable can end built on a standard end shell.  It uses the same basic opening tab that consumers are used to, but with an innovative rotating shutter that allows the can to open and reclose liquid tight.

...Minus the Guilt

Cans are far more likely to get recycled than plastic bottles and consumers know it. Consumers will love the added convenience SipSlide offers and feel good about using a more environmentally friendly package!

Simple Design,
Serious Engineering

There has long been an interest in making beverage cans reclosable, yet few solutions are available. In cooperation with industry partners, SipSlide’s engineering team has successfully developed a reclosable end that meets industry performance, reliability, sustainability and cost requirements. In contrast to other solutions that incorporate plastic, the SipSlide design is deceptively simple and consists of just four metal parts: end-panel, shutter, lever and tab handle.

  • Based on industry standard size 202 CDL end shells

  • All parts made from industry standard aluminum sheet

  • Straightforward manufacturing and assembly

  • Less than 10% more aluminum than a standard SOT end

  • Proven, certified industry coatings

Boost Store Sales

SipSlide ends (SSE) offers consumers a premium packaging option that is ideal for boosting single or multipack unit sales in C-stores and supermarkets. It is also well suited to stadiums, resorts, boating and beachfront areas where glass is prohibited and plastic is discouraged.

Drop-in Solution on Standard Filling Lines

SipSlide ends nest tightly just like standard ends with no physical contact between the shutter above, and tab handle below.  A sleeve of SipSlide ends contains the same number as the equivalent sleeve of traditional ends.
