The SVELON® Family

Our PVC-free compounds for crown corks and aluminum closures

Our first SVELON® compound was introduced to the market more than 30 years ago. Today, the product family consists of several compounds with a fit for every filling good and type of crown cork and aluminum closure. Being PVC-free – made of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) material, this compound family aims to protect the end-consumer.

Unique family members of SVELON®

Today, sustainability is our main focus when developing new compounds. Reducing the metal thickness makes a valuable contribution. As part of the SVELON® family, we offer low gauge (LG) compounds. Their special properties enable our customers to have crown corks with thickness down to 0.18 mm - without compromising the performance of the crowns.
