Plastic Perfume Cap Vs. Zamac Perfume Cap, Which One is Better for Your Brand?

Zamac perfume cap:Zamac is alloys based on zinc added with other elements. Alloying elements commonly added include low-temperature zamac such as copper, aluminum, cadmium, magnesium, lead, and titanium. Zamac has a low melting point, easy fusion welding, good fluidity, brazing, and plastic processing. And it is resistant to corrosion in the atmosphere. Its residue is easy to be recycled and remelted, but its creep strength is low. So it is easy to cause dimensional change due to natural aging. It is made by melting, die casting, or pressure processing. This material is widely used in the metal fitting industry and also very popular in the perfume industry.

For zamac materials, it is essential to understand and use high-purity zamac. According to the history of zamac die-casting, there were big problems in producing early zamac die-casting materials, such as poor corrosion resistance caused by harsh environmental conditions and impurities in the alloy. Therefore, it is recommended that the supplier of perfume materials should choose the best zamac material. Simultaneously, the chemical composition of zamac should meet the American Standard, and the zinc content is more than 95%, which ensures that the high-quality zamac cap comes from raw materials.

Plastic perfume cap: Plastic perfume cap is generally divided into PP and PE in terms of material, including ABS, Surlyn, Acrylic, etc. Tough plastics provide superior sealing integrity for the perfume packaging industry. Its low-temperature sealing ability, excellent thermal adhesive strength, and wide sealing range in the industry make it a reliable choice for solving leakage, improving packaging line speed, over contamination sealing, difficult sealing conditions, and improving efficiency.

Zamac perfume caps can be electroplated in any color. And a layer of frame oil will be added to the electroplated surface. This oil layer has a certain protective effect on the product’s surface because it passes through high temperature. Under normal use, the color will not fade within 3 years. The price is determined according to the size of the product and the color of the surface plating.

To avoid the potential issue of PP insert falling off after long time usage, the new improvement is to assemble zamac cap and its PP insert by rivet. At the same time, it can prevent various problems caused by transportation or extreme weather.

Plastic perfume cap The most notable feature is the low cost and flexibility of plastic perfume cap, which integrates many materials’ advantages.

Plastic perfume caps can be applied to many surface treatments, such as UV, metallization, water transfer printing, and so on. The plastic perfume cap is flexible and can achieve a delicate and complex high-precision design. Zamac perfume cap may not be easy to do this. Many perfume designers like to use plastic perfume caps with metal inside in recent years, which look similar to expensive zamac quality and are very cost-effective. Plastic perfume caps are a good choice for mid-market and complex design projects.
