How to recognize and choose plastic bottle cap mould? One of the foremost points is to observe the final bottle caps.

Plastic bottle cap general knowledge:

1. Specification:

1) Internal dimension:(± 0.15mm), thread inner diameter,inner-plug outer diameter, top thickness;  

2) External Dimension (± 0.30mm): Cap Outer diameter,Cap height;

3) Others: Weight (± 0.1g).

2. Appearance:

1) Surface: Complete shape. Without starving, injury, flare, and out of shape.

2) Color: meet the tolerance of sample, even color.

3) Sealing: Without injury, distortion.

4) Lateral seal/ top seal: No bubble or injury.

5) Thread: Not less than thread inner diameter lower limit.

6) Cap slitting: No breakpoints, conglutination orstarving. 

7) Injection gate: Nocracks, holes, injection gate residue, or sink marks.

8) Pollution: No oil marks, dirt, stains, etc.

9) Printing: Clear pattern, no printing lack or other defects, meet the tolerance of ink and pattern requirement, off-center tolerance value ± 0.3mm.
