Reduced Gauge Crown (RGC)
A Smarter, Lighter and More Environment-Friendly Cap
World Bottling Cap markets and sells the Reduced Gauge Crown (RGC), a lower cost replacement for the traditional pry-off and twist-off crown cap by reducing all materials used in the manufacturing of the RGC.
The patented structural design of the lightweight RGC does not sacrifice any structural or sealing capabilities. It lowers manufacturing costs by reducing the gauge of tinplate and liner material used on the traditional pry-off and twist off cap from 0.21mm – 0.24mm to 0.17mm – 0.18mm. This provides an estimated 15 percent savings in tinplate and liner materials.
