Screen-Shot-2016-02-04-at-16.25.13Anheuser-Busch has partnered with coatings and sealants manufacturer Actega to provide PVC-free bottle closure for the brewer to use in the Chinese market.

Actega will facilitate production of the PVC-free closure compounds by building an additional line at its site in Foshan, South China, extending its longstanding working relationship with US-based Anheuser-Busch.

As well as being PVC-free, the closures help to retain the taste of the beverage as they are specifically designed to prevent oxygen ingress in beverage products, even under difficult transportation conditions. At the same time, Actega said, they improve the retention of carbon dioxide inside the bottle and thus extend the beer’s shelf life.

Actega division president Dr. Roland Peter said: “We are looking forward to manufacturing our proven high-end products directly in China. This is an important new step in our long-term cooperation with Anheuser-Busch InBev.”

Anheuser-Busch is a brewing company founded and based in St. Louis, Missouri. Since 2008 it has been a wholly owned subsidiary of AB InBev. The company operates 12 breweries in the United States.

ACTEGA develops and produces specialty coatings, inks, adhesives and sealing compounds with a focus on the packaging, printing and medical industry. The business of ACTEGA is headquartered in Wesel, Germany, and operates manufacturing sites in Europe, the Americas and Asia.
