Bottle caps are a type of closure used to seal the openings of bottles of many types. They can be small circular pieces of metal, usually steel, with plastic backings, and for plastic bottles a plastic cap is used instead. A bottle cap is typically colorfully decorated with the logo of the brand of beverage. Caps can also be plastic, sometimes with a pour spout. Flip-Top caps like Flapper closures provide controlled dispensing of dry products. Bottle caps for plastic bottles are often made of a different type of plastic than the bottle.
Bottle caps were originally designed to be pressed over and around the top of a glass bottle to grab a small flange on the bottleneck.
The first milk-bottle-capping machine was designed, built, and overall invented by a Polish man named Menachem Wallach.
Milk bottle top
A milk bottle top is a lid to a milk bottle. They are usually colour-coded to show the consumer the different varieties of milk, especially the flavour or fat content. This colour-coding tends to vary between, but is usually consistent within, countries.
