We manufacture almost every component of the tube in-house. It allows us to answer flexibly on your demand, and we can realize fast time-to-markets. Our competence includes extruding mono-layer, 2-7 multi-layer tubes, or making multi-layer barrier web. We produce injection molded shoulders and screw or flip-top caps. To finish your tube packaging with a unique look and feel, we master high-quality printing and decoration options.
PE tubes with mono-layer, 2-layers, or 3-layers are seamlessly extruded from polyethylene. We use PE-HD (High-Density Polyethylene), PE-LD (Low-Density Polyethylene), PE-LLD (Linear Low-Density Polyethylene), or a combination of the above to achieve the desired feel. Mono-layer plastic tubes are ideal for products that do not have specific requirements concerning barriers.
Co-extruded tubes are seamless PE tubes with up to five layers, also called multi-layer tubes. They usually come with a barrier layer made of EVOH and/or sandwiched PCR material. They protect well against oxygen, gases, solvents, and oils. Compared to PE mono-layer tubes, COEX tubes with EVOH are less permeable and more resistant to chemicals, which fits well with more demanding formulas.
Plastic-Barrier-Laminated tubes consist of a thin-walled multi-layer flat substrate made of blown film, extruded film, or adhesive film laminates with up to 7 layers. The barrier used is usually EVOH. Our laminate tubes have an overlapping seam. When squeezed, they collapse. They are the right good choice for small-budget products in the sectors of DIY, arts and colors, or mass toiletries.
Springtube® is a premium tube for beauty and healthcare brands that want to stand out. It combines our 7-layer flat extrusion technology with the latest 360° decorative options such as low migration digital printing, flexographic printing, and foiling. With no gap or overlap by design! It offers unlimited customization possibilities – down to 1 singular tube with variable data printing or with a fully colored body. Springtubes keep their shape and are broadly compatible with beauty and health products thanks to their barrier layer. From every component to the final tube; fully made in-house.
