Guangzhou, Guangdong, China., June 28, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) -Tube packaging is evolving from a component that was basically used for mass market and personal care products to one that is now being used for cosmetic and treatment products. A tube is a superb package: It is economical, clean, very practical, it has good shelf life and it's convenient to hold.
A new laminated tube
was recently won an award from European Tube Manufacturers Association, because of its intricate decoration that combine two print technologies- photo-like graphics and Hot stamping.
This is owes to decoration and manufacturing advancements. Tube manufacturers
themselves have given companies greater options in color, decoration and dispensing systems. There is no longer just a basic screw-on cap.
The increased customization options available to brands have also driven an increase in the types of products utilizing tubes. It's evolved from a component that was basically used for mass market and personal care products to one that is now being used for cosmetic and treatment products.
Within the past decade, new printing techniques have been introduced that have improved the way tubes are decorated. Servotube, is one of new printing technique for 3D extruded plastic and aluminum cosmetic tubes
This printing technology uses both flexographic and screen printing principles on the same printing press and at high speed. Servotube technology has been implemented widely, because it can print perfect photographic quality which the photographic quality décor can up to 175 lines per inch in production. However, it will cost per print one third of the cost of a label on average.
It is worth mentioning that another new printing technology- Flex Tech, has introduced, which marketed as an alternative to labels. Flex Tech enables photographic printing quality directly on tubes and can also be used in combination with silkscreen processes and metallic printing.
Color expression is also an advancement of tube printing. More vibrant colors and complicated color matches are pushing the brand markets. This requires the use of dual-layer printing. The outside layer and inside layer of tube will be printed in different color, which is increasing the intensity of the color printed on the outside layer.
Vacuum packaging is for protecting the skincare products containing fat, retinol and vitamin. It is standing out because of these kind of excellent effects.
Although the high cost leads to a limited number of brands, the kind of packaging still has many advantages: strong protection, powerful recovery, easy to use high viscosity cream, and improves product’s class with its high-tech strength. Currently the normally used vacuum packaging is made of a cylindrical or round container with a piston inside.
The disadvantage is the piston or vacuum packaging makes the volume of packaging bigger, which is very unfavorable in this highly competitive packaging market, because every brand wants to create their own unique image by the shape and decoration of the products.
Under this situation, the lip balm tube packaging
system is standing out because it is applicable to all types of container. Tube vacuum system is made of aluminum, and it has a special pump with a pressing button, and this system is airless.
This kind of packaging makes a great success in the application of some well-known brands. Another important developing direction of vacuum packaging is outstanding functionality, and it is more important for those simple one. Now plastic tube packaging
fitted with distributing pumps and compressing cap can be seen everywhere. The dispensing pump system popular with consumers because of its convenience and soon won a big market.
