ALUMINIUM TUBES

Ever since their invention in 1913 the aluminium tube has been the ultimate benchmark for tubes. It not only protects the fill good from external influences but is also unbreakable and pleasing to the eye. Above all, the aluminium tube is a highly sustainable packaging solution.

For sensitive and valuable products the aluminium tube certainly is the best choice.

Natural aluminium is well-known for its sophisticated look. Moreover, the various decoration possibilities of aluminium are an advantage. Our aluminium tubes are directly printed on inline with 6 to 8 colours, rendering additional labelling obsolete.

Aluminium has excellent barrier properties. The filling is optimally protected from light, oxygen and harmful external influences. At the same time, the aroma of the filling is preserved.

Unlike plastic or laminate tubes, aluminium tubes are not affected by suck back of air after the product is dispensed. Therefore, neither oxygen nor microorganisms get drawn into the tube thus minimizing the risk of contamination. In order to achieve even higher hygiene standards, aluminium tubes can be sterilized with steam, EO gas or gamma radiation.

    MATERIAL

    For our aluminium tubes we use pure aluminium (99.7% aluminium). Aluminium is a very sustainable raw material, as it can be recycled indefinitely without quality loss. The recycling process consumes only a fraction of the energy needed for primary production.

    DIAMETERS AND LENGTHS

    Our aluminium tubes are available with different diameters from 9.8 - 45.0 mm and the corresponding lengths from 40 – 230 mm. For all diameters between 13.5 and 40.0 mm we offer conical tube shapes as well. An overview about the possible combinations of diameters and lengths can be found in our data sheet.

    THREADS AND CLOSURES

    We are able to offer a broad variety of different threads and matching closures, e.g. with integrated membrane, plastic or metal nozzles, tamper-evident closures, sponge applicators, or flip-top closures. A more detailed overview about the possible threads and closures can be found in our data sheet.

    DECORATION

    We directly print our aluminium tubes in-line with up to 7 colours. Our process is indirect offset printing, where all colors are consecutively printed on an offset blanket, from where they are then transferred onto the tube. The printing plates for this technique are laterally correct offset printing plates made of plastic with a steel surface. The grid width is 54 lpcm or 133 lpi. Positive scripture can be depicted with a minimum of 4 pt, negative scripture with a minimum of 6 pt. More information regarding our printing and decoration capabilities can be found in the printing data checklist. For questions that go beyond the information provided in this document, our competent in-house pre press department will gladly assist and advise you.
