Specialty & Custom Materials
We can customize any artwork, tube style, and size to fit your needs for any industry including personal care, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and food insutries. Specializing in bespoke orders is what Top Tubes thrive from. We offer different barrier strengths and thicknesses to comply with any specifications and supply the best tube packaging you can find. Manufactured with state-of-the-art technology, our plastic laminated tubes combine beauty with functionality.
Extruded Plastic Tubes
Top Tubes offers a wide range of highly decorated PE-based (extruded from pure polyethylene) plastic tubes. We create tubes for a variety of purposes and densities.
- PE-HD (high-density)
- PE-MD (medium-density)
- PE-LD (low-density)
- PE-LLD (linear-density)
We offer mono-layer, two-layer (asymmetric), and multi-layer tubes. Each type is created to allow the product to be stored, presented, and used in its best condition.
Co-extruded (COEX), also known as multi-layer laminated tubes, are plastic tubes with three to five layers. Due to the number of barriers, which are made of EVOH, they protect well against outside elements, such as oxygen, gases, and oils. Compared to plastic mono-layer tubes, COEX tubes are generally less permeable and more resistant to chemicals. Plastic tubing is the preferred container for cosmetic, personal, hair care, oral hygiene, food, and semi pharmaceutical products. Each type of laminated tubes is specifically made for the individual product to ensure the content inside is kept in peak condition.
Laminate Tubes (ABL & PBL)
Aluminum Barrier Laminate (ABL)
ABL tubes are a five-layered laminate which have an aluminum foil barrier in the center. This provides protection and strong rigidity for the tube’s structure. In addition, it is a great barrier against light, air, and moisture. ABL is commonly used for pharmaceutical, food, and cosmetic products.
Plastic Barrier Laminate (PBL)
PBL structure is a common option for packaging that needs to maintain its form and shape. This is often the go-to choice for cosmetic products that require a custom finish and look. PBL’s are also five-layered laminated. EVOH (Ethylene-Vinyl Alcohol Polymer) is used in PBL tubes to provide a barrier for any air, oil, or chemical transfers through the layers of the tube.
