packaging tubeSilgan Plastics has developed a lightweight, low-profile polyethylene tube that requires significantly less resin to produce than traditional offerings. The tube features a low-profile snap-on tube head that accommodates a low-profile 50mm polypropylene Giflor flip-top tube closure, sourced by TricorBraun. The resulting tube/closure combination is designed to improve sustainability, increase logistic efficiencies and lower costs — all without requiring brand owners to change their filling operations or consumers to change their usage behaviors.
