Germany-based Poly-clip System has introduced the clip-tube, a new packaging as a cost-effective alternative to tubes.
The clip-tube is a tubular package clipped on each end, supplemented by an extrusion nozzle on a threaded end piece and a closure cap.
The material tension of conventional tubes sucks in air after each extrusion which could react with the content but clip-tube does not let it happen.
The cylindrical shape of the package permits a higher packing density in the box in only one work step, unlike in to conventional conical tubes.
It can be produced in pack sizes from 30 ml with diameters ranging from 18-50 mm, an advantage over conventional tubes.
