Laminate tubes are produced from a foil consisting of at least five different layers, including a barrier layer. The two longitudinal edges of the laminate are welded together resulting in the shape of the tube body. The tube body is then connected to the upper part of the shoulder and cap, thereby achieving a reliable and impermeable product. Depending on the content and packaged product, laminate tubes can have a barrier layer made from aluminum, plastics, ceramics or polyester (with transparent laminates). Today's market offers numerous innovations and variations of laminate with other barrier materials. Laminate tubes have excellent barrier material protecting product content and enabling high quality of print which can combine nearly all printing techniques (flexo printing, gold stamping, serigraphy, foil stamping, etc.).
We at Molvik manufacture laminate tubes mostly for the toothpaste market, but also for the packaging needs of the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry through our modern innovative solutions.
