Effect Coatings for Extruded Tubes

Optical and haptic effects that inspire

Extruded tubes are particularly suitable as a packaging solution for high-end applications in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. Unlike laminate tubes, extruded tubes have no visible weld seam and can be printed 360 degrees, offering brand owners a wide range of design options. At the same time, they retain their shape even as they become increasingly empty.

Our effect coatings for extruded tubes meet all current regulations and offer brand owners a wide range of options for effectively showcasing their products at the point of sale.
