In order to convey the product benefits and value of a product, the packaging takes on an important role. The look and feel of a tube gives a first impression of the quality of the product and reflects the product promise.

In addition, the packaging must meet health criteria as well as legal requirements. Our effect coatings meet all current regulations and offer brand owners new, diverse options for presenting their products impressively at the point of sale.

„With our decorative effect coatings, we offer tube manufacturers a variety of ways to transform their products into a visual and tactile experience.”

Our WESSCO® POLAR UV Silver products are a sustainable and – at the same time – economical alternative to metallized board or hot and cold foil stamping. The highly reflective, brilliantly glossy surfaces are comparable in effect and, thanks to various silver qualities, offer a wide range of options for giving your tube the perfect finish.

Tubes and their contribution to greater sustainability

Sustainability is no longer just a trend for the packaging industry, but an obligation when it comes to developing product solutions. The challenge is to balance aesthetics and design with solutions that are sustainable and environmentally friendly.

The use of tubes instead of conventional plastic packaging reduces the raw material requirements of a package and thus makes a significant contribution to reducing the CO2 footprint. In addition, unlike other packaging, tubes can be emptied almost completely. This facilitates environmentally friendly recycling.

Wide range of options for any type of tube

Our portfolio does not only include effect coatings for laminate tubes, but also for extruded tubes. These products offer the same high-quality standards.
