TricorBraun has introduced a new lightweight, low-profile tube and closure solution that aims to improve sustainability, logistic efficiencies and costs while reducing lead times –– all without requiring brand owners to change their filling operations or consumers to change their use behaviors.
TricorBraun partnered with Silgan Tubes to develop a unique, snap-on tube head weighing as much as 30 percent less than a similar-sized traditional tube heads. TricorBraun also has the exclusive rights in North America to Italian closure manufacturer Giflor range of products. Giflor developed a new, eco low-profile flip top closure that weighs 50 percent less than a similar-diameter traditional closure. The resulting Eco low-profile tube/closure solution is a minimum of up to 30 percent lighter than traditional combinations holding the same volume of product.
