Are you searching for the right plastic container for your line of products? At APG, we offer tube containers in a variety of sizes, shapes, and head styles. If you need plastic tube containers with screw-on lids, and threaded packaging tubes, you're sure to find the best options in our inventory.
We have a full line of cosmetic tubes, test tubes, and a variety of tubes for skincare products. You can pick up plastic tubes with screw-on lids in any size. Plus you have unlimited design options and surface finishes.
Not only that, but we can also create custom packaging containers with your logo or another image on the bottle. Before you decide, here's everything you need to know about our plastic tube containers with screw-on lids, and more.
Manufacturing Plastic Tube Containers
Injection molding is a manufacturing process to fabricate plastics into everything from automotive body parts, to water bottles, and plastic containers for make-up. This quick process creates identical plastic pieces, with flexible shape and size possibilities. Thanks to injection molding, we have limitless design options in plastics manufacturing.
We also can choose other alternatives to traditional plastics in our manufacturing process.
Additionally, we use a type of plastic called polypropylene, or PP because of the strength of the material. It's also chemical resistance to ensure that the product doesn't get contaminated. Using PP is more eco-friendly, as well, since it uses less resin than most plastics and is recyclable too.
Empty plastic jars can easily fill landfills, which makes our PP plastic threaded tube packaging containers an excellent choice.
PVC Plastic Tubes
On the other hand, you'll also find plastic PVC tubes with lids. Here's the thing, these days we can use polyvinyl chloride AKA PVC plastic that isn't harmful like traditional PVC. Using plasticizers such as vegetable oils, citrates, and other bio-based plasticizers make the PVC softer, easier to work with, and much less brittle.
Not only that, but the bio-based plasticizers make the plastic tubes much more environmentally friendly, and recyclable.
You might assume that PET plastics are something you use if you're a pet supply manufacturer. On the contrary, PET AKA polyethylene terephthalate is polyester's scientific name. These days we use this clear, durable, and lightweight plastic for everything from packaging foods and beverages, to packaging mouthwash, shampoo, window cleaner, and makeup. The ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid, form spaghetti-like strands of PET are extruded then we cut into small pellets.
Then we heat the PET plastics into a molten liquid that we can mold into almost any shape.
Now, not all cosmetics tubes today are plastic. In fact, we can manufacture collapsible tubes from aluminum, too. The opaque metal helps protect the product from ultraviolet rays which can cause negative effects on the product inside.
Additionally bamboo casings and even paper are all options. Ultimately, plastic tube containers with screw-on lids can be a combination of materials.
Plastic Tube Containers With Screw-on Lids
Whether you're searching for a plastic vial, threaded tube packaging containers, or even a plastic test tube or test tube with a cap, we have options for you. Our plastic tube containers with screw-on lids come in a selection of styles, as well as a wide variety of fill capacities.
For example, take a look at our HDPE 360 Rotation Atomizer for serums, creams, lotions, skin-care, moisturizers, and more. It's the perfect bottle and cap combination for creating a fine mist spray.
Filling Empty Plastic Containers
When it comes to filling flexible squeeze tubes for creams and gels, using a machine that seals the tube after filling it is the best option. Adding the product from the base of the tube pushes the product up towards the nozzle. Then it's heat-sealed, and trimmed leaving a perfectly smooth plastic tube.
Of course, you can also fill the plastic tubes manually if you have small runs. For example, if you make lip balm, you can pour melted product directly into lipstick tubes and cap it once it's set. Another method is using a syringe for a more controlled, cleaner fill.
What's more, we offer refillable containers. If you operate an eco-friendly company, offering refillable empty plastic packaging containers with your logo could be an excellent source of branding.
Pick Your Packaging Containers
Let's take a look at some of the options you have in empty plastic containers. First off, you may want screw lids with children resistant packaging. PET plastic packaging containers are an excellent choice for safety on a range of products from spray caps to dropper caps.
However, you'll want to think about what types of products are best suited for screw lids that are child-resistant. Plastic containers work best over time. But always keep in mind that plastic jar caps must be the right size to fit properly and not jeopardize the integrity of what's inside the bottle.
We offer a variety of tubes with lids, as well. From lip balm containers such as our Shimmer Hexagonal Aqua Green Lipstick Case to plastic pup bottles. We even have an off the shelf environmentally friendly bamboo jar with a plastic jar inner liner and an anti-leak plastic top.
Bamboo is a gorgeous addition for enhancing your products. You may want to consider using bamboo with plastic liners for branding if you have an eco-friendly company. The perception of bamboo in the cosmetic and self-care industries is sustainability as well as luxury.
Now, you may want to offer smaller containers for travel. Or you could let your customers try products in smaller containers so they decide if they like it. We can also supply a plastic test tube with a cap to use as you develop your formulas.
