KP Laminate Tube Features


ABL(Aluminum barrier laminate tube)

If the oxygen and water vapor transition rates of regular polyethylene (PE) is 1, those of aluminum (AL) foils used for our ABL (aluminum barrier laminate) tubes is nearly 0. This foil covers the entire surface of ABL tubes except for the cap and shoulder parts. Its barrier effect is a lot superior to regular poly and extrusion tubes. This will ensure extended shelf life of the main product.
Also, cosmetics and FMCG manufacturers could take advantage of the metallic appearance of this foil. This is much more cost efficient than hot or cold stamping.

These transparent and opaque laminates possesses very robust barrier protection property, second to ABL. PBL consists of plastic barrier, having the elasticity and processability of plastics.
