SERVICES

MATERIALS

Balancing the Brands vision with package compatibility can have a large impact on the materials used for your package. We offer a wide range of materials that can be used in stock packages from plastic, PCR, glass, aluminum and bamboo as examples, and we are happy to consult and provide guidance on material selection & decoration based on your Brands needs.

 

Not sure what materials to use? Our engineering experts can help advise you here.

Materials_PP

PP

Polypropylene

Its properties come in a wide range and its more heat resistant than PE. It is often white, but is also available in clarified grades with excellent contact clarity. PP is offered in a wide range of properties that enable it to be used for products with high impact requirements and long term dimensional stability needs, and has a high chemical resistance. PP is the third most widely produced commodity plastic (after PE) and it is often used in packaging and labeling. Ask us about PP PCR


Materials_PE

PE

Polyethylene

PE is one of the most widely produced plastics in the world. It is available in LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene), LDPE (low density), MDPE (medium density) and HDPE (high density). From soft and flexible to hard and sturdy, the various grades of polyethylene offer a wide range of properties that can be utilized based on your package’s requirements. Ask us about PCR for blow molding.


Materials_PET

PET

Polyethylene Terephthalate

PET is the most recycled material in the world, and features excellent clarity and chemical resistance. The material can be utilized in several processes such as injection molding, blow molding, injection blow molding (IBM), and injection stretch blow molding (ISBM). Ask us about PCR for blow molding


Materials_PETG

PETG/PCTA/PCTG

Copolymers

These materials are amorphous copolymer thermoplastics with above average chemical resistances when compared to other amorphous materials such as ABS or PMMA. They have excellent physical properties for a wide variety of packaging types and offer superior clarity over clarified PP.


Materials_PMMA

PMMA

Poly Methyl Methacrylate

PMMA, also known as acrylic, is a transparent thermoplastic often used in form as a lightweight or shatter-resistant alternative to glass. It’s commonly used as an outer jar or outer bottle due to its high clarity. PMMA is also known as plastic glass.


Materials_ABS

ABS

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene

ABS is an alloy type material that brings high gloss, impact resistance and good mold-ability due to its three main components. ABS decorates very easily in any of the many decoration process’s available. ABS plastic is recyclable, having strong impact resistance, heat and acid chemical resistance.


Materials_Aluminum

ALUMINUM

Not only is aluminum strong at eliminating unwanted environmental factors, it is also flexible enough that it can take on whatever shape the primary package calls for, while giving products a luxurious look and feel.


Materials_Glass

GLASS

Glass is a non-crystalline amorphous solid that is often transparent. Glass can be molded and decorated in statement-making ways, and offers excellent chemical resistance and barrier properties for packaging.


Materials_Bamboo

BAMBOO/WOOD

Bamboo, and wood in general, is a natural and renewable material that can be used as a nice statement piece in your packaging. It can be made into different shapes according to your needs.


Materials_PCR

PCR MATERIAL

PCR is an acronym for Post-Consumer Recycle, which has become more and more sought after and is commonly misunderstood and associated with other forms of recycle.

DECORATION

Another important factor in achieving your desired look is in the way your packaging is finished.

 

We offer many different options for you to choose from, including in-mold color, inner and outer sprays, metallization, and spray finishes like pearl, matte, soft touch, glossy, and frosted.

Finishing_InMold
IN-MOLD COLOR

Injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting heated and mixed material, such as glass and plastics, into a mold where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity. This is the perfect time to have your desired color be a part of the material itself, rather than added later.


Finishing_Spray
INNER/OUTER SPRAY

Spray coating a container offers the ability to create a customized color, design, texture, or all – on either glass or plastic. As the name suggests, in this process containers are sprayed to attain the desired effect — from a frosted look, a textured feel, a single custom color background for further design finishing, or in any conceivable design combination with multiple colors, fades or gradients.


Finishing_VM
METALIZING

This technique replicates the look of clean chrome on containers. The process involves heating a metallic material in a vacuum chamber until it starts to evaporate. The vaporized metal condenses on and bonds to the container, which is being rotated to help ensure uniform application. After the metalizing process is completed, a protective topcoat is applied to the container.


Finishing_Emboss-Deboss
EMBOSSING & DEBOSSING

Embossing creates a raised image and debossing creates a recessed image. These techniques add branding value to the package by creating a unique logo design that consumers can touch and feel.


Finishing_HTL
HEAT TRANSFER

This decorating technique is another way of applying silk screen. The ink is transferred to the part through pressure and a heated silicone roller or die. For multiple colors or labels with half-tones, heat transfer labels can be used which will provide color quality, registration and competitive pricing.


Finishing_Water
WATER TRANSFER

Hydro-graphics, also known as immersion printing, water transfer printing, water transfer imaging, hydro dipping or cubic printing, is a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces. The hydrographic process can be used on metal, plastic, glass, hard woods, and various other materials.


Finishing_UV
UV COATING

In the cosmetics, beauty, and personal care business, packaging is also about fashion. UV coating plays a significant role in making your package standout on the retail shelves.

Whether it is a frosty texture or a shiny surface, coating gives your package a certain attractive look.


Finishing_Stamping
HOT/FOIL STAMPING

Hot stamping is a technique in which colored foil is applied to the surface through a combination of heat and pressure. Hot stamping produces a shiny and luxurious appearance on cosmetic tubes, bottles, jars, and other closures. Colored foils are often gold and silver, but brushed aluminum & opaque colors are also available, ideal for a signature design.


PRINTING

Lastly, the final piece of the puzzle that is your unique look is how your branding and product information are printed onto your packaging. Here, we offer a full range of options, including silk screening, offset printing, HTL/Heat Transfer Label, hot stamping, and laser etching.

Printing_Silkscreen
SILK SCREEN

Silk screening is the process in which ink is pressed through a photographically treated screen onto the surface. One color is applied at a time, with one screen for one color. The number of colors required determine how many passes are needed for silk screen printing. You can feel the texture of printed graphics on the decorated surface.


Finishing_Offset
OFFSET PRINTING

Offset printing uses printing plates to transfer ink onto the containers. This technique is more precise than silkscreen printing and is effective for multi colors (up to 8 colors) and halftone artwork. This process is available for tubes only. You will not feel the texture of printed graphics but there is one over-lapping color line on the tube.
