FRONTRUNNERS IN INNOVATIONS
In 2010 we introduced flexo & silkscreen printing to the world of tube packaging, a revolutionary technique that became the standard that we know today.
Later that year we became the world's first tube producer to offer 100% bio-based packaging. We continued our search to a circular economy & offered a wide pallet of recycled tube solutions in, up to 100% recycled plastics. Since 2021 we are waste-neutral and offer a completely in-house operated pre-consumer (food-approved) recycled plastic stream.

SUSTAINABLE TUBE PACKAGING
Back in 2010, Multitubes' focus shifted to sustainability. We introduced 100% bio-based tubes. Just a few years later, we started trials with recycled tube packaging material and we currently offer a wide pallet of post-consumer recycled plastic and food-approved pre-consumer recycled plastic.
Many brands use ABL due to their demand of a high-barrier. However, ABL is non-recyclable due to its multi-material composition. We offer seven-layered extruded tubes. With this technique we are able to offer ABL-matching barriers, whilst having a 100% recyclable pack. Due to our ultra-strong EVOH, we are capable of remaining underneath 5% of EVOH, which is considered to be the standard for recycling companies worldwide.
With the introduction of our PE closures, customers have the possibility to have a 100% mono-material tube. We offer PE closures in (tamper-evident) fliptop version, multiple screw cap styles and lightweight closures.
Labelling is an amazing solution for some designs & it offers a high degree of flexibility. However, some clients don’t like the fact that it’s visible that the label is glued onto the tube. Therefore, we developed the non-label look, an overlapping label that is sealed onto the tube together with the label, so that the image appears to be printed onto the tube.
