Plastic Packaging Materials

Materials act as a great important role in packaging.  Here, we will be discussing some of the commonly used materials in our production. Just like with soap, there are many different options when it comes to packaging your products.

Choosing your shape, size and color wisely is very important, but it is also important to consider factors like durability and shippability, whether the material could be recycled, whether it is sustainably and responsibly sourced, and how you will fill the packages with your product. You must also take into consideration how the product will look with your label on it.

PP materials cosmetic bottles

PP

The material surface of PP (Polypropylene) is soft almost wax-like and tends to scratch easily. PP Shares many of the same characteristics as HDPE though PP is a stiffer material with a higher melting point. PP is manufactured in the same ways as used for all thermal plastics. Ask us about PP

PE material bottles

PE

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 PE

PET materials bottles

PET

Much like HDPE, PET is lightweight and relatively durable. Temperature resistance for PET ranges from -40°F to 120°F, which lends resistance to climate damage. Unlike HDPE, which has a cloudy appearance, PET is clear like glass and comes in a wide variety of colors, from cobalt blue and amber to crystal clear. PET is also easy to recycle, making it an environmentally friendly packaging decision. Ask us about PET

Aluminum material bottles

Aluminum

One of the best benefits of using aluminum cosmetic containers is that the material is recyclable. For companies that are interested in taking steps toward going green, this is one way to get started. Environmentally mindful consumers will be happy to see less plastic on the shelves. Choosing aluminum can be a great way to market a product as being better for the environment. Ask us about PET
