CCL Tube Inc. of Los Angeles has teamed with dispensing-systems manufacturer AptarGroup Inc. to offer precision dispensing in small- diameter tubes.
In a June 30 news release, CCL said the partnership integrates Crystal Lake, Ill.-based Aptar's Softips silicon-valve dispensing tips into CCL's personal-care tubes line.
Softips silicon-valve dispensing tips are available in two styles, the Pinpoint and Ribbontip. CCL will market tubes with the devices as an alternative to click pens, micropumps and ophthalmic-tip tubes.
A polypropylene closure base and overcap are available in standard white, natural and matching custom colors. In addition, the overcap is available with high-end finishes such as hot stamping and metal shells.
Softips are available in natural, white and custom colors.
CCL produces the new dispensing tubes in a standard tube size of three-fourths of an inch, with seven-eighths- and 1-inch versions in the works.
Tubes are manufactured in low, medium and high density polyethylene, in virgin and post-consumer grades. Labels can be silk-screened, hot-stamped or applied by pressure.
