Topline Products Co. Inc., a Wayne, N.J.-based packaging maker, has teamed with tube injection molder Viva Healthcare to market tubes with in-mold labeling, targeting the personal-care and cosmetics markets.
Viva created the process which, according to Topline, combines decorating and molding of PP tubes, embedding photograph-quality artwork in eye-catching graphics that cover the entire surface of the tube, even the crimp area.
“The gravure-printed labels can be combined with EVOH or an aluminum foil barrier to offer great shelf impact and excellent product-protection properties, all at a very competitive cost,” said Topline President Charles Chang.
By the end of this year, Viva Healthcare will have equipped a dozen injection presses with IML in its factories in China and Canada. Each plant can produce 3.6 million tubes per month.
