Cosmetic tube introduction
Tubes are a very widely used cosmetic packaging material in cosmetic packaging. Among them, products such as facial cleansers and cleansers are the most used. In addition, other skin care products such as BB creams and gels are also used. The following is provided by cosmetics. Let us popularize the relevant knowledge about tubes.
1. The tube is divided into single-layer, double-layer, and five-layer tubes, which are different in terms of pressure resistance, anti-permeability and hand feeling. For example, the five-layer tube consists of an outer layer, an inner layer, and two adhesive layers. Barrier layer. Features: It has excellent gas barrier properties, which can effectively prevent the infiltration of oxygen and peculiar gas, and prevent the leakage of the fragrance and effective ingredients of the contents.
2. Double-layer pipes are more commonly used. Single-layer pipes can be used for medium and low-grade pipes. The diameter of the tube is 13#—60#. When a tube of a certain diameter is selected, different capacity characteristics are indicated by different lengths. , The volume can be adjusted at will from 3ml to 360ml. In order to be beautiful and coordinated, the caliber below 60ml is commonly used below 35#, 100ml, 150ml usually use 35#—45# caliber, and the capacity above 150ml needs to use 45# above caliber.
3. There are round tubes, elliptical tubes, flat tubes, and super flat tubes in process. Flat tube and super flat tube are more complicated than other tubes. They are also new types of tubes in recent years, so the price is correspondingly more expensive.
4. tube caps have various shapes, generally divided into flat caps, round caps, high caps, flip caps, super flat caps, double-layer caps, spherical caps, lipstick caps, and plastic caps can also be processed in a variety of processes, bronzing Edge, silver edge, colored cap, transparent, oil spray, electroplating, etc., pointed mouth caps and lipstick caps are usually equipped with inner plugs. tube caps are injection molded products and tubes are drawn tubes. Most tube manufacturers do not produce tube caps themselves.
5. Some products need to be filled before sealing. The sealing can be divided into: straight pattern sealing, diagonal pattern sealing, umbrella sealing, star point sealing, special-shaped sealing, and sealing can be required when sealing. Print the required date code at the end.
6. The tube can be made of colored tubes, transparent tubes, colored or transparent frosted, pearl tubes, and there are matte and bright points. The matte looks elegant but easy to get dirty. The difference between colored tubes and large-area printing on the tube body can be Judging from the cut at the tail, the white cut is a large-area printing tube, and the ink used is demanding, otherwise it will easily fall off and will crack and expose white marks after being folded.
7. The tube production cycle is generally 15 to 20 days (from the confirmation of the sample tube), the order quantity is 5,000 to 10,000, and the large-scale manufacturers usually order 10,000 as the minimum quantity, which is very small. If the manufacturer has a large variety, the single product can be ordered with a minimum order of 3,000. Few customers open the molds by themselves. Most of them are public molds (a few characteristic lids are private molds). The contracted and actual supply quantities. There is a deviation of ±10% in this industry.
8. There are big differences in the quality of the tube and the price of different manufacturers. The plate-making fee is usually 200 yuan-300 yuan. The tube body can be multi-color printing and silk screen printing. Individual manufacturers have thermal transfer equipment and technology. Bronzing and silver bronzing are calculated based on the unit price of the area. The silk-screen printing effect is better, the cost is more expensive and there are fewer manufacturers. Different manufacturers should be selected according to the needs of different levels.
9. Combination form:
A: tube + outer cover / tube often uses PE plastic. According to the thickness of the product, it is divided into single-layer pipe (mostly used, lower cost) and double-layer pipe (good sealing performance). According to the shape of the product, it is divided into round tubes (mostly used, lower cost), flat tubes, also known as special-shaped tubes (requires secondary joints, higher cost). The outer cover of the tube often includes a screw cap (single-layer and double-layer, the double-layer outer cover is mostly electroplated to increase the product grade, which looks more beautiful, and the professional line usually uses the screw cap) and flip cover.
B. Production process:   Bottle body: direct production of plastic products with added colors, colored and multi-purpose, and some are transparent, which is less used. Printing: screen printing (using spot colors, small and few color blocks, the same as the printing method of plastic bottles, requiring color registration, commonly used in professional line products) and offset printing (similar to paper printing, large color blocks and many colors, daily chemical Thread products are commonly used.) There are bronzing and silver bronzing.
