Hoffmann Neopac AG, a global provider of high-quality packaging and dosing applications for pharma, beauty and oral care with a presence in India, has introduced a new range of LowPro Flip-Top Caps compatible with its sustainable range of tubes. A significant stride in Hoffman Neopac’s expanding portfolio of eco-conscious packaging solutions, the series premiered at Paris Packaging Week, January 17-18.
Acknowledging the diverse needs of its customers, the LowPro Caps are available in PP, PE, and up to 40% rPE food-grade material. Customers can choose between a glossy or matte finish, allowing brands to tailor their packaging to match their design ethos. The LowPro Caps are engineered to seamlessly integrate with an assortment of Neopac’s sustainable tube offerings.
These include 35-50mm-diameter extruded tubes crafted from sugarcane, recycled resins, and PICEA spruce wood materials.
The 35-50mm-diameter Polyfoil EcoPro tubes feature a noteworthy 60% post-consumer recycled (PCR) content. There are 35-50mm-diameter mono-material Polyfoil® MMB tubes with food contact layers, catering to the stringent requirements of the pharmaceuticals and food industries.
Then there are 40-50mm-diameter PaperX fiber-based tubes and SpringTube, specially designed for cosmetic and oral care applications, offering a unique blend of aesthetic appeal and environmental responsibility.
Several safety features can be incorporated into Neopac’s LowPro Caps. For example, its tubes manufactured in the EU can include tamper evident (TE) stickers and sleeves, ensuring product integrity and consumer trust. The Indian LowPro cap portfolio comes with sleeves.
“Neopac is committed to materials reduction and incorporating high quality recycled resins in all of its offerings – including caps, which have been historically challenging from a stress corrosion cracking standpoint,” said Catherine Bismuth, head of cosmetics for Hoffmann Neopac AG. “By pairing an extensive range of LowPro Caps with our diverse EcoDesign tubes series, we continue to broaden the functionality and versatility of our lightweight packaging solutions.”
