Different Types of Squeeze Tubes: Extruded Plastic Tubes, ABL Laminated Tubes & PBL Laminated Tubes

While squeeze tubes are available in many different sizes, capacities, shapes and colors with a variety of neck and cap choices, the first decision you need to make for your squeeze tubes is the type of material and manufacturing method of the tubes themselves.

The choice of squeeze tube material and method of construction depends on your product needs and marketing requirements.

Extruded Plastic Squeeze Tubes

Extruded plastic squeeze tubes are formed as one piece cylinders during the manufacturing process. The cylinders are cut to length and the head / neck attached. This results in a beautiful, seamless product that is ideal for hand creams, shampoos, cosmetic and oral care products.

  • • LLDPE
  • • LDPE
  • • MDPE
  • • HDPE

Laminated Squeeze Tubes (ABL & PBL)

Laminated squeeze tubes start as a 5-layer, flat sheet of laminated plastic and / or aluminum. The laminate is printed then rolled and sealed on the side to form a tube. The cylinder is then joined to the tube neck. Laminated tubes have excellent barrier properties and are available in two general types:

    ABL (Aluminum Barrier Laminate) – available in base finishes of white, silver and pearl
    PBL (Plastic Barrier Laminate) – available in base finishes of white, transparent, pms colors, and pearl

Laminated squeeze tubes can be printed up to 6 colors + aqueous. They can also be finished with hot foil stamping and silk screening.

Applications for laminated squeeze tubes include, but are not limited to – cosmetic and pharmaceutical products, body care products, oral care products and food applications.

Plastic Squeeze Tube Caps & Closures

Usually regarded as one of the most important parts of a collapsible squeeze tube, the tube closure protects the packaged content in the tube from moisture, carbon dioxide, oxygen and other contaminants, giving the product a longer useful shelf life. Squeeze tube closures have evolved with technology, and today’s caps are easier to use, convenient and overall consumer friendly. There are a variety of tube caps and closures to choose from, and we encourage you to contact us or call at 877-284-7752 to get more details on the types of closures and squeeze tubes that are best for your needs.
