3 Different Categories of Squeeze Tubes

Squeeze tubes provide an affordable and convenient way to protect, store, dispense, and market your product. The basics of squeeze tubes can be broken into 3 categories, as well as numerous materials and finishing options which are available to squeeze tube purchasers. A variety of hand creams, shampoos, oral care products, adhesives, cosmetic products and many more are perfect for packaging in squeeze tubes.
Squeeze tubes for packaging can be categorized into 3 basic types:

  • Extruded Plastic Squeeze Tubes
  • Laminated Squeeze Tubes (ABL & PBL)
  • Collapsible Aluminum Squeeze Tubes

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

Squeeze Tube Category 1 – 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.

Extruded plastic squeeze tubes are available in several different materials:

  • LLDPE
  • LDPE
  • MDPE
  • HDPE
  • Multi-Layer EVOH / CO-Ex (Co-Extruded)
  • Co-Extruded Soft Touch LDPE

Extruded plastic squeeze tubes can be finished and decorated in numerous ways:

Squeeze Tube Category 2 – Laminated Squeeze Tubes

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.

Squeeze Tube Category 3 – Collapsible Aluminum Squeeze Tubes

Aluminum squeeze tubes are formed by an impact hammer extrusion process using 99.9% pure aluminum. Adhesives, pharmaceuticals, hair products, cosmetics, paints, metal polish, and others are perfect for use in aluminum squeeze tubes.

Here are some of our aluminum squeeze tube options:

  • Base coat plus 4 color printing
  • Open nozzle, closed nozzle (piercing) and long nozzle (applicator)
  • Inside lacquering to prevent your product from reacting with the aluminum
  • Shoulder coated tubes
  • Latex lined at the sealing end of the squeeze tubes to avoid leakage of material
  • Custom caps of any shape, size and color can be manufactured
  • Squeeze tubes of 10mm and 13.5mm diameter for cyanoacrylate adhesives with a storage capacity of 0.5 gms to 20 gms.
