Huhtamaki once again has relied on our expertise and machines to test and refine its latest mono-material tube laminate innovation, this time without an EVOH barrier. The result is a tube of outstanding quality with an ultra-thin barrier layer of less than 1µm. blueloop tube one.
The Pearl Tube is not only aesthetically pleasing, it also sets new technological standards. Huhtamaki's innovative blueloop tube one laminate, printed by Elpes (www.elpes.com), was put through its paces on our FlexSeamer side-seamer machine in our KREALab. blueloop tube one offers improved stiffness and barrier properties, high opacity and excellent printability. The challenge was to avoid damaging the ultra-thin barrier layer during the seaming process. However, the tests and subsequent barrier measurements showed that a perfect barrier function could also be achieved in the area of the side-seam. As a result, the FlexSeamer, as well as all other PackSys Global side-seaming machines, are ideally suited to process the blueloop tube one laminate. Our FlexSeamer was used to achieve a perfect barrier seam.
The blueloop tube one laminate is available in 220μ and 300μ and in white or silver. Thanks to its RecyClass certification, blueloop tube one helps reduce the environmental footprint and sets an example for environmentally conscious packaging solutions.
Very high barrier solution
Our collaboration with Huhtamaki and Elpes has not only resulted in a superior tube but has also pushed the boundaries of tube manufacturing.
