The outstanding feature of the aluminium tube is its unique barrier properties. Aluminium is impermeable to light and air, and resistant to heat and corrosion. This prevents ingress of bacteria, germs and other potentially harmful substances.
At the same time, highly volatile constituents of the contents cannot escape. This means valuable sensitive ingredients remain effective for a long time. In the food sector one can forego the use of preservatives. Aluminium tubes are resistant to heat and thus offer the optimal prerequisites for sterile handling along the whole process chain.
This makes aluminium tubes ideal for use in the pharmaceutical industry, the cosmetics and food sectors, and for any application where product safety and high standards of quality and hygiene are particularly important.
Thanks to the use of the latest technologies, aluminium tubes can now be printed in outstanding quality with a decorative finish. Designers and marketing specialists appreciate these new opportunities for brand presentation, and consumers develop brand loyalty at the point of sale.
