Hygiene is of paramount importance in the fields of medicine and pharmaceutical products and for all other sensitive products. The tube’s unique principle is clearly superior to most other forms of packaging where purity and hygiene are concerned: contaminants, germs or bacteria do not enter the tube when it is opened and used. Easy and trouble-free resealability plays its part, too: tube contents like ointments or medicinal or cosmetic creams do not become contaminated and can therefore be used safely and for a long time.
It is not without good reason that in most countries creams and ointments for medicinal purposes are only available in tubes and dispensers, and not in pots or similar containers. Only materials that meet the strict requirements of the pharmaceutical authorities in Europe and the USA are used in the production of tubes for medicinal products. And only food-grade materials that conform to the EU and US regulations currently in force are used in the food sector.
Depending on the specific client requirements, etma’s tube producers can achieve defined degrees of cleanliness for the tubes produced and their surroundings for all steps in the process chain. Tube production in clean rooms is part of everyday practice. Tubes thus guarantee clients and consumers the highest possible degree of cleanliness from start to finish.
