Cosmetic bottle packaging is mainly plastic and glass two kinds of material


After years of 15 per cent annual growth, China's cosmetics market has begun to take shape. In 2002, the whole market achieved a total sales of 45 billion yuan. It is predicted that the total sales of its market will reach 80 billion yuan in 2010. As the main packaging materials in this market, plastic and glass will also have a greater use of land. Most of the general cosmetics appear to be liquid, emulsion or paste, do not have a bright appearance. It must be exquisite, unique packaging design, to show its own characteristics. As a result, cosmetics generally rely on cosmetic packaging to sell well. Plastic and glass are the main cosmetic packaging container materials used at present, and among them, the amount of plastic is the largest, such as wholesale plastic cosmetic tubes, wholesale plastic cosmetic bottles.


Although the variety of cosmetics, different functions, but in terms of its external form and packaging adaptability, there are mainly the following categories: solid cosmetics, solid granular (powder) cosmetics, liquid and emulsion cosmetics, cream cosmetics, etc.. According to different forms, the form of packaging is different. The current situation, as a result of plastic light and cheap, easy to form scale production, can make various specification size, transparent, opaque, and various kinds of color of the bottle, and printing performance is very good, can use the methods such as thermal transfer, inkjet, printing the manual, logo, barcode printing directly on the surface of the container. Therefore, plastic products have occupied more than 80% of the packaging market cosmetics, become the most important packaging container cosmetics. Previously, cosmetics are generally packaged in glass bottles, but, as a result of the variety of the glass container is single, even if there is a better design idea, due to the limitations of technology and materials, it is often not possible to achieve.

And the plastic material has the advantage in this respect, not only the source is rich, and the forming performance is good, can be made into a variety of structure and modeling of bottles, cans, boxes and other plastic containers, and can carry out a variety of decoration and decoration design. In addition, the rapid development of PET resin in cosmetic containers in recent years has led to a major change in the replacement of glass bottles with plastic. But we should also see, although the glass bottle in the cosmetic packaging container accounted for the proportion of no more than 8%, however, it still has irreplaceable advantages in this packaging field, in the short term is still the first choice of high-grade cosmetics material. Thorough and pure, noble and elegant, is the charm of glass bottles. Compared with the plastic Cosmetic bottle, the heavy feeling of the heavy double trust; The unique visual effect of frosted glass bottles is far more than that of plastic bottles. Many perfume manufacturers like to use this container to pack their products, for example, Italy's Bvlgari women's perfume, the packaging design of the delicate excellence of the tradition, streamlined glass bottles with matte glass, soft emerald-green body accentuate its simple lines, convey a fresh, elegant and friendly quality. In addition, the high barrier to gas also makes glass bottles the first choice for perfume and other volatile, easily lost fragrance products wholesale cosmetic tube packaging.


Cosmetics, especially whitening and nutritional series, contain a lot of nutrients just like food, but they are easily oxidized. This puts forward a very high requirement for the sealing of the packaging. The strong barrier of the glass bottle is undoubtedly more competent than the plastic bottle in protecting the contents. With the rapid development of modern industry and the continuous enhancement of public environmental protection opinions, paper packaging is more and more widely used in commodities and the demand is increasing. Vacuum aluminized paper is one of them. The aluminized paper is mainly composed of base paper, aluminum layer and coating. Because of good gloss and smoothness, good flexibility, high fastness of aluminum spray layer, beautiful and environmental protection. The main consumer group of cosmetics is women, and the exquisite packaging of cosmetics has a great influence on the status of cosmetics in women's eyes and their preference for specific brands. Transparent and colorful ink printed on vacuum aluminized paper, can reveal the noble and rich metallic luster, at the same time, giving people a psychological hint: after using this kind of cosmetics, they can also shine, and easy to print. Vacuum aluminized paper is easy to be processed by laser holography and has a good anti-counterfeiting effect. According to the needs of different cosmetics in the outer packaging printed on the flash of laser LOCO or specific beautiful patterns, both beautiful and fresh and easy to identify, but also make fake and shoddy products. But at present the whole cosmetics market, packaging materials are still dominated by plastic and glass.

Wholesale tube printing is applied to metal cosmetic tubes, laminated cosmetic tubes, and covered cosmetic tubes. Wholesale Plastic Cosmetic Tube, etc. Metal Cosmetic Tube printing is completed by using the principle of indirect rubber roller roll transfer to print text and text. At present, the toothpaste used in China is made by assembly line, and the raw materials of tin and lead are imported into eight sections, and then the packaging is finished by washing the Cosmetic tube, the thread of the car, making the background color, printing the pictures and pictures, drying, locking the cover and sealing the filling material. The plates used for printing by Cosmetic Tube are usually copperplates because copperplates have a higher resistance to printing and are made in the same way as a common copper-zinc plate. The machine is composed of a plate drum, a rubber drum, an imprint drum covering the Cosmetic tube, a conveying mechanism, an ink bucket, etc.



Since the substrate is non-ferrous metal, the Cosmetic Tube must be covered with a white ink or other ink with a background color before the image is printed) before the image can be formally printed and the ink needs to dry quickly after the background color is printed. In order to print after a few colors, so printing color by infrared drying device to dry and print text and text. The overprinting of the text and text is not done on the traditional paper of the imprint, but on the three plates of the drum, simultaneously overprinting on the rubber tube (because the imprinting is on the ground so the overprinting does not overlap), and then the three-color ink is transferred to the Cosmetic Tube on the imprint roller once. The imprint roller on the imprint cylinder plate is covered with a cosmetic tube, but it will not rotate itself. Only after contact with the rubber roller, can it rotate with the same line speed as the rubber cylinder. The diameter of the imprint cylinder plate is the same as the diameter of the rubber cylinder, but the operation is different. Complete the printing of a piece of Cosmetic Tube. After the rotation of the Cosmetic Tube, leaving the rubber drum, the overprinting of the Cosmetic Tube was completed and then infra-red light was applied to dry the mark quickly and to increase the brightness of the mark.




Toothpaste tube, Cosmetic tube shoe polish and medical ointment Cosmetic tube are printed in this way. Metal Cosmetic Tube printing ink shall meet the above conditions in addition to being heat and light resistant, as the tube is subject to compression and torsion, and water and moisture are frequently encountered when used. The ink must also be able to resist the corrosion of the tube, which is covered by different substances. Laminated Cosmetic Tube is the respective advantage of the two kinds of substances. The laminated Cosmetic Tube has the advantages of both of them. If the laminated Cosmetic Tube is made of aluminum foil and plastic film, it has the advantages of moisture resistance and weather resistance. In this way, plastic printing can be carried out by means of photogravure printing. After lamination and molding, it will become laminated Cosmetic Tube. Plastic Cosmetic Tube printing requires surface treatment before printing due to poor adhesion of the plastic ink. Now the foreign use of hot press transfer printing method, the text and text printed on the transfer paper (that is, coated with the coating of kraft paper), color order is the opposite color order of color printing, and then on the printing surface coated with a layer of heat treatment can produce adhesion material, and then print the text and text of the transfer paper and surface contact, transfer under hot pressure.
