Selection principles and common materials for cosmetic tube materials

2021-12-01

Cosmetic tube materials refer to the materials used to make various cosmetic tube containers and meet the requirements of product cosmetic tubes, and are the material basis of commercial cosmetic tubes. It is one of the important conditions for cosmetic tube manufacturers to understand and master the types, properties and uses of cosmetic tube materials, and to select cosmetic tube materials reasonably.


Selection principle of cosmetic tube material

For cosmetic tube manufacturers, the choice of materials is very important in the design of cosmetic tubes. If the materials are not selected properly, it will bring unnecessary losses to the enterprise. The choice of cosmetic tube materials should be determined according to the characteristics of the product itself, and the basic principles of science, economy and environmental protection.

1. Based on product demand

The choice of materials is not arbitrary. The cosmetic tube manufacturer should first combine the characteristics of the product, such as the form of the product (solid, liquid, etc.), whether it is corrosive and volatile, and whether it needs to be stored in the dark. Manufacturers should consider the grade of the product. Cosmetic tube materials for high-end products or precision instruments should be highly aesthetic and excellent in performance. Cosmetic tube materials for mid-range products should be both beautiful and practical, while low-end cosmetic tube materials should be practical. Mainly.


2. Can effectively protect goods

The cosmetic tube material should effectively protect the product, so it should have a certain degree of strength, toughness and elasticity to adapt to the influence of external factors such as pressure, impact, and vibration.

Three, economic and environmental protection

Cosmetic tube materials, cosmetic tube packaging manufacturers should try their best to choose materials that are widely sourced, convenient to obtain, low-cost, recyclable, degradable, and non-polluting to avoid causing public hazards.

Common cosmetic tube materials and their performance characteristics

There are many types of cosmetic tube materials. The most commonly used materials are paper, plastic, metal, glass, ceramics, natural materials, fiber products, composite materials, and new environmentally friendly materials that are easily degradable.


1. Paper cosmetic tube material

In the entire cosmetic tube design and development process, as a universal cosmetic tube material, paper cosmetic tube material is widely used in production and life practices, from general cosmetic tube paper to composite cosmetic tube paper, All show the charm of paper cosmetic tube materials.

The paper is easy to process, low in cost, suitable for cosmetic tube packaging manufacturers to mechanize the production of cosmetic tubes in large quantities, and has good formability and foldability, suitable for exquisite printing, and has the advantages of recyclability, economy and environmental protection.


1) Kraft paper cosmetic tube

Kraft paper is tough and inexpensive, with good folding and water resistance. It is usually yellow-brown, and after bleaching, it is light brown, off-white or white.

2) Corrugated paper

Corrugated paper gets its name because it is processed into a corrugated shape. Corrugated cardboard is made by bonding face paper, lining paper, core paper and corrugated paper. It has the advantages of lightness and firmness, strong load and pressure resistance, shock and moisture resistance, and low cost.


2. Material of plastic cosmetic tube

Plastic is a kind of synthetic resin as the basic component, adding plasticizers, stabilizers, fillers, lubricants, pigments and other additives, synthetic polymer materials. For plastic cosmetic tube manufacturers, plastic has good water resistance, moisture resistance, oil resistance, insulation, and is light in weight, colorable, easy to produce, can be molded into various shapes and adapted to printing, and its raw materials are abundant and low in cost. , Excellent performance, has become the fastest growing cosmetic tube material in the world in the past 40 years, and is one of the most important cosmetic tube materials in modern sales and wholesale cosmetic tubes.

Plastics used for cosmetic tube materials can be divided into two categories: general-purpose plastics and foamed plastics.

(1) General plastic cosmetic tube

Common plastic components of common cosmetic tubes mainly include polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and polystyrene (PS). Among them, polyethylene is divided into high-density polyethylene (HDPE or PE-HD) and low-density polyethylene (LDPE or PE-LD).

(2) Foam

Foam plastic refers to plastic products with a large number of microporous structures inside. It is also called porous plastic. It has excellent impact and vibration resistance, low thermal conductivity, low water absorption, low moisture absorption, and stable chemical properties. Plastic cosmetics tube manufacturers often use cushioning cosmetic tube materials for their products.

3. Metal cosmetic tube material

Metal is one of the traditional cosmetic tube materials. It is widely used in industrial product cosmetic tubes, transportation cosmetic tubes and sales cosmetic tubes. It occupies an important position in cosmetic tube materials. The metal cosmetic tube material has the following performance characteristics:

1) With excellent mechanical properties and high strength, it can be made into a cosmetic tube container with thin walls, high compressive strength and not easy to break.

2) Excellent processing performance, mature processing technology, continuous and automatic production, good ductility and strength, and can be rolled into plates and foils of various thicknesses.

3) It has excellent comprehensive protection properties, such as strong gas barrier properties, moisture resistance, shading properties and fragrance retention.

4)It has a special metallic luster and is easy to print and decorate. For example, metal foil and metal-plated film are ideal trademark materials.

Metal cosmetic tube materials are mainly divided into two categories: steel and aluminum, and each category includes several varieties, and each has its own scope of application.

Aluminum cosmetic tube

Wholesale cosmetic tube, aluminum is light in weight, has good ductility and corrosion resistance, is not easy to rust, has beautiful and long-lasting brightness, and is easy to print, process and recycle. The main disadvantage of aluminum is that it is easily corroded in acid, alkali, and salt media.


4. Glass and ceramic cosmetic bottle materials

(1) Glass cosmetic bottle

The basic raw materials of glass are quartz sand, caustic soda and limestone. It has a high degree of transparency, impermeability and corrosion resistance, non-toxic, tasteless, stable chemical properties, and low production costs. Cosmetic bottle manufacturers can make transparent and translucent containers of various shapes and colors. In addition, coloring agents are added to ordinary glass to form colored glass. The colored glass can absorb the visible light of the sun and weaken the intensity of the sun's light, providing protection for commodities that need to be kept away from light.


5. Natural cosmetic tube material

Bamboo cosmetic tube & bamboo cosmetic bottle

Commonly used in cosmetic tube materials are moso bamboo, water bamboo, bitter bamboo, Ci bamboo, hemp bamboo and so on. Bamboo has hard texture, impact resistance, corrosion resistance, friction resistance, low density, good physical and mechanical properties, easy planting, fast production speed, high yield, and environmental protection.


6. Composite cosmetic tube material

Composite material is a cosmetic tube packaging manufacturer through a certain method and technical means, two or more materials are processed and compounded through a certain method, so that it has the characteristics of multiple materials to make up for the shortcomings of a single material , To form a more perfect cosmetic tube material with comprehensive properties. Compared with traditional materials, composite materials have the advantages of saving resources, easy recycling, reducing production costs, and reducing the weight of cosmetic tubes. Therefore, they are increasingly valued and advocated by cosmetic tube packaging manufacturers.



7. easily degradable new environmentally-friendly cosmetic tube material

New environmentally friendly materials are composite materials developed to alleviate white pollution and are generally mixed with bagasse or other plants. It is biodegradable and not easy to cause pollution. It is the main development direction of cosmetic tube materials in the future.
