Flexible Hose Less Material, Low Cost, Better Economy
The Flexible Hose has the characteristics of light weight, easy to carry, strong and durable, recyclable, easy to squeeze, processing performance and good printing adaptability. It is popular with many cosmetics manufacturers, widely used in cleansing products (cleanser, etc.) (All kinds of eye cream, moisturizing cream, nutrition cream, cream and sunscreen, etc.) and beauty salons (shampoo, conditioner, lipstick, etc.) and other cosmetic packaging.
First, the cosmetics packaging commonly used plastic Flexible Hose and its characteristics
At present, cosmetic packaging commonly used plastic Flexible Hoses mainly include aluminum-plastic composite Flexible Hose, plastic composite Flexible Hose and plastic co-extruded Flexible Hose, they can meet the various needs of cosmetic packaging, such as health, barrier and so on.
1. Aluminum-plastic composite Flexible Hose
The aluminum-plastic composite Flexible Hose is a kind of packaging container made of aluminum foil and plastic film by co-extrusion process. The typical structure is PE / PE + EAA / AL / PE + EAA / PE. Aluminum-plastic composite Flexible Hose is mainly used for packaging on the health, high barrier requirements of cosmetics, the barrier is generally aluminum foil, and its barrier depends on the pinhole of aluminum foil. With the continuous improvement of technology, aluminum-plastic composite Flexible Hose aluminum foil barrier layer thickness has been reduced from the traditional 40μm to 12μm, or even 9μm, greatly saving resources.
Aluminum-plastic composite Flexible Hose in the use of the process has the following advantages.
(1), high barrier, aluminum foil with light resistance, oxygen barrier and water resistance and other barrier properties, on the one hand to prevent the invasion of foreign substances within the cosmetics to prevent the deterioration of cosmetics, but also to prevent cosmetics within the moisture or flavor Ingredients spread through the Flexible Hose to the outside world, thus ensuring the quality of cosmetics.
(2) low cost. To achieve the same barrier properties, aluminum-plastic composite Flexible Hose than the plastic composite Flexible Hose and plastic co-extruded Flexible Hose with less material, low cost, better economy.
2. Plastic composite Flexible Hose
All plastic composite Flexible Hose for all plastic components, divided into plastic non-blocking composite Flexible Hose and plastic plastic composite Flexible Hose two. The whole plastic non-barrier composite Flexible Hose is generally used for low-grade fast consumption of cosmetics packaging; plastic plastic composite Flexible Hose as the existence of side seam, usually used in middle and low cosmetic packaging, the barrier layer can contain EVOH, PVDC, oxide coating PET and other multi-layer composite materials. The typical structure of the plastic barrier composite Flexible Hose is PE / PE / EVOH / PE / PE.
The advantages of plastic composite Flexible Hose are as follows.
(1) environmental protection. Compared with the aluminum-plastic composite Flexible Hose, the plastic composite Flexible Hose with economical, easy to use the whole plastic sheet, can reduce the packaging waste on the environment pollution, recycling of plastic composite Flexible Hose can be re-processed after the production Relatively low-end products.
(2) color diversification. According to the characteristics of cosmetics and different consumer demand, plastic composite Flexible Hose can be made into different colors, such as colorless and transparent, color transparent, color opaque, to bring consumers a strong visual enjoyment. Especially the transparent plastic composite Flexible Hose, can clearly see the color of the contents of the state, giving a strong visual impact, greatly promote the desire of consumers to buy.
(3) good resilience: relative to the aluminum-plastic composite Flexible Hose, the plastic composite Flexible Hose has a better resilience, to ensure that after the extrusion of cosmetics, the Flexible Hose can quickly return to the original form, and always maintain a beautiful, The appearance of the rules. This is essential for cosmetic packaging.
3. Plastic coextrusion Flexible Hose
Plastic coextrusion Flexible Hose using coextrusion technology will be different performance, the type of raw materials co-extruded together, a molding. Plastic coextrusion Flexible Hose is divided into single-layer extrusion Flexible Hose and multi-layer co-extrusion Flexible Hose, the former is mainly used for the appearance of high demand, the actual use of low performance requirements of fast cosmetics (such as hand cream, etc.) Packaging, the latter is mainly used for high-end cosmetics packaging.
The main advantages of plastic coextrusion Flexible Hoses are as follows.
(1) because there is no side seal, the appearance of the effect is better than the composite Flexible Hose, which is necessary for high-end cosmetic Flexible Hose packaging.
(2) According to the different extrusion die, can produce a variety of shapes of extrusion Flexible Hoses, such as oval, square, etc., to meet the needs of different consumers.
