Plastic tubes have always been a great package design. But thanks to our innovative head styles and specialized caps, the traditional plastic tube is now customized to your specific needs and requirements.
In addition to high-quality material options, Amber has a complete line of head styles and caps designed to meet your product’s demands. Amber also offers state-of-the-art decoration options, including metallic and neon inks, photographic printing, and endless varnish options that will bring your brand to life.
The right material for your plastic tube depends on the compatibility of your product’s formulation. We recommend stability testing to ensure your product is compatible with the tube material.
All of our plastic tubes are multilayered. We provide 3- or 5-layer tubes depending on your product needs. The density of each layer determines the tube’s flexibility and barrier properties.
