Mono tubes

Multitubes B.V produces plastic tubes in both mono layer as well as 5 layer tubes with an EVOH barrier.

The mono tube is produced from 1 layer of plastic, which can consist of LDPE (low density polyethylene), LLDPE (linear low density polyethylene) and HDPE (high density polyethylene).

We can also produce mono tubes from a mixture of the aforementioned materials, perhaps to influence the tube’s flexibility, or to facilitate the sealing properties.

Mono tubes are 100% recyclable.

Mono tubes can also be produced from 100% recycled material.

Coex tubes

Multitubes B.V produces plastic tubes in both mono layer as well as 5 layer tubes with an EVOH barrier.

What is an EVOH Barrier?
EVOH, (Ethylene vinyl alcohol), is a synthetic polymer which is a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl alcohol.

What is EVOH used for?

EVOH has excellent barrier properties against, for example, oxygen, gases, solvents and oils. This is why it’s often used in packaging for, for example: food products, (natural) cosmetics, industrial products and pharmaceutical products, in order to extend their storage life, to combat any possible odours and to stop the packaging from deforming.

How does EVOH work in an extruded tube?

EVOH’s oxygen permeability is +- 1.500 times lower than HDPE’s (high density poly ethylene) and +- 4.000 times lower than LDPE’s (low density poly ethylene).

Multitubes B.V. processes EVOH in multi-layer films, as EVOH doesn’t withstand moisture well (see illustration).

Layer 1. LDPE (low density poly ethylene )
Layer 2. Bonding agent = Double-sided adhesive
Layer 3. EVOH barrier
Layer 4. Bonding agent = Double-sided adhesive
Layer 5. LDPE (low density poly ethylene)

Tubes with an EVOH barrier are just as easy to recycle as mono layer tubes. So environmentally friendly, cost effective and socially responsible!

Caps

The cap is an important part of the tube, both where presentation as well as functionality are concerned.

This is why we offer an enormously extensive assortment for both screw caps as well as flip top caps. Custom made caps certainly don’t present us with any problems either!

We process both screw on flip top caps as well as snap on flip top caps. We offer tamper evident solutions with the use of seals on the screw thread and caps with built in tamper evident solutions.

 Please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements in more detail.
