Uflex has developed flexi-tubes that roll up all the advantages of multi-layered flexible laminates. The unique ABC approach combines aesthetics; barrier properties & counterfeit-proof offers flexibility and endless possibilities to brands.
Uflex Flexi-Tubes have been offering aesthetical benefits to brands like 360 degree printing; utilization of the entire tube torso for branding from shoulder to crimp; high definition graphics; imparting metallic effects using advanced registered printing; registered lamination; superior surface finish using matte & gloss effects and electron beam (EBM) coating for ultra-high gloss among several others.
What further differentiates Uflex’s Flexi-Tubes is its ability to offer customised barrier properties as required by the product being packed. Most of the laminated tubes world-over with a one size fits all approach have a typical 3 tier-structure comprising Polyethylene / Aluminium Foil / Polyethylene which does not give much customization in terms of barrier properties. Uflex can offer a combination of Polyester; Metallized Polyester; Holographic Metallized Polyester; Aluminium Foil; EVOH/Nylon; SiOx2 coated; AlOx coated transparent barrier substrates jointly or severally depending upon the requirement of the product being packed. Deriving prowess from its holography business Uflex can also offer anti-counterfeiting features like multiple lens; single lens; security strips among other customised brand protection features.
Explaining more about OPTIKA Transparent Flexi-Tubes, Mr. Ish Dhawan, Head, Product Development at the Tubes vertical of Uflex says, “We have adopted a special process that imparts depth to the printing and imagery prominently highlighting the main elements of the brand artwork. The inside and outside seamless printing with metallic effects coupled up with the refractive properties of the transparent Flexi-Tube creates a visual appeal at the point-of-sale (POS). For OPTIKA we use ultra-clear polyethylene as the innermost substrate that further imparts mesmerizing aesthetics to the Flexi-Tube. The optical illusion created by printing inside the tube gives distinct visual effects as the gel/liquid gets consumed over a period of time. Our design & manufacturing teams work in close collaboration with merchandizers of several top-notch beauty and cosmetic brands to simulate the optical/ visual effects at the POS.”
