LageenTubes' latest cosmetics innovation – MetallicPlast™ introducing the new stunning plastic tube with metallic printing. Due to the new cutting edge technology and 50 years expertise in plastic tube manufacturing, LageenTubes is presenting the best and extremely realistic metallic appearance of metal effects ever achieved in direct printing on a plastic tube.

The new MetallicPlast tube, mainly targeted for the premium cosmetic market, enables our brand customers to get their dream luxurious cosmetic package that will standout at the point of sale, signaling premium and unique positioning.

The decoration possibility for the new MetallicPlast tube is almost unlimited and can be changed at any time. It can be over-varnished or printed on the varnish. The hot stamp can can be implemented first allowing printing on top of it or it can be last in accordance with the graphic. The flexographic and the silk screen can also be changed in sequence. CMYK or pantone shades can be used, as well as selective varnish to achieve distinguishing effects of matt and gloss on the same tube.

The customer can choose the level of gloss, mirror effect, metallic decoration or satin metallic gloss, brushed aluminum effect or hot-stamped effect. Metallic effects can also be combined with photo-realistic, graduated, matt and glos, and other effects for an even greater standout look.

LageenTubes' new MetallicPlast tubes are now available with diameters between 19 and 50mm and can be fitted with screw caps or flip tops.
