VIVA Healthcare Packaging provides the most eco-friendly tubes

Enhanced Looks

Viva has established itself as a major player in the tube market with Injection-molded Tube that improves the product's appearance and shelf impact with extraordinary graphic capability over the entire tube surface.

Surface-print structure can enhance artwork design flexibilities. Alternatively, overlaminate can enhance artwork protection and scuff resistance which is unmatched by other types of tubes. Photo-quality definition printing quality enables functional purpose, e.g. QR link, specialized logos, invisible eyemarks.


Viva tube is made of 100% polypropylene, including tube body, in-mold label and closure, lending itself to Class 5 recycling programs where other industry tubes cannot.

All components produced in-house under one roof, eliminating the need to transport components between locations. A robust and efficient Viva commissioned a Life Cycle Assessment by an independent consultant to measure the environmental impact of Viva tube compared to other industry tubes. The findings:

1. Viva tube saves 25% to 35% emissions for every tube produced compared to other industry tubes.
2. Recycling 1 million Viva tubes conserves the equivalent emissions from an average automobile for 10 years.


Production Efficiency

Injection-molded Tube 2-step processes:

1. In-mold label production
2. Tube injection-molding with fully integrated downstream assembly and packing

Viva's efficient and fully automated process enables shorter lead time, lesser waste and more consistent quality compared to other industry tubes, while flexible for both short and long runs.
