IML Tube

Diamond-Hologram-Tube.jpgViva is a global IML Tube manufacturer with ISO and BRC certified manufacturing facilities in Canada, Poland, Hong Kong. Viva IML Tubes is a subsidiary of Viva Group which has been a leading plastic packaging supplier established in Hong Kong in 1973.

Viva IML tubes are manufactured by an injection molding process, and decorated by in-mold labeling.  The process calls for a printed in-mold label to be inserted into a mold and 'shot' with a proprietary polypropylene resin. Within seconds, the tube is fully formed and decorated in one piece including the neck, shoulders and body. The label is literally embedded in the walls of the tube, forming an integral part of the tube wall, and protecting the decoration from scuffs during distribution and use. 

With the use of Foil substrate and EVOH substrate to produce the in-mold label, Viva IML Tube can achieve barrier properties matching ABL and PBL.

Enhanced Looks

The absolute full coverage of the beautifully rich graphics gives the viewers a clear sense of the product before they even read a single word on the label.  The printing with 100% coverage allows high definition graphics with no gaps for seams, or base and tip margins.  This unprecedented graphics capability allows shelf-impact that has never before been seen in the tube industry.

Sustainability

The tubes are made of PP, an environmentally superior material using less material than standard tubes, consuming less energy to process at each step of the life cycle and emitting less greenhouse gases throughout each step of the supply chain.

High Efficiency by Fully Integrated Production

Due to the simplicity of our tube manufacturing process, the cost of the package is very competitive compared with other traditional tubes which require much more inefficient processes. Also the cap is injection molded at the same location avoiding sourcing from different suppliers. Faster leadtime also enables less inventory and less obsolete for design changes resulting in additional savings.
