Weener Plastics launches sustainable PE CosmoTop tube closure

  • Weener Plastics

Weener Plastics (WP) is launching its brand-new range of CosmoTop tube closures, which combine convenience, high quality and sustainability, and have been specially developed for the Personal Care and Cosmetics market. The new range is made of polyethylene (PE) in order to realize a mono-material packaging solution in combination with HDPE tubes, thereby achieving 100% recyclability.

WP’s Innovation & Development team have matched a striking design and robust dispensing closure with elegant matt outer surfaces and a glossy interior. An active-hinge system allows convenient product use, optimal front snap and stable opening. The lightweight closure uses a minimum of material, further improving sustainability performance, without compromising on functionality. In addition, WP also offers a PE composition with ESCR proof.

Holger Pries, Innovation & Development Director says:

“On our journey to a circular plastic economy we are always looking for possibilities to enhance recyclability and minimize material usage, without compromising on quality and performance. A mono-material packaging solution is one of several options we offer to help customers achieve their sustainability goals.”

Several material options for enhanced sustainability

To contribute to a circular plastic economy and a more sustainable future, WP not only offers the CosmoTop tube closures in virgin PE, but also in recycled PE and bio-based PE. Both options are ISCC certified. Tube manufacturers, brands and private labels can choose the best match for their sustainability and brand strategy.

WP offers tube closures in 3 diameters: 35 mm, 40 mm and 50 mm. These standard products are produced in Europe, enabling short lead times for European manufacturers.
