Injection Molded Tubes with In Mold Label

The tube is manufactured by an injection molding process and decorated by in-mold labelling. The process calls for a printed polypropylene label to be inserted into the mold and 'shot' with a proprietary polypropylene resin. Within seconds the tube is fully formed and decorated, in one piece including the neck, shoulder and body. The label is literally imbedded in the walls of the tube, forming an integral part of the tube wall. With a polypropylene cap applied as an immediate secondary step, the tube is fully manufactured and ready for filling in seconds and in a couple of steps.
