Features: It has excellent gas barrier properties, can effectively prevent the infiltration of oxygen and odor gas, and prevent the scent of the contents and the leakage of active ingredients.


tube + cover / tube is often made of PE plastic. Divided into single-layer tubes (multiple use, lower cost) and double-layer tubes (good sealing performance) according to product thickness. According to the shape of the product, it is divided into round tubes (multiple use, lower cost), and flat tubes are also called special-shaped tubes (to be secondary joints, the cost is higher). The outer cover of the tube has a screw cap (single layer and double layer, the double cover is mostly electroplated cover to increase the product grade, looks more beautiful, the professional line uses screw cap) and the cover.
