A leader in the manufacture of plastic bottles and jars for the personal care, pharmaceutical and nutritional supplement industries, Alpha Packaging introduces its new HDPE Cylinder line of containers, designed for the personal care and beauty market. Made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), each container in the line is produced with an impact finish to create the best possible look for personal care consumers. The HDPE Cylinder bottles are available in three sizes: 8 oz., 12 oz. and 16 oz.
The first of three new narrow- neck stock packaging lines being introduced by Alpha Packaging, HDPE Cylinders are available in both 24-410 and 24-415 necks, in white and natural colors, or in custom colors when purchased at a 50,000-piece minimum. Alpha can also complete custom orders for bottles incorporating between 25% and 100% post-consumer HDPE. The post-consumer resin is FDA approved for food contact. Minimum orders for recycled HDPE bottles are 50,000 pieces. Beauty brands have the option of using the high-quality decorating provided by Alpha’s Technigraph division. Deco tooling will be available to customers at no charge, and they may select a combination of direct screen printing, hot stamping, pressure-sensitive labeling or spray coating/frosting to set their brands apart. Customers will still be responsible for the cost for screens and custom artwork.
Alpha has finished the conversion of its three 8-oz. Honey Bear packages from PETG to PET, and samples of the new Honey Bear bottles are now available. The 8-oz. Honey Bears come in three styles: the Belly Bear (which has no label panel area), a one-panel design and a two-panel option. These bottles can be decorated in-line.
