The Whole Package provides clients looking for squeezable tubes with expertise in choosing the right tubes for their needs. We put our extensive knowledge in tube filling and sealing machinery to use in helping manufacturers choose the right tubes for the products they plan to launch.
Types of Tubes
We can help you choose from the different types of tubes such as:
- Plastic Tubes
- Laminate Tubes
- Collapsible Tubes
- Injection Molded Tubes
Science and Technology
In order to obtain a strong integrity tube seal with the desired cosmetic appearance you need to have a complete understanding of the science and technology behind tubes and sealing machinery. The same tube can exhibit very different sealing results based on the type of tube sealing machinery used and the speed of the production line.
There are many different tube sealing technologies available. Each of these is most effective on a particular type of tube. The most common tube sealing technologies used are:
The Whole Package has the expertise and knowledge to match the different types of tubes with the sealing technology you use in your production line. We have been asked to trouble shoot when a brand owner, contract packager, or cosmetic tube manufacturer finds that they are unable to diagnose the cause of their tube seal failures. Often the cause is the mismatch between the type of tube and the tube sealing method used.
When tube buyers fail to take into account the production methods used to fill and seal tubes, the sealing can be faulty. Product manufacturers have a daunting task trying to negotiate the various choices of squeezable tube options, tube filling and sealing processes, and production line configurations. Instead, they can leave the choice of the entire tube filling and tube sealing system to The Whole Package.
The Whole Package is a completely independent, private company with the right to sell many squeeze tube manufacturers' product offerings. We do not have any obligation or contract with any tube manufacturing company. Our recommendations are completely unbiased and based on the requirements of our customers. We take into consideration the needs of our customers and use our over 25 years’ experience in tube products to recommend the most suitable squeeze tubes.
Every year, our engineering department tests thousands of squeezable plastic tubes from various tube manufacturers and brands so we know the latest technology and are always one step ahead in this field. This same department of ours has tube filling equipment using all the major tube sealing technologies. This in-house capability and our decades of experience in tubes enable us to recommend the best sealing tubes for your particular application.
