Remedent's new package turns heads (sidebar)

The packaging process
Print Reprint

During assembly a glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate tube is fitted over the polystyrene base. The hollow cavity of the package base houses a folded sheet of product information held in place by a flat molded PS retainer that friction fits into the cavity. Next a printed back panel insert is installed in the tube followed by the brush and its storage clip.

Once the product is in place a PS cap is applied followed by four labels. Lofton Label (Inver Grove MN) prints the pressure-sensitive 31/2-mil paper labels flexographically in four colors plus a UV varnish. The upper label seals the package top to the tube and provides tamper evidence. The consumer removes this label to access the brush.

Finally a 9-mil die-cut PETG hang tab from MBK Corp. (Chatsworth CA) is applied to the top of the package. A flat area on the cap ensures good adhesion for the p-s tab. All assembly is accomplished manually at Remedent’s packaging plant.
