Tekni-Films, a Tekni-Plex business and supplier of thermoformable products for pharmaceutical, medical, diagnostic health, and personal care products, introduces a line of Tekniflex PX monolayer and laminated thermoformable films for cosmetic applications.
Thermoforming is designed to offer shape customization benefits with limited tooling costs and a sampling option for premium brands. These thermoforms are formed into three-dimensional packages, mimicking full-sized, retail versions.
Included in the product line is Tekniflex PX monolayer copolyester. The polyester-based structure is made to carry a “resin code 1” and therefore, provide an alternative for more “challenging to recycle” thermoformable materials.
Additionally, the line features:
Tekniflex PXP—lamination to polyethylene (PE), for improved peel or weld seals,
Tekniflex PXA—lamination to Aclar film for enhanced moisture barrier and chemical resistance,
Tekniflex PXAP—lamination to Aclar film and PE for enhanced moisture barrier, chemical resistance, and sealability,
and Tekniflex PXPO—lamination to EVOH for improved oxygen barrier, sealability ,and product compatibility.
These material structures are designed to meet buyers’ performance objectives, shorten speed-to-market and give a competitive edge when trying to differentiate cosmetics in a crowded category, says the company.
