Collapsible Tubes

Collapsible tubes are used to package a variety of items such as pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

The use of polyolefin-based materials for each part of a tube closure (closure, tube neck and body) can deliver the mechanical properties required for this application.

Our Lupolen and Hostalen resins are used by customers to produce all components of collapsible tubes. These products, which can be processed by extrusion or injection moulding, feature the following properties:

  • Stress-cracking resistance
  • Flexibility and easy welding

In addition, LyondellBasell’s Catalloy process resins can improve the aesthetic appearance of the outside layer of multi-layer tubes.

More information about our polymer products available for collapsible tube applications can be found on our polymers site.
