Signal

Completely recyclable in the HDPE bottle stream

The company EPL produces the laminate tube for Unilever’s Signal INTERGRAL8. The focus for this product was the change from an ABL material to a material, which is recyclable on an HDPE basis in Code 2. With the Signal INTEGRAL8, Unilever has succeeded in bringing a tube to the point of sale that is completely recyclable in the HDPE bottle stream. The PLATINA PRO material is a development by EPL based on HDPE with a thickness of 220µ. It offers all the necessary barrier properties for the entire duration of use and meets the requirements of the filling product. Only six colours and a gloss varnish were used for the letterpress printing. Further finishes such as embossing foil were consistently avoided on this tube in the interests of sustainability. Despite this environment-related limitation, the company has again convincingly succeeded in keeping the product’s recognition effect and yet presenting a fresh transparent design.
