Tube of the Year Award 2019 for PackSys Global

22 Apr 2020

NEOSeam™ wins Tube Council’s 2019 Gold Award for “Best Innovative Component or Process Category″

PackSys Global AG is pleased to announce that it has won the GOLD Award in the category "Best Innovative Component or Process " with our NEOSeam™ technology. The official presentation of the award was planned for May 5th 2020, at the Membership Conference in New York City. However, due to the coronavirus outbreak, the date has been postponed.

The Tube of the Year Awards are presented annually by the Tube Council in the USA, an industry group involving flexible tube manufacturers, tube machinery suppliers, material providers and other parties interested in the development of the tube as the preferred form of packaging for oral care, personal care, food and pharmaceutical applications. In addition, regular meetings organized by the Tube Council offer the opportunity to exchange ideas with other experts in the tube industry.

Tube manufacturers can have their tubes evaluated in the categories personal and oral care, pharmaceuticals, industry, food and sustainability. For associate members who do not produce tubes, such as PackSys Global, an award is given in the category “most innovative tube, manufacturing process or component”. Each entry is carefully judged by a jury of representatives from major consumer goods companies and industry experts.

NEOSeam™ introduces a completely new technology for side-seams in cosmetic laminate tubes. The tube manufacturers' “side trim” material, which is normally cut off from the printed material and thrown away, can now be partially reused. The side trim is used by NEOSeam™ to reinforce the side-seam of the tube. Thanks to this technique, the seam does not show any visible overlaps or “white lines” and allows a complete 360° decoration. The NEOSeam™ tubes are also extremely resistant to damage from being dropped.

NEOSeam™ was conceived with sustainability in mind. Larger volume packs for personal care applications, for example shampoos, body washes and hair conditioners, are often supplied in plastic bottles. Extruded plastic bottles have the advantage that they have the same colour around the entire package. With NEOSeam™ brand owners now have a solution which allows tubes to be used on pack sizes up to approximately 500ml. For equivalent packs sizes mono-material tubes can reduce the amount of plastic used in a package by up to 40% compared to a plastic bottle.

We are very pleased to receive this award and would like to thank our innovative employees who made this technology solution possible.
