TekniPlex Consumer Products Launches New PCR Dip Tube in Europe for Industrial Aerosols & Household Cleaning Products Applications

TekniPlex Consumer Products has introduced a new PCR dip tube in European markets that can be made of up to 100% post-consumer recycled content depending on customer requirements. Ideal for use in industrial aerosol and household cleaning product applications, the ProTecFlow® dip tube offers a reduced environmental impact compared to dispensing tubing products made from virgin materials, while maintaining the same high-quality performance characteristics.

“Consumers are increasingly calling on brand owners to provide more eco-friendly products and packaging, “said Dirk De Mulder, sales director for the liners business in Europe and Asia. “Producing dip tubing with virgin materials is an energy-intensive process. A dip tube made of PCR reduces both natural resources usage and overall environmental impact. ProTecFlow is an example of our commitment to supporting a circular economy model.”

TekniPlex produces the new dip tube at its facilities in Belgium and Italy. The company sources the high-quality PCR resin in Europe from a local supplier, and plans to secure a local supplier in the U.S. to guarantee global availability of the PCR ProTecFlow® dip tube.

“We are working with local suppliers to reduce our environmental impact and shorten lead times for customers,” said De Mulder. “In addition, our local supplier provides consistent, high-quality resin from a large volume of available materials, allowing us to deliver on our promise of supply consistency and security.”
