"On the part of cosmetics packaging recyclers, we can only praise your initiative for plastics technologists it is absolutely understandable that there is a need to separate both material streams, i.e., polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) in the recycling process, because both admixtures of PP in PE (above 3% by weight) and vice versa (PE in PP) have a very negative impact on the performance of the base material, reducing mechanical strength or resistance to external factors. The molecular similarity of both materials and their very similar specific gravity (0.85-0.92 g/cm3 for PP; 0.89 - 0.93 g/cm3 for LDPE and 0.94-0.98 g/cm3 for HDPE), which prevents sedimentation in aqueous solution, makes their separation in the recycling process very difficult. For this purpose, either the near infrared (NIR) sample spectrum analysis method or the eddy current method (a variant of aqueous sedimentation) is used. Both, however, have an identification error of more than 3%, resulting in the deterioration of the recyclates described above. Having mono-material solutions at their disposal, recyclers are able to offer manufacturers re-granulates with much better parameters, highly similar to those of the original materials (virgin) without unnecessary expenditures on separating the PE and PP streams and the possible risk of mixing them in the recycling process".

The new mono-material PE tubes are available in a range of lengths and diameters and with a choice of screw and flip-top caps made of HDPE (high-density Polyethylene).
"Recognizing that environmental impact should be a fundamental factor in all companies’ decision-making process, we at LAGEEN TUBES are constantly striving to improve our environmental performance. Our new line of Mono-Material PE tubes provides brands with the best of two worlds – improved recyclability to help them meet their sustainability commitments and regulatory requirements, as well as full design flexibility to support their brand and positioning goals".
"Handling of current tube not require from our customers new filling equipment or operational adjustments. Made of food grade PE according to the strict regulation of US and European authorities, PE Mono-Material tubes suitable for cosmetics, pharmaceutical and food products".
