Five Layer Tubes offer superb barrier properties

RPC M&H Plastics is excited to offer five layer co-extruded tubes that provide the best barrier properties available, preventing penetration and migration in and out of the tube.

Furthermore, our comprehensive range of decoration types allows you to create customised tubes that can be tailored to your target market.

Metallic-effect tubes

RPC M&H Plastics has created a stunningly beautiful effect giving the luxury appearance of a coloured aluminium foil tube – at a cost-effective price. If you are looking for distinctive on-trend packaging for your tubes, ask us for samples today.

Photo-realistic print

RPC M&H Plastics has state-of-the-art machinery to create exactly the tubes you require. We can manufacture and decorate up to a million tubes a week whilst continuing to achieve ever more demanding quality standards.

Flexibility is also an important factor and production resources which have been fine-tuned for mass production and are also adaptable to short runs. We pride ourselves on our flexibility and customer service to ensure we supply the products you need on time and on budget.

We offer tubes in any colour, white or transparent plus an extensive range of special effects. The company also offers a complete decoration service that includes flexographic and silkscreen printing, labelling and hot foil blocking enabling product differentiation with a virtually unlimited combination of effects. Standard screw caps and snap-on dispensing closures are available to suit all sizes of tubes.

We are constantly developing our tube product portfolio by creating new designs and new models, to improve customer choice.
