TAMPER EVIDENT TUBES, SAMPLE SIZES
M&H Plastics, part
of the RPC Group of
companies, added an
orientated tear-off strip
cap to its tube range
for brands that require
tamper evidence and
The tear strip design
provides a clean look
and, once removed, a practical lip to open the cap.
According to the company, brands can benefit from full sleeve
printing or labelling, and can opt for a ‘sight glass’ window so
consumers can see when the product is nearly empty. The new
tubes are available in 35/45/50mm diameters, with capacity from
40 mL to 250 mL.
In addition, M&H Plastics added a 15 mL Vogue bottle to
its catalog. This enables greater opportunity for trialing and
promoting new products.

decorated or labelled to match existing portfolios. A PET range is
also available. www.mhplastics.com
