The Ideal Storage Solution

Our plastic tube containers are efficient and convenient storage units for all kinds of products.

Using a tube container with a cap for packaging not only looks neat and saves space (as they can be stacked on top of each other), but when opting for our clear tubes, they are also time-saving because they so perfectly display the product within.

Say goodbye to environmentally damaging polystyrene when looking for product storage and say hello to a strong, attractive, long-lasting tubular product container instead.

Transparent & Colour Plastic Packaging Tubes

As the largest UK manufacturer of extruded clear plastic tubes for packaging, we can offer you a quick turnaround at the most competitive price for whichever product you need.

We have a number of variables for you to choose from when selecting the material, size, colour, length, caps, and thickness of your packaging tubes.

High Quality Plastic Materials

Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol (PETG) – Known for its common use in the manufacturing of clear water bottles and other clear plastic products, PETG is a Glycol Modified version of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET). It has a glossy and smooth surface finish, a low level of warping, and is stronger than polypropylene.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) – This is the third-most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer in the world. It became popular for products like face shields owing to its easy handling. It also resists deformation from high impact well compared with other plastics such as polystyrene.

Acetate – Also known as cellulose acetate, this is a hypoallergenic plant-based plastic. It is known for being strong, flexible, lightweight, and recyclable – which makes it better than certain other plastics such as polypropylene and polystyrene.

Whatever Size You Need

With either a thick or thin wall, our plastic tube containers are available in any size from 7mm to 70mm diameter, and a number of different length options.

This means that they are the ideal storage solution for a wide range of products and applications.

Any Colour You Want

Our range of plastic packaging tubes can be manufactured in clear, translucent, opaque, or special finishes, and we have a range of colours to choose from.

Applications for the various transparent or colour options include:

  • Clear Tubes for Sweets
  • Clear Tubes for Gift Packaging

Choose Your Length

You tell us the length you need for your containers and we cut it accordingly in the material and quantity of your choice. For lengths that are very popular, we may already have what you need in stock, but we can promise a quick turnaround time even if we don’t.

Caps & Closures

When it comes to the type of closure you need for your products, our injection moulded caps and plugs are the perfect partner for clear or colour tubular packaging products. They work especially well when wanting to display a specific product.

We can manufacture a plastic cap to screw onto tubes of any diameter, length, shape, or size – and we can do so in a variety of colours. They complete clear tube containers perfectly while showing off a high quality appearance too.

Our screw cap is popular for scientific and medical tube containers.

While various plug and cap styles are available for immediate shipment, we can also manufacture the product cap in custom colours and materials at minimal additional cost.

With our complete cap design and manufacturing service, we are equipped to respond to specialist closure requirements with rapid turnaround of tooling and sampling, regardless of quantity, diameter, stock, or other factors.
