Eco-Friendly, All-Paper Construction Canister with Food Grade Greaseproof Liner and Custom Label

December 10th, 2012

A five-star luxury resort celebrating its 30-year anniversary needed an eco-friendly, biodegradable, food grade container labeled with their designed artwork, for edible favors to hand out to guests attending its mile-marker celebration.

One of our most eco-friendly packaging options is our paper cap top and bottom. For this all-paper construction, we used our natural kraft container and paper cap ends, with a food grade greaseproof liner inside. The greaseproof liner keeps the oils from the contained granola from seeping through the paper. The customer had the opportunity to put their own artwork on a label that Custom Paper Tubes applied to the outside of the tube, creating their own unique, custom container.


Rugged, Industrial Packaging Keeps Weld Rods Protected in Harsh Environments

December 6th, 2012

Weld rods (welding electrodes), used primarily in the petrochemical and power generation industries, come in a variety of metal alloys and sizes, most often with special flux coatings containing various minerals to impart specific welding characteristics. Weld rods need to be protected under the harsh environments the industries endure, such as high heat, pressure and moisture, because of their somewhat fragile nature.

Custom Paper Tubes manufactures industrial packaging to protect weld rods, not only in shipping and storage, but most importantly out in the field. The paper containers are usually made with poly laminated or Mylar paper without water-based adhesives. This special paper exterior provides a barrier that prevents moisture from getting into the container that can cause porosity in the flux, which can then become brittle and break off. The special deep draw, heavy duty metal ends allow for a high weight tolerance (up to 30Ibs) and are less prone to denting from an impact, reducing potential damage to the wire. The industrial strength walls of the containers are also resistant to permanent denting, protecting the wire inside.

Custom Paper Tubes produces special industrial packaging for primarily TIG and electrode wire. There are nine tube diameter sizes available so electrodes of different sizes and densities fit snugly into each specific diameter container. Full telescoping, ring-and-plug and poly rod packs are the most common types of industrial containers because of their durability. Besides the deep draw metal ends, other heavy duty end closures available are plastic caps and plugs. Custom Paper Tubes also offers one color online printing, directly onto the spiral wrap, to allow for quick and easy private labeling. Read the rest of this entry »
