Platina is an eco-friendly laminated tube designed in line with “Recycle” – one of EPL’s key sustainability themes.
Platina 250 tubes are produced with less than 5% barrier resin and have received recognition from the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR), USA, as consistently meeting or exceeding the most stringent APR HDPE Critical Guidance criteria.
Often a key challenge when developing recyclable tubes is the compromise in terms of a tube’s barrier properties, leading to a reduction in shelf-life of the tube’s contents. The Platina range of HDPE tubes does not face this issue as it is designed to deliver source reduction and recyclability without the loss of any barrier properties. This allows for sustained product stability and durable shelf life of the packed content. Platina is especially suited for oral, toiletries, and food brands.
By decreasing Platina’s weight, EPL has once again demonstrated our commitment to “leading the pack” through the conscious reduction of our carbon footprint. Platina is the eco-friendly tube of choice, supporting your brand’s go-green and sustainability goals.

Setting a new curve to packaging innovation, Green Maple Leaf is aimed at markets demanding sustainability by replacing EVOH tubes. It provides extraordinary product stability, shelf life properties, tube resilience and feel. Produced with fully recyclable thermoplastic polymers, Green Maple Leaf helps achieve the ultimate sustainability goal.
RECYCLABLE BARRIER TUBES WITH LOWER CARBON FOOTPRINT
Organic GML is an eco-friendly laminated tube designed in line with “RECYCLE” as the sustainability theme.
Organic GML 300 based laminated tube with less than 5% barrier resin, has got recognition from Association of Plastics Recyclers (APR), USA as meeting or exceeding the APR HDPE CRITICAL GUIDANCE criteria.
Organic GML has got up to 50% Biogenic Carbon content, derived from Sustainable feedstock source as against Carbon derived from Fossil fuels, helping in reducing the product’s carbon footprint and making it an eco-friendly choice.
The higher stiffness of HDPE based O-GML tubes also helps in delivering source reduction, providing good product stability, shelf life, and a rich feel. It is especially suited for oral, personal care and toiletries segments.
Etain is a new, fully-recyclable packaging tube from EPL. It has been made using a percentage of recycled material with the aim of reducing the amount of virgin plastic in tube packaging. Etain tubes will be recycled under Code 2 norms defined by the Society of Plastic Industry. It contains up to 40% PCR HDPE plastic material. Etain tubes are typically used by FMCG companies for packaging various types of beauty and skin care, pharmaceutical and food products. It is made from recycled plastic material and is fully recyclable, enabling it to go back into the same process that it came from.
Etain PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) tubes were launched at the ‘Interpack’ exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany, held on April 24, 2008. It is highly customizable and the amount of PCR can be varied depending upon customer requirements and the nature of the product that is contained within the package. Etain is the first of many products from EPL addressing sustainability. It makes an effort to ensure that the lifecycle of a product does not destroy its source or the environment.
