At Interpack, TekniPlex to Showcase New Advancements in Sustainable Closure Liner, Sealing & Dispensing Technologies
TekniPlex, a globally integrated provider of innovative solutions through materials science and manufacturing technologies, will showcase its latest advancements in consumer packaging materials for a wide variety of products at Interpack, May 4-10 in Düsseldorf. At Hall 7, Level 1, Booth C25, TekniPlex will highlight a variety of new closure liner, sealing and dispensing products that illustrate the company’s mission to expand its portfolio of sustainable solutions.
Many of the solutions TekniPlex will exhibit at Interpack leverage its materials science prowess in both virgin and sustainable solutions, which help customers navigate their varying sustainability goals and commitments. For example, TekniPlex’s ProTecSeals® are 100% polypropylene (PP) coextruded foam liners ideally compatible with PP closures, jars, bottles and containers, particularly in the cosmetics and beverage industries. Liners made from the same base polymer as a closure enhance the ability of materials recovery facilities to identify and reprocess the structure into next generation materials. The food-approved material highlights TekniPlex’s commitment to designing mono-material solutions that enable higher recyclability rates.
Another product on display at the show will be TekniPlex’s extensive line of ProTecFlow™ Dip Tubes, which are comprised partly or entirely of recycled materials. The solutions offer a reduced environmental impact compared to conventional dispensing tubing products made from virgin materials, while maintaining the same high-quality performance characteristics.
“Our team works exceptionally hard to leverage materials science expertise across all areas of our business, toward the goal of creating high-performing, more sustainable solutions for multiple industries – both in consumer products and healthcare applications,” said Eldon Schaffer, Chief Executive Officer, TekniPlex Consumer Products division. “We look forward to sharing our expertise with attendees and demonstrating the capabilities of our materials at Interpack.”
Other highlighted products include:

- TekniPlex’s Transparent Tubing enhances the visual appeal and elegance of perfumery packaging with a minimalist design that mimics the sleek look of glass tubing without the risk of breakage. This solution offers a unique, modern touch to help brands stand out on store shelves.
