The result of the cooperation was extremely successful: two joint patents have been applied for.
The crucial impetus for this development came from the customer Unilever which gives sustainability top priority. At that time, TUBEX and NEUMAN were not able to offer a competitive solution for alloys compared to their competition in this area. The only solution was: to redevelop the alloy slugs. The good, fast, uncomplicated and especially trusting collaboration between the two subsidiaries made it happen quickly and successfully.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF THE NEW SLUG?
An aerosol can made from the new material is significantly lighter. The drop in weight is up to 17%. TUBEX and NEUMAN now offer customers: Sustainability through weight reduction. And most important – we not only caught up with the competition, we also realized a new standard for TUBEX through new tools (press and conification) and packaging in layers.
