Tekni Films Launches PE Thermoform Films for Cosmetic Applications

Published on 2019-09-20. Author : SpecialChem

tekniplex polythene filmsTekni-Films is introducing a new line of Tekniflex® PX monolayer, laminated and polyethylene thermoformable films for cosmetic applications.

Melissa Green, Senior Director Global Marketing–Films said that thermoforming is now the go-to processing technology for the fast-paced, evolving cosmetics promotional packaging market.

Thermoforming offers shape customization benefits with limited tooling costs and a luxurious sampling option for premium brands.

Thermoforms are formed into three-dimensional packages, mimicking full-sized, retail versions unlike sachets and packets which are two dimensional.

Tekniflex PX monolayer copolyester carries a “resin code 1” and provides an alternative for more “challenging to recycle” thermoformable materials.

Tekniflex PX thermoformable films features:


  • Tekniflex PXP (lamination to polyethylene (PE), for improved peel or weld seals)

  • Tekniflex PXA (lamination to Aclar® film for enhanced moisture barrier and chemical resistance) 

  • Tekniflex PXAP (lamination to Aclar film and PE for enhanced moisture barrier, chemical resistance and sealability)  

  • Tekniflex PXPO (lamination to EVOH for improved oxygen barrier, sealability and product compatibility)

“Tekniflex PX thermoformable films let you push creative shape boundaries. Our material structures will meet your performance objectives, shorten your speed-to-market and give you a competitive edge when trying to differentiate cosmetics in a crowded category,” said Green.
