Tube markings can be in hot foil for standard lettering or ink jet printed for individual specialist markings, we have used UV ink to invisible print product details, which are only visible under UV light.  We are happy to ‘own brand’ your product with the exact details you require so please feel free to get in touch and speak to a member of our team.

Antimicrobial Plastic

We can offer products with an antimicrobial active ingredient that will reduce microbes on the surface of the product, making it more suitable for certain environments.  An added benefit is that moulds and mildew can be reduced.  The active components used in the additive are notified on the biocidal products directive and have EFSA and FDA approval for use in foot contact applications.
