Glass-like flacons

 

An innovative packaging material with unique characteristics.
REBHAN Glass-like products are the ideal solution for the majority of packaging tasks. They have many of the advantages of glass, and compensate for some of the disadvantages of this material at the same time. From its visual appeal and brilliance to its safety in use and cost-effectiveness, and also its flexibility and logistical advantages. Present your products in a way that is safe, visually and haptically impressive, and commercially viable at the same time.

Absolute brilliance

Glass-like flacons impress because of their striking resemblance to glass: from their brilliance to their typical light-scattering behaviour to their absolute transparency. They convey luxurious value, and are certain to showcase your product in an optimum way with their solid bases. The glass-like products are coloured directly as part of the extrusion process. The range of possible combinations is extended by additional colours as finishes or gradients and the wide variety of REBHAN decoration options.

Safety and convenience

REBHAN’s glass-like products are exceptionally robust and ideal for daily use both at home and also when out and about. Their tremendous resilience makes them virtually unbreakable, and protects the contents, the customers and their surroundings. REBHAN glass-like packaging also impresses because of its pleasantly light weight. It manages to convey both quality and robustness while also being convenient to use when travelling!

Cost-effectiveness and flexibility

You can choose from a wide range of glass-like products in our standard product range. These can be individually designed using made-to-measure decoration options. The low minimum order quantities are another advantage.

B2C suitability

The strength of the material also minimises waste and down time on the filling line. If you sell your brand products online in a B2C business, your online customers are guaranteed to receive their products without breakages.

Heavy-wall PET

 

An attractive packaging material which is completely recyclable.
In comparison to standard PET, heavy wall PET gives your packaging considerably more stability and strength. You can see and feel the difference! Heavy wall PET packaging solutions are available in clear, transparent or coloured designs and can be decorated in many ways. There are no limits to your creativity.

Increase the marketing opportunities for your product by combining attractiveness with sustainability! Not only are our heavy wall PET bottles easy to recycle, they can also be made even more environmentally friendly by using rPET.

Sustainable materials

 

REBHAN set the course for sustainability very early on:

All of our business processes place environmental awareness at the forefront, a focus that we maintain when developing new, sustainable packaging solutions. We are also continuously researching environmentally friendly alternatives for packaging without reducing the exclusivity of the end product.

Recycled materials

 

Many materials can now be used to produce packaging made from recycled plastic, and more and more options are emerging every day thanks to consistent research. When we are referring to recycled products made from plastic in household waste collections, we talk  about post-consumer recycling (PCR). PCR is packaging which is collected in recycling streams and sent to be reused. However, in addition to rPET, recycled materials can also include rHDPE or rPP and can be mechanically as well as chemically recycled. When industrial plastic waste from manual or mechanical production is recycled, this is referred to as post-industrial recycling (PIR).

Our co-extrusion production process provides numerous ways of increasing the proportion of recycled materials in packaging. Please read more about co-extrusion and other sustainable options in our Green line section.

Bio-based polymers

 

The majority of bioplastics are currently made from agriculturally based raw materials, i.e. from plants that are rich in carbohydrates such as maize or sugar cane from agricultural farming. When these materials are sourced, we ensure that the maize comes from surplus production and is not destined for food. And when using sugar cane, the material comes from the third pressing that can no longer be used as food.

Bio-based and partially bio-based, stable polymers contribute to reducing the CO2 footprint. Compared with conventional plastics, they reduce the dependency on non-renewable raw materials such as crude oil and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Common polymers

 

We offer the entire spectrum of material options.

In addition to our sustainable and special materials, we also use standard plastics such as PET, HDPE and PP to manufacture your product packaging, of course, Our packaging experts would be pleased to advise you regarding suitable materials for your specific product.

PET

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is highly valued for its clear appearance, its light weight and its outstanding recyclability. In its original condition, PET is colourless and semi-crystalline, but can also be coloured using dyes and pigments. PET is very strong and rigid, and is resistant to diluted acids, oils, grease and alcohols.

HDPE – HIGH-DENSITY POLYETHYLENE

HDPE stands for high-density polyethylene. Polyethylene (PE) is a thermoplastic material, which can be deformed at defined temperatures. It is highly resistant to acids, bases, oils and fats. It is therefore very suitable as a packaging material for different substances – including the non-food sector. PE can be recycled on a large scale [recycling code 02].

PP – POLYPROPYLENE

Polypropylene is a versatile and practically neutral thermoplastic which is used in a multitude of everyday applications. It is one of the most frequently used plastics for food packaging. PP is known for its extraordinary resistance to numerous chemical formulas including bases, acids and solvents, and is suitable for hot filling.
