Zhejiang UKPACK Packaging Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce that its mono-material polypropylene (PP) lotion pumps have passed component testing for mono-material compliance.
Recent testing was conducted by CTI on the UKPACK mono-material PP lotion pump (Model UKAP03). The testing included density measurement and quantitative analysis of all components. View the mono-material test report of lotion pumps.
Results showed the lotion pump contains 99% PP polymer, with the remainder consisting of additives like antioxidants, lubricants, and oils necessary for processing and functionality. No other polymers or materials were detected.
“We are thrilled that UKPACK’s efforts to develop an innovative mono-material PP lotion pump have proven successful,” said Lucas Ji, UKPACK CEO. “The lotion pump achieved our internal specifications, and now has passed critical independent testing for mono-material compliance. This enables brands to simplify their recycling streams and reduce environmental impact.”
UKPACK’s mono-material PP lotion pumps are fully recyclable, and solve previous challenges of separating PP from non-PP components. By using a novel production process, UKPACK has created a more sustainable pump option for lotions, creams, gels, and other personal care products.
The new mono-material lotion pumps are available for order now. Brands interested in sustainable packaging solutions can contact UKPACK directly for pricing information and samples.
