Let's take a minute to highlight a few of the many amazing new products of 2013!
In May, SKS Bottle and Packaging added the white LDPE/HDPE tubes with matching white flip top caps! These open tubes are made from a blended resin. The combination of 70% LDPE and 30% HDPE makes the tube squeezable, which allows the product to be easily dispensed. Making these tubes a good option for packaging lotion, body wash, hair product and much more!
The new white and black mini trigger sprayers are offered in a variety of dip tube lengths to fit most any 24/410 bottle SKS stocks. All of the mini trigger sprayers have an output of 0.2 cc (210 MCL). They also have a valve engine, which can uniquely handle products with a higher viscosity, such as lotions and gels. Perhaps most importantly, they have an attention grabbing look! They are modern, clean, professional and high end.

SKS added a variety of candle jars to the collection this year. Round, square, short, tall, candle jars with lids, candle jars without lids, frosted, clear, etc. A variation was added to suit most any candle packaging need!

2013 brought with it brand new silver and gold deep lug caps! These 70/2035 caps are about 15 mm high versus the standard lug cap which is about 10 mm high. They are compatible with the16.5 oz clear glass wide mouth jars. Both caps feature a button on top that will pop once the tamper evident hermetic seal has been broken.

Last but not least are the new HDPE boston rounds. Offered in 1/2, 2, 4 and 8 oz sizes, these white HDPE boston rounds can be easily paired with an assortment of closures. Click below to browse the selection of kits SKS matched each bottle with. Bear in mind, HDPE is harder, stronger and heavier than LDPE and PE. It offers good resistance to chemicals, which is why it is commonly used to package many household and industrial cleaning products. Try the white HDPE boston rounds with pumps, sprayers, disc top caps and much more!
Glass French Square Bottles
Packaging is an area that is far more versatile than most think. Try using our bottles and jars around the home for organizational and storage containers. For example, our clear glass French Square Bottles can be used to neatly, creatively and conveniently organize your kitchen or pantry. Use the 2 oz or 4 oz sizes with cork stoppers to organize and display your spices and herbs. The 16 oz with black phenolic caps could be a unique way to conveniently store foods such as grains or oats. Add a personal touch by painting a chalkboard label onto these bottles to create a label that can be easily changed or print out custom labels. Presenting everyday items in a clever or different way gives your home a personal touch.
