Packaging Tip

Dropper tip plugs are great for dispensing liquids when a controlled amount of product is needed, like with eye drops, pharmaceuticals, dyes, and more. SKS also offers thin tip dropper plugs that feature a narrow opening for dispensing in a stream. Pair durable polypropylene, tamper-evident, child-resistant dropper caps with dropper tips for an added layer of product security. Dropper tip caps and plugs can be paired with a variety of plastic bottles in different shapes and sizes. Dropper bottles feature specialized necks that allow the dropper tip plugs to be inserted correctly and stay in place during application and storage.
