The new RMK firming essence from Kanebo, an Asian brand for high-end cosmetic goods, has used an inner shape made of high density polyethylene (HDPE) overmolded by DuPont’s Surlyn 3D technology.
Surlyn 3D stands for Design, Decoration and Deth. It is able to combine two shapes into a special container by preforming, decorating and overmolding. Thus, the flacon a thick wall, high glossy luxurious appearance with a sensitive haptic, according to DuPont.
“Surlyn in the outer layer offers a high scratch-resistance and is unbreakable which helps to protect the product in a to-go environment like a lady’s handbag,” explains Peter Lamboy, Director, Packaging Development of KAO Europe Research Laboratories in Germany, who was supporting the development of this application. “Beside this the technology offers versatile decoration possibilities and an option for a cost efficient development of flankers for future line extensions.”
