Label tubes are made by wrapping custom printed paper stock onto the cardboard tubes, not by printing directly onto the tube. The whole process is done by an automatic paper tube labeling machine, where the printed paper will be rolled, pressed, and adhered to the cardboard tube that is held by a mandrel or an industrial-grade roller. The paper stock and adhesives used will depend on if a customer requires a food-grade material or not. Usually, to maintain the quality for label tubes, they are integrated with scratch resistant aqueous coating. Finally, depending on the application, the process of achieving the label tube’s desired appearance may vary and may require secondary finishing steps like foil stamping, embossing, adding gloss UV, and metallic inking.

Labeled tubes offer the adaptability of a wide range of materials for any industry they will be used. One benefit of these tubes are the sizeable customization options due to the availability of a wide range of cardboard types and printing mediums where these can be made from. Label tubes can be wrapped with a variety of materials like litho, semi-gloss, high gloss paper, fluorescent, and foil paper. In addition to their external enhancements, these tubes are internally lined to achieve a food-grade, grease-proof, and water-resistant quality, depending on any customer demand.

Label tubes are a great help in many industries because of their dependability and eco-friendly features. In the food and makeup industry, composite cans are labeled externally and coated internally with food-grade materials that help preserve the quality and freshness of the product. Label tubes are also used for storage and packaging for other commercial products like apparel, wine bottles, candles, perfume bottles, and other consumer products. These are widely used for products that value great aesthetics like gifts, promotional products, and luxury packaging. Finally, for industrial use where label tubes are used for storage of high-end tools and industrial-grade products, these are coated with special types of resin materials to improve and maintain their structural integrity.
