TricorBraun Wins Silgan Plastics Packaging Awards
TricorBraun has received Silgan Plastics Quarterly Awards for a Lexington Round bottle it supplied to Faultless Starch and for a Cosmo Round bottle it provided to Dentisse, Inc., a manufacturer of oral care products.
The new Faultless product is a liquid starch and is the first in the product line to be dispensed with a pump rather than an aerosol propellant. The new product applies “heavy starch,” much like a commercial laundry. TricorBraun provided a 20-ounce, HDPE bottle manufactured in a custom dark blue and embellished with a pressure sensitive label. It uses a trigger sprayer with a 28-410 neck finish.
Faultless Starch is manufactured by the Faultless Starch/Bon Ami Company, Kansas City, Mo.
For Dentisse, TricorBraun provided a 16-ounce, PET bottle, which is used to market an oral rinse product. It was manufactured in a custom turquoise color to match the firm’s other products: tooth paste and lip balm. The decoration is silkscreen and the bottle features a raised design of mint leaves, the company’s symbol. It has a phenolic plastic screw cap and a 24-410 neck finish.
Dentisse mouth rinse does not include alcohol which many consumers find has a burning and drying sensation. The company is located in Huntertown, Ind.
