Berlin Packaging stocks a wide range of pumps including treatment pumps, high-output pump caps, and lotion pumps. Plastic-dispensing pumps are convenient and often less messy, making them an attractive option. Food-grade pumps work well for condiments and other edible products and there are FDA-approved options, as well, for companies that need to meet strict requirements.
Choosing a Pump Type
For products that need to be dispensed in very small amounts, such as medicated lotions or certain types of cosmetics, low-dose treatment pump caps are the most suitable option, as they dispense contents in microliters. Choose high-output pump caps for products meant to be dispensed in larger quantities like shampoos and conditioners. Lotion pump caps are the most fitting for personal care products in general, such as body washes, hand and body lotions, or shampoos. Foaming pumps are suitable for dispensing items like soaps. Airless pump caps are alternatives to regular pumps, as they don't require dip tubes and can give the products a streamlined look. When using these, they'll need to match the airless bottles.
Customization According to Product Types and Branding
Pump caps, for the most part, are available separately and can be used with a wide range of bottle types. You can purchase caps in different colors including black, gold, and white, so that branding and overall look can be taken into account. There are also different dip tube length options, in order to pair pumps with bottles of various heights. More customization options include choosing smooth pump caps for a sophisticated look or ribbed ones for extra grip.
Facts About PP
Most pump caps are made from polypropylene or PP, which is a strong plastic that doesn't damage easily. It also doesn't leach chemicals, making it a suitable plastic choice for packaging food items. While it's advised not to use it with chlorinated products or aromatics, it can be used to package a wide range of chemicals. PP is recyclable, making it a green option.
