In partnership with Seaquist Closures, a supplier has introduced Pinpoint, an innovative valve-system tube closure designed to enhance product dispensing. With its patented silicone valve tip, Pinpoint delivers a precise cutoff that stops product from dispensing when users cease squeezing the tube.

The soft feel of the silicone valve creates a unique experience for the consumer. Alcan Packaging Beauty, New York City.

The firm has more than 20 years of experience in the field. Yuan Harng Company, Ltd., Xiamen, China.
The Deckless Flip-Loc Dispens-R tube is the most recent addition to a supplier’s tube line. Unlike standard flip-top tube closures, which feature a hinged lid and a deck where the dispensing orifice is located, the snap-on Deckless closure uses the head of the tube as the deck of the closure. Because product flows directly out of the tube and not through the closure, this design minimizes potential product leakage. Tube heads and closures can be single- or dual-colored. Berry Tubed Products LLC, Easthampton, MA.
