Application Description

Wilmington, Delaware, August 2005 -- Winner of a 2005 Silver Award in the 18th annual DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation, Maria Galland cosmetics presents a 'high value' line in jars molded with DuPont™ Surlyn® resin. The jars are hot stamped and printed in different colors.  The packaging was developed and produced by Ileos GmbH, an experienced molder of DuPont™ Surlyn® resins. Changing the material of the jar from glass to Surlyn® was accompanied by technically simplifying the cap in ABS/PP with glued seals.

The new material and technical concept lead to a remarkable cost and weight reduction, maintaining high quality optics and warm touch. Energy consumption and recyclability contribute as well to a sustainable package solution.
