Tobenatural: an aluminium collapsible tube with a compostable cap

ToBeNaturAL

The then Favia Tubettificio, always active in the search for innovation from the technological and sustainable point of view, has studied the implementation of an ecological and biodegradable closure capsule for its tubes.

It is a capsule made of a biopolymer, called bioplastic, a material of natural origin obtained from various sources such as cellulose, pineapple stalk or algae; all plant sources that give rise to a material similar to traditional plastic in terms of strength, stability and flexibility.

Tobenatural: an aluminium collapsible tube with a compostable cap

For the compostable capsule, the company has chosen certified technopolymers comparable to hard plastic in terms of strength, robustness and reliability, but of completely natural origin.

Art and Science

The bio-materials chosen are a perfect combination of Science and Nature, the result of the patient research work carried out by the best European laboratories over the years of work and dedication.

Compostable

It retains its integrity for a long time in using context, but once its use cycle is over it can be disposed of as organic waste because it has the ability to degrade completely.

Eco friendly

It can then be thrown among household organic waste, turning itself into humus fertilizer for the soil from which new plants can grow. A true symbol of rebirth that goes well with aluminum, capable of being reborn infinite times because it is infinitely recyclable.

100% Endlessly recyclable

In fact, collapsible aluminium tubes are the perfect example of sustainable packaging: aluminium is 100% recyclable to infinity without ever losing its original qualities. Furthermore, the recycling process requires 95% less energy than raw material production.
