German Packaging Award Ceremoniy on 27th September 2022 in Nuernberg.

Two entries – two wins!


In the category Sustainability the TUBEX aluminium can manufactured with an over varnish made of pure natural ingredients received an award. The ingredients are biodegradable and completely free of mineral oils. When selecting the raw materials, the supplier and development partner PURe Inks made sure that they were mostly food grade – which means it would be possible to eat a very small portion (fingertip) of the over varnish. The over varnish, which is still in the development stage, complements the TUBEX strategy of offering customers the “Most Sustainable Aluminum Aerosol Can in the World” in a perfect way.

In the field of decoration of aerosol cans there are also new developments.

One of these developments – the Foil2Can prototype – won the second German Packaging Award for TUBEX in the category Design and Processing. The special feature of the aluminium can is that the decoration perfectly combines matt and gloss effects in one design. The Foil2Can aluminium aerosol can was realized in collaboration with Isimat.

The prestigious German Packaging Award was launched in 1963 and is under the patronage of Dr. Robert Habeck, Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection.
The 38 winners of the German Packaging Prize come from 6 countries and are divided amongst all 10 categories. The category Sustainability had with 100 entries the most entries in one category and 10 German Packaging Awards were handed over in this category.

The TUBEX Team is very pleased to have been awarded with two German Packaging Awards at the same time.
