Ophthalmic tin tubes continue to be the preferred container for eye ointments. As the desire to create a smooth path for FDA submissions and filings becomes the highest of priorities for eye care companies, tin tubes remain the tube of choice for ointments. Nothing protects formulations better. Nothing offers a cleaner extractable and leachable profile.
The latest trend we are seeing is in very specialized, high-end products, where maximum product protection is required. This market is creating a significant growth opportunity for us.
