French company Roctool specialises in patented technology for hi-tech, aerospace and now cosmetics
Automotive and hi-tech plastic injection company Roctool has expanded into beauty packaging.
The French-based company specialises in a patented technology that produces plastic parts without the follow-up procedures, such as painting and decoration.
According to Roctool, its method is eco-friendly as it is suitable for standard, recycled and bio-sourced resins and reduces the need for coatings that contribute to a harmful carbon footprint.
“Our technology allows no compromise between luxury and sustainability. Today, the two must go hand in hand,” said Mathieu Boulanger, CEO of Roctool.
“As such, we are pushing our research in several areas: with designers from around the world, suppliers of innovative materials, and of course with our customers, whose expectations we share.
“We are well aware that our industry has entered a new era, a challenge we are committed to overcoming every day.”
Roctool Beauty Solutions is said to be suitable for all types of make-up, skin care and fragrance packaging solutions, including bottles, flexible and rigid tubes, jars and all types of lids and caps.
It can also use its heating technology to control temperature in the mould to create ultra-thin parts, shiny, matte and textured surfaces.
Roctool added that it can also remove defects, such as injection points, weld lines and all other material-flow lines.
