Products made of Grand Luxe are rugged and designed to withstand normal use. Mishaps won’t damage sinks or tiles, either. Consumers appreciate the toughness of the packaging combined with an attractive appearance, a comfortable weight, and ease of portability.
Grand Luxe bottles are designed to be tough. The material easily withstands drop tests of 1.5 metres which emulate falling from a counter-top in the typical household. Companies looking to launch a new brand can rest assured their delivery of standard Grand Luxe bottles will arrive intact.
Easy to take along
Combining low weight with incredible resilience, packaging made of Grand Luxe containers can hold products designed for on-the-go lifestyles. Grand Luxe items are an excellent choice for just about anything that can be tossed into a gym bag, purse, or overnight bag.
A proper weight in the hand is an indication of a solid product, and consumers can feel the product's comfortable heft immediately. It is not too light which would make it feel cheap and flimsy. By ensuring the container is a proper weight, consumers enjoy a an excellent and luxurious user experience.
For the whole family
Some materials that fracture easily can be challenging to use by younger or older family members. Even if dropped on bathroom or kitchen tiles, Grand Luxe packaging does not shatter. Young consumers can use products without parents fearing for their safety. Older consumers find it easy to hold and substantial.
Grand Luxe is an attractive and versatile material that can take packaging to another level of appearance. The material can combine unlimited colours and exceptional transparency, to take packaging into a higher market category.
Instant colour and deco changes
Grand Luxe can be made in any colour at little cost. Colouring is done in mould during the extrusion process, adding no time to the manufacturing process. Apart from masterbatch colouring, secondary colouring can be applied in decoration with lacquering or leading to gradients and millions of colour combinations.
A key property of Grand Luxe is its luminescence. It genuinely resembles glass and refracts light in the same way, making it sparkle. Thick walls and bases don’t affect the brilliance of the material, it still remains completely transparent, allowing brands to showcase the attractive contents within.
Enhanced base and wall thicknesses
It is the slight imperfections of glass that make it attractive, and Grand Luxe emulates this perfectly. Grand Luxe offers a more natural and bespoke appearance, giving an impression of luxury and high value.
Luxury look and feel
The brilliance of the material combines with natural flow lines and sharp edges. Angles can be as well-defined and distinct as required to enhance refraction and provide an appearance that is identical to glass, without any of the drawbacks of the latter.
Grand Luxe offers numerous economic benefits that can directly affect your business. By cutting down on tooling costs and with low MOQs, Grand Luxe is a versatile and effective material that can help you to optimize total costs of ownership while still offering your product in excellent packaging.
The ISBM technology used to create Grand Luxe packaging is unique. No parison is involved in the process, and the results are evident. Neck dimensions are extremely precise with negligible tolerances. Also, there is nearly no visible seam on the container, making it close to prefect in presentation and appeal.
New and different
Without having to create a custom solution, standard Grand Luxe packaging is perfectly suitable for products all on its own. By decorating our standard range, Grand Luxe packaging is ready to be used as quick turnkey solution that gets products looking their best in no time.
MOQ of 10k
If a standard Grand Luxe range is selected, the MOQ (minimum order quantity) can be as low as 10,000 pieces to mold and 5,000 pieces to decorate. You can launch a line with a low entry ticket, test the waters, and order more as required.
Grand Luxe packaging requires no special considerations, meaning you can reduce your new product introduction (NPI) time to market. Adjustments to configuration or decoration can be made nearly on the fly, making production even quicker. You can try other dispensers as all bottle neck sizes fit international standards or play with overcaps in different colours or surfaces.
Being a genuine polymer, Grand Luxe is eminently recyclable as well as requiring less energy during the production phase. The material offers a number of benefits that help keep emission and energy consumption numbers down.
Part of PET recycling
PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is probably the most recycled plastic on the planet. It falls under category 1 of plastic recycling. Grand Luxe falls in the exact same group, meaning it can be recycled in the same fashion that PET is.
Low energy manufacturing
The highest temperature that is required when manufacturing Grand Luxe packaging is about 240º Celsius. The average manufacturing temperature for glass is between 1,400º and 1,600º. This amounts to less energy used during production leading to lower CO2 emission levels.
Grand Luxe does not require any special lacquers, harsh colourants, or chemical adherents in order to decorate packaging surfaces. Hence, all the lacquers we use on our Grand Luxe decoration lines are water-based and do not impact negatively on the environment.
We offer a number of materials that are excellent for your packaging as well as caring for the environment. Using bio-PET is an excellent way to ensure packaging is part of the easily recycled PET stream, especially when combined with low energy manufacturing and eco-sensitive decoration.
Grand Luxe offers key advantages throughout the supply chain to ensure smooth operations and customer fulfilment. The physical properties of the material make it easier to operate and maintain lines as well as ship at lower breakage rates.
Easy line feeding
The surface of Grand Luxe packaging is regular and smooth, with even weight distribution. Additives to the resin composition can also make the material offer less friction. On lines, this amounts to easier feeding and a lack of snags so that lines run smoothly with fewer bottlenecks and lower rates of error.
High performance materials
Since Grand Luxe is virtually indestructible under normal usage conditions, there are less broken items on lines. This leads to fewer line stoppages and fewer packaging pieces that have to go into the bin.
By using a lighter material, each palette shipped is lower in weight. This amounts to less energy required to ship Grand Luxe packaging, leading to less CO2 emissions derived from transport.
Great unboxing experience
Many companies ship directly to consumers via mail order or online purchase. By packaging products in Grand Luxe, the end consumer receives a package that is virtually guaranteed to arrive without breakage. Since the material is lighter, it also costs less to ship, making it the perfect material for Internet order fulfilment.
