Global eye healthcare company Bausch + Lomb has made the switch from a white HDPE bottle to a transparent PET one for its “renu fresh”-brand of lens cleaning solution. The brand owner tapped R&D/Leverage to help with the package’s design and molds, and turned to Amcor Rigid Plastics for blowmolding of the packages.

The package labels also have evolved, with clear, polyolefin pressure-sensitive labels replacing the previous white labels. Texture of the bottles’ exteriors helps move them quickly through production lines and also enhances end-user ergonomics.

A clear trend: HDPE to PET.

After blowmolding the bottles are transported directly to a clean room where they are packed and then shipped to Bausch + Lomb for filling. The PET bottles are topped with snap-on caps and are available in 2-, 4-, 8-, 12-, and 16-oz sizes. —mpweditorial@cancom.com
