FaiveleyTech, a French-based group specialized in plastic injection, through its Beauty Business Unit in Orgelet manufacturing site, produced the cap for Icon, the latest women’s fragrance by Banderas Perfumes.
While the packaging of the men’s fragrance offered sharp and sober lines, in bluish tones and graded transparency, the women’s version is distinguished by an assumed roundness and sensuality, enhanced by the power of a bright pink.
Recycled and recyclable PET
By combining PET and recycled material, the cap was developed in line with eco-design principles and circularity in sight. It incorporates a part of recycled material (thus requiring less virgin PET for a lower carbon footprint) while being recyclable in the existing streams.
The overmoulding process, the need to have no injection point visible from the outside, as well as the round shape, the massive single-piece structure, and the perfect match between the cap and the bottle implied to overcome a series of technical challenges.
The cap manufacturing also required some additional investments on top of the existing machinery, with peripheral elements for automated production and control.
« We have invested significantly in the means of production to support the brand’s ambitions. FaiveleyTech Orgelet’s teams are proud to have realized this elegant cap and to have been able to demonstrate, once again, their ability to innovate to meet the most demanding requests of perfume houses», explains Beryl Tomaschett, Key Account Manager, FaiveleyTech Orgelet
This cap was made for the 50 and 100 ml formats of the perfume.
