DuPont™ Surlyn® 3D Technology Protects Kose’s “Revolution White” Skin Care Bottle

Monaco, October 2013 - The flacon of “Revolution White” skin care bottle, new member of the Astablanc range by Kosé, leading Japanese company for cosmetic and skin care, is made by using DuPont™ Surlyn® 3D technology. The 30-mil serum phial is designed in an elegant and transparent approach.  The branding decoration is applied on the inner shape and therefore sublimated and protected by the outer Surlyn® layer against scratches or other influences from outside, which is one of the advantages of the patented DuPont technology.

Surlyn® 3D technology involves the overmolding of a single or multilayer polymer inner container with glass-like transparent, highly-durable Surlyn® resins. Named Surlyn® 3D, the D’s stand for Design, Decoration and Depth.  Enhancements from DuPont include - on an aesthetic level - the creation of complementary and opposing shapes and colors for the inner and outer containers of perfume, personal care and make-up packaging.

On a more practical level, the material combinations possible with Surlyn® 3D technology can lead to improved barrier properties and chemical resistance according to the cosmetics ingredients and application. The final result is the creation of cosmetic and perfume packaging with glass-like transparency, luxury decorative effects and increased consumer safety and convenience that simultaneously reflect brand identity and achieve product differentiation.
