Artists Love Clear Seamless Packaging Tubes

Petro Packaging manufactures clear seamless packaging tubes and caps in various sizes that are used for the production and packaging of oil sticks for painting. Experienced artists are moving away from the old method of paint brushes and are now using hand-crafted oil sticks – same texture as oil paint but with the control of using a pastel or crayon.

Our tubes are first used as a mold to form the shape of the oil sticks. Then after they are formed, the sticks are then placed in a new clear plastic tube with natural slip-on caps at each end.

The tubes keep the oil sticks protected so any damage or breakage is prevented and help keep the sticks from becoming dried out when they are not being used.

Plastic Extrusions Manufacturers and the Hula Hoop

plastic extrusions manufacturersPetro Packaging is one of the leading custom plastic extrusions manufacturers in the industry. Our extrusion expertise was founded during the infancy of the plastics revolution.

In the late 1950’s, the Petro family embarked on an industry that was uncharted and relatively unknown at the time. With the development of the Hula Hoop and the garden hose, custom plastic extrusions manufacturers engineered new products that emerged at a dizzying pace. The extrusion process exploded and new thermoplastics were being developed providing unlimited opportunities for almost every industry.

The Petro family took advantage of this opportunity, purchasing extrusion equipment and employing the services of the returning veterans of WWII. Self taught and self motivated, the Petro story began.
