February 27, 2024

Introduction: As cosmetic packaging innovation attracts more and more attention from brands, the innovation models of packaging materials have also become diverse, from modeling innovation to structural and functional innovation, as well as the current cross-border combination innovation of packaging materials and instruments. Other models and different packaging material innovation models have opened up creative sources for brand innovation. As packaging materials, environmentally friendly materials have always been favored by brands and consumers, such as bamboo packaging. At this stage, bamboo packaging has been fully integrated into cosmetic packaging materials. The family, from lipstick tubes, bottle caps, bottle shell, etc., all have bamboo packaging. In this article, we will learn some information about bamboo packaging with you for your reference:

   1. Learn About Bamboo Cosmetic Packaging   

Bamboo Cosmetic Packaging refers to products made by Bamboo Cosmetic Packaging processing plants using bamboo as processing raw materials: in China, most of them are made into daily necessities. But today we introduce to you some styles used in cosmetic packaging, such as: Bamboo Lotion Bottles / Bamboo Cream Jars / Bamboo Bottles.

   2. Advantages And Disadvantages Of Bamboo Products   

01. Advantages:

• Prevent rheumatoid arthritis. Bamboo has the ability to automatically adjust and maintain temperature. It does not cool or release heat, and is warm in winter and cool in summer.

• Healthy eyesight. The texture of bamboo has the function of absorbing ultraviolet rays. The color is elegant, soft and warm, which is beneficial to human vision and can reduce the occurrence  of myopia.

• Reduce noise. Bamboo itself has the functions of sound absorption, sound insulation, reducing sound pressure and shortening the residual sound time.

• Avoid allergic asthma. After bamboo is steamed, bleached, and carbonized at high temperatures, all nutrients in the bamboo fibers are removed, completely destroying the living conditions for moths and bacteria, preventing mildew, and reducing the occurrence of asthma and allergies.

• Natural characteristics. Bamboo, like people, is a natural life form, and the texture of bamboo has regular changes in irregularities. Bamboo has natural colors and special textures. Natural materials are a symbol of elegance and preciousness. It exudes natural fragrance, beautiful bamboo texture, and also emits fresh and fragrant gas, which is beneficial to physical and mental health.

02. Disadvantages:

• It is prone to insects and mold, and will be deformed and cracked by the environment.

• Most of them are hand-woven and not as tight as steel wooden furniture.

   3. Selection Of Bamboo Packaging Materials   

The production of bamboo handicrafts is very particular about the selection of materials. Generally, you go to the mountains after winter, before spring, when the weather is fine, and prepare two large iron pots, some caustic soda, bamboo knives, axes, curium and other tools. It is best to choose bamboo that is two years old. None of the above are suitable if they are too young or too old. When selecting bamboo, only take five or six knots from the middle section of the bamboo, and choose one with a smooth surface, no scabs and no injuries. After felling, you must also pay attention to protection. Once injured, there is no way to recover. To make a pen holder, you can choose one close to the root. Cut the length first. The length of the pen holder is generally about 12 centimeters. It will be difficult to use if it is more than 15 or 6 centimeters. The armrest material can be as long as possible. After cutting down the bamboo, immediately set up a pot, boil water, add caustic soda, and simmer over low heat for a long time. After a few hours, take out the bamboo tube and bamboo slices from the heat, wipe off the bamboo juice on the surface, immediately put them in another pot of boiling water, and continue cooking. Each pot takes about three hours. After the time is up, don't rush to take it out. Wait until the water gradually warms up, then wipe the surface clean, and cover the bamboo skin side with thick paper to protect it from scratches. Every time you cut bamboo, try to take as much as possible, because the loss will be greater later, so the focus of material selection is

01. Bamboo is more than two years old and old bamboo has poor toughness.

02. The thickness and thickness of the bamboo wall should be appropriate. Thicker is not always better.

03. Protect the original green skin of the bamboo. If the green skin is damaged, it cannot be repaired, and it will cause color difference on the bamboo surface in the future.

04. Opening the pieces in time can release the tension of the bamboo, allowing the fiber to have room to shrink.

05. Master the boiling time. After opening the slices, put it in the pot as soon as possible. Don’t wait until it goes down the mountain before cooking (the bamboo will be infested with insects, cracking, and mildew, which are all caused by not handling it in time)

After cutting the bamboo and returning home, spread it out to dry in the shade for several days. Be careful to prevent moisture and mildew. Then take advantage of the winter sunshine and bask in it! Leave it in the sun until the beginning of spring. If problems such as cracking occur during this period, discard it. After spring. Store the dried bamboo in a cool, dry place and pay attention to ventilation. Take it out for inspection every year and keep it for more than three years. If it is not bad, you can use it with confidence. Such material is as strong as jade and will turn red over time. It is a rare treasure.

   4. Processing Of Bamboo Packaging   

A method for making bamboo packaging patterns. According to the different layers of bamboo slices used in bamboo packaging the first layer is scraped green (including top green), and the second and third layers are second green. Different methods are used to make patterns, scraped green (including top green). The production of bamboo packaging patterns is to place bamboo products flat in a magnetic field with a magnetic induction intensity of 0.5-1.5T, and cover the bamboo products with acid-resistant and deformation-resistant art molds (negative molds) carved with various patterns. , spray nitric acid (or a mixture of nitrate and other strong acids) or sulfuric acid or a mixture of nitric acid and sulfuric acid with various concentrations of 5-65% (weight percent concentration) onto the pattern of the mold, and the acid passes through the engraved pattern of the positive mold. On bamboo chips, you can also directly use the above-mentioned acid solution to draw on the product without using a mold, and then bake it at a controlled temperature of 80°C-120°C for 3-5 minutes to cause an esterification reaction between the acid solution and bamboo fiber, thereby making the bamboo packaging Showing beautiful patterns of different shades that do not fade; Erqing bamboo packaging patterns are produced by placing bamboo products flat in a magnetic field with a magnetic induction intensity of 0.5-1.5T, and using corrosion-resistant materials engraved with various patterns. The mold (male mold) is covered on the Erqing bamboo packaging, and then the following processes are carried out:

01. Spray 1% (weight percentage concentration) dioctyl sulfosuccinate sodium salt rapid penetrating agent onto the entire bamboo packaging and mold;

02. Then spray a highly corrosive acidic or alkaline or salt solution. The concentration of the solution depends on the pattern requirements;

03. Spray the color fixing agent hexahydro-1, 3, 5-triacryloyltriazine (concentration is 1% by weight);

04. Spray nitrocellulose varnish;

05. Remove the mold and obtain a pattern with dark surroundings and the original pattern of bamboo packaging.

   5. Quality control of bamboo packaging   

Bamboo packaging is China's bulk export agricultural product. Safety and health issues related to the production of bamboo handicrafts and bamboo packaging for paints have also attracted increasing attention from relevant countries, and the situation is very serious. There are also some problems that can easily lead to unstable product quality and lead to products carrying harmful organisms.

At present, the main methods for killing harmful organisms in wood and bamboo include fumigation and heat treatment. Bamboo packaging and processing plants must have a drying process during the production and processing process. As long as key indicators such as temperature, humidity and time are properly controlled, the purpose of harmful treatment can also be achieved. Therefore, heat treatment can be the first choice for effective pest control treatment by wood product companies. method. Some companies are equipped with wood drying equipment, but in order to remove moisture from the wood while reducing cracking and deformation, companies generally use low-temperature drying. However, this treatment method is far from meeting the treatment requirements of killing harmful organisms using high temperature and high humidity, and can easily lead to mold and insect growth in the finished product.

Anti-mold experts believe that mildew prevention mainly focuses on raw material processing and finished product protection. Raw material processing mainly involves anti-mold treatment of bamboo that has not yet been deeply processed. Generally, it is soaked with bamboo anti-mold agent and allowed to air dry for 5 to 10 minutes. , allowing the anti-mildew factors to adhere to these bamboo materials that have not been deeply processed, and then processing them after drying can make the products have anti-mildew functions.

The other is the treatment of the finished product. If the raw materials have been treated, the finished product will have anti-mold function, and there is no need to carry out anti-mold treatment again. However, for finished bamboo handicrafts made without treatment, we Anti-mildew treatment is also required. This mainly involves surface treatment of the product and control of the packaging environment. Surface treatment mainly involves spraying the surface of the finished product with bamboo anti-mildew spray to form an anti-mildew protective layer on the surface of the product to protect it from mold. The main control of the replacement environment is that the product needs to have a good environment in a relatively sealed space, with low relative humidity and an environment full of anti-mildew factors. This can also be done easily. Put a label on the product packaging. Biochemical desiccant, according to the size of the product, you can choose appropriate specifications such as 1G, 2G, 4G, 10G, etc. The anti-mildew tablets produced using slow-release technology can well maintain the anti-mildew environment. You can also choose different specifications according to different products. It can easily control relative humidity, maintain a mildew-proof space, and protect products from mold within 6 months.
