Sets/Kits, Droppers, Metal Tins, Measuring Cups/Spoons, Aerosol, Cans, Plugs, Dip Tubing, Other Accessories

McKernan has a large assortment of standard packaging, as well as many miscellaneous items like aerosol, cans and can ends, droppers, measuring cups and spoons, plugs, metal tins, sets and kits, dip tubing and more.

Several of these miscellaneous items are also included in main categories as they are closely related to those items.

Sets and kits are generally made of two or more packaging components. For example, a cylinder round, a continuous thread lip gloss applicator and wiper are combined to create a lip gloss set. Sets can include categories like jar sets, bottle sets, dropper sets, airless packaging, tins, collapsible tube sets, boxes, make-up sets, or trays. Sets can also be almost any combination of packaging components that are matched to create a complete or nearly complete package.

Made with a plastic or glass pipette at one end and a bulb at the other end, droppers are often used in the pharmaceutical, personal care, or pet industries. Pipettes can have a tapered, bulb, blunt, or bent tip with some containing graduated measuring lines. Some droppers are tamper evident and/or child resistant closures. Most droppers are black or white with a clear pipette, but some are metal shelled or have a colorful bulb.

McKernan has carried tins from 1/4 ounce up to a 64 ounces with many other sizes in between available in our Best Value line. Often, metal tin sets are silver in color and can have seams or be seamless. A few types of closures on these tins include a sliding or flat closure or a press-on closure that is made of solid metal or with clear plastic on top.

Measuring cups/spoons include cups, scoops and spoons. Most of these are made of Polypropylene (PP) and can come in a variety of colors with natural being the most common. The cups usually are without a handle, while scoops and spoons usually have a handle. Measuring cups/spoons are generally a single measurement, but some show graduated measurements. These can be used for or measuring product like drink mixes, dry or liquid ingredients, medications, food supplements, laundry applications or in the home & garden industry.

Aerosol cans usually have a one-inch finish with McKernan carrying valves, actuators and caps to match. Actuators and caps at McKernan are available in a wide variety of colors and styles, including mousse style, horn style and sprays. Aerosol cans are available in traditional straight-sided but also be found in a round and a bullet. While the basic color on these cans is the color of the metal, also known as prime, they can also be found in white, champagne, and black.

Cans and can ends are types of open cans that are not pressurized by a propellant gas. Cans and can ends typically are made of metal or a combination of metal and composite without one or both ends. Many of these kinds of cans can be used in the food and beverage category or household use. McKernan carries can ends to fit many non-aerosol cans. Often, these can ends can be plain or have a pull tab.

Plugs can be used on many styles of bottles. Plugs include orifice reducers, dropper tip reducers, nasal applicators and plug closures often used for sample perfume vials. Another type of plug that is usually found with the continuous thread closures is a Euro style orifice reducer. These Euro style droppers work well with most fragrances, essential oils, herbal extracts and more.

McKernan Packaging Clearing House is able to offer custom dip tube lengths for most wholesale and surplus fine mist sprayers, lotion pumps, treatment pumps, foamer pumps, trigger sprayers, crimp sprayers and almost anything else that contains a plastic dip tube. If these items need a dip tube or need a different length dip tube, there are several sizes of tubing in stock and McKernan can rework many sprayers or pumps for an additional fee.
