How do you make Crest toothpaste striped?
The paste and gel parts are made in separate tanks. A filling machine with a nozzle specially designed for striping is used to fill the tube. This nozzle has eight segmented areas, like a pie pattern. Each area contains either paste or gel in an alternating pattern. The filling nozzle goes into the tube and the toothpaste flows out into the striped pattern you see when you use the toothpaste. This whole filling operation takes just a few seconds.
After the tubes are filled with striped product and packed into cartons, they are held for a while before they are released for shipment. This allows it to thicken so the stripes won't mix. Once this happens, the striped tubes can be handled without any significant change in the striping pattern, even during use at home. Of course, some mixing of the stripes may be noticeable as you get to the bottom of the tube. If this happens, don't worry; the product is still safe and effective for use.
