Color print advertisement for Durafilm, a transparent film manufactured and sold by the Dobeckmun Company, a division of the Dow Chemical Company based in Cleveland, Ohio. The advertisement details the use of Durafilm to create the new Ultra Pak for use packaging food, drugs, and cosmetics in liquid, powder, and solid form. An image of Helene Curtis shampoo enclosed in the new Ultra Pak is featured at the center of the advertisement, with accompanying images of bubbles and an inset of a woman's face.
Dobeckmun (short for Dolan, Becker and Munson, the company's the co-founders) was a leading manufacturer of cellophane bags and cigar pouches. The Dow Chemical Company acquired Dobeckmun in 1957.
