Choosing the right glass bottle is important for showcasing your products, protecting consumers, and appropriate preservation. When choosing a glass bottle for your products, there are four critical steps:
Consider your production processes
Think about your desired aesthetic
Choose packaging based on the properties of your product
Make sure you select the correct closure
One of the advantages of glass bottles is the ability to clean them using low or high-heat sterilization methods. A glass bottle will also withstand both hot and cold high-pressure packaging methods because of its durable structure. Use industrial standard filling practices to ensure the best product quality; the current standard is nominal capacity. To understand why filling to nominal capacity matters it is beneficial to understand bottle anatomy. Nominal capacity filling leaves what’s known as headspace, from the shoulder to the mouth of a bottle. This type of fill allows liquid expansion due to rapid cooling or boiling over during heated processing. Thinner clear glass bottles will have a harder time standing up to high-pressure bottling or processing methods. Using thicker clear glass bottles can help prevent cracking or exploding when using high-pressure methods. Short neck bottles are not ideal for water-rich liquids because there is little room for liquid expansion during processing.
Glass has aesthetic appeal, especially expertly crafted colored glass bottles. A clear long neck glass water bottle is striking in appearance wearing any design label. Boston Round bottles come in several colors, and have shorter necks that work well with a variety of pump caps for shampoos, conditioners, and lotions. The classic shape of Boston Round bottles, and availability of glass colors, makes it a popular packaging option for many products. Customer can also work with Berlin's in-house design studio to create special molds that create indentations or raised designs in glass bottles, or choose acid etching options. How you plan to decorate your packaging has a significant impact on what glass bottles are right for your needs.
The glass bottle that works best will depend on the product you package. There is a color, shape, and proper closure for all bottled products that can help enhance your product, or make it stand out. Thickly constructed French Square bottles are commonly used for more viscous products like glues, syrups, and bubble bath. Using amber glass bottles helps protect medications from UV and blue light that can affect potency. Tall cylindrical bottles like glass Dorica Oil bottles are a stunning option for both food and massage oils. For bottling medications or liquor and spirits, various colors of glass bottle will offer different benefits. Use clear glass flask bottles for liquors, including scotch or whiskey. Blue, green, and amber bottles are the most popular options for wine. Glass doesn’t leech chemicals, so it also helps preserve the flavor of certain liquors. With the right closure it also prevents air and moisture from making beers and other malt beverages skunky.
With the right closures, glass bottles can be air-tight and leak-resistant. Push and turn screw caps with linings not only preserve chemical composition of medication and other pharmaceutical supplies, they help keep children from accessing contents. Tamper-evident screw caps are efficient closures for glass beverage bottles, but their primary purpose is to identify whether the product has been compromised. Using the right glass bottles with lids, like manufactured child-resistant caps, help prevent accidental topical or oral contact with potentially harmful products.
Although packaging supply companies check inventory before it’s shipped, it is vital to inspect all glass bottles before packaging. Recycled glass bottles that have cracks, chips, or any defect might prevent a tight seal. Paying attention to the quality of your glass bottles, and ordering from experienced vendors like Berlin Packaging can help protect your products and consumers.
