Glass bottles have become an integral part of the pharmaceutical industry

Glass as silicate inorganic materials, relatively stable performance, and smooth transparent, especially suitable for packaging and storage of drugs. At the same time, relative to other materials, glass price is relatively cheap. In recent years, with the rapid development of pharmaceutical industry, medicinal glass industry in our country and the product obtained the rapid development and improving, has become the main packaging materials in the field of pharmaceutical packaging, glass packaging material is widely used in injection, powder injection, the lyophilizer, biological products, blood products, oral liquid, health care products, such as glass bottles are widely used in various kinds of pharmaceutical packaging

China’s glass packaging technology textbooks will be a wide variety of glass into 11 categories, according to its manufacturing process engineering belongs to the bottle glass, but according to its performance and use should belong to the instrument glass. Glass bottle is a traditional beverage packaging container in China, glass is also a very historical packaging material. With the influx of many kinds of packaging materials into the market, glass container still occupies an important position in beverage packaging, which is inseparable from its packaging characteristics that can not be replaced by other packaging materials. As medicine is a special commodity, all kinds of medicinal glass products used as its packaging containers have better chemical composition, performance and quality requirements than ordinary glass bottles. Low borosilicate glass containers have always been the main packaging of injection in China. However, filling acid and alkali liquid with low borosilicate glass container with low water resistance level is easy to lead to visible foreign bodies such as peeling and white spots in the effective period. As an integral part of medicine, pharmaceutical packaging materials are closely related to the development of pharmaceutical industry.

The heavy and fragile nature of the bottles has led to widespread market resistance to medicinal glass bottles. But over the years, with the plastic (structure: synthetic resin, plasticizer, stabilizer, pigment) bottles of AA phenol, plastic plasticizer, medicinal glass bottles from back to market position, medicinal glass has the following competitive advantages: it has good chemical stability, not because of the rise of temperature, releasing toxic substances, and the pollution inside the bottle dressed; Glass bottles of high hardness, not because of extrusion deformation, otherwise the container can not avoid extrusion; The use of glass bottles containing drugs, consumers are more assured, glass bottles thousands of years of history, its safety has been widely recognized, containing products are safer, and easy to disinfect; The shape can be changeable, easy to decorate, dress products show high-grade, promote sales.
