The glass bottle is also a traditional beverage packaging container, and the material is a historical packaging material. With many kinds of packaging materials flooding into the market, glass containers occupy an important position in beverage packaging, which is inseparable from other packaging characteristics that cannot be replaced by packaging materials.

Glass bottles are generally divided into plain white material, high white material, crystal white material. We are producing all kinds of glass bottles all over the world.

High-White Material Glass Bottles Feature:

The glass is white color,High transparency, few magazines, and high purity.


Glass Packing Advantages


The main characteristics of glass packaging containers are: non-toxic, tasteless; Transparentbeautifulgood barrierairtightabundant and common raw materialslow price and can be used repeatedly. It has the advantages of heat resistancepressure resistance and cleaning resistance. It can be sterilized at high temperature and stored at low temperature. Because of its many advantages, it has become the preferred packaging material for water, beer, fruit juice, tea and many other beverages.

Technological process

The glass bottle production process mainly includes:

① raw material pre-processing. Crush the massive raw materials (quartz sand, soda ash, limestone, feldspar, etc.), dry the wet raw materials, and remove the iron from the iron containing raw materials to ensure the glass quality.

② Batch preparation.

③ Melting. The glass batch is heated at high temperature (1550~1600 ° C) in the tank furnace or tank furnace to form uniform, bubble free liquid glass that meets the forming requirements.

④ Forming. Put the liquid glass into the mold to make the glass products with the required shape, such as flat plates, various utensils, etc.

⑤ Heat treatment. Through annealing, quenching and other processes, the stress, phase separation or crystallization in the glass can be eliminated or generated, and the structural state of the glass can be changed.

Product Advantages

Glass packaging materials and containers have many advantages:

1. Glass materials have good barrier performance,which can well prevent

oxygen and other gases from invading the contents, and prevent the volatile

components of the contents from volatilizing into the atmosphere;

2. The glass bottle can be used repeatedly to reduce the packaging cost;

3. Glass can easily change color and transparency;

4. The glass bottle is safe and hygienic, with good corrosion  resistance and

acid resistance, and is suitable for the packaging of acidic substances

(such as vegetable juice drinks);

5. In addition, because glass bottles are suitable for the production of

automatic filling production lines, the development of domestic glass bottle automatic filling technology and equipment is also relatively mature. Using glass bottles to package fruit and vegetable juice drinks has certain production advantages in China.

Production Process

First of all, the mold shall be designed, determined and manufactured. The glass raw material is quartz sand as the main raw material, and other auxiliary materials are dissolved into liquid at high temperature, and then injected into the mold, cooled, notched and tempered to form a glass bottle. Glass bottles generally have rigid marks, which are also made of mold shapes. According to the manufacturing methods, the molding of glass bottles can be divided into three types: manual blowing, mechanical blowing and extrusion molding. Glass bottles can be divided into the following types according to their composition: sodium glass, lead glass and borosilicate glass.


The main raw materials of glass bottles are natural ore, quartz stone, caustic soda, limestone, etc. The glass bottle has high transparency and corrosion resistance, and will not change the material properties in contact with most chemicals. The utility model has the advantages of simple manufacturing process, free and changeable shape, large hardness, heat resistance, cleanness, easy cleaning, and can be used repeatedly. As a packaging material, glass bottles are mainly used for food, oil, wine, beverages, condiments, cosmetics, liquid chemical products, etc., and are widely used. However, glass bottles also have some disadvantages, such as heavy weight, high transportation and storage costs, and poor impact resistance.


Characteristics and types of glass bottles: glass bottles are the main packaging containers for food, medicine and chemical industry. They have good chemical stability; It is easy to seal, with good air tightness and transparency, and the contents can be observed from the outside; Good storage performance; The surface is bright and clean, convenient for disinfection and sterilization; Beautiful appearance and colorful decoration; It has certain mechanical strength and can withstand the pressure in the bottle and the external force during transportation; It has the advantages of wide distribution of raw materials and low price. Its disadvantages are large mass (large ratio of mass to capacity), brittleness and fragility. However, with the new technology of thin-wall lightweight and physical-chemical tempering, these shortcomings have been significantly improved, so the output of glass bottles can increase year by year under the fierce competition with plastics, iron cans and cans.


There are many kinds of glass bottles, from small bottles with a capacity of 1ml to large bottles with a capacity of more than ten liters, from round, square, to special-shaped and handled bottles, from colorless and transparent amber, green, blue, black shading bottles and other glass bottles. In terms of manufacturing process, glass bottles are generally divided into two categories: Moulded bottles (using moulded bottles) and tube bottles (using glass tube bottles). Moulded bottles are divided into two types: large mouth bottles (with a diameter of more than 30mm) and small mouth bottles. The former is used to hold powder, block and paste like articles, while the latter is used to hold liquid. According to the form of bottle mouth, it can be divided into cork bottle mouth, screw bottle mouth, cap bottle mouth, rolling bottle mouth, frosting bottle mouth, etc. According to the use situation, it can be divided into "primary bottles" that are discarded once and "recycled bottles" that are reused many times. According to the classification of contents, it can be divided into wine bottle, beverage bottle, oil bottle, can head bottle, acid bottle, medicine bottle, reagent bottle, infusion bottle, cosmetic bottle, etc.

The recycling amount of glass bottles is increasing every year, but the amount of recycling is huge and inestimable. According to the Glass Packaging Association, the energy saved by recycling a glass bottle can make a 100 watt bulb light up for about 4 hours, a computer run for 30 minutes and watch 20 minutes of TV programs. Therefore, recycling glass is of great significance.

Glass bottle recycling can save energy, reduce the garbage capacity in the landfill, and provide more raw materials for other products, including glass bottles.
