As a silicate inorganic material, glass has relatively stable performance, clean and transparent, and is particularly suitable for packaging, storage and quality preservation of medicines. 

At the same time, the price of glass is relatively cheap compared to other materials. In recent years, with the rapid development of the pharmaceutical industry, my country's pharmaceutical glass industry and products have been developed and improved by leaps and bounds, and have become the main packaging material in the field of pharmaceutical packaging. Glass packaging materials are widely used in injections, powder injections, Freeze dryers, biological products, blood products, oral liquids, health products, etc., glass bottles are widely used in various pharmaceutical packaging.

In my country's glass packaging technology textbooks, various types of glass are divided into eleven categories. Medical glass bottles belong to the category of bottle glass according to their manufacturing process engineering, but belong to the category of instrument glass according to their performance and use. Glass bottle my country's traditional beverage packaging container, glass is also a kind of packaging material with a long history. With many packaging materials pouring into the market, glass containers still occupy an important position in beverage packaging, which is inseparable from its packaging characteristics that other packaging materials cannot replace. Because medicines are special commodities, the chemical composition, performance and quality requirements of various medicinal glass products as their packaging containers are better than ordinary glass bottles and jars

For a long time, the packaging of injections in my country has been dominated by low borosilicate glass containers. The use of low borosilicate glass containers with low water resistance to fill acidic and alkaline liquids is likely to cause visible foreign objects such as peeling, white spots, etc., of the medicine within the validity period. As an inseparable part of medicines, pharmaceutical packaging materials are closely related to the development of the pharmaceutical industry.

Because of the weight and fragility of medicinal glass bottles, a wide range of medicinal glass bottles are resisted by the market. However, in the past few years, with the AA phenol incident of plastic (structure: synthetic resin, plasticizer, stabilizer, colorant) milk bottles, and the plastic plasticizer incident, medicinal glass bottles have returned to market status. 


The glass bottle has the following competitive advantages: it has good chemical stability, will not release toxic substances due to the increase in temperature, and pollute the contents of the bottle; the glass bottle has high hardness and will not be deformed by squeezing, otherwise the contents will not be deformed. Squeezing is also inevitable; consumers are more assured when using glass bottles to hold medicines. Glass bottles have thousands of years of history, and their safety has been widely recognized. The products are safer and easy to sterilize; the shape can be changeable and easy to decorate. , The costumed products are high-end, which promotes sales.
