Compared with Plastic Bottles, What Are the Advantages of Glass Bottles?


In many respects, glass bottles are more suitable as product packaging and containers than plastic bottles. Let's talk about the advantages of glass bottles compared to plastic bottles.

 the advantages of glass bottles

Both glass bottles and plastic bottles are very common packaging and containers in our daily lives, and they are very different in terms of characteristics and specific applications. Glass bottles perform better than plastic bottles in many aspects. The followings are the advantages of glass bottles.

1. Low cost

Many people think that the price of glass bottles is more expensive than plastic bottles, but in fact, plastic bottles account for about 20% of the production cost in the product (commodity) price structure, and glass bottles can be considered in the cost calculation of production or recycling. Very low, about 3~5% of the product (commodity) price composition. Therefore, glass bottles are the most economical way to replace plastic bottles.

2. Save resources, reduce pollution and protect the environment

Disposable plastic bottles produce a large amount of white pollution and take a long time to degrade. According to modern scientific research, it takes 470 years for disposable plastic products (bags or bottles) to completely degrade at the fastest, usually as long as 1,000 years, which will have a certain impact and damage on the global environment.

Unlike glass bottles, they can be recycled and reused in normal conditions. They are the most environmentally friendly containers regardless of whether they are damaged or in good condition.

3. Good chemical stability

Glass bottles have good chemical stability and durability, safety and sanitation, good corrosion resistance and acid corrosion resistance. The glass used for food and beverage containers will not leach chemical substances, and the use of glass for beverages other than water (ie sports drinks) will not affect the material or absorb residual taste or odor. Glass bottles are also safe to clean in the dishwasher, and it is easy to see when they are clean enough-plastic or metal containers are not always so clean.

4. Good barrier performance

The glass bottle can prevent oxygen and other gases from attacking the contents, and at the same time, it can prevent the volatile components of the contents from volatilizing into the atmosphere. However, the airtightness of plastic bottles is not an advantage compared with glass bottles.

5. Production advantages

In addition, because glass bottles are suitable for the production of automatic filling production lines, the development of automatic filling technology and equipment for medicinal glass bottles is relatively mature, and the use of glass bottles for packaging fruit and vegetable juice beverages has certain production advantages.
