Key facts about glass bottles
Table of Contents
Buy glass bottles
Bottle glass and canning glass are generally considered to be so-called packaging glass or glass packaging. Due to its hollow shape, e.g. as container glass, it is also referred to as hollow glass. Further, glass bottles for the filling industry are also called filling bottles.
Glass bottles are mostly transparent and clear. Due to the absorption of light, in combination with coloring metal components, glass bottles are available in different colors. In addition, the design of glass bottles is playing an increasingly important role and is increasingly contributing to the brand identity of the products.
What are glass bottles made of?
Many glass bottles are soda-lime-silica glasses, which essentially consist of the components quartz sand SiO2 (approx. 72%), soda Na2O (approx. 13%) and lime CaO (approx. 11%). In the case of sensitive beverages and foods, the addition of iron or chromium produces a brown or green coloration, respectively, as light protection.
What different glass bottles are available for purchase?
“Glass” is not a uniform material, but a collective term for a variety of different materials that are called “glass” because of their transparent or translucent properties.
There are different types of glass, such as:
Glasses differ mainly in their chemical composition, production and properties such as transparency, hardness, breaking strength and thermal resistance.
There are also plastic-based materials that visually look like glass, but are made of other materials and have different properties, such as acrylic or polycarbonate.
What is float glass?
Float glass is a term for a special type of glass produced by the so-called float process.
In the float process, molten glass is floated on a melt of tin and lead. This melt has a constant surface tension so that the liquid glass floats on a flat surface and is automatically smoothed out. This results in a very uniform and smooth surface with few inclusions.
Float glass is mainly used in the packaging industry and in the construction industry. It is particularly suitable for the production of transparent packaging, as it has a very uniform and clear surface. It is also often used for the production of window panes and mirrors because of its high transparency and good appearance.
Bottle glass is a term usually used for glass bottles used to package beverages, such as soda, beer, or wine.
Bottle glass is usually made of high quality, durable and light-resistant material, which due to its properties is suitable for packaging liquid products. It is also easy to shape and machine, which makes it suitable for making bottles of various shapes and sizes.
Bottle glass must also be safe and secure and not emit toxic substances when filling and removing the contents. Therefore, bottle glass is often treated with various treatments, such as coating or steaming, to make it more light and acid resistant.
Filling beverages in glass bottles:
Bottling liquids is an important process in many industries, including food and beverage, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Here are some steps followed when bottling liquids:
- Preparation: The bottles should be cleaned and sterilized before filling to ensure that they are hygienic and free from contamination.
- Filling machine: A filling machine is used to fill the liquid into the bottles safely and precisely. There are different types of filling machines suitable for different bottles and liquids.
- Filling: The liquid is filled into the bottles while the filling machine precisely monitors the fill level. Depending on the type of liquid and the bottle, vacuum filling may be required to remove air bubbles from the bottle.
- Closure: After filling, the bottles are sealed to ensure that the contents are kept safe and hygienic. There are different types of caps, such as screw caps, flip caps and screw caps with seal.
- Inspection: After capping, the bottles are inspected to ensure that they are correctly filled and capped. In some cases, additional verification may be required, such as when food or medications are used.
It is important that the bottling of liquids is done hygienically and safely to ensure that the contents are safe and sanitary. In addition, all applicable safety and environmental regulations must be followed.

Buy large and small glass bottles at "KP Glass":
Large and small glass bottles are used for different purposes.
Large glass bottles are often used in the food and beverage industry to store larger quantities of contents. They can also be used in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries to store larger quantities of solvents and reagents. Large glass bottles are usually sturdy and durable and can be used several times before they need to be disposed of.
Small glass bottles are often used for packaging samples, e.g. in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, or for small quantities of beverages. They are usually more compact and handy than large glass bottles and can be easily transported. Small glass bottles can also be used to store jewelry, perfume or other small items.
In both cases, large and small glass bottles must be safe and hygienic and must not release toxic substances into the contents. They must also comply with applicable safety and environmental regulations.
Buy brown glass bottles (amber glass):
Brown glass bottles are mainly used in the food and beverage industry. The brown color of the glass protects the contents from harmful UV radiation, since UV rays are mainly present in the blue part of the visible light spectrum. The brown color also reduces the transparency of the glass, so that light can not penetrate through it and affect the contents.
Brown glass bottles are particularly suitable for food and beverages that are sensitive to light, such as beer, lemonade and other beverages with natural colorants. They are also often used for storing oils, vinegars and other liquids.
It is important to note that brown glass bottles must also comply with current safety and environmental regulations and must not release toxic substances into the contents. Also, care should be taken to ensure that the bottles are hygienic and safe so that the contents are safe and protected
White glass bottles (white glass):
White glass bottles are used in various industries, mainly in cosmetics, pharmaceutical and food industries. The white color of the glass provides contrast to the colored contents and can give an attractive look.
In the cosmetic industry, white glass bottles are often used for packaging perfumes, creams and other beauty products. These bottles are sturdy and durable and provide safe storage for the products.
In the pharmaceutical industry, white glass bottles are often used for packaging tablets and capsules. The white color of the jar provides good visibility and allows to store the tablets and capsules safely and hygienically.
In the food industry, white glass bottles are often used for packaging syrups and syrup syrups. These bottles provide safe storage for products and prevent light from affecting the contents.
As with all glass bottles, white glass bottles must comply with current safety and environmental regulations and not release toxic substances into the contents. Also, make sure that the bottles are hygienic and safe to protect the contents.
Green glass bottles (green glass):
Green glass bottles are mainly used in the food and beverage industry. The green color of the glass provides protection against harmful UV radiation, since UV rays are mainly present in the blue part of the visible light spectrum. The green color also reduces the transparency of the glass, so that light can not penetrate through it and affect the contents.
Green glass bottles are particularly suitable for food and beverages that are sensitive to light, such as beer, lemonade and other beverages with natural colorants. They are also often used for storing oils, vinegars and other liquids.
It is important to note that green glass bottles must also comply with current safety and environmental regulations and must not release toxic substances into the contents. Also, make sure that the bottles are hygienic and safe so that the contents are safe and secure.
Are glass bottles sustainable?
Glass bottles are a popular choice for sustainable packaging solutions due to their recyclability and durability. Here are some of the benefits of glass bottles in terms of sustainability:
- Recyclability: Glass bottles can be recycled endlessly without affecting their quality. This means that they can be used again and again, which helps to reduce waste.
- Durability: Glass bottles have a long life and can be reused often, reducing the need for new bottles.
- No toxins: glass bottles contain no harmful chemicals or toxins that can transfer into the contents, making them a safe choice for food and beverages.
- Energy efficiency: Recycling glass bottles requires less energy than producing new bottles from raw materials.
- Biodegradable: At the end of their life, glass bottles can be biodegraded, which helps reduce waste.
