    • Glass is the only packaging material rated “GRAS” by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
    • maintains the purity of food and beverages
    • preserves a product’s taste or flavor
    • - No other packaging material matches the shelf impact of glass.
    • maintains the integrity or healthiness of foods and beverages
    • Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly with no loss in quality or purity.
    • -Recycling glass reduces consumption of raw materials, extends the life of plant equipment, such as furnaces, and saves energy
    • container of choice for processing high moisture foods
    • withstands exposure to acid food for an extended period of time
    • For Pasteurized foods- glass withstands the temperature and provides needed protection
  • 3.
    • -analyzing each new shipment of raw materials
    • -monitor certain easily measured physical properties of the glass
    • Eg. a.Density b.Softening Point

      • Silica
      • An Alkali Network Stabilizers
      • -soda (Na 2 O)
      • or Potash (finer glass)
      • Limestone
      • Cullet (waste glass)
    Na 2 O - CaO - Al 2 O 3 - SiO 2 Glass
  • 6. Glass Added Substance-Oxides Use Example Lead -Brilliance -Weight Boron -Thermal & Electrical Resistance Barium Refractive Index Cerium Absorb IR
  • 7. Glass Added Substance-Oxides Use Example Metallic Oxides Add color Manganese De-colorization

    • Because glass is chemically inert , it is the consumer's perfect protection for food and beverages.
    • Glass is one of the most sustainable packaging materials on earth, taking into consideration all carbon footprint factors .
    • Glass is true "cradle-to-cradle" packaging - meaning it can be recycled infinitely to be re-made into bottles, jars or containers that are equally pure as the original. The recycled product is so pure that it can again touch food or beverages.
    • Glass' impervious nature also makes it difficult to tamper with the package contents
    • protects delicate flavors and defend against oxidation
    • Increased visibility and shelf impact
    • Ability to act as decoration
    • Flexibility in size, shape, and closure
  • 11.
    • Marketers Rely on Glass Packaging to Deliver Consumer Convenience
    • Microwavable convenience (for many glass jars)
    • Ease in resealing
    • Flexible design
    • Extreme portability
    • Reusable

    • Lug or Twist Cap
      • Lug is an inward protrusion from the curl of the cap side or skirt
      • Lug caps are secured to the finish by twisting the cap onto the finish which seats the lugs of the cap with the threads of the glass
      • Vacuum maintains the seal
  • 14.
    • Plastisol-Lined Continuous Thread Cap
      • This cap consists of a metal shell with a threaded skirt
      • Cap contains a flowed-in plastisol gasket and is applied by screwing the closure onto the glass finish
  • 15.
    • Press On-Twist-Off Cap
      • Gasket is molded Plastisol that covers the sealing area that extends from the top down the side
  • 16.
    • Body of Glass Package:
      • Largest portion of the glass container
      • Lies between the Finish and the Bottom of the package
      • Body can be in different shapes and sizes
    • Bottom of Glass Package
      • Bottom has the bearing surface or the portion of container upon which it rests
      • Bottom or bearing surface may have special configuration (Stacking feature) designed to provide a degree of interlocking
  • 17.
    • Two properties of design:
    • Significance
    • Utility
    • Glass container manufacturing quality is a direct correlation to the process controls in place and to standards in which these controls are held:
    • Batching
    • Melting
    • Conditioning
    • Forming
    • Packaging
    • Warehouse
    • Shipping
  • 18.
    • Glass Enhancements
    • Applied Ceramic Labeling (ACL) or Silk Screening
    • Heat Transfer Labeling:
    • Shrink Sleeve
    • Pressure Sensitive Labeling
    • Cut and Stack Labeling
    • Glass Surface Treatments
    • Acid Etching Embossing
    • Specialty Colors
    • Debossing
    • Surface Treatment
    • At the hot end of the glass making process, a very thin coating of tin oxide is applied to the containers.
