Glass bottles are manufactured by melting sand and blowing the molten viscous material into required shape using a mould and then cooled. The process may looks simple, but multiple technologies are used to get a defect-free glass bottle. The various steps involved in glass bottle manufacturing are – Raw material preparation, batching process, melting at 1450 degrees and refining, cooling and conditioning of the glass, forming of the glass bottles in moulds/dies, hot end coating to seal micro checks and improving strength, annealing or removing the thermal stress, cold end coating to prevent rubbing and scratch marks, inspection and SQC, packing and then warehousing/ dispatch. All the bottles are designs are customised based on its application.
Glass, a remarkable material renowned for its environmental sustainability, embraces a 100% recyclable nature, creating a profound impact on our planet’s ecological balance. Unlike other materials, glass can be recycled endlessly without any loss in quality or purity, making it an invaluable asset in the pursuit of a greener and cleaner world.
Cullet, the crushed and processed glass ready for remelting, forms the foundation of a circular economy, ensuring that glass resources are efficiently reused, lessening our dependency on raw materials, and minimizing environmental strain.
