"The maturity of various processing technologies has allowed polymer materials to be applied to more and more fields. Veterinary medicine plastic bottles are special packaging bottles for veterinary medicines. In fact, most of the original bottles are made of glass. Plastic bottles have only been used in recent years. It has been widely used. So, what are the advantages of veterinary drug plastic bottles over glass bottles?
1. Material performance: The glass material has high transparency and high chemical stability, but its tensile strength is much lower than the compressive strength. It is a typical brittle material and has poor thermal stability. It is easy to burst when extremely cold and extremely hot. Veterinary drug plastic bottles are mostly made of polyethylene, polypropylene, polyester and other materials. This kind of chemical resistance, heat resistance, electrical insulation, high-strength mechanical properties and good high wear-resistant processing properties, and non-toxic Odorless, light weight, better than glass in terms of performance.
2. Production cost: The packaging of veterinary drugs has high requirements for sterility. The glass material needs to go through complicated processes such as cleaning, drying and sterilization, while the plastic material can be sterilized directly without cleaning, which has a high degree of automation and avoids damage to the cleaning equipment. The packaging produces pollution, which affects the efficacy of the medicine.
3. Transportation cost: The glass material is heavy and fragile, and the transportation cost is high, while the plastic material has good impact resistance, light weight, and relatively low transportation cost, which can save part of the transportation cost for pharmaceutical companies.
In summary, veterinary drug plastic bottles have certain advantages over glass bottles in terms of material properties, production costs, and transportation costs. Pharmaceutical companies also prefer plastic bottles when choosing veterinary drug packaging. "
