Analysis of Glass Packing Materials in Packing Design


Article Preview

In this modern time with rapidly developing science and technology, packing materials have taken an important role in packing design, and glass packing container takes a huger proportion all the time. Glass’s main raw materials include quartz sand, sodium carbonate, feldspar and limestone and so on. At times, a little bit clarifier, colorant, or opacifier will be blended into the glass. With the procedures of blending, melting, clarifying and homogenizing, the glass will be processed successfully after annealing treatment. Glass packing materials’ workmanship is simple with various forms, and they are apt to clean whilst can be used repeatedly. In modern packing design, glass packing materials have a higher utilization rate, so they have become a kind of indispensable packing materials.
