Glass containers

  • F. A. Paine

Abstract

Glass container manufacturing is a continuous high-speed automatic process. Each year glass container factories in the United Kingdom alone sell about 6000 million bottles and jars, for food (35%), beverages (45%), pharmaceuticals (9%), and toiletries and perfumery (4%). In value these sales constitute about 93% of all types of packaging, some competitive and others not competitive with glass.
