    1. They are the best divided bottles that
    I’ve ever tried. All the bottle caps fit together perfectly and the press caps are in excellent workmanship.

Advantage and disadvantage of glass

 

Glass is a material with a very long history. The manufacturing of glass finds its roots in ancient Egypt, back in the II millennium B.C. Its use as a container for liquids started and expanded rather rapidly around first century A.C. thanks to innovations in blowing techniques carried out by craftsmen in the Roman Empire. Glass has always been used in the past centuries as a container for preservation purposes, for demonstrating and storing food, beverages and items without altering their taste, flavour, aroma, perfume and colour.

Glass is obtained by fusion at a temperature of at least 1200°C in special pit furnaces covered with special heat-resistant materials, of silicate sand with sodium carbonates and calcium. These materials are first transformed into oxides and then through fusion and after cooling, into a viscous liquid. The container is created from this liquid, using two methods: blow-blow and press-blow.

Both methods use a series of shape and finish moulds to obtain the shape of the object or container. Bottles are obtained preferably with the blow-blow method, as a drop of melted glass is left to drop into the shape mould. The first blow will create an uneven shape that will create the finished bottle once transferred into the finish mould and submitted to a second blowing.

Whereas in the 70’s and 80’s glass returnable containers were common, nowadays the majority of bottles produced are one-way. In the first case the bottles used were re-transported to the factory and were subjected to a very harsh washing treatment with bottle washers - with significant costs before being re-filled; in the second instance, a simple rinse is performed on the new bottle and used bottles may be recycled into new ones.

Among the advantages of glass in the beverage market, recycling and reuse of returnable containers must be taken into account, even though this latter feature is strongly dependent on the type of product and consumer and distributor requirements. From a physical point of view, glass constitutes a good barrier for oxygen and carbon dioxide. Disadvantages include its fragility, its weight and the cost of the one-way bottles.

Glass is the natural choice for clean, pure taste. It’s been around long before we were, and can be recycled endlessly after we’re gone. There’s never a fear of chemical contamination. Our handcrafted bottles sparkle with water in them; they’re beautiful. And the best part is we’re not adding plastics to our landfills and oceans. You’ll save money by refilling at the tap.
