Bottles are often used for the storage and distribution of chemicals, solvents and other liquids and powders. Bottles are produced in many popular styles, including Boston rounds, packers, and wide and narrow-mouth rounds.
Clear glass bottles provide for maximum visibility of their contents, while amber glass blocks UV rays and is excellent for light-sensitive materials, while plastic-coated glass contains its contents when broken for enough time to properly dispose.
Lab bottles are most often used for chemicals, solvents, and other liquids. Bottles typically have an opening that is smaller in diameter than the rest of the container. Bottles are available in specific shapes, like Boston rounds, packers, square, media, and other specialty styles. Bottles may be made from glass (clear or amber), natural or colored plastics, plastic-coated glass, and sometimes metal.
Choose clear glass or natural plastics for maximum visibility and amber-tinted glass and plastic for light-sensitive materials. Most bottles are sold with attached or separate closures, and can be sterilized, clean, or otherwise processed for specific applications.
