Square bottles are a versatile packaging option. They are easy to stack or pack directly next to one another to save space during shipping or warehouse storage, which can reduce overhead expenses. With four smooth sides, it's easy to liven up the packaging with multiple information panels or customized labels for marketing your brand.
Types of Plastic Square Bottles
There are many shaped plastic bottles from which to choose. Plastic square bottles offer contour options that are compatible with high-pressure processing (HPP), a method which enhances food safety, and improves shelf life. When considering beverage bottles, include PET plastic decanters that are a good fit for juice, milk, tea, and other chilled beverages. UN-rated leakproof Kautex bottles feature wide mouths for easy filling and are constructed to reduce product waste due to spillage. As plastic is shatter-resistant, these square bottles can withstand rougher handling without incurring damage.
Types of Glass Square Bottles
When considering amber glass bottles for their UV-filtering qualities to protect light-sensitive food and beverages, consider a square version. Smaller-sized bottles, known as Blake or iodine bottles, are made from type III soda lime glass, which is chemically inert. They are a popular choice for packaging lab chemicals or pharmaceuticals. Additional options include Marasca bottles made from Italian glass, and used for storing liquids such as cooking oils, vinegar, or salad dressing. To draw attention to products, package them in eye-catching, square glass art deco bottles, available in blue or clear.
What Kinds of Closures Can Be Used?
Square bottles with caps include bale wire swing top closures that contain plastic stoppers and rubber seals. Prevent product contamination with tamper-evident caps. Fit square-shaped bottles with corks or foam lined caps to protect contents from air exposure, or use textured screw tops for easy gripping, opening, and closing. Plug and screw caps provide square bottles with additional protection from leakage.
