Berlin Packaging's selection of vials includes a wide variety of capacities, as well as aesthetic options such as colored plastic or clear glass vials. Add sleeves with catchy logos or graphics to make vials stick out from the competition, and to market your brand. Vials are a versatile package, meeting the needs of many industries, including pharmaceutical, and health and beauty.
Vials can be used to store many different types of goods, such as medicines or chemicals, and they are often used in laboratories and testing facilities. Apart from pharmaceuticals, small vials can be used to store items like chromatography supplies, or liquid samples. Using plastic travel vials to transport cosmetics like creams and lotions is another popular choice, as is filling them with small food items like candy, mints, or gum.
Plastic Versus Glass Vials
Both plastic and glass vials help keep products free of contaminants, and provide unique packaging options. Due to their nonporous nature, glass vials prevent chemicals from leaching into contents. They are also a reusable option and can be easily cleaned or recycled without losing rigidity or strength. For rougher transportation and handling, plastic vials are a sensible option because they are shatter-resistant. They are also lightweight, making them easy to handle, and potentially reducing shipping-related expenses due to freight.
What Types of Vials Are Available?
When considering health and beauty vials, choose from amber round vials that protect light-sensitive products from ultraviolet radiation, or slender white vials with hinged lids that allow for easy closure. Plastic mister vials offer easy dispensing of fragrances or other liquids, while easy-to-use vials with roller caps allow for precise application of deodorants or makeup. Other options like clear glass corked vials keep contents dry and protected from exposure to air. Vials can be paired with various closures, including tamper-evident caps.
