Wheaton Plastic Components with Pure Glass Interiors

Aug. 2, 2016

The company’s technology allows for the manufacture of plastic exterior components with complete interior coverage of pure glass.

According to the company, the concept results in packaging products that are lightweight with the break-resistant properties of plastic and the barrier qualities and inert inner surface of pure glass.

Benefits of a pure glass interior include the elimination of compounds from the container contaminating the contents as occasionally occurs with plastic products, while also providing an interior surface with less vapor transmission and higher resistance to solvents. This is combined with the benefit of the plastic exterior protecting the glass from cracking and breakage.
