New Pages

It’s not often that we have new web pages. So I’m happy to write this post on a whole series of new pages devoted to packing instructions for our industrial aluminum bottles. It’s not the most exciting topic.  No luminous, glow-in-the-dark aluminum bottles.  No artsy designs using big name fashion designers. But it’s an important topic […] at the 2012 World Perfumery Congress

Aluminum bottles have long been recognized as superior packaging for preserving the volatile and expensive essences found in the most expensive perfumes.  We should know.  Our aluminum bottles are used to store those expensive essential oils used as primary ingredients […]

Dark glass such as amber or cobalt helps to keep out deteriorating sunlight. . . . Some vendors […]

Aluminum Industrial Bottle Type 4 – For Viscous Products

Here’s how my online dictionary defines viscous: vis·cous adj ˈvis-kəs : having or characterized by viscosity <viscous […]

Industrial Aluminum Bottle – Weight Advantages

Since I’m in the business, I often take for granted the advantages of using industrial aluminum bottles vs. other packaging alternatives. One of the most basic and overlooked advantages is physical weight. I took four 1-gallon bottles and weighed them. Here are the results: Glass : 2.95lbs Tin : 0.97lbs Aluminum : 0.64lbs Plastic HDPE […]

Interest is coming from backpackers, motorcyclists, campers and even some survivalists. No fancy artwork or designs needed for these bottles. Just safety, low weight, portability and durability. So you can expect to see these aluminum […]
