Tubular Glass Containers

We offer our glass products in three types of glass all of which are pharmaceutical quality.


A general purpose glass suitable for most applications provided that it will not be subjected to thermal shock i.e. heated and rapidly cooled.


Where thermal shock is anticipated, this type of glass offers the ultimate in resistance. Commonly referred to as Pyrex ® this type of glass is widely used in kitchenware. These qualities do however come at a price and borosilicate glass is somewhat more expensive than soda glass.


This glass type offers a compromise between soda and borosilicate both in terms of price and performance. It is also commonly mistakenly referred to as borosilicate. For laboratory uses, neutral glass is now probably the most commonly specified material.

SODA and NEUTRAL glass types are also available in amber as well as clear.

Our machines can process glass diameters from 4mm to 80mm and lengths from 20mm to 1000mm. Round and flat bases, with or without rim.
