It is crucial to detect defects while choosing plastic packaging for pharmaceutical products and focus on the highest quality.
FREMONT, CA:-HDPE (high-density polyethylene), LDPE (low-density polyethylene), PP (polypropylene), and PET (polyethylene terephthalate) are some of the most popular forms of plastic used for manufacturing plastic bottles for the pharmaceutical industry.
Every type of plastic bottle has its own set of characteristics and properties that make it suitable for various pharmaceutical products, including tablets, liquids, creams, sprays, and many more. While choosing the right kind of plastic, it's not only about picking the correct material. But it's also about knowing how to detect the various types of defects that can occur during the bottle manufacturing procedure.
Defects in plastic bottles can threaten the product's quality and profitability. Many organizations can help determine how to detect these flaws so that the pharmaceutical sector can prevent issues in the future and keep the business running efficiently.
Uneven Sealing Surface:
The top area where the bottle is sealed is one of the most critical aspects of a packaging system. If the bottle top is manufactured unevenly, it cannot close properly, increasing the risk of product contamination.
Consumers' impressions of the brand will be affected by an uneven seal, and no one will buy a product if the seal is damaged or the bottle top is faulty. Many regions are also focusing on child-resistant packaging for several healthcare, fitness, and lifestyle items.
Raised Mold Seams:
Knowing what ingredients a product incorporates is critical for customers as they use it while making purchasing decisions in today's market. Consumers can't find the information they need to make informed decisions, compare items, or recognize correct dosages if labels are illegible. This damages brand loyalty and several customers will switch to a new product as a result.
More information is necessary on a label while the print size is decreasing. As a result of this trend, it's even more crucial that the labels lie flat on the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical packaging.
Excess Bottom Flash:
Bottles that do not stand straight can create massive issues for the company. Customers will hesitate to purchase or won't if they see the bottles on the retail shelves are tilted, uneven, or falling. It's even worse if the bottles aren't stable enough for customers to keep at home.
Excess bottom flash that isn't removed during the manufacturing process may trigger this problem. Bottles would be unstable and not stand straight if this extra material is not entirely removed.
