Laboratory analysis of glass and fiber glass
Your needs : to design glass materials or bottles that are both of high quality and safe
Glass is a material with many different applications, which makes it difficult for manufacturers or subcontractors to analyze and use. Studying the characteristics of flat glass, hollow glass, fiberglass or clear glass allows companies to better control their composition, their durability and their practical use.
As major players in the glass industry you face a variety of challenges relating to the quality of the materials being used, product failures, or even problems with container/contents interactions.
Inspections and chemical analyses before and after marketing will contribute to the quality of the finished product.
