Glass containers for pharmaceutical use
Glass containers for pharmaceutical use are glass articles intended to come into direct contact with pharmaceutical preparations.
The hydrolytic stability of glass containers for pharmaceutical use is expressed by the resistance to the release of soluble mineral substances into water under the prescribed conditions of contact between the inner surface of the container or glass grains and water.
The hydrolytic resistance is evaluated by titrating released alkali. According to their hydrolytic resistance, glass containers are classified as follows:
Neutral glass, a borosilicate glass containing significant amounts of boric oxide. With a high hydrolytic resistance due to the chemical composition of the glass itself. (moulded glass vial, and tubular vial)
Suitable for most preparations whether or not for parenteral use(injection use)
Soda-lime glass with sulfur treatment, with a high hydrolytic resistance resulting from suitable treatment of the surface of glass vial (only moulded glass vial)
Suitable for most acidic and neutral, aqueous preparations whether or not for parenteral use.
Soda-lime glass, with only moderate hydrolytic resistance (only moulded glass vial). Some factories use amber tubing glass container for oral use.
Generally suitable for non-aqueous preparations for parenteral use, for powders for parenteral use(not including freeze-dried preparations), and for preparations not for parenteral use.
