The Demand for Glass Bottle Closures Arose as Markets Expanded Worldwide

A bottle closure is, simply stated, as a device that seals the contents inside of a bottle. It protects the contents from dust, spilling, evaporation, and/or from the atmosphere itself. The finish and closure are interrelated entities of any bottle. The closure must conform to the finish in order to function, and vice versa.

During the early 19th century (approximately) there was only limited demand for glass bottles & jars since most goods were sold in bulk by general stores out of barrels, pottery jugs, wooden boxes, burlap sacks, and the like. Most people also lived off the land and had limited need for glass bottles; they also lacked the resources to pay for such luxuries. Thus, the incentive to develop varying closures was limited as cork sufficed for virtually all of the bottled products of the time.

The use of glass bottles - and the need for varied closures to seal them - arose with an expanding city-based market and even then for just a few types of bottled goods - primarily liquor, wine, and patent medicines - in the early 19th century. As cities and relative affluence spread, the market and demand for bottled goods increased rapidly. At the same time, the need for methods and equipment to preserve different kinds of content in glass containers also increased. With the expansion of these demands came the need for suitable glass bottle closures all of which had to be properly sealed to function effectively.

As of today, aluminum glass bottle closures are in great demand. These closures cater to the diverse needs of several sectors such as pharmaceuticals, beauty products, body care products, packaging industries, FMCG and food & beverages, and various other industries. No foul smell and resistance to reaction with bottle contents have made aluminum glass bottle closures ideal for the packaging industry.
