Theproduct is packed in a glass bottle. Glass is the predominantmaterial in alcohol packaging because it does not producecontaminants and it is reusable. Besides, a light material that iswidely available. Glass is manufactured through exposing combinationof limestone and soda ash at high temperature. In my view, glass isa preferred material alcohol packaging because it can be recycledseveral times without compromise of purity or quality. Lastly, glassis both impermeable and nonporous. As such, the contents cannot reactwith the material so it does not alter the taste.
Theproduct is packed in a metal can. Plastic is predominates is the mostpopular canning product for cheap products while glass remains theprimary canning material for high end products in the modern world.Plastic is preferred to glass in the food canning industry because itis recyclable and affordable. The varieties used for storing foodsare taken through advanced technologies to prevent taste change thatresults from interaction of the material with foods. However, steelcan is suitable for food canning because it can withstand higherpressure than plastic containers. In addition, it is resistant torust.
Thebeverage is packed in aluminum cans. The most popular packagingmaterial for soft drinks is glass bottles. Aluminum cans aremanufactured from naturally occurring mineral called bauxite.Nevertheless, glass is unsuitable for soft drink canning because itis bulkier than aluminum. Besides, aluminum offers an efficient longterm storage method as it keeps moisture, light and oxygen amongother contaminants away from the beverage.
Metalized Film （乐事薯片）
Theproduct is packed in a polymer bag that is covered with a smallaluminum film or any other suitable metal layer. The polymer is SPIcode 7. The material is suitable for packaging because it isaffordable and light weight, therefore, decreases the final price ofa product.
Thepackage is primarily made from a paper. The material is widely usedin the packaging of cereals and non-liquid material such as sugars. The package is beneficial in sugar packaging because it is light,affordable and does not alter the taste of the product.
Thepack is mainly constructed using specially thickened ordinary paperto make it tough. The bag is mainly used in the packaging ofprocessed cereals such as rice crisps. The material is suited for thepurpose because it is light weight, strong and available in diversegrades to suit distinct users.
Thepack is made from a three layer pleated paper to make it strong. Itis mostly used to make pizza delivery, shipping and retail boxes. Thepack is suitable for transportation of goods because it is lightweight, environmental friendly and it is manufactured from harmlessmaterial. Additionally, it can also be recycled.
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) (塑料桶装牛奶）
HDPEis a petroleum by-product and is ranked at SPI2.It is mainly used in the packaging of solvents such as acids andbleaches. In my view, the material is suitable for the job because itis resistant to corrosion so it cannot react with the storedcontents. Besides, it is recyclable and resistant to damage.
PPis a thermoplastic, SPI code 5 polymer with a wide variety ofapplications, including, textiles, labeling and packaging. It ismainly used to pack solvent and corrosive materials such as oils andacids. The material is suitable for the application since it isresistant to diverse acids, bases and chemical solvents.
Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) （塑料瓶装沙拉酱）
PETis classified as SPI code 1 resin. It is a popular polymer resinfrom the polyester category. It is frequently applied in theproduction of glass fiber, containers for packing liquids andclothing fibers. Nonetheless, it is mostly used in the packaging ofliquid food material because it is highly resistant to corrosiontherefore, it cannot introduce foreign toxic contents. Besides, it issuitable for packing food contents since the food coloring thatattracts consumers is visible through the transparent container.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
PVCis a code 3 resin derived from petroleum byproducts. It commonly usedin the packaging of liquids such as water, alcohol and juice forhuman consumption. The material is suited for package of liquid foodproductsbecause it does not dissolve to most of the commonsolvents. Besides, it is a tough material that resists fast wear andtear, therefore, can be reused.
Composite Can （桶装薯条）
Acomposite can’s body is manufactured using tough paper while itsends is made of a stainless metal. It is mostly used in the packageof portable fast foods such as fries. In my view, the can isconvenient for food storage because it enhances the shelf life ofprocessed foods, protects the aroma and keeps of potential foodcontaminants such as air and moisture as it is tightly sealed.
A Food product packaged in a crimped end collapsible metal squeeze Tube (牙膏管状酱料)
Thisis a circular and hollow pack manufactured using metallic materialfor packing thick solvents such as tooth paste, adhesive, caulkingand ointment. The metal is squeezable such that one can extract thecontent through pressing it from one end. The tube is suitable forstoring food products because its interior layer is made of eitheraluminum or stainless steel, which is necessary to prevent reactionof the food content with foreign materials.
A Non-Food product packaged in a crimped end collapsible plastic squeeze Tube （牙膏)
Thisis a squeezable plastic tube mainly used to pack dense solvents suchas tooth pastes. The plastic is resistant to the liquid and externalelements, while it maintains malleability such that it is easy topress out its content. Consequently, the plastic squeeze tube issuitable for tooth paste package because it makes it possible to drawspecific amount of paste at a go.
A Food product packaged in an Aerosol (not a spray pump)
Theaerosol spray contains food color that is compressed and stored inmist form. As such, the user presses a nozzle at the top of thecontainer in order to produce a fine spray. The can is mainlymanufactured using steel because can withstand the high pressureneeded for aerosol products. Besides, steel does not react with theproducts used in the manufacturing of color mist.
A Non-Food product packaged in an Aerosol (not a spray pump)
Aerosolpacks contain highly compressed liquefied content that is trapped ina metallic contain, often cylindrical and with a valve. When the serpresses the valve, the content is released at a high pressure. Thecontainer above contains shampoo that the user needs to press thenozzle with the valve in order to extract the solvent. A metalliccontainer is suitable for storing the aerosol because it can sustainthe high pressure necessary for aerosol products. In addition, it isairtight so it prevents contamination of the product by air andmoisture.
A Primary package with a Child Resistant (CR) packaging feature *additional description required （瓶子需按压打开 there is a packaging feature at the top of the goods, need to press it to open）
Packageswith Child Resistant (CR) featuresare often made from hardened plastic material. The containers oftencontain harmful material that can poison a child. As such, thecontainer is designed with a special valve that requires beingpressed downwards and then coiled in order to remove the cap. Theplastic material is suitable for the production of the material sinceit can withstand high pressure it is airtight and does not reactwith the content.Besides, it can be recycled severally withoutlosing its initial quality.
A Non-Drug primary package with a Tamper Evident (TE) packaging feature *additional descriptions required （瓶口需拆塑料纸）paper at the top of the drink
TEpackaging involves covering bottles with a layer of paper at the topso that one cannot access the content of the bottle unnoticeably. Theseal is mainly used with soft drinks packed in plastic and glassbottles. The seal contains a stopper that one has to break whenopening. In addition, others have a paper covering the seal tat alsoneeds to be broken if one has to open the container. The TE packagefeature is important for all edible products as it prevents maliciouspeople from introducing contaminants in packed foods or beverages. Inmany cases, the tamper paper is made of an aluminum foil which iseasy to tear apart, but it cannot be reattached. A commonapplication of the packaging material is used on drinks to preventmalicious people from tampering with the beverage before reselling itto unsuspecting clients.
