Bottles and glasses made of moulded glass

Our moulded glass product lines cover all the pharmaceutically relevant glass categories using borosilicate glass of type I and soda-silica glass of types II and III. In addition to our products made of amber and clear glass, we also produce coloured pharma glass and opaque opal glass. Our product range includes all the common mouth shapes in capacities from 2 to 4,000 ml and we can print or acid-etch our glass products on request. Besides our standard products we also develop custom glass packaging.

Type II glass for parenteral applications

Type II glass is subject to a special surface treatment process known as interior hardening and tempering that makes its surface less prone to leaching caused by alkaline solutions. It is the best option for most parenteral drugs. For many years now, Gerresheimer has produced pharmaceutical bottles made from type II glass for drugs administered parenterally by injection or infusion. After overhauling and upgrading its clear-glass furnace in Essen, two new production lines were opened that will mainly be used to make type II glass and link directly to the newly expanded cleanroom. As a Center of Excellence for type II glass for the whole of the Gerresheimer Group, the site will focus on further increasing its capacity and expertise, supplemented by sizable investment in state-of-the-art self-learning testing lines, among other things.

Tubular glass vials

Our tubular vials product range includes clear and amber vials in glass types I, II and III from 0.6 to 100 ml. We produce different designs, with or without blowback, according to industry standards or to individual specifications.

Gx® Elite Glass Vials

Gerresheimer Glass Vials

The Gx Elite vials are the result of a careful product development process spanning several years. The highly shatter-resistant vials are extremely durable and free of cosmetic defects. They also boast an incredibly robust structure, while their resistance to delamination protects the drug inside. Simple handling and a range of packaging options ensure that Gx Elite vials can be supplied for end-to-end use on various filling lines. This cuts costs while improving quality, as countless past and ongoing tests by notable customers have shown. 

Gx Elite vials are a clear step up from standard products, performing significantly better in hydrostatic and side impact tests.
