Plastic medicine bottles are containers for packaging and storing drugs, also known as plastic medicine boxes. With the development of modern medical industry and the continuous growth of the pharmaceutical industry, plastic medicine bottles have also become an indispensable part. This article will provide a detailed introduction to plastic medicine bottles, including their types, characteristics, applications, and treatments.

 Types of plastic medicine bottles

1. Polyethylene (PE) medicine bottles

Polyethylene is a commonly used material for making medicine bottles. Polyethylene medicine bottles have certain pressure resistance and toughness, are not easily damaged, can be reused, and have excellent moisture resistance, anti-seepage, corrosion resistance and other properties, which can be used for long-term storage of drugs.

2. Polypropylene (PP) medicine bottles

Polypropylene medicine bottles have high heat resistance and low temperature resistance, and can withstand high and low temperatures for long-term storage of drugs. It has the characteristics of moisture-proof, moisture-proof, corrosion-resistant, and non-toxic.

3. Polyester (PET) medicine bottles

Polyester medicine bottles are transparent plastic packaging containers with good oxygen and water vapor isolation properties, which can effectively protect the nutritional content and efficacy of drugs. The surface of PET medicine bottles is smooth, easy to clean, and the texture is very transparent, indicating the storage status of the medicine.


4. Chlorotrifluoroethylene plastic medicine bottles (PCTFE)

The PTFE medicine bottle mentioned upstairs is made of chrootrifluoroethylene plastic medicine bottle, which has excellent chemical stability, moisture-proof, gas resistant, moisturizing properties, and can also be sterilized at high temperatures. Therefore, this material is widely used in the pharmaceutical packaging fields such as advanced drugs, bioengineering, oral preparations, injections, skin patches, spray, eye drops, etc.

The characteristics of plastic medicine bottles

1. Good sealing performance

Plastic medicine bottle products have high material density, stable internal pressure during molding, high temperature resistance, and can withstand corrosion from different chemicals, ensuring that drugs can be stored for a long time.

2. Easy to charge

Plastic medicine bottle products can be filled, capped, and sealed in various ways, and can be combined with automated production lines to achieve efficient production.

3. Environmentally friendly materials

Compared with glass bottles, plastic medicine bottles have certain environmental advantages, are not easily broken, cause less waste, and have a faster degradation rate of products in the environment.


4. Lightweight

Compared to glass bottles, plastic medicine bottles have a lighter weight, which can reduce logistics and transportation costs.

The application of plastic medicine bottles

Plastic medicine bottles are widely used in industries such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and health products. Here are some specific application scenarios.

1. Clinical research on drugs

Clinical research on drugs usually requires a series of trials, including toxicity and efficacy tests. During this process, plastic medicine bottles can be used for storing and transporting drugs.

2. Biomedical

Biomedical typically involves high-risk biological products such as formulations, viruses, bacteria, etc. In this upstream and downstream manufacturing process, plastic medicine bottles are crucial storage and transportation containers.

3. Oral preparations

Oral preparations, including capsules and tablets, require bottle loading and transportation. Plastic medicine bottles play a crucial role in the packaging and storage of oral formulations due to their moisture-proof, non-toxic, and corrosion-resistant properties.

4. Injections, skin patches, spray, eye drops, liquid oral preparations, etc

These clinical applications can be achieved through different types of plastic medication bottles.


Treatment of plastic medicine bottles

After the service life of plastic medicine bottles ends, they can be recycled and reused, or processed through pyrolysis. This processing method will heat the plastic medicine bottle to high temperature and decompose it, thereby converting it into other forms of chemicals.

However, when handling plastic medicine bottles, we need to pay attention to the following points:

1. The raw materials in plastic medicine bottles may remain inside, which may have an impact on the environment and humans. Therefore, we need to thoroughly wash the plastic medicine bottles to ensure that they do not have any impact on the environment and human health.

When handling plastic medicine bottles, it is advisable to use environmentally friendly methods as much as possible to reduce risks to people and the environment.

3. Plastic medicine bottles can reduce their impact on the environment and demand for new materials through recycling and reuse.

Summary: Plastic medicine bottles are one of the important links in modern medical industry. It is crucial for manufacturers and consumers to understand the characteristics and application scenarios of various plastic medicine bottles. Given the impact of plastic medicine bottles on the environment and human health, we need to adopt environmentally friendly and sustainable methods for disposal.
