Physical and chemical excellence for reliable containers
UV light blocker
ILLAX® glass offers protection against ultraviolet as well as blue light, which means it can dramatically reduce light degradation of food supplements such as vitamins, and prevent glue from becoming hard during transportation and storage.
The reliability and strength of ILLAX® glass also come from its robust levels of resistance to acids, water and alkalis.
