AR-GLAS® - tubes and rods made of soda-lime glass 

As a worldwide leader in the production of quality tubing glass, SCHOTT supplies soda-lime glass for demanding dimensional and cosmetic applications - AR-GLAS® . This clear glass in Water-Resistance Class 3 is suited for the manufacturing of pharmaceutical primary packaging such as vials or containers for oral medications including pills, tablets and powder.
