General

  • MIRON
    Yes, Miron's violetglass is 100% recyclable and we strongly recommend recycling our glass. The other option would be to reuse the glass to store high-quality natural products at home. Miron's violetglass is very robust and is suitable to survive any cycles of dishwashing.
  • MIRON
    If the measure contains a tolerance (mentioned with a "±"), you can expect them to be very precise. In all other cases, the dimensions are approximate.
  • MIRON
    Yes, we do offer custom-designed glass products. Be aware that it does mean that we have to produce a set of moulds and that it requires a minimum order quantity to fill an entire production run. A set of moulds for a custom-designed glass product costs between €15,000 and €25,000. Depending on the production line, it generally requires a MOQ of 20,000 to 200,000 units. If you are interested in a custom-designed product, please contact us. We suggest that you stick to the standard accessories that are available, as customised accessory moulds can be very expensive.

Glass

  • MIRON
    The violet color can be seen best when looking through a single wall of the jar or bottle toward a bright light source. The violet color will be easily visible.
  • MIRON
    Hot-end coating is a protective layer that is sprayed on the glass after it comes out of the oven and is still hot at 600⁰ Celsius. This glazing hardens with the glass and gives it a protective layer that prevents the glass from being scratched easily. This helps during the transport and filling process when the glass could become scratched without hot-end coating.
  • MIRON
    Our glass can be identified by our logo , positioned on the bottom of each vessel. In the case of the wide cosmetic jars, the logo is located in between the threads.
  • MIRON
    The numbers, like 18/400, refer to the size and the finish. Size - When you read about closure size, it is a reference to the diameter. Using a measurement in millimeters, ranging from 8mm to 120mm, closures are sized across the closure beginning and ending with the outermost point of the thread. Finish - Also referred to as the neck finish or thread; the finish refers to the height of the closures in millimeters. The following are common finishes: 400 = minimum of 1 full turn of threads; 410 = minimum of 1.5 full turns of threads; 415 = minimum of 2 full turns of threads; 425 = minimum of 2 full turns of threads on a bead finish; minimum of 1.5 turns on a beadless finish.

Closures

  • MIRON
    Most of our pump and spray caps come with a standard dip tube length that will be too long for most of the bottle sizes. In order for them to fit the bottle selected, they need trimming. If you desire, Miron offers a trimming service on request. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
  • MIRON
    We only sell standard black color accessories. However, we can supply lids and caps in other colors as part of a sufficiently large minimum order. Minimums vary per product, but in general orders of at least 10,000-50,000 units will be required to produce a special color, depending on the product and the supplier. For more specific information, please contact us.
  • MIRON
    The seals that we provide can only be used for dry products in jars. The effects that ingredients in liquid products have on the glue used in the seals mean that these seals cannot be used for any liquid product.
  • MIRON
    Put the seals into the lids with the text portion on the inside of the lid and the white side towards the jar. Place the lid on the jar and tighten the lid. Leave unopened for at least 24 hours and the seal should be applied to the jar perfectly.
  • MIRON
    Other closures should work well with our glass, as we apply the standard industry neck finishes to most of our products. However, we cannot guarantee that the use of a closure from another supplier will match and be leak-free. If you decide to use another supplier, we recommend that the compatibility glass/closure is properly tested.Miron 100% guarantees that all of its own closures/accessories work with the corresponding violetglass items. All Miron's closures are made in Europe and are sourced from top of the art suppliers.

Usage

  • MIRON
    We do not recommend putting liquid products in our apothecary jars. The most common use for our jars is for spices, tea, vitamins, food storage, solid honey etc. Even though the lids do close 99% airtight, there is a risk of leakage with liquid products. It is also very difficult to pour from this type of jar. We do not offer any alternative closures for these apothecary jars.
  • MIRON
    Sometimes the apothecary jars can be a little difficult to open when they are newly delivered. This is easy to solve by tapping the side of the lid with a wooden spoon.
