Wide neck jars
As the name suggests, MIRON glass wideneck jars have a "wide opening at the neck". They are ideal packers for the food and natural medicine industry to store high quality products such as supplements, spices, extracts, honey, super foods, powders, teas, coffee and much more. Depending on your product type, volume and the design required, it is possible to choose between four series: Narrow, Standard, Wide and Extra Wide. Among the Saturn series, the volume capacity varies from 50 ml (1 2/3-oz) up to 1 L (33 ¾--oz).
Let’s talk about threads
...But what exactly are threads?
Simply put, threads are the protruding lines curved around the neck of the bottle. They ensure that the matching closure will have a tight fit to protect your natural ingredients from being tampered with or from leakage. The threads size depends on the size of the bottle neck as well as our range of closures. Our bottles and jars as well as the corresponding closures must have matching threads. If in doubt, it is always advisable to contact the sales department.
GPI and GCMI
GPI and GCMI are the US norm of neck finishes and are followed by two numbers written like this: 22/400*. The first number indicates the neck finish diameter and is measured across the outside of the bottles threads. The second number refers to the height and thread style. Meaning the number of threads turns around the neck. Our Saturn 50 ml, for example, features a 45/400 (1 thread turn) neck finish. The Saturn and Carina series are often used for natural healing, cosmetic, or personal health products.
* Please note that if a bottle has an additional ring in the neck, this may affect the choice of matching closure. For more details, please get in touch with your representative.
A special thread differs from the standard threads on the market. This is because some MIRON products are tailored to unique (market) demands that differ from standard packaging shapes/sizes. This means that the choice of corresponding accessories is limited. On the bright side, we offer them all. The lids that fit these special threaded jars are designed to create the perfect fit. Simply match the diameter indicated in the product description with the corresponding Modern or Classic lids to purchase the related items.
At MIRON Violetglass we ensure that our closures always fit the corresponding bottles and jars. However, it can sometimes be a bit of a challenge to find the right glass packaging which complements the needs of your natural ingredients. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have and to become a part of your products journey.
