There is more to contract bottling than you may be aware of, and this is particularly true in the chemical industry. Just pouring chemicals into bottles that look slick and shiny is not sufficient; it’s vital to take into account the chemical’s reactivity, the material of the bottle and the method of filling. We put together this contract bottling video to explain more.

In the video, ReAgent’s Managing Director, Rich Hudson explains what contract bottling is and how we approach it at ReAgent. There are also clips of some of the production team at ReAgent in the process of a contract bottling job.

We can package chemicals into all sorts of different containers; sachets, ampoules, IBC’s and more. When it comes to bottling, we offer a range of materials including HDPE, glass, metal and other composite materials.

The material partly depends on your preferences about how you want to display your product. As long as it is compatible with the chemicals inside, we can work with you to choose the best option. We have the knowledge to advise on the safest and most durable type of bottle for your needs, whilst also taking into account cost-effectiveness and aesthetics.

We offer filling techniques such as gravity-fed filling, pump-fed filling, and semi- and fully-automatic filling. You can see some of our filling machines in action in the contract bottling video.

ReAgent is accredited to ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 Quality and Environmental Standards. All of the labels on our bottles adhere to all legal safety requirements, which is one less thing for you to worry about. We can use ReAgent’s own labels on your products, or work with you to use your own label design. Our labels are completely customisable so can be unique to each customer; just let us know what you need.

Get in touch with us to discuss your contract bottling and labelling needs, and we can provide more information. We’re enjoying making videos about our services and are regularly adding new ones, so feel free to check out ReAgent’s YouTube channel for all our other videos!
