Conventional glass vials typically have a high coefficient of friction, which can reduce vial flow and can lead to interventions, vial jams, tip-overs, and glass breakage. These issues can create disruptions and increase manufacturing costs for pharmaceutical fill and finish opperations.
Corning Velocity® Vials, borosilicate vials externally coated with Corning’s proprietary technology, can help to eliminate bottlenecks and speed the delivery of life-saving treatments. Velocity Vials’ patented uniform coating can improve manufacturing efficiency, speed, and throughput, leading to lower packaging production costs.
High manufacturing throughput means more vials get where they need to go
Velocity Vials are engineered to deliver better economics and better quality compared with traditional borosilicate packaging. Compared to traditional vials, the uniform protective coating on Velocity Vials can increase filling line efficiency by 20% to 50%, enable up to a 96% reduction in glass particulates, and when subjected to simulated filling line damage exhibited a 3x reduction in crack generation.
