How German drinks are packaged

German beer is world-famous. It is almost a household name in China that Germans can drink beer. In fact, in addition to beer, the sales of various beverages in Germany are also large. Whether at home or out of the door, Germans will prepare many drinks. At weekends, I go to the supermarket to buy daily necessities. All the drinks are moved home in boxes and bundles, which should be enough for at least one week; People who don't drink when they go to a restaurant must order a drink. There are also a variety of drinks here. The raw materials are composed of various fruits or their mixtures. Of course, there is no lack of drinks like cola. Since there are so many drinks, their packaging must be different. Let's take a look at how German drinks are packaged

from the perspective of German beverage packaging materials, they are mainly divided into three categories, namely, paper plastic composite materials, plastics and glass, while the beverage packaging containers are mainly paper plastic boxes, plastic bottles and glass bottles

the outer surface of the paper plastic composite beverage packaging box in Germany is a layer of paperboard, and the inside is a layer of aluminum foil. Of course, the aluminum foil is first compounded with other plastic films, and then compounded with cardboard. Cardboard has its own advantages: light weight, certain strength, easy to print and process, and the formed carton is conducive to collective packaging and stacking storage; The film composed of aluminum foil and plastic has good permeability barrier performance, which can not only prevent the liquid from seeping out, but also ensure the quality and freshness of beverages. At the same time, the plastic film also has good heat sealing performance. In fact, the sealing and forming of the paper plastic box is realized by it. Moreover, it has the advantages of short time and fast speed, and is suitable for processing in the flow production line. The paper plastic boxes are beautifully printed, and most of them are polished. The color pattern and title let people know what kind of beverage is inside at a glance. In addition to indicating the trademark and manufacturer, enterprises usually mark the proportion of various components of the beverage in a small table in detail, which is practical and realistic, and has been tested by relevant departments. In addition, the shelf life of the beverage is usually printed on the top of the box, and the words "see the top of the carton for the service life" are also printed on the bottom right of the front of the box. The side of the beverage box is printed with instructions such as "it can be refrigerated for three days after opening". It can be said that almost all fruit drinks use this kind of packaging

it is also worth explaining the opening and resealing of the beverage box. In the past, we often saw that the top of the beverage box was completely sealed after filling, but an indentation line was processed on a triangle after folding and bonding, and the words "tear or cut from now on" were noted. This opening method brings a lot of inconvenience to consumers, and it can not be sealed after opening, which affects the quality and storage life of the beverage when it is re drunk. Now there are several new beverage box sealing openings in the German market. One is to open a small opening at the top corner of the beverage box, and then stick the processed square plastic cover. The cover is composed of two parts, one is an adhesive fixed part, and the other is a movable part. The two parts are connected together by a small rotating shaft in the middle. The movable part can rotate large and is widely used for about 90 degrees. The movable part opens when it turns down at the opening and closes when it turns up. It is designed with small parts for positioning and clamping. The other is to stick a square plastic cover composed of a fixed part and a movable part at the opening on the top of the beverage box. One end of the two parts has been processed and connected together, and the other end can be opened and closed. The opening of the beverage box is very particular. Unlike the first method, it is composed of two small openings: a conical hole and a small circular hole. The conical hole can pour out the beverage, and the small circular hole can enter the air to facilitate the pouring out of the beverage. The two holes are sealed by a small piece of composite aluminum foil, which not only ensures the sealing effect, but also can timely find out whether the beverage box has been opened. The third method is to stick a plastic circular cover with a screw at the opening of the beverage box. The lower part of the circular cover is bonded and fixed on the carton, and the upper part is usually composed of two parts, one is the rotating cover, the other is a small part stuck to the fixed part, which is connected with the screw cover through several thin plastic wires. If the screw cover is opened, the thin plastic wires will break, so it is immediately known that the beverage box has been opened

in Germany, in addition to the common 1L and 1.5L capacity of paper plastic boxed drinks, there is also a 0.2L small box. Its top is opened with a small round hole and sealed with composite aluminum foil. The small straw set in the small plastic film bag is stuck to the side of the box. When using, it can be drunk as long as the straw is inserted. It is simple and convenient, and is especially suitable for children. Most of these small packages are in the form of collective packaging, that is, 10 small boxes of beverages are wrapped with heat shrinkable film as a packaging unit

the second largest category of beverage packaging in Germany is plastic bottles, that is, we often say polyester bottles. Common small bottles with a capacity of 0.5 L and large bottles with a capacity of 1.5 l have no other materials to replace EPS board in the important position of the insulation market. Beverages packaged in small bottles include apple juice, lemon juice, oranges and other fruits, and cola is also introduced to use this kind of small bottle packaging. Common beverages in large bottle packaging include various kinds of cola, such as Coca Cola, Pepsi Cola and other brands of cola, as well as mixed drinks such as cherry juice, hawthorn juice and other fruits. Polyester bottles of this size can often be seen in mineral water packaging. In addition to the shelf life of polyester bottled drinks directly printed at the lower part of the bottleneck, other items such as the product name, raw material content, manufacturer, recycling mark and trademark are printed on a paper strip of a certain width, and then pasted around the bottle. Plastic caps are used for caps of plastic bottles of all sizes. There is a small circle at the lower end of the cap, which is connected with the main cap through some thin lines of the same material. When the cap is unscrewed, these thin lines are disconnected, and the cap can be unscrewed, but the small circle is still on the bottleneck. At this time, it can be seen that the bottle has been opened. Small bottles of beverages are generally packaged in two rows with heat shrinkable film as a package. The proportional constant of longitudinal stress and longitudinal strain is the elastic modulus E unit of the material. However, the two ends of the packaging unit are not closed, and can be taken up from any end by reaching out for portability. The packaging of the large bottle unit is similar to that of the small bottle. The six bottles are wrapped in the heat shrinkable film in two rows. Because the packaging unit composed of the six large bottles is heavy, a plastic belt with a width of about 2 cm and a length of about 40 cm is pasted at the middle of the outer two sides of the packaging unit. After pasting, there is a certain gap between the plastic belt and the top of the packaging unit for hand-holding. Most of these large and small packaging units are stacked on pallets, which is conducive to loading, unloading and handling

the third largest category of beverage packaging in Germany is glass bottles, but the consumption is less than that of paper plastic boxes and polyester bottles. Common glass bottles for beverage packaging have different shapes, including straight barrel type, thin waist type and small cone type; The bottleneck has common type and short neck type; The glass bottle is mainly made of white glass; The bottle caps are all metal caps and screw caps. It is almost difficult to see the caps of beer bottles that need to be opened with corresponding tools. The text description and color pattern are printed on the label and then pasted on the bottle. The most common capacity of glass bottle is 0.5 liter. These glass bottles containing beverages or plastic boxes with fixed seats in units of 12 and 16 bottles, or 8 and 10 bottles in units of corrugated cardboard trays. Some of these small pallets are like a box cover placed upside down, and some are like a small box without a cover and with one cut off at each end. When the packaging strength meets the requirements, manufacturers are trying to reduce the amount of packaging materials. Finally, it should be noted that it is difficult to see beverages packaged in cans
