Why do we use amber bottles for chemical storage

Great! Share this article  

When you're planning to store a chemical, it's important to know what type of container is best. For example, if you have sensitive chemicals that are prone to light degradation, then an amber bottle would be better for storage than a clear container such as glass or plastic.

If a chemical is sensitive to light, it's best to store it in amber bottles​

  • Protects the chemical from light.
  • Protects the chemical from chemicals in the container.
  • Protects the chemical from chemicals in the air.
  • Protects the chemical from chemicals in the atmosphere.
  • Protects the chemical from chemicals in the environment (such as moisture and oxygen).

Amber bottles will protect the chemical from chemicals in the container

Amber bottles are used to protect chemicals from light, and most chemicals can be protected from light by applying a coating of one of several substances.

There are many types of coatings that can be used for this purpose. One way to prevent damage to your chemical is by shielding it with boric acid or a similar product. Boric acid is often used as an insecticide and may also be found in some household products like flea collars for pets, but it should still be handled carefully. The fumes given off by boric acid are toxic and corrosive; it's recommended that you wear gloves when handling the substance or mixing it with other materials inside your amber bottle so as not to expose yourself unnecessarily risk exposure through inhalation or skin contact

Amber bottles are often the best choice for storing chemicals that are sensitive to light.

Light can be a powerful enemy when it comes to storing chemicals. UV light, in particular, can cause chemical reactions to speed up and slow down. It can also stop ongoing reactions altogether, or even start new ones!

As the name suggests, amber bottles are made with a glass tint that filters out most of the spectrum of visible light that could trigger these hazardous reactions. They're great for storing all kinds of things: from acids and bases to salts and solvents (like alcohol). Some amber bottles are even able to protect their contents from harmful radiation.

As we’ve seen, amber bottles are the best choice for storage if a chemical is sensitive to light. Amber glass also protects the chemical from chemicals in the container and keeps it from oxidizing as quickly. However, there are a few disadvantages to using amber glass as well. For example, it’s more expensive than clear or green bottles and can be harder to find when buying new containers online. Despite these drawbacks, we think that overall the benefits outweigh any drawbacks associated with using amber bottles—especially if you need them for long-term storage or want your product to last longer than other types of containers would allow!
