Glass, Metal, Plastic, Vials, Packers

McKernan carries millions of packaging components including glass jars, plastic jars, candle glass and packers.

Glass and plastic jars are defined as wide mouth containers, usually without handles. They can be different shapes, sizes, colors and materials. Glass jars are most often clear or flint but can be available in other colors and in frosted glass. Plastic jars can be made from several types of plastic with the most common being made out of PET, HDPE, PVC, PP and acrylic. These plastic jars can be single-walled or double-walled with a decorative exterior that can sometimes be made of metal or a metallic type finish.

Ranging in size from 1 ML up to 2 gallons, plastic jars and glass jars have a large variety of uses in hair care, beauty, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, pet care, home & garden, and automotive industries.

Glass and plastic jars are popular for fresh pack, canning, honey, spices and many other foods. Many glass and acrylic jars can have a decorative outside making them ideal for use in cosmetics, hair care and beauty products such as hair creams and pomades, face masks, serums, gels, make-up, cleansers, and eye creams. Low profile jars in plastic and glass are great for travel-sized packaging or for high-end creams, lotions, and gels. Often, the automotive industry will use plastic jars for waxes, polishes, greases, rubbing compounds, and hand cleaners.

McKernan carries an extensive line of packers made of glass, PET and HDPE that are ideal for pills, vitamins, supplements, medicinal herbs, essential oils, and other pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and herbaceutical applications for use with both humans and pets.

Candle glass is similar to glass jars and are available in several colors with flint, clear and frosted being the most popular. They can be found in a variety of sizes including smaller votive styles and larger tumbler styles. Popular for the holidays or crafting, candle glass is often found in personal care, home & garden, and food & beverage industries.
