Among these three types of ampoule breaking types, The first two are more commonly used internationally, and the first type the most common.ampoules with color rings (decorative rings) are gradually being accepted with the development of differentiation and personalization.However, this method requires higher specifications and dimensions for the glass tube, bottle manufacturing processes, and filling equipment.
Classified By Color
