  • Publication number: 20160297705
    Abstract: A method for severing a glass sheet includes preferentially heating a region of the glass sheet to form a softened region. A slit is formed in the softened region of the glass sheet to form a slit region. The slit extends at least partially into a thickness of the glass sheet. Heat is preferentially applied to the slit region of the glass sheet.

  • Publication number: 20160095795
    Abstract: The present invention is based, at least in part, on the identification of a pharmaceutical container formed, at least in part, of a glass composition which exhibits a reduced propensity to delaminate, i.e., a reduced propensity to shed glass particulates. As a result, the presently claimed containers are particularly suited for storage of pharmaceutical compositions and, specifically, a pharmaceutical solution comprising a pharmaceutically active ingredient, for example, LEVEMIR, NOVOLOG, NOVOLIN 70-30, NOVOLIN R, NOVOLIN N, NOVOLOG MIX 70-30 and NOVOLIN L.

  • Patent number: 9272946
    Abstract: The glass containers described herein have at least two performance attributes selected from resistance to delamination, improved strength, and increased damage resistance. In one embodiment, a glass container with resistance to delamination and improved strength may include a body having an inner surface, an outer surface and a wall thickness extending between the outer surface and the inner surface. At least the inner surface of the body may have a delamination factor less than or equal to 10. The glass container may further include a compressively stressed layer extending from the outer surface of the body into the wall thickness. The compressively stressed layer may have a surface compressive stress greater than or equal to 150 MPa.
