EVERIC® strong & smooth

The perfect match for ultimate filling line performance
Request quote

Pharmaceutical glass vial with optimized geometrical strength and low-friction outer surface

During conventional bulk fill-and-finish processing, vials are constantly subjected to glass-to-glass contact and loads, resulting in increased cosmetic defects, a higher risk of breakage, and the potential for sticking and climbing during depyrogenation. The consequences of this continuous contact can be reduced line speed, higher final reject rates, downtimes, interruptions, and increased costs.

EVERIC® strong & smooth vials combine optimized geometrical strength with a surface that’s protected by a low-friction outer coating. Manufactured using an improved forming process with specialized inspection, EVERIC® strong & smooth vials are coated using a dip-coating process to produce the perfect match for improved line performance.

Decrease risk while increasing line performance

EVERIC® strong & smooth vials can optimize your bulk fill-and-finish process by reducing the risk of breakage and reducing the final reject rate due to cosmetic defects. In addition, they can increase line speed thanks to smoother transport, reduction of blocking vials, and no sticking or climbing.

Smoothly through the production process

SCHOTT Pharma has run a series of tests to find out more about the glass vials’ tendency to break. The results show a significant increase of vial strength up to a factor of 4 and a decrease of cosmetic defects by 95%.

Smoothly through the production process with SCHOTT vials

Reduced rejects and increased speed

Using geometrical optimization, EVERIC® strong delivers an improved strength that’s within existing ISO tolerances, without the need to change the glass composition or apply additional chemical treatments.

  • EVERIC® smooth’s low-friction outer coating leads to an improved gliding behavior of the vials during bulk fill-and-finish

  • Sticking and climbing of the vials is prevented, interruptions are reduced, and the line speed can be increased

  • The outer coating protects the glass surface, resulting in a significant decrease of final rejects

  • When combined, EVERIC® strong & smooth vials deliver their full potential to increase efficiency on bulk fill-and-finish lines.


Optimized strength: Rely on our unchanged glass matrix produced within existing ISO tolerances

Increased line speed: Ensure a smoother and faster transportation due to optimized gliding behavior

Lower final reject rate: Reduce cosmetic rejects thanks to protective outer coating

Improved reliability: Conservation of improved strength by durable outer coating

Improve your manufacturing processes!

Continuous evaluation of manufacturing processes is essential to attain greater drug yield with fewer resources. At the same time, high-quality standards and flexibility must be maintained. Lower cost, better quality, and higher flexibility can be contradictory goals and require a fundamental rethinking of manufacturing processes…

Sterile format

Make your EVERIC® strong & smooth ready-to-use

EVERIC® strong & smooth vials are available in the adaptiQ® format, a pre-washed and pre-sterilized ready-to-use (RTU) configuration in highly standardized secondary packaging.

Small batches of patient-facing medications and high-value pharmaceuticals often present challenges for fill-and-finish operations. Not only do they require higher quality containers, but they also require more flexibility, with frequent switching between different medications to avoid costly waste.

adaptiQ® vials can be processed on a variety of new and existing fill-and-finish lines, keeping vials nested throughout the process, including freeze-drying.
