How to choose the right plastic spray bottle for liquid products

Choosing the best spray bottle or container for your product is almost as important as the product itself. The essential questions are Who will be using your product? This will this affect the shape and size of the container What material should the container be made of? – PET, HDPE or recycled plastic? How will the product be dispensed? Will you need a spray, foam, or fine mist spray pattern?

Looking for expert advice on plastic spray bottles?

Your consumers will want the container or spray bottle to be appealing and convenient to use. Popular shapes for spray bottles can be seen in our Elan and Ceri ranges which are known in the industry for their ease of filling and labelling.

It might be worth considering the end target market for your product and how the shape may appeal to them. Traditionally, curved packaging can represent femininity and straight angled packaging can represent masculinity.

Larger bottles, such as 1000ml, often include waisted features to allow for better grip, which is ideal for the elderly, people with smaller hands or for use in an industrial setting where the user may need to wear gloves.

Containers for specialist, industrial or medical products will generally require sufficient space for usage instructions and warnings, so bottles with a large label area are a good choice for this.

The size of the spray bottle should be appropriate to the purpose of the product and the typical end user.

If your packaging is for a specialist product that requires only a small application, such as a lens cleaner, smaller bottles of 125ml to 250ml are recommended. These bottles have a 24mm neck, so a mist spray or mini trigger head works well for dispensing the product.

Spray-applied products used in the household, such as cleaning solutions or auto care products, are typically contained in 500ml to 750ml bottles, preventing them from becoming too heavy while providing the necessary volume.

1000ml bottles and larger are good for commercial and professional use but are generally too heavy for domestic use.

You need to consider:

  • is the product light sensitive?
  • how will the use of colour impact my brand image?

If your product is a coloured liquid which specifically aligns with your brand image, then clear PET plastic bottles might be appropriate as the colour of the liquid will show through, resulting in a coloured effect. 

If the colour of your product does not look very attractive to consumers, then it is best to have it concealed by a white container. White is the ideal background for when colourful labels will be applied to the finished pack.

Black bottles help to block UV light – an excellent choice for products such as those based on hypoclorous acid and other constituents that degenerate in natural light.

The translucent finish of natural HDPE allows the level of the liquid contents to be seen, which can be a benefit.

As general guidance, bottles of 250ml and smaller are usually fitted with a 24mm neck so they can be paired with either mist sprays or mini trigger heads.

500ml bottles and larger have 28mm necks to suit full size trigger spray heads or industrial trigger heads where necessary.

All these items are held in stock at Cambrian in addition to standard closures, dispensing closures and lotion pumps.

Our trigger spray bottlestrigger flasks, and spray flasks are stocked in clear PET and white/natural HDPE, both of which are fully recyclable. We also offer black HDPE and other colours are available to order subject to minimum production quantities.

As a recent addition, the popular Elan range is now available in 30% PCR material in the 500ml and 750ml sizes, these products are nil rated for the Plastic Packaging Tax. Elan bottles are also available in 100% recycled HDPE, more info below. 

We own the tooling and designs for the Elan and Conway ranges of plastic spray bottles, these have been created to suit a range of applications in a number of sectors such as cleaning, automotive, pet care, animal care, equine, industrial, pharmaceutical and medical use. These quality plastic spray bottles are produced right here in the UK.  

We stock the 500ml and 750ml Elan spray bottles made in Ecycle™ which is fully recycled HDPE. Click HERE for the Ecycle™ range. 

Cambrian has watched with interest over the years as the demand for (PCR) post-consumer recycled plastic packaging has grown. In 2017 we introduced our Ecycle™ range, which is made using 100% recycled HDPE (rHDPE). You can view that here

We are pleased to have added our popular 500ml and 750ml Elan plastic spray bottles to our new Zero Plastic Packaging Tax range, which is growing all the while. We will be adding more items to this range, so look out for the Zero Plastic Packaging Tax logo. 

The new plastic spray bottles will be exactly the same popular shape, dimensions and weight as the standard items, meaning no changes to labels will be necessary. Samples can be requested on each product page via this website. The Elan additions are actually some of the first 30% PCR bottles to be introduced to the market.

We hope this will be a game-changer for many of our customers, as it will preclude these products from liability for the Plastic Packaging Tax. Our intention is to offer 30% recycled plastic packaging as a stock item wherever commercially viable so our customers can have the opportunity to get their orders settled well before the Plastic Packaging Tax becomes active on April 30, 2022. We are already working to expand the range further.

Spray bottle compatibility and sustainability

When choosing the material for your container or spray bottle, compatibility with the contents is very important: choose from PET plastic bottles (Polyethylene Terephthalate), HDPE (High Density Poly Ethylene), Ecycle recycled bottles (100% rHDPE) or 30% plastic packaging (which can be 30% PET or HDPE).
Because it is non-reactive, PET plastic is mainly used for solvent liquids, drinks, dressings, oils, shampoo, and mouthwash. PET plastic in inherently resistant to solvents but should not be used for alkaline products of pH greater than 8. Learn about using PET in our other blog, ‘Bottle sprayers for winter car care products’.
HDPE packaging or spray bottles can be used for acidic and alkaline products, such as chemicals and cleaning products but HDPE has limited compatibility with solvents and hydrocarbon-based products. For more information, view our Quick Reference Materials Guide.
When sustainability is a concern, consider our Ecycle™ range, which is made in 100% recycled HDPE polymer.
Our ZER0 range includes HDPE and PET bottles manufactured with 30% rPET plastic polymer. Bottles from these ranges will not be liable for the Plastic Packaging Tax. For more information, read our whitepaper.
