GLASSWARE GUIDE

Scroll down to see our guide on our candle glassware

Here at Eroma we are in constant motion, continuously innovating and improving our product range, supplying only the highest quality in candle glassware.

Our first step in becoming Australia's highest quality glass supplier was our transition from 'blown' glassware to 'moulded' glassware in 2008. By providing the revolutionary concept of moulded jars, candle makers across the board have now raised the standards and increased the quality of the candle they produce. 

Moulded glassware has a higher resistance to shattering due to its increased glass strength. The thicker wall causes more heat to be retained by the jar after the wax has been poured into the container. This causes the wax to cool at a slower rate, creating a stronger bond when initially forming and adhering to the glass.

Danube jars were our first moulded glasses to be launched and are now accompanied by Oxford and Velino tumblers. This is only the beginning of what could be the most extensive glassware range available on the market today.

In 2013, we acquired our own glassware manufacturing plant in China. This has enabled us to have complete control over two important factors: design and quality. We now have the capabilities to produce the glassware ranges we have dreamed of producing for years.

THE DIFFERENCE

At Eroma, we try to differentiate our brand from our competitors by providing a higher quality product. We have been able to achieve this with our glassware by shifting from 'blown' glassware to 'moulded' glassware. Any doubts or uncertainties of the glasses' strength are instantly alleviated when you feel the mass of the glass in your hand - its heavy, sturdy nature fortifies the glass allowing it to be dropped from waist height without shattering.

When comparing moulded glass to blown glass it's important to look at both sides of the table, advantages and disadvantages.

BLOWN GLASS

BLOWN GLASS
ADVANTAGES DISADVANTAGES
  • Cheaper
  • Unseamed
  • Blown glass can restrict the crystallisation of some palm waxes as the slow cooling process needed for the crystal reaction to occur is countered and accelerated because of the thin wall of the glass.
  • As the glass is thinner, it is more prone to breaking or shattering, both while pouring and during transit.
  • Inconsistencies in the glassware; glasses are never identical.
  • Glasses are more prone to defects.

MOULDED GLASS

MOULDED GLASS
ADVANTAGES DISADVANTAGES
  • Safer and stronger
  • Higher resistance to shattering
  • The thicker wall causes more heat to be retained by the jar after wax has been poured into the container, this causes the wax to cool at a slower rate, creating a stronger bond when initially forming and adhering to the glass.
  • Wet spots are more distinct if wax adhesion is weak.
  • In colder climates preheating is required before pouring to achieve strong adhesion.
  • A subtle seam line runs down either side of the jar symbolising where each half of the mould met when the jar was created.
