Precision Balls and Components for the Medical Health and Beauty Aid Industry

Posted: Feb 14, 2018 2:46:24 PM

When it comes to the components necessary to create a great product in the health and beauty industry, there's often more than meets the eye. From roll-on applicators to spray bottles, health and beauty products make use of a variety of devices to store and apply the product. In order for these devices to work as intended, though, they need to be equipped with the right precision balls and components.

In this article, we'll take a look at some common health and beauty aid products as well as the benefits of equipping these products with quality components from Hartford Technologies.

Roll-On Bottles

Roll-on bottles are a popular applicator for a range of health and beauty products such as roll-on analgesics and certain lip balms and lip glosses. The core component of these roll-on bottles is a precision ball, possibly glass precision balls, that allow just the right amount of product to be applied. If the ball in a roll-on bottle is too small, it may fall out or allow the product to leak. If it is too large, it may not easily roll or allow enough of the product to be applied. Though the balls in roll-on bottles play a simple role, it is essential that they be precision-made in order to achieve the desired result.

Agitator Balls

Many products in the health and beauty industry from bug sprays to nail polishes must be thoroughly agitated each time before they are used. To accomplish this, agitator balls are often placed within the product so that when the product is shaken the ball's movement is able to help ensure that it is thoroughly mixed. Since many of these products are corrosive, it's important that quality, corrosion-resistant balls be used any time the ball is going to be in direct contact with the product, such as is the case with agitator balls.

Dispense Valve Balls

Spray bottles are among the most common type of applicator used in the health and beauty industry, and these applicators must make use of precision-made dispense ball valves in order to ensure that the right amount of product is dispensed every time.
