Treatments for improvement of the alkali extraction characteristics of the internal surface of soda lime glass containers are described. The extent of improvement was determined by an alkali extraction procedure considerably more stringent than the conventional U. S. P. chemical resistance procedure. The degree of improvement is described in terms of acid titration value, pH elevation and analysis of the extract solution for Na and Si. In addition, the results of surface analyses of the treated surfaces by an ion microprobe (SIMS) technique are described.
