Sun-protected glass bottle

Beer can develop off-flavours after 'light strike'. Green bottles can be just as transparent as clear glass bottles to damaging wavelengths of ultraviolet and visible violet, indigo and blue light. Aside from beer, some clear and green bottles may also leave certain wines, medicines, personal care products and vegetable oils vulnerable to light-induced damage. To counter this, CSIRO's research team at CMIT in Clayton, Victoria, has developed a transparent coating for glass bottles that screens the contents from damaging light.
