(2) Classification by bottle geometry

1、round bottle. The bottle has a round cross section and is the most widely used bottle type with high strength.

2、square bottles. The bottle has a square cross section, and the strength of the bottle is lower than that of the round bottle, and it is difficult to manufacture, so it is used less.
