Glass bottles are still the most preferred packaging for reagents. Also because acids in glass remain stable longer than those stored in PE bottles. Unfortunately glass can break. Merck has developed the Safebreak bottle, a revolutionary solution that combines the stability benefits of glass with the safety benefits of PE.
Safebreak bottle meets demanding specifications
• Should breakage occur, acid and glass splinters are contained
• Even with frequent opening and closing, screw cap keeps contents airtight
• Bottle can be recycled just like a conventional glass bottle
Engineered with safety, quality and the environment in mind
The Safebreak safety bottle is a glass bottle coated with polyethylene. If the bottle should break the PE coating contains the acid and glass splinters. The benefits of the Safebreak bottle don’t stop there. Each Safebreak bottle is fitted with a screw cap made of polypropylene with an integrated PTFE component. This cap makes the bottle completely airtight. No liquid or vapor can escape. Finally, the Safebreak bottle can be disposed of as regular glass; during incineration, the PE coating is burnt off without affecting the environment.
