Squeezable Glass Bottle: The Best of Both Worlds
Plastic bottles are really convenient. They have made life real easy for all of us. Travel has gone from big icebox’s and water bottles to packs of these easy to carry plastic bottles. The issue though is that unlike glass bottles these bottles are prone to smells and moulds apart from their environment killing aspect. The problem with the better option, glass bottles is that they are not for people with butterfingers or folks who are incident prone.
Now an American company has introduced a bottle which is the best of both world. It is called the Squeezable Glass and it is exactly what it sounds like. Though it’s not actually real glass which can be Squeezed, life’s not all that good yet. Instead we have a plastic bottle that is lined with Silicon Oxide on the inside.
Now you might be saying: Silicon Oxide sounds like a chemical, I don’t trust chemicals. Well to that we will first of all say that we are made of chemicals and secondly silicon oxide is a naturally occurring compound which is present in many fruits and vegetable. Silicon Oxide in this case is used for a glass substitute.
The layer is just 20 nanometers thick (2.0 × 10-5 millimeters). Even with this thin layer, the bottle is capable of doing what its competition cannot do. It can prevent smells, flavours, mould and residue from sticking to the plastic while being flexible.
The Squeezable bottle is also easy to clean; you can easily throw it in the dishwasher too. The diameter of the bottle is just 3 inches thereby making it cup holder friendly. The bottle comes at a miniscule price of $15, and if that wasn’t enough, the company throws in a 17 year warranty. Hopefully this comes across to all bottles and might help to reduce some of the damage to the environment while remaining as convenient as ever. Now that’s an inspiration technology, good for business and nature.
