Baby Safe-T-Bottles are made of tough Tuxan borosilicate glass . Unlike regular glass, which has numerous microscopic surface imperfections which may harbour bacteria, Tuxan glass has a smoother surface which therefore harbours fewer germs and makes the bottles easier to sanitise than conventional bottles.
Borosilicate glass includes at least five percent boric oxide which makes borosilicate glass resistant to extreme temperatures, this Tuxan glass is heat shock resistance and can withstand temperatures up to 600 degrees celsius. This also improves its resistance to chemical corrosion. Borosilicate glass was once widely used to make glass for kitchens as well. Today, soda-lime glass is the glass of choice for kitchenware, due to the fact that it is generally cheaper to produce than borosilicate glass.
Borosilicate glass is more likely to crack or snap than to shatter, however, making it a safer glass to have around in a situation where breakage is a concern. In the event that borosilicate glass does crack, it is generally easier and safer to clean up than shattered glass. This glass is not invincible, of course. It will crack if subjected to very sudden and radical temperature fluctuations, or if it is dropped.
Borosilicate glass is stronger and more durable than conventional glass, but also very light.
No inks have been used in the production of these bottles, as the logo and volume markings have been etched into the glass. Handwashing will avoid fading of these markings.
Baby Safe-T-Bottles come fitted with a slow flow silicone teat and polypropylene cap which are free of bisphenol-A and other chemicals that may leach into drinking liquids.
The Peristaltic Teat that comes with your SAFE-T Bottle is designed to help newborns and colicky babies.
- A textured surface for more successful latching
- A wider nipple base for improved suction
- A nipple radius to fit perfectly in the roof of your baby’s mouth
These bottles are microwave and sterilizer safe.
Note : To avoid wearing off the etched markings, these bottles must only be hand washed.
The glass used within these bottles is the same grade ‘borosilicate’ as the glasses used in test tubes and medical instruments. It can withstand temperatures of up to 500 degrees celsius. Unlike conventional glass it is free from imperfections making it naturally anti-bacterial in design.
