Thermo Scientific Nalgene Sterile HDPE Plastic Leakproof* Sample Bottles
Perform many small volume packing applications with Thermo Scientific Nalgene HDPE Diagnostic Bottles with Closure. These durable sample bottles feature uniform walls that are resistant to splitting or puncturing. Bottles can be used in test kits and are packed in shrink-wrapped SBS trays for easy handling. The trays can be used as an aid for machine fill-line loading. Nalgene's Diagnostic Bottles are produced in a controlled environment and include leakproof white unlined polypropylene (PP) caps. To ensure leakproof performance, use only with caps provided.
Is HDPE right for me?
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a plastic material that is economical, impact resistant, and provides a good moisture barrier. HDPE is best known for its naturally translucent appearance and flexibility. It is compatible with a wide range of products including acid concentrates and some caustics, but is not compatible with solvents. The addition of color will make HDPE opaque, but not glossy. HDPE offers good protection at below freezing temperatures, but must not be used with products filled at over 180°F or products requiring a hermetic seal.
*The term "leakproof" applies to Thermo Scientific Nalgene products that meet the following criteria: a) Bottle/flask/funnel closure systems with closures smaller than 100mm, after they are filled with water, inverted, withstand air pressure of 2psig for 2 minutes, and no water escapes;. b) Bottle/funnel/flask closure systems of larger than 100mm after they are filled with water, inverted for 15 minutes, and no water escapes. Note: these tests, using other liquids, may not yield the same results. To ensure safe usage, customers are advised to test Thermo Scientific Nalgene bottles and closures under conditions of their planned applications. Thermo Scientific Nalgene products are leakproof at ambient temperature and pressure when used with their Nalgene closures.
