This Wheaton straight-sided jar has a soda-lime glass body and a white polypropylene screw-on cap with a poly-vinyl liner. The wide-mouth jar accepts large solid samples, and has straight sides that allow for complete removal of contents. The white polypropylene cap is suitable for use with solids, mild acids, alkalis, solvents, alcohols, oils, and aqueous solutions. The poly-vinyl cap liner provides a moisture barrier. This bottle comes with an adhesive hazardous communication label for content identification and safety information, which can be applied over the top of a closed lid to create a tamper-evident seal. The soda-lime glass conforms to United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) Type III requirements for solvent, chemical, and sample storage, such as some dry powder types, and use in dry-heat sterilization applications. This bottle is suitable for storing soil and environmental samples, and for use in mixing and storing liquid or solid samples, including mild acids, solvents, and alcohols.
Lab bottles are used to store, hold, and mix liquids, powders, and other substances in a wide variety of scientific industries. Lab bottles have a more pronounced neck and shoulder than jars. Lab bottles are manufactured with a combination of characteristics in order to meet the demands of particular applications, such as for solution dispensing, mixing, and weighing, and use in centrifuge operations. They come in many shapes for specific applications, with a variety of mouth or nozzle shapes and sizes for specific use. Lab bottles are made from materials, such as glass (borosilicate or soda-lime) and an array of plastics, which are selected for chemical and thermal expansion resistance, transparency, and their adaptability in a variety of applications. Lab bottle interiors, caps, and lids are often lined with a protective material. Caps and lids help seal bottles to prevent solutions from spilling. The capacity refers to the fluid amount held by a lab bottle, and is commonly measured in milliliters (mL) and liters (l), and sometimes in ounces (oz). Lab bottles are suitable for use in chemistry and biology applications, as well as in pharmaceutical and scientific testing.
