A & Q:
Q: Do metal bottles contain BPA?
A: Because aluminum is susceptible to corrosion, aluminum bottles utilize liners made with epoxy resins that may contain BPA. Nalgene does not sell aluminum bottles. In contrast, stainless steel bottles, including Nalgene Stainless Steel bottles, do not use liners of any kind and therefore do not contain BPA.
Q: How do i tell if my metal bottle has an epoxy lining?
A: It is nearly impossible to identify just by looking inside your bottle. Stainless steel bottles do not contain linings of any kind. Aluminum bottles however, do contain epoxy linings. If you have further questions about aluminum liners, please contact your bottle supplier for more information.
Q: Are other Nalgene products manufactured with BPA?
A: No. they manufacture consumer bottles and containers in HDPE, PP, LDPE, PET, and most recently, Eastman Tritan copolyester and Stainless Steel (by Guyot Design). Each of these materials is manufactured without BPA. For more information on each of these materials, they have created Nalgene Choice, an online information resource designed to provide consumers with accurate and detailed information about the features and benefits of Nalgene's full product line and materials.
Q: Why does Nalgene use polycarbonate?
A: Many consumers prefer polycarbonate because of its unmatched ability to offer extraordinary durability, glass like clarity and resistance to stains and odors. And polycarbonate has been widely used by many companies throughout the food and beverage industry, as well as other consumer products, for over forty-five years.
Back in 1949, a Rochester, New York chemist named Emanuel Goldberg developed the first plastic pipette holder. Along with three workers, he began the Nalge Company in a small building at 625 South Goodman Street. For years Goldberg and his growing team developed the Nalgene line of state-of-the-art polyethylene laboratory equipment: centrifuge bottles, filter units, storage tanks. Obviously, it wasn't the kind of stuff you toss into your backpack for a weekend in the woods. But there were rumors floating around … stories about scientists taking the smaller, more convenient bottles out of the lab and using them on hikes and excursions.By the 1970s this "unofficial" use for Nalgene bottles caught the eye of Marsh Hyman (President of the Nalge Company in Rochester, New York).
At Nalgene, there all about helping people simplify their lives while respecting the environment. That's why they created reusable containers of all kinds, made from a wide range of materials to suit your personal preferences, needs and lifestyle. So whether you're looking for a virtually indestructible drinking bottle for a backcountry adventure, or you want a clean, green way of storing your dry pasta, you'll find a Nalgene product that gets the job done.
