Scientists prefer glass because it is transparent, inert to most chemicals and heat resistant as compared to plastics. Now, they can enjoy a new feature – improved safety.
Kimble Chase, the largest manufacturer of laboratory glassware products in the world, introduces KimCote plastic coated glassware. KimCote is an ultra-clear coating that is applied to the exterior of laboratory glassware in order to resist breakage and contain leakage. The coating provides an important additional level of protection against the risk of exposure to harmful biologics, toxic materials, pressurized fluids, and many common laboratory chemicals, including solvents and acids. KimCote also protects against injury from shattered glass. A durable, proprietary coating provides a non-slip surface texture that improves the ability to grip KimCote glassware whether wet or dry, further minimizing the chance of handling mishaps and exposure.
Kimble Chase offers KimCote coating on many traditional glassware products, including bottles, cylinders, flasks, funnels, tissue grinders and tubes. Application of KimCote coating to other glassware is available upon request. All KimCote glassware is designed to withstand steam autoclave temperatures up to 120°C (250°F) and freezing temperature to -20°C (-4°F). KimCote is safe for dishwashers and microwaves and the coated surface accommodates labeling and marking.
KimCote is available worldwide from multiple manufacturing facilities located in the US, Europe and Asia, which are operated in compliance with ISO quality standards.
