Original Press Release:
Volumetric Flasks with Light Protection Superior to Amber Glass
BrandTech Scientific introduces the new VITLAB® light-shielding volumetric flasks.
They are made of a specially pigmented polymethyl pentene (PMP) plastic that provides excellent absorption of light. In particular, absorption in the UV range - below 280nm and the upper visible range above 580nm-yet provides sufficient translucency to verify contents and volume, in most applications superior to amber glass. It provides a sunlight protection factor of nearly 20. Flasks are light weight and break resistant, and provide a cost-effective alternative to glass. Screw-on caps help protect flask contents better than traditional stoppers.
Flasks are available in sizes from 10mL to 1000mL. All volumes are Class A per DIN EN ISO 1042. Purchase through preferred laboratory supply dealers.
