We love the little pod as well as the globe, so therefore we choose only the best, namely 100% Pure Platinum silicone.
Many people think that silicone is a type of plastic, and it may seem that way, but that is not quite right. Silicone is not plastic. Plastic comes with lots of problems that we would rather avoid. The material is difficult to break down in nature, and toxic chemicals can leak into food and drink.
Silicone shares many of the positive properties that we know from plastic, but fortunately does not have all the buttocks. Silicone is a common term for a number of temperature-tolerant and water-repellent synthetic polymers, chemical compounds, which contain the element silicon which is the second most common element in the earth's crust. In our products we have chosen to use PLATINUM SILICONE, this type of silicone has a higher quality, is cleaner and therefore even safer and more durable.
The silicone we use is the same as used in medical equipment. Due to its purity, it is preferred by the pharmaceutical industry. This type of silicone has better tensile and tear strength than ordinary silicone, and it is hardened in a way that prevents it from turning yellow. Platinum silicone is considered to be a cleaner silicone also according to the environment and recycling. Platinum silicone is more difficult to make due to the high temperatures required to cure the silicone. Once the silicone is mixed, it must be cast within 24-36 hours. For manufacturers, the compound is also more expensive to buy, than the traditional silicone. If you want to read more about PLATINUM SILICONE, you will find a lot of exciting things here.
