Plastic Bottled Water Safety Study Finds Possible Effects of Heat on Bottled Waters
Whether you are looking for peace and serenity or just some extra convenience, one item that can help you out immensely is a bottle of drink cool as it sprays cold refreshingly and carries the promise of purified water. This item is also highly beneficial for campers, hikers, and campfire enthusiasts. There have also been reports of people using bottled water in their homes for several days without the slightest thing to worry about since the bottle was sealed at the factory and was supposed to last for such a long time.
Bottled Water Hopes And Dreams
However, it has also been a matter of concern among numerous studies that bottled water can leach chemicals into the tap water if left in an open flame. Stainless steel containers do not leach chemicals, but still, keeping bottled water handy is an excellent method to keep oneself hydrated. In a recent study conducted by a group of Italian researchers, several brands of bottled water were placed under identical conditions in order to determine the effects of heat on various plastics materials. Although plastic bottles made of polycarbonate did not experience any major change in temperature when exposed to extreme heat, there was a significant change in the performance of plastics made of other materials such as polyethylene. Polyethylene, one of the most common plastic materials used in bottles and other food containers used daily everywhere, experiences a drastic change in performance when subjected to heat.
Nestl Pure is one of the few plastic bottle manufacturers that has taken a proactive step to address these issues. It has invested a huge amount of time and money in conducting a comprehensive safety analysis of its product. Through this study, Nestl Pure has established a new benchmark for plastic bottle safety. In the event that bottles of Nestl Pure are accidentally misused, the company states that it would immediately take corrective measures to minimize the damage done. In addition, in response to the findings of the study, Nestl Pure has signed an agreement with the Food and Drug Administration to conduct further studies in the area of plastics materials and their reactions to heat.
