Gym Water Bottle Material
Also known as a squeeze, the water bottle or plastic water bottle (ขวดน้ําพลาสติก which is the term in Thai) you see your gym buddies using will be your gym companion. Searching for stores that sell these bottles, we see that there are several models with different formats and materials and a very different closure system. But let’s talk more about the material that composes them. You can find it in 3 types of materials and each one with its characteristic:
These are the most found in different shapes and colors. A plastic bottle is a great option as it is lightweight, easy to wash, and inexpensive. And speaking of plastic, we must be careful in the composition of the bottles, as some contain Bisphenol-A (BPA) and, when heated, release this toxin. Another problem is at the time of disposal, which often happens wrongly and releases these same toxins into the environment.
Aluminum is recycled on a large scale in Brazil, so this material is more sustainable than plastic. Plus, an aluminum bottle is lightweight great for taking to the gym. We should only pay attention to the resistance, as it can be easily dented in beats. Some even have BPA in the inner lining, so check the bottle’s composition when buying it.
This is another very light material, stronger and more durable than aluminum. Because they are only made of stainless steel, they are not harmful to health, and they are also great for washing and can even be placed in the dishwasher. On the other hand, it is necessary to check before finalizing the purchase which temperature it is indicated for because some store hot drinks; others store cold drinks. So, check out the instructions to keep your water at the ideal temperature. Shapes and tips Here, the shape options are many, but the narrow shape in the middle of the bottle is more anatomical in hand easier to hold. The water outlet also has the shape of a screw cap and another that has a spout for drinking water. Choose the one that pleases you the most.
