PVC Coated Bottles
  Products available in PVC coated bottles

To help prevent chemical spills, Sigma-Aldrich provides solvents in the shatter-resistant, poly vinyl chloride coated bottles. The plastic coating aids in absorbing some of the shock in the event the bottle is dropped and assists in containing the spill. Selected solvents are available in 100mL, 1L and 4L PVC coated bottles (refer to above Bottle/Packaging Specifications).

Sure/Seal™ Bottles
Products available in Sure/Seal bottles

The Sure/Seal bottle incorporates the inert composition of our amber glass bottles with a time-tested crimp-top system. This design ensures the exceptional state of dryness achieved at time of purification is maintained throughout long-term storage and use.

Before filling, low levels traces of moisture are removed from the bottle through oven drying. The bottles are then filled under an inert atmosphere of dry nitrogen to prevent moisture build-up and sealed with our unique Sure/Seal liner and crown cap. Anhydrous and Biotech grades are available in 100mL, 1L and 2L Sure/Seal bottles (refer to above Bottle/Packaging Specifications).


Dispensing Methods for Sure/Seal Bottles

Standard syringe and cannula techniques are used to transfer the contents.
See Technical Bulletin AL-134.


Sure/Seal Transfer Accessories
CHEM-FLEX Transfer Line

Two 12-gauge SS needles (6 and 18 in.) are connected to the CHEM-FLEX 106 tubing with nylon clamps. Solvents contact only PTFE and SS during transfers.


Aldrich Sure/Stor™ flasks (Z40,449-3)

Designed for safe, reliable storage and dispensing of air-sensitive and odoriferous chemicals, solvents, pyrophorics, alkyl lithiums, Grignards and corrosives.
Features:

  • High-vacuum PTFE valve-to-glass seal eliminates air contamination in storage and septum leakage after initial needle penetration
  • Heavy-wall borosilicate glass
  • Removable side-arm hose connector for easy attachment of vacuum and inert gas lines. For long-term storage, replace hose connector with a rubber septum for secondary protection.
