    just happen to wonder....

    how does the yakult or vitagen company seal their bottles with the aluminium foil?

    is there anyway i can do the same at home too?

    i have some chemicals for those primary and secondary science expt. i have some glass test tubes (in fact quite a lot, pyrex one) and was thinking of storing them in it.

    Plastics are out as the plastic will turn bad after some time. Glass bottles of drinks are also out as the rubber (or silicone or whatever) will spoil very fast under the effect of the chemical. u know, once the gasket is out, it leaks then.

    therefore i am thinking of sealing them with aluminium foil and the pyrex tubes.

    for those thinking what chemicals are they, dont worry, they are very safe stuff and can be bought easily at some lab suppliers stores outside. no need licence one.

    thought pyrex test tubes have optional silicone stoppers, also corrode?

    Since we have no idea what chemicals are involved, and it's only for storage purposes, why not check with the suppliers of chemical storage vessels or even pharmaceutical supplies companies? If it's corrosive in that it will break down rubber and plastics, and potentially harmful enough that it needs to be kept securely sealed, it might not be a good idea to DIY a container.

    thanks for the inputs!

    i know that aluminium should be fine and glass should be fine.

    i am thinking about this as the original container has a crack that i see. so need some change. also, smaller tubes, easier the give out to ppl also (when there is such a need).

    so any idea how to seal like those vitagen bottles?
