Scientists often prefer glass because it is transparent, inert to most chemicals and heat resistant as compared to plastics. Now, they can enjoy a new feature: improved safety. Kimble Chase, the largest manufacturer of laboratory glassware products in the world, has introduced KimCote plastic coated glassware. KimCote is an ultra-clear coating that is applied to the exterior of laboratory glassware to enhance breakage resistance and contain leakage. The coating provides an important additional level of protection against the risk of exposure to harmful biologics, toxic materials, pressurized fluids and many common laboratory chemicals, including solvents and acids. KimCote also protects against injury from shattered glass. The durable proprietary coating provides a non-slip surface that improves the grip of KimCote glassware whether it is wet or dry, thereby further minimizing the risk of handling mishaps and contamination. Kimble Chase offers the KimCote coating on many traditional laboratory glassware products including bottles, cylinders, flasks, funnels, tissue grinders and tubes. Application of the KimCote coating to other glassware is available upon request. All KimCote glassware is designed to withstand steam autoclave temperatures up to 120C (250F) and freezing temperatures up to -20C (-4F). KimCote is safe for dishwashers and microwaves and the coated surface accommodates labelling and marking. KimCote is available worldwide from multiple manufacturing facilities located in the US, Europe and Asia which are operated in compliance with ASTM and ISO quality standards. Founded in July 2007, Kimble Chase Life Science and Research Products LLC is a joint venture that constitutes the Life Science Research Division of Gerresheimer. Ownership is shared between Thermo Fisher Scientific and Gerresheimer Glass Inc., a US subsidiary of Gerresheimer AG. The company is dedicated to the design, manufacture and distribution of a comprehensive range of reusable, disposable and specialty laboratory glassware for the following markets: pharmaceutical, chromatography, environmental, petrochemical, government, life science, and education.
