How can you tell if dangerous asbestos is lurking in a vacuum jug? Quite simple: just look inside the jug before you buy it. If you see small dots – only a few millimetres in size – in the glass, then you’d best put the jug back on the store shelf.
These dots are spacers – they’re often made of asbestos and are frequently used in mechanically-manufactured vacuum liners from China.
Asbestos will never be hiding in EMSA products – guaranteed! We only use Indian-made liners in our vacuum jugs. Our hand-blown liners are made in one piece – so no spacers are necessary. These are exactly the kind of details that are very important to us – we want you to just relax and enjoy your coffee or tea.
