Before distinguishing between stainless steel cups and silicone folding cups, let’s take a look at silicone and stainless steel.

Silicone is widely used in our life. Silicone material is internationally recognized as a safe non toxic material, colorless and odorless, and harmless to the environment. And because silicone vulcanization has excellent high temperature resistance, low temperature, weather resistance, hydrophobic, electrical insulation, physiological inertia and other characteristics; So, no matter in which country, silicone will always appear in some important places. In military, metal components will be used in the silicone bag hardware; in life, it’s everything from earplugs to silicone seals in the cockpit of airplanes.

Stainless steel is a synthetic metal that contains chromium and nickel. Stainless steel resistance to air, steam, water and other weak corrosive medium or stainless steel, but we all know that metal is harmful to the human body, especially chromium and nickel, long term and stainless steel contact will cause certain damage to the human body, this is just contact with stainless steel.

Next, I’m going to talk about which is better, the silicone folding cup or the stainless steel cup.

The first point: silicone is more stable than stainless steel, stainless steel in contact with acid, alkali substances, will have chemical reaction; can produce harmful substances to human body. Especially when the stainless steel cup and traditional Chinese medicine together, the composition of the stainless steel cup and traditional Chinese medicine alkaloids, organic acids and other components of chemical reaction, easy to make the drug failure, or generate more toxic chemicals. Instead, Reusable Travel Collapsible Silicone Folding Cup don’t have these problems, organic silicon product is silicon (Si – O – oxygen key chain structure, C – C key in the key to 82.6 kcal/mol, Si – O can key in the key in the organic silicon is 121 kcal/mol, so the thermal stability of silicone products, high temperature molecular bonds do not broken and down. Therefore, silicone can withstand high temperature, but also low temperature, can be used in a wide temperature range. Both chemical and physical mechanical properties change very little with temperature. So, silicone folding cups are much safer than stainless steel cups.

Second, because of the characteristics of silicone, it can be made into very soft things, but also can be made into something of general hardness. And stainless steel is an alloy; the metal hardness is very high; so basically everything it makes is hard. When you’re out and about, a stainless steel cup takes up too much space, while a silicone cup doesn’t. You can fold it up and put it in your bag when you don’t need it. In terms of weight, the stainless steel cup will be heavier than the silicone folding cup.

Third point: the silicone folding cup can be made in different colors, in line with people’s different aesthetic, and the color will not affect the safety of silicone. And stainless steel, there is only one color, a single choice.

Combined with the above points, we can draw a conclusion that the silicone folding cup is much better than the stainless steel cup in terms of safety and appearance! Since the silicone folding cup is so much better than the stainless steel cup, the xiaobian will strongly recommend these silicone folding cups.
