Back2Tap Product Quality

School Fundraising

Back2Tap stainless steel bottles are a safe and environmentally responsible reusable bottle choice.  They are stylish and lightweight and keep beverages fresh tasting throughout the day.

The Bottle

Our bottles are made of stainless steel, type 304 – a food grade 18/8 stainless steel composition (alloy) that won’t leach anything into your drink. This high quality stainless steel is used in the food processing industry for its durability and stain/rust resistance. Due to the non-reactive nature of stainless steel, no lining is necessary. On the other hand, aluminum bottles must have an epoxy or ceramic lining to prevent reactions between the metal and its contents.

Back2Tap stainless steel bottles are manufactured in China. After considerable searching, we were unable to find a manufacturer in the United States that could manufacture the bottles affordably. The stainless steel alloy is tested by the supplier and Back2Tap confirms those results with additional laboratory testing. Back2Tap also tests the bottles to confirm that there is no leaching into any type of liquid that it might contain.

The Cap

Back2Tap sports caps are made of polypropylene (plastic #5) and low density polyethylene (plastic #4). The caps have been tested by the factory and again by Back2Tap to confirm that there is no lead or other harmful substances that could leach into your drink.

Bottle and Cap Care

School Fundraiser

Back2Tap bottles are dishwasher safe although we recommend hand washing with a bottle brush and a mild dish detergent to help keep the logos looking bright and unfaded. Caps will last longer if they are handwashed.
