Weigh Boatsarrow12Weigh Boats

Our weigh boats are useful for liquid, powder or granular samples. They made of antistatic polystyrene and will withstand temperatures up to 90°, as well as exposure to diluted acids, alcohols, bases and aqueous solutions. Their flexibility and smooth interior surfaces with rounded corners allow for easy decanting of powdered samples. Their flat bottoms ensure stability amd prevent tipping.

Weigh boats are available in the traditional square shape, as well as the new diamond shape, for easier pouring and more stable transfer of liquids. Originally designed as weighing containers, they have proven ideal for dispensing & storage and as disposable mixing/quick freezing trays. They are available in black or white for improved sample contreast/visibility and packaged in ultra-compact dispenser packs.
