Materials & Construction

Here at Contigo®, we take health and quality very seriously. All of our plastic water bottles are BPA free and many are also made from FDA approved Eastman Tritan™. Eastman Tritan™ is far more durable than a traditional plastic and helps resist against stains and odors.

Our stainless steel water bottles are also BPA free and are made from food-grade stainless steel.

Our stainless steel travel mugs are made out of food-grade stainless steel. They’re also BPA free.
Thermalock™ vacuum insulation locks in the temperature for hours. On these types of bottles and mugs both inner and outer walls are made of stainless steel, and the air between those walls is removed to create a highly-insulated barrier. This form of insulation delivers the best hot or cold retention possible and also prevents condensation and sweating. Your hot beverages will stay piping hot for up to 5 hours and your cold drinks will stay refreshingly cold for up to 18 hours.
Well certainly! Thermalock™ vacuum insulation on your stainless steel travel mug will help keep your drinks cold for hours.
Unfortunately no, the components in your water bottle are not engineered to withstand the heat from hot beverages.
Sweaty palms should be saved for first dates and playoff games – not from holding your water bottle. Double-wall construction means that the water bottle or travel mug body features both an inner and outer plastic wall which helps reduce sweating and condensation.
