The jars sold by TKB Trading, LLC are made from Polystyrene (PS). It tolerates temperatures from 40 - 200 F and has a high impact resistance, rigidity, and clarity. IMPORTANTLY: IF YOU ADD AN OIL TO YOUR POWDERS DO NOT USE THESE JARS. Oil causes PS plastic to degrade and the jars will very quickly form cracks and start to fall apart.
PS is a recyclable material with the plastic number of "6". We cannot guarantee that any container will function properly with your particular product. It is the customer's responsibility to do any testing or product compatibility. TKB Trading, LLC does not guarantee that any container will function with your particular product, please test your products with each container before filling large runs!
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE SIFTERS FOR THE Low Profile 25 Jar BASES DO NOT COME with the seal attached. You will receive the sifter seals separately and will need to stick them on yourself!
All Jars are described as being "5 gram" or "30 gram" or so-forth, but this is an industry description and is based on the amount of PACKED and POURED material which will fit into the container (for example, a cream foundation). Many of our customers are containerizing loose powder. The jars will hold significantly less loose powder by weight.
Loose powders vary in weight (oxides for example are much heavier than micas), the following information is approximate only and based on a measure of Black Mica which is a mica of medium weight.
Measurements are also approximate.
