What is The Capsule Machine made of?
The type of plastic of the top and base of The Capsule Machine, as
well as the stand and tamper is ABS. ABS plastic material adheres to
requirements regarding contact with food and drinking water, which have
been established by the Food and Drug Administration, the Federal Health
Office, the den Regulations of the British Plastics Organization, and
the Bedarfsgegenständeverordnung as well as other national and
international regulations. ABS has good chemical and stress-cracking
resistance to inorganic salt solutions, alkalis, mineral acids (except
strong oxidizing acids), and some mineral, vegetable, and animal oils.
Petroleum-based oils, solvents, and paints SHOULD NOT BE USED, as they
will cause the material to craze. There is a possibility that the
plastic can be damaged by powders with a high oil content of eugenol.
Eugenol is an essential oil that is contained in herbs such as cloves,
nutmeg, cinnamon and bay leaf. The two springs of The Capsule Machine
are made of Delrin Acetal plastic. This material adheres to the
regulations established by the Food and Drug Administration for repeated
contact with food and the regulations established by The National
Sanitation Foundation for use in drinkable water. The spreader card is
made of stiff paper board. If you need to make an extra card you can make one by
cutting paper card stock or cover stock, or another material.
Made in the USA.
