Materials: Helix Thermal & Mixed

The Helix Range is a modular, screw fit, cup-to-bottle system that lets you twist together the Helix cup into a classic bottle, or an insulated flask.
 

Cup

18/8 food-grade electropolished stainless steel

Benefits

  • Double-walled and vacuum sealed for thermal insulation, to keep your drink hot (or cold) for longer, and to protect touch.
  • Electropolished stainless steel to enjoy the full flavour of your drink. We use the highest quality food-grade stainless steel 18/8 (304) so there is no metallic after taste, meaning a ceramic painted coating isn't necessary.
  • Volumes and sizes replicating industry standard single-use cups for ease of cafe workflow and speed of service. 
  • Opens with a half twist for easy lid removal, providing a large opening to allow easy addition of coffee, boba, ice or fruit.

Material information

Stainless steel 18/8 (also referred to as type 304) is the most common grade of stainless steel used for food preparation and dining due to its high quality, robust durability and non-corrosive nature. It’s known for its durability and reuse longevity and is a 100% recyclable resource without degradation.   

Due to its long life, high value and increasing demand, the average recycled content in current global stainless steel production is 25%. The stainless steel used for our cups comes from South Korea, a mill close to our manufacturer in China and is 35% recycled scrap content.  

Electropolishing creates a microscopically smooth, mirror-like surface (compared to polished). It provides extra protection from corrosion, metallic taint and reduced opportunity for bacterial growth, and removes the need for an interior coating or lining.

Part manufacture

China

Manufacture waste

Stainless steel parts that do not meet quality standard are collected and sold back to the mill for use in production. Scrap metal content is mixed with raw material as standard industry practice.

Assembly waste

Customer returns and reject parts from assembly are collected and sent to commercial recycling. Along with other collected metal material, they are shipped to Germany for reprocessing. Due to material long life, high value and increasing demand, the average recycled content in current global production is 25%.

Scrap is valuable for the raw elements it contains, such as chromium and nickel, and for the reduced raw material required.

End of life

Stainless steel – even with plastic, can be recycled in household waste collection services. The paint finish does not impact recyclability.

Twist Fit Lid

Lid: polypropylene plastic (PP) #5  
Lid gasket: silicone (synthetic plastic elastomer) #7

Benefits

  • Fully sealed twist fit sipper lid, with a dual plug mechanism that seals drinking hole from underneath when top plug is in closed position, and by silicone gasket at the rim.
  • Designed for drinking pleasure on the go and as a sipper lid. A concave shape that allows room for your nose when drinking and mouthpiece sized for optimal liquid flow, which ensures drinking pleasure on the go.
  • Quick to screw on – with a half twist, fitting easily into a busy service environment.

Material information

Polypropylene is one of the most widely used plastics for reusable food safe products and is free from BPA, BPS, phthalates including DEHP, lead and cadmium. It’s a tough, rigid plastic with a high melting point, so it can be heated to very high temperatures, making it fit for purpose for long term reuse. The precision of injection moulding and the low embodied energy during manufacture means it has low carbon emissions.

Silicone provides a high-performance mechanical seal thanks to its thermal properties, flexibility and compression capability. Silicone is not a natural material, but a synthetic elastomer (soft plastic). The silicone manufacture process involves extracting silicon from silica, passing it through hydrocarbons (fossil fuels) then mixing with other chemicals. 

Part manufacture

Lid – Australia

Lid Gasket – China

Manufacture waste

Polypropylene reject stock, extrusion and tool part waste is ground into pellets and used to manufacture products that are not required to be food safe, or colour matched.  

Silicone reject stock at point of manufacture is desiccated and made into silicone oil, which is used in a range of industrial applications.

Assembly waste and customer returns

Any customer returns and reject polypropylene parts from assembly are collected and returned (sorted by material) to the manufacturer to be pelletised and used to manufacture products not required to meet food safety standards.

We collect any reject silicone gasket stock and are storing these in Australia and the United Kingdom whilst we search for a local solution.

End of life

Polypropylene is readily recycled via most household waste service collections worldwide. Please place in your recycle bin for collection. 

Less than 10% of all plastic ever produced has been recycled. Currently, 40% of all plastic produced globally is for single-use packaging. Reusable solutions are the only way forward to meaningfully reduce waste and pollution.

Silicone requires a dedicated commercial recycling collection which is not offered by residential curbside collection. Discarded bands go to landfill.

Base Plug

A modified polypropylene (PP) clear plug base body provides a rigid structure, while the overmoulded dark grey thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) creates a seal. The combination of both materials means the plug base is a polypropylene alloy, reclassified from the traditional polypropylene (PP) #5 to #7 plastic. 

Benefits

  • Seals from underneath when top plug is in closed position, preventing spills while in transit. 
  • Vertically lowers as top plug opens, to allow optimal liquid flow.
  • Overmoulded seal provides soft flexibility and compression required for sealing.

The TPE inner seal provides the soft flexibility and compression to ensure necessary sealing. TPEs are most commonly a mix of plastic and rubber. They have the properties of rubber but are processed the same way as plastic and are recyclable.

Packaging

100% FSC certified board, using soy based inks. Recycled cardboard cradle insert, to protect glass in transit. Tells the story of the brand to inspire reduce and reuse.

Benefits

  • In addition to telling the story of our products and their benefits, we design packaging that walks the line - avoiding breakage and protecting products in transit while minimising material to reduce waste.
  • Where possible, we work with customers to ship orders bulk packed and semi assembled, without retail packaging, to reduce waste.

Carton packaging material
Our recycled cardboard cartons are designed to maximise the number of product configurations, and are made in Australia and the UK to service local markets. All packaging materials are reused within our supply chain and packing processes. The cartons themselves are used first to store and ship components to us from our manufacturers and are then reused in our assembly locations to ship products to our customers.

Part manufacture
Australia and the United Kingdom

Manufacture waste
100% of all retail and carton packaging reject stock and manufacture offcuts are collected and recycled.

Assembly waste
When packing orders, we reuse stock cartons and utilise cardboard waste as space filler. Any damaged cartons, reject retail boxes or unused packaging are commercially recycled.

End of life
All retail packaging and cardboard cartons are readily recycled via household waste service collections worldwide. Please place in your recycle bin for collection.
