These are inorganic in nature, non-toxic, heat and non-corrossive and has stability of up to 1300 degrees Celsius.
AGI glaspac has also used active silver technology, which is behind these germ-free products.

We added these antibacterial food glass jars and water bottles to our growing list of innovative product launches.
