Fusing Point Cup / Fusing Point Cup

Fusing Point Cup
Fusing Point Cup

Thanks to the discovery of a new material, Fusing point cup can not only help cool down hot drinks quickly but also keep at suitable temperature for drinking for a long time. The melting point of this material which is used in the interlayer of cup, is 65℃. When drinks are too hot, the material will melt itself by absorbing heat so as to cool down hot drinks. However,when liquid temperature is below 65℃, it will release the heat absorbed before to solidify itself,thus slowing down the cool-down progress.We easily know whether it's fit for drinking according to color of the rim.
