The Polycarbonate (PC) for the body, the high temperature resistance silicone for the inside, a combination of soft and hard material is used to make it.

While the hard body of the BM-Cup trembles with hands, the soft inside materials waves with the outside for inertia. The waves soften the impact of water, which avoids the spills.
