Float is a thermos with an innovative sealing system, capable of maintaining the liquid at the desired temperature for much longer than common bottles. It is intended for both domestic users and high-circulation environments, and holds 1,75 l.
With common thermoses, frequent use causes the liquid to lose temperature faster due to air intake. Float solves this problem by means of a floating element, which eliminates the interface between the drink and the air inside the thermos. It also contains a glass ampule which, thanks to vacuum sealing and a thin layer of silver nitrate, greatly reduces heat transfer though radiation and conduction.
