This paperboard product stores flat and easily folds into a functional spoon for sampling and retrieving materials in the laboratory. Coated to stand up to powders, gels and semi-solids, these spoons use 50–90% less material and space than the same quantity of plastic spoons. Can be used as weigh boats, eliminating the need for glassine sheets. Compostable (ASTM D6868) and recyclable at facilities that accept paper coffee cups, Bel-Art Disposable Paper Sampling Spoons are a low-cost way to go green in the laboratory. Note: Spoons are not meant for measuring exact quantities.
