GalloTect™ is a protective jacket dedicated to gallon glass jug. Fujifilm Wako has developed GalloTect™ with the desire to add safety to daily testing and research activities, based on user feedback such as "when lifted the gallon glass jug, it smashed and cracked."
New color GalloTect™ made of biomass plastic is now available!
New color GalloTect™ (red) made of biomass plastic is now available. Please use it for identification of solvent types and grades, etc.
Received the iF Design Award 2022!
"GaroTect™" won the German "iF DESIGN AWARD 2022"!
The "iF DESIGN AWARD" is one of the world's prestigious awards for outstanding industrial design around the world, sponsored by the "iF International Forum Design GmbH".

Because they fit snugly in the reagent shelf, they could be used in the same way as gallon glass jug (non-protected). The gallon glass jugs are stable and can be used safely in student labs. The instructions were described in the box, so I was able to use them the first time without any problems.

The compact design does not interfere with storage and is easy to open and close. Gallon glass jugs do not collide with each other, which reduces stress during use. I am glad that the price range is affordable for consumables.

It is easy to open and close and the size is just right. I am satisfied with the design that allows me to see the label.

We used to store gallon glass jugs on shelves with yellow protective netting and in cardboard boxes, but they were sticking out from the shelves. By attaching the GalloTect, they now fit on the shelves and the lab is cleaner. It is also good that it is light and not bulky. I was impressed because until now, reagent manufacturers have not marketed products that focus on safety measures. I hope Fujifilm Wako will continue to add more products like this in the future

The gallon glass jugs are kept in a case in living room, and I no longer have to worry about the gallon glass jugs breaking or falling over when I put them in and out. It is not bulky and can be stored in the same place as before with GalloTect attached, making it easy to organize. It is also easy to use as it can be used with the GalloTect on. I will continue to use Fujifilm Wako's solvents in the future because they can be fitted with GalloTect.

Because the solvent storage is far away, we transport gallon glass jugs on a cart, but they sometimes rolled and cracked. By installing GalloTect, we no longer have to worry about cracks caused by tipping over.

There was no change in the feeling of use before and after attaching and detaching the GalloTect, and the operability was not reduced by attaching the GalloTect. The size is just right, and I was able to store gallon glass jug in my reagent shelf as is. The gallon glass jugs used to be stored in a messy way, but by attaching the GalloTect, they look much nicer. After participating in the campaign, I purchased about 20 additional GalloTects. Also, I used to transfer solvent to stainless steel containers to prevent gallon glass jugs from cracking, but they were quite expensive (30,000 to 50,000 JP yen), so I am glad to be able to purchase GalloTect for about 3,000 JP yen.

When the GalloTect was installed, it increased in size and although it could be stored in the reagent shelf, it could not fit in the batts that we normally use. I also found it difficult to open and close the lid.
The lid closes tightly so that it is secure even when tilted. The gallon glass jug is now more comfortable to hold when fitted with the GalloTect. In addition, the bottom of the gallon glass jug is square in shape, making it more stable and safer to use the gallon glass jug. We are very happy that the gallon glass jugs will be less likely to tip over, as health and safety awareness has increased over the years, especially in rooms where organic solvents are handled, where the concentration of solvents in the air increases due to spilled solvents from tipping over gallon glass jugs. Also, with the GalloTect installed, I can now easily see which gallon glass jugs have been opened.
Make gallon glass Jug hard to fall over!
In the fall test*1, a normal gallon bottle fell at an angle of about 26 °, but by putting on GalloTect™, it became difficult to fall even at the same angle.
A test*1 of pulling from both ends of the GalloTect column revealed that it was durable against a force of 350 N (about 35 kg).
*1: Conducted at JAPAN TESTING LABORATORIES Co., Ltd.
The lid was opened and closed 200 times to confirm that there is no loosening!
Carry out solvent resistance test with 11 kinds of solvents!*2
*2: Resistance to acid and base solutions has not been confirmed.
Body material: polypropylene (PP)
All-plastics not requiring waste separation!
A resin rivet was adopted for the screw portion. When discarding, a troublesome separation is not necessary!

Just fit your reagent shelf!
We focused on the design and eliminated the bulkiness thoroughly. The conventional reagent shelf can be stored gallon glass jug with GalloTect™.
Available in two colors!
Available in red and white. Please use for identification of solvent type, grade, etc.
Biomass plastic is used as material!
GalloTect™ (red) is made from biomass plastic. Biomass plastic is a "renewable organic resource" made from plant-derived raw materials. *3
Fujifilm Wako aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 15 t/year by 2030.
*3: GalloTect™ (white) is made of regular PP.
