Why platinum-cured silicone?

Is the material ridged enough to make pots?
Silicone is rated by shore hardness. Most silicone products such as pot holders and soft kitchen equipment are shore 40a-60a; they are made to be floppy. We are using platinum-cured silicone with a shore hardness of shore 80a. This means that pots will both be flexible and have the rigidity needed to hold shape. We have put a lot of time in finding the correct hardness scale to make these the best pots you will ever purchase. Some of our smaller products such as the 6 packs will be made from a slightly lower shore rated material to get the desired bendability needed to get your plants out without damaging them. Our material will far outperform any of those products for a lifetime.
How long will Indapots last?
Indapots are made from platinum-grade silicone. They are made to last as long as you are still gardening, then you can give them to your grandkids. and they can use them. Silicone is naturally a highly durable material they’re weather resistant, Temperature resistant (-80° – 450° F), fungus / bacterial resistant, can be crushed over and over. Throw it on the ground, jump on it, set your children loose with soccer balls, Indapots can take it all.
