Can I use the New Active Top with all Wide Mouth bottles?
The New Active Top is exclusively for use with SIGG’s Wide Mouth bottles. Compatible bottles can be identified by the engraving (SIGG ACTIVE) on the screw thread. Bottles without the engraving can only be used with our standard wide mouth bottle adapter, which was not changed.
The ONE and only SIGG: how is a SIGG aluminium bottle made and what is it made of?
Since 1908, SIGG beverage bottles have been designed and manufactured at our factory in Switzerland, one of the most eco-friendly countries in the world. As part of our efforts to reduce our environmental impact, all our quality systems and processes are updated on an ongoing basis. All the materials used to make our products comply with the legal requirements in Europe and the USA. They are certified and do not contain any harmful chemicals. SIGG bottles are independently tested – to verify that our products live up to our promises.
Is it possible that the paint of my bottle flaks?
Regular quality tests ensure a very tough external coating. However, deep scratches or large dents may cause the external coating to crack. If moisture gets in between the coating and the outside of the bottle, the paint may start to flake. This does not in any way affect the bottle’s functionality.
Where are SIGG aluminium bottles manufactured?
All aluminium bottles with the SIGG brand name are manufactured at our own production plant in Frauenfeld (Switzerland). If you wonder how a SIGG bottle is made, check out this video
Can small dents / pressure marks on the bottle damage the internal coating?
No, as the internal coating is highly elastic. This means that dents do not cause tears in the coating layer and the SIGG bottle remains fully usable.
Can I use my SIGG bottle for fizzy drinks too?
Yes, of course. Our New Active Top has a special ventilation feature which ensures that the carbon dioxide escapes before drinking. For SIGG bottles with a screw cap, we recommend filling the bottle to no further than two centimetres below the lip and releasing the pressure before drinking by carefully unscrewing it.
Can I put sparkling apple juice in SIGG bottles?
Yes. In addition to other drinks, the internal coating has been specially tested with sparkling apple juice. The SIGG bottle passed the test with flying colours. Tip: Apple juice in the SIGG bottle should be consumed within 12 hours as heat and oxygen may cause the apple juice to start fermenting. This is a completely natural process which occurs in all bottles, regardless of the material.
Can SIGG bottles be used for boiling water?
No. Extreme heat can damage the exterior paint. There is also an acute risk of burns as aluminium is a good heat conductor.
I have noticed that the internal coating in my bottle has darkened and there are dark spots on the base. What can I do to combat this?
These discolorations are caused by sugar deposits. Tip: Rinse the bottle thoroughly with hot water. For heavy soiling, try using the SIGG cleaning brush or SIGG Bottle Clean cleaning tablets.
How can I clean my SIGG bottle properly?
Always wash your SIGG bottle by hand. Rinse out the bottle and bottle top with hot water after every use, leave open to dry and always store with the top off. For heavy soiling, try using SIGG Bottle Clean cleaning tablets and the SIGG cleaning brush. With children’s and sports tops, as well as the New Active Top, the individual pieces should also be washed regularly by hand. It is easy to take the tops apart, as our Care & Use information shows.
Can I wash my SIGG bottle in the dishwasher?
We advise you not to wash your bottle in the dishwasher. The aggressive detergents used in dishwashers may affect the exterior paint and internal coating of your bottle over time. The warranty does not cover any damage to your bottle that can be proven to result from washing it in a dishwasher. Due to the narrow opening of the classic SIGG bottle, dishwashers do not provide the best cleaning results anyway. To ensure you can enjoy your SIGG bottle for a long time, we recommend you clean it regularly by hand. Rinse out the bottle and bottle top with hot water after every use, leave open to dry and always store with the top off. Bottle top assembling
Are all bottle tops tight?
All SIGG tops normally remain watertight. However, even our tops and seals are subject to normal wear caused by intensive use. Tip: Do not clean bottle tops in the dishwasher. To wash your top, take it apart, rinse it out with hot water and leave it to dry naturally. Another tip is that it is often helpful to replace the bottle seal. These are available as a spare part from your dealer or in our webshop.
What is the SIGG high-performance EcoCare liner made of?
The new generation SIGG EcoCare liner is a high-performance liner which ensures a fresh, clean taste with no metallic aftertaste.

These are also found in many other types of packaging for well-known branded products in the food and drink industry.The raw materials used are both BPA- and phthalate-free and are also free of VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Our manufacturing process ensures that the new generation SIGG EcoCare liner has excellent durability and performance characteristics.All the materials used in the manufacture of the new SIGG EcoCare liner comply with all EU directives and FDA guidelines, such as the German Food and Feed Code (LFGB), TEU 1935/2004, TEU 10/2011, as well as US-CPSIA 2008 and FDA 21 CFR 175.300.

The bottom of my new bottle has an indentation, why?
This is the “register notch”. They are found on all SIGG bottles. The register notch is used to position the bottle during printing. This indentation does not affect the stability of your bottle.
