"The Fluidium is a really sexy lamp and it would be great to see it back again.  In glass would be nice and a multicolor glass would be very cool.  I frosted white glass base like the Opal in plastic would be beautiful. "

Alfred replied to perishingtardis's discussion Mathmos: White wax / clear liquid - limited run!!!
"I'd expect a silicone gasket (or similar) between the bottle and base and cap, but it certainly seems doable. I always thought the Fluidium would be a good candidate for a glass base because of the issues it had with heat."

Critter replied to perishingtardis's discussion Mathmos: White wax / clear liquid - limited run!!!
"True but it seems to me that if it is truly an issue to them they could simply plastic those components too like the new bottles.  "

Alfred replied to perishingtardis's discussion Mathmos: White wax / clear liquid - limited run!!!
"It seems pretty clear that reducing the risk of breakage to an absolute minimum was one of the primary design goals of the Neo and iO. That's much harder to do with a glass base and cap."

Critter replied to perishingtardis's discussion Mathmos: White wax / clear liquid - limited run!!!
"I would think that if a glass base and cap were made of borosilicate glass (like the bottles are)  there would no real issue from shattering due to heat differentials.  The only breakage that would occur would be due to impact and that…"

Hi there and welcome to Oozing Goo. I've had trouble with these Mathmos bulbs. One blew after just a handful of runs (copper heritage Astro) the other one fared far worse still, just 20 minutes or less (new Astro metallic). None too impressed although Mathmos did kindly send some replacement bulbs.
