刚看blog的访问统计，有人搜索“爱乐压是什么材料做的”，关于， AeroPrsess / 爱乐压，是用什么材质做的， 在此简单讲一下：
关于 AeroPrsess / 爱乐压 , 是用什麼材質做的，我有问了下台湾总代理的孙先生，下面是他给我的邮件回复：
爱乐压本身 , 及压筒 : 是聚脂 PET (Copolyester) .
爱乐压過濾紙的蓋子 , 以及濾紙架 , 攪拌片 , 漏斗 : 是聚丙烯 Polypropylene (PP)
爱乐压橡膠活塞頭 : thermoplastic elastomer 熱可塑性彈性體 .
所有的材料經過美國食品藥物管理局批准 , 可直接用於食物接觸的使用 .
All of these materials are FDA approved for use in contact with food.

Materials used in the AeroPress® coffee maker
The AeroPress is made of three different plastics. The clear chamber and plunger are made ofcopolyester. The hard black filter cap, filter holder, funnel, and stirrer are made ofpolypropylene. The rubber like seal on the end of the plunger is made of a thermoplastic elastomer. All of these materials are FDA approved for use in contact with food. None of these materials contain bisphenol-A (BPA) or any phthalates, chemicals that have been in the news lately because of possible health effects.
Aerobie has been shipping AeroPress coffee makers made of the materials described above since August 1st, 2009. Prior to that date, the clear chamber and plunger were made of a very special high humidity and temperature resistant polycarbonate. Polycarbonate does not contain phthalates but it does contain BPA. Even though the FDA and other governmental agencies around the world approve polycarbonate for use in contact with food, we had an independent lab test coffee brewed in a well used AeroPress to determine how much, if any, BPA leaches into coffee brewed in a polycarbonate AeroPress. Absolutely none was detected. Given that result, one could ask why we switched to using copolyester. The answer is simple. The use of copolyester removes any perceived risk from BPA and it is more attractive.
We frequently get asked if we plan to make a glass or stainless steel AeroPress coffee maker. Interestingly we also receive frequent emails from consumers thanking us for not making the AeroPress of glass. I suspect those people are tired of breaking glass coffee carafes or glass coffee presses. The facts are that glass is fragile, heavy, and expensive to manufacture with the tolerances required for the AeroPress. People then ask how about stainless steel. Unfortunately stainless steel is heavy, expensive, and opaque and anyone that has used an AeroPress knows that transparency is helpful when using an AeroPress coffee maker. We therefore have no plans to make a glass or stainless steel AeroPress coffee maker. We believe that the AeroPress coffee maker we currently manufacture is superior to a glass or stainless steel AeroPress coffee maker.
Even though there is no reason for concern, people who are nevertheless concerned about using an AeroPress made of polycarbonate can take advantage of our spare parts policy. Just call the Aerobie Customer Service Department at 1-650-493-3050 and you can purchase replacement parts for any part of the AeroPress including the plunger and chamber.
