A new article by New York City-based architecture blog Zephyr explains the process behind a double insulated mug, which we all know looks like a double tube of duct tape.
If you’ve never done it, then read on to see how to build this amazing mug.
The double insulated foam insulation comes in a few sizes, from two to five inches in diameter.
The first size is usually about the size of a thumb, and the next size is a little smaller than that.
The foam is covered with duct tapers, and when the mug is assembled, the duct tape is stretched in front of the mug to create a double seal.
When the duct taper is pushed against the foam, it releases the duct taped foam.
The duct tape can be removed later, but it’s not needed, Zephry says.
