Two drinking water bottle sizes; 10 Fl. Oz. and 16.9 Fl. Oz., were crushed across a range of temperatures, from 32  to 125 . Three sets of bottles were placed in a temperature chamber at 150 , in refrigerator, and in freezer for about three hours. Another set of bottles were kept at room temperature. Bottle compression strength reduced at a rate of about 0.5 and 0.3 pound per 1  increase in temperature for the 10 and 16.9 Fl. Oz. respectively. Bulging was observed at the bottom of the 16.9 Fl. Oz. bottles. It was stabilized at about 5 hours under 150 . However, leaks occurred shortly after the temperature was elevated to 170 . In addition, the strength per bottle of a 24-bottle pack was found to be about 25% more than that of single bottle strength.
