      H, I am a 2nd year student studying Mechanical Engineering. As part of our design module we are doing a feasibility analysis into a 'disposable Fold-flat cup with an integrated lid' which is to replace existing coffee cups.
      I understand their are some patents for similar products which would have an impact on the design but are there any British standards/ safety requirements in place for coffee cups?

      I have very little experience in the design/materials/manufacturing of disposable cups so any help would be much appreciated.

      Thanks, Matt

      Matt,
      Make sure you print 'Contents may be hot' on whatever you come up with - this world is full of f**kwits.
      And try not to print it on the bottom of the cup... You should be good to go after that...:)
