Does the Gallium "stick" to plastic. My Vial has cracked due to pressure increase inside of the bottle. It is not leaking yet, mostly because I have taken special care not to liquefy it. I have a few small plastic containers that would be suitable for holding the metal. I think the plastic is polystyrene with no rubber or color added. I don't want to transfer it into one of these containers if I would only be able to get half of it out because of it coating the inside. Or should I just stick with a small glass jar?

Put it into a plastic bag.
It will wet the bag, but you can easily freeze it and remove
the solid metal by peeling off the bag.

If you use a glass jar spray it with that stuff that is used for cooking to make pans non-stick. I used Pam spray and it worked great! It does not coat the sides at all.
