Why buy a Nickel Tested pod machine?

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in cases of nickel allergies, which usually manifest themselves as itching and dermatitis. This is why it is increasingly important to be able to develop Nickel Tested products, protecting the safety and quality of allergy sufferers.

Which products are Nickel Tested?

Nickel is a metal that belongs to the iron group. It can be found in soil, water and even air. Because of its constant presence, those who suffer from severe allergies do not have an easy time. To be Nickel Tested, therefore, products must not contain any trace of nickel.

As there is currently no clear-cut regulation on what companies have to declare about Nickel residues in their products, there are still few companies that carry out these tests, despite the fact that customers increasingly feel the need for reassurance.

In the absence of a permitted reference value in Italy, the Istituto Superiore di Sanità has indicated a maximum value of 1 ppm (parts per million) as a potential value to minimise the risk of allergic reactions in very sensitive individuals. A truly infinitesimal value, i.e. 0.0001%.

The Aroma Treatment Nickel Tested

We are continually searching for materials and ideas that can guarantee maximum satisfaction for our customers, and satisfy their needs.

Aware of the increasing number of customers who are allergic to Nickel, we have created a line of Nickel Free pod machines. The certification guarantees that the product is free of any trace of Nickel and other alloys such as Lead and Cobalt, guaranteeing an antibacterial function at the highest level.

Treatment Aroma Nickel Tested consists of applying an alloy to brass obtained without the use of raw materials that are harmful to the environment and humans such as:

  • Lead
  • Nickel
  • Chrome (VI)
  • Cobalt
  • Cyanide

This alloy also replaces classic nickel or electroless nickel-chromium deposition on copper and alloy articles to meet the limits imposed by current international regulations applied to water intended for human consumption. Thus guaranteeing 'zero' release of:

  • Lead
  • Nickel
  • Chrome (VI)
  • Cobalt

What are the main features of our Nickel Tested pod machines?

The main features of our nickel-free alloy provide numerous advantages, the main ones being:

  • Hypoallergenic

A concrete solution for all those who show an allergy or sensitivity to this material. In fact, it is not only through skin contact that allergic reactions can occur, but also nickel particles can be released into the water, which could be toxic over time.

  • Finish: silver-bright

Its brilliant silver colour characterises this special alloy. A peculiarity that not only involves a purely aesthetic factor, but the material denotes excellent corrosion resistance and eliminates any diffusion from underlying deposits/materials.

  • Zero metal transfer

The Aroma Nickel Free treatment eliminates any possibility of finding Lead, Nickel, Cobalt and Chrome VI within the metal.
