Why buy a Nickel Tested pod machine?

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in cases of allergy attributable to nickel, which usually manifests itself with itching and dermatitis. This is why it is increasingly important to be able to develop Nickel Tested products, protecting safety and quality even for allergy sufferers.

What are Nickel Tested products?

Nickel is a metal that belongs to the iron group. It can be found in soil, water and even the air. Due to its constant presence, severe allergy sufferers do not have it easy. To be Nickel Tested, therefore, the products must not contain any traces of nickel. Since at the moment there is no clear and sharp regulation on what companies must declare on the Nickel residues in their products, there are still few companies that carry out these tests, despite customers increasingly feel the need to be reassured. In the absence of a reference value allowed in Italy, the Istituto Superiore di Sanità has indicated the maximum limit of 1 ppm (parts per million) as a potential value to minimize the risk of reactions allergies in very sensitive individuals. A truly infinitesimal value, i.e. 0,000001%.

The Aroma Nickel Tested treatment

We are constantly looking for materials and ideas that can guarantee maximum satisfaction in our customers, satisfying their needs. Aware of the increasing number of customers allergic to Nickel, we have created a line of Nickel Free pod machines. The certification guarantees that the product has no traces of Nickel and other alloys such as Lead and Cobalt, guaranteeing the same antibacterial function at the highest level. The treatment Aroma Nickel Tested consists in applying on the brass an alloy obtained without resorting to the use of raw materials harmful to the environment and to humans such as:
  • Lead
  • Nickel
  • Chromium (VI)
  • Cobalt
  • Cyanide
This alloy also replaces the classic deposit of electrolytic nickel or nickel-chromium on copper and alloy products, to meet the limits imposed by current international regulations applied to water intended for human consumption. Thus ensuring the “zero” release of:
  • Lead
  • Nickel
  • Chromium (VI)
  • Cobalt

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

The main features of our nickel free alloy allow you to obtain numerous advantages, among the main ones we find:
  • hypoallergenic
A concrete solution for all those who show an allergy or sensitivity to this material. In fact, it is not only with skin contact that allergic reactions can occur, but nickel particles can also be released into the water, which could be toxic over time.
  • Finish: silver-bright
Its bright silver color characterizes this special alloy. A peculiarity that not only involves a purely aesthetic factor but the material denotes excellent resistance to corrosion and eliminates any type of diffusion deriving from the underlying deposits/materials.
  • Zero transfer of metals
The Aroma Nickel Free treatment eliminates any possibility of finding Lead, Nickel, Cobalt and Chrome VI inside the metal. So you just have to choose one of ours coffee machines to Nickel Tested pods and delight you every day with a hot and creamy espresso.
