Industrial & Environmental 3 Test Kit
The energy patterns of more chemicals including bisphenol A, PCB's and various plastics, etc. some of which are found in breast milk. 25 vials with important chemicals - we just do not know the long term effect of these chemicals.
(When ordering any kits remember to order storage boxes for the vials. If required, go to our test kit accessories section)
IE 51 Adipic Acid
Used in the manufacture of nylon, polyester, polyurethane, polypropylene and PVC. Also used in detergents.
IE 52 Aluminium Hydroxide / Aluminium Trihydrate / Aluminium Hydrate
Used in vaccines, manufacture of glass and glazes, as a flame retardant in plastics, in paper manufacture, printing inks, detergents, for waterproofing fabrics, in mouthwashes and deodorants. Also used as a carrier of artificial colourings particular for uses involving colouring oils and fats, or where the product does not contain sufficient water to dissolve the colour. (Would not need to be shown in the list of ingredients when used as a colour carrier.
IE 53 Bisphenol A / BPA
Major constituent of plastics. Also used as a sealant and in adhesives including in dentistry. An endocrine disruptor, which can mimic the body's own hormones. Worrying levels found in breast milk and in people generally. In 2007, a consensus statement by 38 experts on bisphenol A concluded that average levels in people are above those that cause harm to animals in laboratory experiments. In utero exposure to Bisphenol-A may adversely affect male genital development, according to a Kaiser Permanente study published online in the journal Birth Defects Research (August 2011).
IE 54 1,3-Butadiene
An important industrial chemical used as in the production of synthetic rubber.
IE 55 2-Chloro-1,3-Butadiene / Chloroprene
Involved in the production of polychloroprene/neoprene.
IE 56 Dibromacetic Acid / DBA
Found in drinking water when chlorine disinfectants combine with naturally occurring organic matter.
IE 57 Ethylene Dichloride / 1,2-Dichloroethane
Used in the manufacture of vinyl chloride. Also an additive in petrol and so found in vehicle exhaust fumes.
IE 58 Glutaraldehyde
Glutaraldehyde-based disinfectants used for cleaning and sterilising equipment and surfaces in hospitals, dentists, etc. Used in manufacture of paper packaging that will be in contact with food.
IE 59 Heptane
A solvent used in the production of oils, and in manufacture of adhesives.
IE 60 Hexachlorobenzene / Perchlorobenzene
A chemical intermediate and a solvent for pesticides. Has been identified in breast milk. Research suggests it may be carcinogenic for humans.
IE 61 Hexane
A widely used industrial chemical used, for example, in pesticide manufacture, as a cleaning agent in the printing industry, and as a solvent for varnishes and adhesives.
IE 62 Perfluorononanoic Acid / PFNA
Used in industrial processes; some industrial chemicals may degrade into this chemical. A developmental toxicant and an immune system toxicant.
IE 63 Perfluorooctanesulfonic Acid / PFOS / Perfluorooctane Sulfonate / Heptadecafluorooctanesulfonic Acid
Used to make fire-fighting foams, in textiles, paper, and leather; in wax, polishes, paints, varnishes, and cleaning products for general use; in metal surfaces, and carpets.
IE 64 Perfluorooctanoic Acid / PFOA / C8/ Perfluorocaprylic Acid
Used in mixing process for dyes, detergents and personal care products; non-stick cookware and stain- and water-resistant coatings for carpets and fabrics. Detected in the blood of general populations in the low parts per billion range where single studies have associated it with infertility, higher cholesterol, and thyroid disease. In highly exposed groups, some studies have associated PFOA exposure with birth defects, increased cancer rates, and changes to lipid levels, the immune system and the liver.
IE 65 Phthalate Mix
Used to make plastics softer and more flexible. Wide spread health concerns. This vial contains Benzyl butyl phthalate, Bis(2-ethylhexyl) adipate, Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, Dibutyl phthalate, Diethyl phthalate, Dimethyl phthalate and Dioctyl phthalate.
IE 66 Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB) Mixed A group of chemicals that have been banned but are still found in the environment, electrical equipment, wall coverings, paints and plastic. Have been found in breast milk. Couples with high PCB levels may experience difficulty getting pregnant. This vial contains 2-Chlorobiphenyl, Decachlorobiphenyl ,3,3′-Dichlorobiphenyl, 2,2′,3,4′,5,5′,6-Heptachlorobiphenyl, 2,2′,3,3′,6,6′-Hexachlorobiphenyl, 2,2′,3,3′,4,4′,5,5′,6-Nonachlorobiphenyl, 2,2′,3,3′,4,4′,5,5′-Octachlorobiphenyl, 2,3′,4,5′,6-Pentachlorobiphenyl, 2,2′,4,4′-Tetrachlorobiphenyl and 2,4,5-Trichlorobiphenyl.
IE 67 Polyethylene / Polythene / PE
Most common plastic. This vial contains high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and low-density polyethylene (LDPE). Used to make milk bottles, washing up liquid bottles, children's toys, carrier bags, bin liners and industrial bags, Also used extensively for consumer packaging including shrink film and squeezy bottles for food, personal care products, etc.. Also found as carpet backing and in joint replacements.
