Does anyone have a full test result list for SIGG or Klean Kanteen?
When I google I end up with more message board discussions: I followed the link to the german testing site but once I had it translated I found that I would have to buy the test results.
" I just downloaded a test result for aluminium bottles from www.oekotest.de
. Stiftung Oekotest is a German testing agency, like Consumer Reports, but everything is tested for environmental friendliness and health concerns. The SIGG aluminium bottle they tested received very good ratings: it leaks minimal traces of aluminium at room temperature, more at higher temperatures (thats why you should protect it from heat and not use it with hot drinks as stated in the manual that comes with the bottle), there was no bisphenol A found, no diethylhexyphthalate, no vinyl. With this it did quite good in the test. They consider traces of aluminium less dangerous than the stuff plastics usually leak."
"I forgot to mention that the Sigg bottles were tested with a slightly acidic solution, as it is common in Germany to mix sparkling water with fruit juice as a refreshing drink. Under those circumstances the bottles leaked aluminium (aluminium leaks with acidy and fatty foods)."
