Fake Ekowool alert

ekowoolIt seems that mods and attys aren’t the only things being faked now according to this announcement that recently went up on the official Ekowool website:

We reveal the facts of EKOWOOL silica forgeries at: http://www.alibaba.com/ and http://www.ebay.com/ from Chinese suppliers.

We wish to inform all that the company EKOWOOL produces silica exclusively in Russia and Poland and that there are no sellers, distributors or manufacturers in China.

Besides alerting Ekowool fans of the difference in quality between original Ekowool and the cheaper counterfeits, the alert also goes on to warn users of the potential health risks involved in using this sub-par variant.

…the main problem is the impurity Al2O3 has a low melting point and is harmful because it collects in the lungs when inhaled.

The full announcement is available for viewing after the jump.


Original announcement can be found here.
