View our video on paneling and fluorination: Video Transcript: Hello and welcome to the The paneling on the bottles tends to indicate that there is an incompatibility between the product and the resin that the bottle is made out of.
Fortunately, there are solutions to these products so that we can continue to handle them in plastic.

Print-Friendly Copy of Report Press Release: Fluoride in Water Worsens U. Lead Crisis Over the past few weeks, the nation has watched in horror at the lead poisoning crisis unfolding in Flint, Michigan.
Fluorine atoms bond to the plastic, creating a permanent protective barrier.You can make the bottle structurally stronger by adding ribs or changing the shape of the bottle, like oil bottles that are square.But, maybe, making a mold is not an option for you. When they do that, they replace the hydrogen atoms on the outside of the surface with fluorine atoms, which are larger.These two factors were sufficient to create a major corrosion problem in Flint’s aging pipes, even without fluoridation.Fluoridation, however, may be making the problem worse.Although lead water pipes were banned in 1986, millions of Americans still drink tap water that travails through lead service pipes and many millions more drink water that passes through lead-containing brass fixtures — all with a complex brew of corrosive water treatment chemicals, including chlorine, chloramines, and fluorosilicic acid.Clean water activist Erin Brockovich stated recently that the U. is facing a “national water crisis.” Fluoridation is contributing to that crisis.Ever wonder why the sides of plastic container suck in after a long stay on the shelf?All extreme temperature and pressure changes excluded, the answer is called paneling. Contents in the untreated bottle on the left have compromised the plastic walls, causing the container to resemble a water bottle at 35,000 feet.Several lines of evidence suggest that FSA-spiked water is contributing to unsafe lead exposures in children.To be clear, Flint’s lead problem was primarily caused by the decision in April 2014 to obtain drinking water from the corrosive, chloride-laden Flint River, which was further compounded by the city’s inexcusable failure to add anti-corrosives to this water.
