A: When we ran the required Prop 65 testing for the State of California, this item did not test to their standards for lead content. It did test positive for DEHP.
A: There is no California prop 65 warning on the packaging so I would believe there is no lead content. I have been using this wire for face masks for the last eight months and it works well. The only way to know for sure if there is any lead content is to contact Vigoro directly.
A: This wire is great for wiring clamshell style frames closed or bridging gaps in larger topiary frames. But it's not strong enough on its own to support the weight of a plant unless it is a small, very simple shape topiary. I don't know if it meets CA environmental restrictions.
A: The wire requires this Prop 65 warning: [Yellow or White Triangle with] Symbol WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm - www.P65Warnings.ca.gov Proposition 65 requires warning labels on products that may contain any of 800-plus chemicals or ingredients that the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) lists as a carcinogen or a reproductive toxicant. Proposition 65 is a “right to know” law. It does not prohibit the use of any chemicals in products. In fact, many of the chemicals listed under Proposition 65 are common everyday additives in manufacturing processes ( e.g., Ethylene Glycol-which is used in compressor shrouds as a flame retardant, lead-which is used to machine brass parts, etc.) and can be found in common consumer products such as jewelry, lamps, ceramic tableware, lead crystal glasses, electric cords, automobiles, and beauty products. California revised the labeling requirements required for products manufactured after August 30 2018. Midwest Air Technologies complies with these rules. As a result, you may see different warnings on our products, based on the manufacturing date. For example, on a product manufactured before August 30, 2018, you may see this warning “This product contains chemicals known in the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm” Whereas on the same product, manufactured after August 30, 2018, you might see this warning “WARNING: CONTAINS LEAD. May be harmful if eaten or chewed. May generate dust containing lead. Wash hands after use. Keep out of reach of children.” WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including lead, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov. Likely, the product has not changed in its composition, and the new warning was updated to comply with the new California rules. MAT Industries sells products to all 50 states, and has taken the position to place these warnings within our owner’s manual, or on the actual product or packaging, whether or not it ends up in California.
A: The wire is made of steel. It is very sturdy, yet pliable, making it a great option for plant ties.
A: Not sure what metal it is. But it’s not copper.
A: Yes. this would work for staking out small trees. Since it is not as soft as some other solutions, be careful that the wire does not cut into the tree and damage it.
