What are the ingredients of poppers

Poppers contain nitrites (alkyl esters of nitrous acid). Depending on who you buy which poppers from, you will have a very different nitrite in your hand and run very different health risks. We regularly deal with the ingredients of poppers. On our site www.lederreiniger-online.de only poppers with the following ingredient are available, as this nitrite is considered by us to be less harmful to health:
  • Pentyl nitrite (CAS 463-04-7): The majority of our products contain this nitrite, as pentyl nitrite is classified as less harmful to health.
Poppers with the following ingredients are NOT available from us, as we classify these ingredients as carcinogenic or very toxic to inhale, among other things. We clearly distance ourselves from these nitrites and our recommendation to you: Hands off products with these nitrites:
  • Isopropyl nitrite (CAS 541-42-4): We do not sell these products because of the danger to life from inhalation.
  • Isobutyl nitrite (CAS 542-56-3): to be found e.g. in Quicksilver, RAM and Rave. We sell not these products as they are potentially carcinogenic.
There are other terms of ingredients, which are used and can also be found in Germany:
  • Amyl nitrite: This is a collective term
  • Alkyl nitrite: This is a collective term for isobutyl nitrite, pentyl nitrite, isopropyl nitrite, etc. We do not recommend poppers with these contents, as it is not clear which nitrite is actually contained here.
For leather cleaners, the ingredients are as follows:
  • Hexyl Nitrite (UFI V300-A06S-K00V-G02P)): New nitrite from the manufacturer Lockerroom in Canada. This nitrite is used for some of the 30ml bottles produced by the manufacturer Lockerroom. Equally or less harmful to health as pentyl nitrite. Therefore, we offer products with hexyl nitrite as well.
  • Canadian Pentyl Formula (EC number 951-169-0, RM): New substance from the manufacturer Lockerroom in Canada, based on pentyl nitrite. This nitrite is also less harmful to health and is very similar to pentyl nitrite.
Responsible handling of poppers is of great concern to us. We thank you for reading this article carefully.
