The old Speedfit ones from Homebase warned about using with anti-corosive
additives but the latest range have had this warning removed.
Who manufactures the B&Q ones?
They are probably one of the major ranges repackaged.
They should be able to advise.

Yes - I noticed that too!
I don't know. On the B&Q pack, it said "suitable for central heating
systems". It was later on, after reading an old Homebase package that
I started worrying. I hope the B&Q ones are made of a better plastic.
I think the Homebase ones warned against letting additives come into
contact with the fitting. It didn't mention highly diluted additives,
such as what you get flowing around the system... Those Homebase packs
didn't say "suitable for central heating systems, like the B&Q ones
do. Luckily, I didn't use any of the old Homebase fittings.
