Contacting the Certification Division's executives while moving to new locations

Dear clients, In cases if you are not able to reach the specific employee from Certification Division, please contact head of certification activity on mobile phone. CONTACTS AVAILABLE HERE


Moving the Certification Division's workplaces to a new company space

Dear Clients, during the month of April 2019, certification division's workplaces will move into the new company space of ITC - Building 113, Svit area (address: Trida Tomase Bati 5264, entrance from Malotova street).

If you are going to plan a personal meeting with employees from certification division, confirm the meeting place with the specific employee.


New Mar resistence test equipment in ITC Zlin

Physical laboratory of ITC Zlin newly offers a possibility of special Mar resistance testing. This test simulates light scratching (e.g. by nails) at finished plastic parts of car interior. The criterium for evaluation is change in gloss before and after test. This new machine fully coresponds with requirements of specification PV 3974 (VW specification) or TPJLR 52.010 (Jaguar Land Rover specification) and others which are set on similar basis.


Depending on free capacity of the lab and number of tested specimens, the test could be finished within one week after receiving purchase order from our client.


For further details, price offer or booking a free test slot, feel free to contact Mrs. Lenka Nesvadbova lnesvadbova@itczlin.cz, +420 577 601 540

 

 


ITC services regarding ROHS 3

Since July 22, 2019 „RoHS 3“ (2015/863/EC) updated of so called “RoHS 2” directive (No. 2011/65/EC) will come in force, laying down extended requirements on electric and electronic devices.

Except for heavy metals (Pb, Cd, Hg, Cr VI+) and polybrominated flame retardants (PBBs and PDEs) four phthalic acid esters (phthalates) were newly added:
Bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, Butyl benzyl phthalate, Di butyl phthalate a Di iso butyl phthalate in the amount, not exceeded 0,1 w/w % in mass of homogenous material.
Problematic can be thus PVC softened material, like cable insulations then paintings, glues and softened plastics.

Laboratories of ITC are ready to determine all these substances. Years of experiences with such a type of analysis gives you quality assurance regarding analysis results. For request, please, contact:

Ing. David Grebeníček dgrebenicek@itczlin.cz
Ing. Iveta Řezníčková ireznickova@itczlin.cz


Online access to Toyota standard database

Upon agreement with TOYOTA company Institute for Testing and Certification, inc. got direct access to the database of Toyota standards, which are relevant to testing of automotive components, intended to TOYOTA cars. We believe that this step forward helps to perform better services towards you – our clients.

For physical tests, please, contact:
Lenka Nesvadbova, lnesvadbova@itczlin.cz or

new gas chromatograph in laboratory of analytical chemistry


In August 2018 our laboratory of analytical chemistry purchased a brand new gas chromatograph, mass spectrometer Shimadzu GCMS-QP2020, equipped by a thermal desorption unit TD-30, which is used for analysis of emissions of organic substances.



 



The spectrometer has a superior sensitivity for organic substances in orders of micro-grams per kg of sample. The system is mainly used for analysis of volatile organic substances (VOC) and condensable substances (FOG) according to the requirements of automotive standard VDA 278, but also for emission measurement of polymer samples to investigate additive system, smell, NIAS (not-intentionally added substances in plastics) etc.



 



Contact for such types of analysis: Franky Puype, phone: +420 577 601 703, e-mail: fpuype@itczlin.cz
