ITC
Interlaboratory comparison measurements for the assessment of organic emissions according to Volkswagen Group standards

During spring/summer of 2021 ITC laboratory took a part in round robin comparison for emission tests of car interior materials according to Volkswagen standards, namely fogging, organic carbon emission and odour test acc. PV 3015, PV 3900 and PV 3341.


The round robin test was organised by German institute DRRR (Deutsches Referenzbüro für Ringversuche und Referenz¬materialien). Laboratory of ITC had performed very well in this comparison, with “great success” in all tested parameters.



For emission tests of car interior materials you can contact Dip. Ing. Jitka Bakalova, jbakalova@itczlin.cz, +420 577 601 453

Relocation of part of ATL 1004 - Physical Laboratory from the Central Laboratories of Louky Zlín to the workplace in the Svit 113th building

Dear clients. As of 09.11.2020, part of ATL 1004 - Physical Laboratory was completely relocated from the central laboratories of Louky Zlín to the ITC workplace in the Svit 113th building, Zlín. The original telephone numbers will be valid until 31.12.2020. At the same time, new telephone numbers will be launched next week, which will be published on the ITC website in the Contacts section. Now please contact specific employee of the physical testing laboratory by e-mail, mobile phone number, or you can contact Mrs. Jarmila Vyorálkova from the secretariat of the Physical Laboratory by phone +420 572 779 989 or e-mail jvyoralkova@itczlin.cz. Thank you for your understanding.


COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2020/1245 of 2nd September 2020 amending and correcting Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food entered into force on 23rd September 2020

This regulation has significantly changed the scope of evaluation of elements and primary aromatic amines and the way of evaluation of articles for repeated use – HERE you can find more information. ITC labs are already prepared to test and evaluate the articles according to new rules.

MORE INFORMATION


new X-ray fluorescence spectrometer RIGAKU NEX DE VS

The ITC Zlín laboratories put into operation a new X-ray fluorescence spectrometer RIGAKU NEX DE VS.

The instrument is designed for elemental analysis in solid and liquid matrices in the sodium-uranium range and is used mainly for the prove of the presence of heavy metals in products.

Heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium, arsenic, mercury and similar, are limited by various legislations, such as REACH, RoHS (electrical products), as well as these elements are limited in food contact products and toys.

The new spectrometer replaced old spectrometer Oxford Instruments ED2000Ag from 1998, which served a respectable 22 years.

For requirements for element analyses, such as RoHS, defectoscopy, alloy analyzes, etc. please feel free to contact us

Information on emission behavior tests according to the VW Group's VW 50180 standard for car interior parts


 

Dear clients, we would like to inform you that the VW Group requires the following approach for testing according to VW 50180 (emission behaviour of interior materials):

The requirements of the VW Group for this type of test must be followed. A list of approved laboratories for this type of test is available at www.vwgroupsupply.com/b2bpub/. ITC, as one of the approved laboratories for these tests, is obliged to follow the information it has received from the VW Group.

If the evaluated parts you send to us are intended for initial type approval (BMG - Baumustergenehmigung) and / or initial sample testing (EMP - Erstmusterprüfung), please inform us of this fact, as this affects the entire testing process, including pricing.

If you require VW 50180 emission tests for all other purposes, such as retesting, annual re-tests, regular quality control, etc., the process is slightly different from BMG and / or EMP tests.

We also need to know in advance if you want to determine carbon emissions according to the PV3341 standard only as total carbon, or if you also require emissions of individual organic substances. The performance of the test differs, both in terms of the instruments used, but mainly in the method of evaluation.

Thank you for the information that is necessary for the correct processing of your orders for emission behaviour according to the requirements of the VW Group.

ITC Team
