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:

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 ICP spectrometer in ITC labs

Analytical laboratory has recently purchased new ICP spectrometer Agilent 5800. The spectrometer is intended for determination of elements in water solutions, leachates and mineralisates. It is used mainly for evaluation of food-contact materials, products for children, material analysis of plastics, rubbers and metals. Spectrometer can be also used for determination of elements, which are limited in electro-products by RoHS 3 directive. High sensitivity enable evaluation of products according to many national and European legislations.  


Laboratory of Footwear and PPE

TESTING » ACCREDITED TESTING LABORATORY

The testing laboratory is the only specialised institution in the Czech Republic, focusing on the comprehensive testing of footwear and accessories, personal protective equipment and related materials. The department follows the Bata shoemaking tradition and the activities of the former Research Institute for Leather Manufacturing.

 


Manual for clients

       

PRODUCT SCOPE OF LABORATORY

  • materials
    • leather, furs, synthetic materials, textiles, plastics, rubber, cardboard, etc.
  • semi-finished products, components
  • soles, stiffeners, insoles, laces, toes, uppers, etc.
  • footwear
  • footwear (work, sports, outdoor, social, domestic, children’s, etc.)
  • haberdashery
  • gloves, handbags, suitcases, hats
  • leather garments and fur products
  • personal protective equipment
    • PPE for head protection (hard hats, helmets, hoods, etc.)
    • PPE for eye protection (goggles)
    • PPE for hand protection (gloves, pads)
    • PPE for leg and foot protection (shoes, shins)
  • floor coverings, floor surfaces and materials for their treatment

The laboratory has approximately 100 accredited methods that are used in accordance with client’s needs. This work site is mainly involved in the verification of the mechanical and physical properties and colour constancy to the full extent of the standard requirements for footwear materials, footwear and haberdashery.

TESTING

  • strength tests (tensile strength and tensibility, tear strength, strength in the other tear, strength in extraction of stitches, coherence of the material layers, the strength of sewn joints etc.)
  • Tests of the material surface treatment (treatment against the wiping, resistance against the repeated flexure, preparation adhesion, abrasion resistance - Martindale, constancy of material preparation on the artificial light, resistance of preparation against the higher temperature, against the push, testing of grain break, resistance of preparation against organic solvents etc.)
  • tests of sorbtive characteristics (vapour permeability, absorption and desorption, water absorbability etc.)
  • testing of finished products
  • water permeability, the stiffness of shoes, the strength of the attachment of the heels and soles, strength of sewn joints, energy absorption of the footwear, resistance to compression, carrying load, weather resistance, features of sports balls, characteristics of the straps for prams, corrosion of metal components, testing of insulation qualities in hot and cold conditions
  • assessment of anti-skid qualities of floor surfaces and of footwear
  • testing of other mechanical and physical properties of materials and products
  • measurement of dimensions - thickness, width, length, height, weight, hardness, resistance to the impact of liquids, the properties during bulging, torsional stiffness, measurement of electrical resistance etc.
  • chemical analyses, testing of health safety (in cooperation with the analytical laboratory)
  • flammability, ageing tests (in collaboration with the physical laboratory)
