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.  


DETERMINATION OF INDIVIDUAL ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOC) AND IDENTIFICATION OF THE EMITTED COMPOUNDS BY GC-MS/FID

In autumn 2019 our laboratory of analytical chemistry purchased gas chromatograph Shimadzu GCMS QP 2020 NX with mass spectromecter and flame ionization detector, which is used for analysis of emission of organic substances (VOC) mainly for automotive materials.

Determination of VOC by this method meets the requirements:
- VW 50180 (CLP classification of VOC emission in accordance with Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 included)
- PV 3341
- VDA 277
- VCS 1027,2759


Laboratory is on the List of accepted service laboratories by the VW Group for test according to PV 3341!

Trade Fair AMPER 2020 - cancellation

Dear business friends, unfortunately, we have to inform you that the Fair Amper 2020 is cancelled due to the spreading disease COVID-19. For the fair administration is protecting the health of all involved an absolute priority. However, they would not be able to ensure this in the event of the fair being held at the original date, in particular by the inability to prevent the entry of persons at risk. We apologize for any inconvenience.


TERMINATION OF THE REDIRECTION OF OLD TELEPHONE NUMBERS

Dear clients,

As of 31 December 2019, will be TERMINATE THE REDIRECTION OF OLD TELEPHONE NUMBERS of ITC employees who moved from the former Zlín-Louky workplace building to the new Zlín, area Svit, Building 113 workplace.

New telephone numbers can be found on the website of specific service, in the CONTACTS section of the ITC website or on phone request.

For troubleshooting and any questions please contact the ITC’s infoline at +420 572779922.


Personal Protective Equipment

TESTING » TESTED PRODUCTS

Placing of personal protective equipment on the EU market cannot do without very thorough laboratory testing that verifies the degree of protection of the respective product or material against the declared risks. ITC offers a wide range of tests according to harmonized standards, which are used as underlying criteria to assess compliance with the requirements of the European Directive 89/686/EEC and of the Government Regulation No. 21/2003 Coll. laying down technical requirements for personal protective equipment.
