Testing of hydraulic brake hose assemblies by Standard SAE J1401

Institute for testing and certification offers a new service in a field of automotivetesting of Hydraulic Brake Hose Assemblies by Standard SAE J1401. For detailed informations please contact our expert from Physical Testing Laboratory mr. Radek Matejka rmatejka@itczlin.cz.


New method for determination of organometallic complexes

Our analytical laboratory has implemented new method for determination of organometallic complexes (i.e. alkyl mercury) by cation chromatography, coupled to ICP-MS detection. This group of substances is represented for example by Trimerosal, used as fungicide or fungistatic agent. Such a substances can be limited for example in vaccines or contact lens solutions. Contact: Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry, fpuype@itczlin.cz, analyt@itczlin.cz


Determination of crack bridging properties

Laboratory of building materials has introduced new test device for test according to EN 1062-7 for “Determination of crack bridging properties”. On this device also another tests of paints, varnishes, coating materials and coating systems can be performed, list of standards is attached in this note. contact: rmikac@itczlin.cz


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.
