PF 2019

Dear Clients, we would like to thank you for your confidence in cooperation with our company during the past year.

We would like to use this opportunity to wish you good health, happiness and success in 2019, both personally and professionally.

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

New general director

Announcement of change in ITC management.

RNDr. Radomir Cevelik remains in the position of Board of Directors Vice President.

Determination of phthalic acid esters according to requirements of CPSC

In June 2018 analytical laboratory ITC accredited new procedure for determination of phthalic acid esters in consumer products according to requirements of CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) No. CPSC-CH-C1001-09.4. New standard came in force on April 25, 2018 and released old one No. CPSC-CH-C1001-09.3.

Piping systems, hoses

Testing » Tested products

Piping systems is a general denomination for a large group of products designed for both indoor and outdoor distribution of liquids and gases. From the point of view of introducing products to the market and ensuring minimum safety, piping systems fall under the Construction Products Regulation No. 305/2011 of 9 March 2011 (EU – CPR) repealing, with effect from 1 July 2013, Council Directive 89/106/EEC (Construction Products Directive – CPD). ITC laboratories are equipped with unique testing equipment to examine a wide range of mechanical and physical properties including health safety, functioning and safety tests.
