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

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.
