ITC
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

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.

More information concerning phthalate testing are available here


FachPack 2018

Dear business friends, we invite you to visit our exposition at the International Trade Fair for the packaging industry FachPack 2018, which will be held 25. 9. – 27. 9. 2018 in Nuremberg. Hall 9, Stand no. 9-211. Vouchers for entry are available, if you are interested, please contact Mrs Ing. Barbora Hajkova, email: bhajkova@itczlin.cz 


Analytical laboratory had implemented new methods for testing of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from car interior parts according to Hyundai and Toyota requirements, namely

Hyundai Engineering Standard - MS300-55 - Determination of volatile organic compounds from moulded parts in the vehicle interior

and

Toyota Engineering Standard TSM 0508G – Volatile component measurement method using sampling bag

Tests are using sampling bags for emission tests, followed by chromatography determination of emitted substances.

RoHS, Waste

Testing » Tested products

In accordance with the applicable legislation in force, waste materials are assessed, analysed and classified in order to ensure that its handling does not result in permanent damage to the environmental interests. Regulation of waste toxicity is also related to the RoHS Directive defining the rules for the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment, in order to reduce risks for the period when an article becomes waste.

 

Client's Handbook (PDF)        

WASTE ASSESSMENT

  • Waste assessment pursuant to Act No. 185/2001 Coll., on Waste, as amended
  • Leach tests according to the relevant decrees implementing the Waste Act
  • Analyses of solid waste according to the requirements of Decree No. 383/2001 Coll., as amended

ITC SERVICES IN CONNECTION WITH THE ROHS DIRECTIVE:

  • What is RoHS?
    • Restriction of the use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) is based on the DIRECTIVE 2002/95/EC of the EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 January 2003 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The Directive imposes an obligation on the manufacturers/importers of electrical and electronic equipment in categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10 to ensure that any electrical and electronic equipment put to the market after 30 June 2006 does not contain selected toxic substances.
  • List of forbidden substances
    • Cadmium
    • Mercury
    • Lead
    • Hexavalent chromium
    • Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)
    • Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE)
    • Decabromdiphenyl ether
  • What products are subject to RoHS?
    • RoHS requirements apply to final products falling under the scope of this Directive. This means that all components and component combinations within an assembly sub-category may not contain any of the forbidden substances at a level exceeding the maximum concentration.
      • Household electrical appliances
      • Telecommunication and computer equipment
      • Consumer electronics
      • Lighting equipment
      • Power tools
      • Toys, sports equipment
      • Automatic dispensers
      • Light bulbs
      • All electrical and electronic equipment with a voltage rating under 1,000 V (please note that there are exceptions)
  • RoHS2
    • The scope of RoHS o RoHS2 has been expanded since 2011 (Directive 2011/65/EU of European Parlament and of the council from 8th July 2011,) which has same limits as RoHS, only expands groups of products about:
    • Medical devices (valid from 2014)
    • In-vitro diagnostic medical devices (valid from 2016)
    • Monitoring and control equipment (valid from 2014)
    • Industrial and measuring equipment (valid from 2014)
    • All electrical and electronic equipment not covered by any categories mentioned above (valid from 2019)
    •  
  • List of restricted substances
    • Cadmium (0,01%)
    • Mercury (0,1%)
    • Lead (0,1%)
    • Hexavalent chromium (0,1%)
    • Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) (0,1%)
    • Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) (0,1%)
    • Decabromdiphenyl ether
    • Exceptions are given in the annex No.IV of the directive, annex No.2 Government order
      No. 481/2012 Sb.
    •  
  • Responsibilities
    • A new directive introduces a wide range of procedures and responsibilities as it´s conformity assessment of products with basic directive requirements, CE marking, conformity statement, identification and rating of the product, administration of technical documentation for 10 years and proving of compliance testing or rating in accordance with harmonized standards.

    • The manufacturer of equipment must ensure that his products do not include six restricted substances. Directive does not edit a production of individual components and spare parts. The manufacturer must ensure that none of the components his product do not contain restricted substances.
    •  
    • Although RoHS directives are valid only for EU, manufactures of electrical and electronic equipment outside the EU have same responsibility if their products are imported by individual EU countries.

ROHS SERVICES

  • Consulting
  • Laboratory analyses
  • Verification of analyses performed by other laboratories
