Online access to Toyota standard database

Upon agreement with TOYOTA company Institute for Testing and Certification, inc. got direct access to the database of Toyota standards, which are relevant to testing of automotive components, intended to TOYOTA cars. We believe that this step forward helps to perform better services towards you – our clients.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2020/1245 of 2nd September 2020 amending and correcting Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food entered into force on 23rd September 2020

This regulation has significantly changed the scope of evaluation of elements and primary aromatic amines and the way of evaluation of articles for repeated use – HERE you can find more information. ITC labs are already prepared to test and evaluate the articles according to new rules.

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.


Testing Laboratory for Textile Materials and Products

TESTING » ACCREDITED TESTING LABORATORY

The Testing Laboratory for Textile Materials and Products is a specialised department of the Accredited Testing Laboratory No. 1004, with approximately 120 accredited methods available and dozens of non-accredited methods. In collaboration with other laboratories of the ITC it provides comprehensive services in the assessment of quality indicators and the health safety of textiles. This department is also specialised in the assessment of personal protective clothing, from simple designs to highly complex ones, such as fire fighting garments or clothing for explosive environments.

TESTING

  • Tests of fibres
    • linear density, staple length, tensile strength, flexibility, contamination, etc.
  • Tests of strands and roving
    • linear density, tensile strength, twist, contamination, non-uniformity of material, etc.
  • Tests of yarns and threads
    • linear density, strength and elongation at break, knot, loop, curves, design, non-uniformity of material, widening, abrasion resistance, shrinkage in hot air or in boiling water, water absorption, etc.
  • Testing fabrics
    • texture, indicators of weight, dimensions and permeability, strength characteristics, shifting of threads in the seam and in the fabric, permeability of liquid under pressure, water repellence, capillarity, water absorption, water vapour permeability, measurement of thermal and water-vapour resistance, permeation, penetration, spraytest, changes of dimension and/or design after treatment, abrasion, shrinkage, resistance, pilling, flammability, drape, stretching, resistance to fungi and bacteria, stiffness, elasticity, electric resistance, measurement of testing dimensions, verification of the ergonomic features of clothing and clothing parts, resistance to drops of sprayed molten metal, fit to the body-shape, the assessment of structure, etc.


Tests for the stability of colour, material composition, content of undesirable elements and compounds (formaldehyde, heavy metals, pesticides, PCP, aromatic amines, etc.), pH of the aqueous extract, fat content; preparation and additional analysis can be performed regardless of the construction design of the textiles.
Selected chemical analysis, testing of health safety, fire characteristics, ageing tests are carried out in collaboration with specialised laboratories of the ITC.

The laboratory also provides the results of non-accredited methods especially in the case of requirements for testing in accordance with special procedures. The technical capacity of the working site allows the variable use of equipment and thereby the creation of favourable conditions for meeting the client's needs.

CONSULTATION, ACCEPTANCE, ASSESSMENT ACTIVITIES

  • technical inspections
  • forensic services
  • statistical quality checks of production batches and of business supplies
