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

Announcement of change in ITC management.

 

New general director of the Institute for Testing and Certification has been appointed Mgr. Jiri Hes.

 

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.
For further information and quotation please, contact Ing. Jitka Balakova, e-mail: jbakalova(at)itczlin.cz, phone: +420 577 601 453


Testing Laboratory for Textile Materials and Products

Testing » Accredited Testing Laboratory No. 1004

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
