A wide range of products, such as electronic and electrical products, parts and materials, toys and children's products, might contain toxic and harmful substances, which is a big threat to human beings'safety. Therefore, harmful substance testing is an indispensable step in the manufacturing process of various products. As a professional, reliable third-party testing organization, T,C&A Lab, a branch of Alfa Chemistry, recently announces it can provide harmful substances testing service in compliance with related standards and industry requirements.

Regulatory institutions worldwide have put forward strict requirements for toxic and harmful chemicals in products and their raw materials. “With advanced facilities and highly experienced scientific team, our lab can help customers produce safer products that contain no harmful substances. Based on different testing items, various testing techniques and methods are employed, including: gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC-MS), gas chromatography/electron capture detector analysis method (GC-ECD), liquid chromatography analysis method (HPLC), spectrophotometric analysis, inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES), atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS), atomic fluorescence spectrometry (AFS),” says the Marketing Chief of T,C&A Lab.

The capability of T,C&A Lab in harmful substance testing is diversely ranged, which mainly covers the following aspects:

RoHS Testing
Analytical testing is conducted to figure out if electronic and electrical equipment contain excessive amount of ten hazardous materials, namely, lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (Cr6+), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE), bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP).

REACH Testing
T,C&A Lab conducts REACH testing to figure out if substances of very high concern (SVHC) are present in articles, if their total quantity used is more than one ton per year and if the SVHC is at more than 0.1% of the mass of the object.

PAHs Testing
The testing range of PAHs include: consumer products such as electronics, motors, rubber products, plastic products, automotive plastics, rubber parts, food packaging materials, toys, container materials, as well as other materials.

Heavy Metal Testing
Heavy metals such as lead (Pb), arsenic (As), antimony (Sb), barium (Ba), cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), mercury (Hg), and selenium (Se) should also be tested for toy products.

Phthalic Acid Ester Testing (PAEs)
Phthalate ester is a kind of widely used plasticizer, which can modify or soften plastics. It is common in plastics and paints, among which 15 kinds of phthalates are considered to be harmful substances and their use is limited.
