Analysis and inspection of products
We analyse a range of different products, such as garments, shoes, toys, medical-technical products and accessories. Chemical analysis and certification provide your customers with a guaranty of the safety of your products from a health perspective.
Which substances does my product contain?
Society places very great requirements on companies and their products, but the European REACH Regulation also entails that you, as a manufacturer or supplier, must have complete information about, and control over, the substances and chemicals in your products. We help you to interpret legal requirements, select relevant parameters for testing, interpret reports and analyses and provide advice on how to manage deviations.
Trace hazardous chemicals
Using a broad range of analytical techniques, we are able to trace carcinogenic and allergenic dyestuffs, perfluorinated compounds, phthalates and much more. We offer a concept whereby our experts assist with advice and consultation. Then, based on the constituent materials, dyes and finishing, appropriate analyses are performed.
Examples of analyses that can be performed:
- NPEO - Nonylphenoletoxilates
- Allergenic dyestuffs
- Perfluorinated compounds
- pH value
- Chromium (VI)
- Metals – extractable and total content
- Chlorinated phenols and orthophenylphenol
- Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)
- Residual solvents – NMP, DMAc, DMF
- Organic tin compounds
- Odour/emissions analyses
