Due to new regulations, it is now required that manufacturers test for phthalate in a variety of commercial products including those that are used in children toys.
Phthalate testing is often performed on those products composed of polymers, specifically plastics due to its use as a softener. Recent research indicates its long term exposure risk can cause damage to endocrine functions and metabolism regulations. The concern over testing for phthalates comes mainly from use in children’s toys, food contact materials, packaging, and other plastic items. Avomeen’s scientists can perform phthalate trace level detection and testing services.
Not all types of phthalates at this point are banned though, so it is important for manufacturers to keep up with current regulations and ensure that their products are not violating these regulations.
Avomeen’s Scientists perform a range of similar testing on chemical detection and identification of chemicals:
- N-Nitrosamines & N-Nitrosatables
- Volatile compounds
- Heavy Metals
- MBT and 2-Meracaptobenzothiazole
- DEPH or di(2-ethylhexyl)
