PAHs Test

PAHs( Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons) can be found widely in petroleum products such as plastics and lubrication oil. In the manufacturing industries for electronics and appliances, PAHs is usually found in plastics and rubber products. Currently, more than 30 of the existing 100 types of PAHs are verified to be carcinogenic.

At the end of 2013, EU officially included PAHs control in under annex X VII of REACH, which regulates that the PAHs concentration in consumer products subject to long-term or repeatedly short-term contact with human skin or mouth must be no more than 1 mg/kg. For the products children and toys, the PAHs concentration must be no more than 0.5 mg/kg. In addition, the German GS mark expanded its PAHs list from 16 items to 18 items in September 2011. With the ever-stricter regulations, iST can assist the clients to conduct PAHs risk evaluation and related tests to ensure eligible product marketability.
