XRF Testing for Consumer Products/Toys
Precision Products is an ISO 9001:2008 certified company offering mobile XRF testing on products such as textiles, resins, fibers, consumer products, toys, jewelry, plastics and many other materials.
Over the last few years one of the most common uses of Xray fluorescence testing devices is for testing toys and other consumer products for the presence of lead, antimony, chromium, cadmium, mercury and other heavy metals. Not only is XRF fast and safe, Precision uses the exact same device that is used by the Consumer Product Safety Council which is the Niton XL3t analyzer ensuring you the best possible data and accuracy.
Precision follows all guidelines for testing to comply with CPSIA standards and our testing can be used to meet the "general conformity certification" requirements where third party testing is not yet mandated according to CPSC. The Niton analyzer is the only device on the market that generates a 100% encrypted/tamperproof data in the event you ever need proof of compliance in court.
Lead and cadmium poisoning damages the nervous system (especially in children) and can cause blood and brain disorders. Lead has been linked to learning disabilities in children even at low levels. There is no acceptable level of lead in the human body and it is critical to ensure your products comply with the latest standards such as the Consumer Products Safety Improvement act of 2008. Precision can assist you in this area with fast and economical testing.
The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act limits lead to 90ppm in paint or surface coatings as of August 14, 2009. Precision's XRF device is capable of testing metals as well as plastics to determine if they contain elements such as lead, arsenic or any other heavy metals. This is a very economical service and can be done at our facility or the customer's site depending on the size of the material to be tested. The XRF device is portable and can be carried to your location to test large samples for fast and easy data generation. The output files are 100% court admissible and our staff of certified operators are trained and ready to assist you as needed.
