Applicable range of products: children's products, including toys or children's clothing, metal rivets, buttons, fastening material, zippers and metal signs and markers, etc.
Contents: the human body in certain articles direct and prolonged contact may cause the presence of nickel in human skin allergies, and may cause allergic reactions in some western species of this reaction is particularly evident above. For these reasons, the EU put forward on the nickel used in some of the articles should be limited. June 30, 1994 the EU issued Directive 94/27/EC, Directive 76/769/EEC on the 12th for the amendment. Nickel-containing products require nickel release shall not exceed 0.5μg/cm2 /
week. July 20, 1997, the European Union according to the requirements of 94/27/EC released three harmonized standard, EN1810, EN1811 and EN12472, clear criteria for the release of nickel quantitative analysis. The implementation of Directive 94/27/EC was adopted by the European Standards Committee proved consistent with this directive for all standard test methods published 6 months after the manufacturers and importers will no longer allow the supply of nickel release substandard products. After
18 months, does not allow sales to final consumers.
9427EC What is the standard, nickel release testing, 9427EC of nickel release testing requirements Ni releases test - test release of nickel is a nickel-allergic contact easily lead to the elements. Nickel material
through a number of nickel release and long-term contact with the skin will be absorbed through skin to
cause allergies for some individuals; and further exposure to soluble nickel salts in the cause of national
contact dermatitis (According to statistics, 20% of the people Nickel allergy symptoms are very obvious.) At present, the export to Europe's clothing, jewelry and other daily necessities, if the material composition in nickel metal materials, general requirements of the standard release testing of nickel.
Nickel limited requirements: the European standard specified for clothing, jewelry and other products shall not exceed in the release of nickel 0.2ug/cm2/week. Testing process: a test of nickel released into
artificial sweat test object solution for 7 days. Using atomic absorption spectrometry, inductively coupled
plasma spectroscopy analysis or other appropriate method to test the solution concentration of dissolved nickel. Release of nickel in micrograms per square centimeter with a week (ug/cm2/week) to represent. Universal Detection Method: 20 July 1997 the requirements of the EU under the 94/27/EC released two new harmonized standards, that is, EN1811 and EN12472, the standard release of nickel clear
quantitative analysis. According to the EU Nickel Directive 94/27/EC on the release of the long-term
direct contact with the skin products that limits nickel release requirements for 0.2mg/cm2/week, commonly used detection methods: direct and long-term skin contact with nickel-release products the
volume of the test (EN1811: 1999, for products without electroplating coating); and the items used to measure the plating coating and the wear and tear in the catalytic amount of nickel release test (EN12472: 1999, applies to electroplated coatings products) Effective Date :1999-01-207 x0 ~ 6? *? + J;
