New Phthalate Standards

To increase consumer safety, a suite of standards was developed for plastics, providing scientific and repeatable test methods for determining levels of phthalates. Test methods are meant for use by manufacturers and third parties such as laboratories to verify results.

Test methods include: A test method to determinate low level, regulated phthalates in plastics by thermal desorption, which helps identify and quantify regulated phthalates (D7823); A vinyl plasticizer library adjunct, which walks an analyst through the mass spectroscopy data interpretation to distinguish between differing, but structurally similar, compounds (ADJD7823S); A guide for analyzing complex phthalates, which shows how to interpret and analyze data from a chromatographic analysis (D7993); and A test method for determining low level, regulated phthalates in plastics by solvent extraction, which quantifies six phthalates by solvent extraction (soon to be published as D8133).
