Phthalates in Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
Polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, is a very common plastic used in a wide range of common consumer products, from children’s toys and care items to building and construction materials. In the US, ASTM and the CPSC have designated methods for testing children’s toys and childcare articles for compliance with the restricted use of six designated phthalates: DBP, BBP, DEHP, DNOP, DIDP, and DINP.
Spex CertiPrep is proud to offer Certified Reference Materials for phthalates in polyvinyl chloride produced under the guidelines of ISO 9001:2015, ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ISO 17034:2016.
