Total fluorine content in plastic
Determination of total fluorine (F) content in plastic according to the EN 15408 mod. method.
The fluorine content of the sample is obtained using oxygen bomb combustion treatment followed by ion chromatography (IC). Possible sample preparation, such as grinding into smaller particles, is available at an extra cost.
This method can also be used to determine the total content of S, Cl, and Br.
The results will be reported in mg/kg.
