RoHS-2/WEEE/ELV analysis of polyolefins (PE,PP) in accordance with ASTM F2617

This work demonstrates the capabilities of the Epsilon 1 EDXRF spectrometer, to comply with ASTM F2617.

XRF is a well-established technology for screening and quantification of toxic metals and compounds regulated by global directives, like RoHS-2/WEEE/ELV, ‘Chinese RoHS’: Administration on the Control of Pollution Caused by Electronic Information Products and similar directives. All these directives have a slightly different scope but the commonalities are the restriction of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium and several brominated phenylic flame retardants. ASTM F2617 is a well-accepted test method to quantify the concentration of the restricted elements and compounds.
