Webinar - PAHs: The importance of testing for restricted PAHs

Thursday 6th April 2023

10:00 and Re-run16:00 BST

PAHs (Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) are compounds that can be found in materials used in footwear, clothing, PPE and other consumer products, especially plastics and rubbers. These compounds are not intentionally added but can be present as impurities. Some PAHs have been restricted in both national and international legislation due to both the short-term and long-term health effects from being exposed to these PAHs.

In 2021 the ISO 16190 test method for detecting PAHs was revised; this method is written for footwear products and is also required for PPE gloves under EN ISO 21420. SATRA purchased a new instrument in 2022 to be able to provide more accurate testing to this method and this webinar presented by Callum Timms will explain more about PAH analysis, what testing SATRA can provide and the importance of this testing.
