Portable XRF Screening for Lead in Toys: the Smart Step Beyond Reliance on Vendor Certification

Oct 29 2007

The sheer volume of toys and other consumer products exported world-wide makes extensive materials testing at an outside lab impractical. Portable XRF screening delivers fast, confident verification of vendor certification without expensive analytical laboratory techniques or delays. Innov-X Systems (The Netherlands) is pleased to present the
Innov-X Import Guardâ„¢ handheld analyser which offers a simple non-destructive solution to the problem of checking imported toys and consumer items throughout the production process for heavy metal contamination.
Easily used by non-technical operators, the Import Guardâ„¢ checks for many toxic metals simultaneously for results within seconds. As a result, significantly more materials can be tested quickly and cost-effectively. QC and safety personnel can test materials for lead and other hazardous substances on the factory floor, at the loading dock, or on a vehicle.
The Import Guardâ„¢ is ideal for testing lead and other toxic metals in accordance with industry standard ASTM F963. Test results are automatically saved for your records and documentation. Easily add additional elements to the Import Guardâ„¢ that you would like to test for and change Pass/Fail criteria to keep up with ever-changing industry standards and government regulations. Completely non-destructive, the Import Guardâ„¢ can test right through packaging.
A successful compliance program typically consists of requiring certificates of compliances from suppliers, tracking those certificates and screening incoming products in areas that have historically not been in compliance. The Import Guardâ„¢ complements any compliance program for quick screening.
