Plastics and Plastic Product Testing

Testing of plastic products is important in order to ensure that plastics in consumer goods and electronics do not contain toxic substances.

There are a large number of toxic chemicals which are found in plastic products and plastic components of consumer goods. This includes phthalates, chemicals used primarily as plasticizers in polyvinylchloride (PVC) products as well as heavy metals and flame retardants.

The large array of different chemicals that may be found in plastics has warranted the need for plastics to be covered under a variety of different restrictions and legislations.
