Innovatech Labs, Assisting Companies in Adhering to Halogen-Free Manufacturing Standards Aimed at Protecting the Environment

Ion Chromatography tests deployed on electronic components to determine levels of halogens

Minneapolis (PRWEB) November 25, 2008 -- - Innovatech Labs, a leading materials testing laboratory, is helping companies adhere to halogen-free manufacturing standards. The vast quantities of electronic waste have led to concerns regarding the environmental and health impact of halogens in discarded consumer electronics.

The use of halogen-free materials is being driven by industrial initiatives and legislation aimed at protecting the environment.

Innovatech Labs is providing Halogen Free Testing for manufacturers of materials used in the electronics industry. The term "halogen free" does not mean that the material contains no halogens; rather, the material or product is assembled without the intentional use of halogens.

The IPC-Association Connecting Electronics Industries has issued a testing method for measuring halogens using ion chromatography (IPC-TM-650 2.3.41). According to the IPC test method, a sample is tested for halogens by bombing the sample in an oxygen bomb. The residue from the bombing is then tested using ion chromatography to quantify the amounts of chlorine and bromine, which are types of halogens.

Manufacturers within the electronics industry can deploy ion chromatography tests on their products to ensure they adhere to Halogen-Free standards.
