Feb 28, An updated version of BS EN ISO , the internationally recognised method for the analysis of chrome VI in leather, is due to be published. The international test method to determine the chromium VI content in leathers is EN ISO This method has a limit of detection of 3mg/kg, which is the.

Eurofins BLC and Applied Tell us 17057 your business. According to a scientific study carried out in Germany, the number of people hypersensitive to chromium VI is low.

Please email chemistry satra. However, the concerns with this dangerous substance sparked its inclusion on restricted substances lists and resulted in the European legislation.

Allergic reactions to chromium VI can often be severe, leading to prolonged complications with the skin.

Since 1st Mayan EU regulation to restrict chromium VI in all leathers articles and articles containing leather parts in contact with the skin has been in force. These dyes can interfere with the detection technique UV-Visible spectrophotometerso a clean-up stage follows where the solution is passed through cartridges to remove the colour from 1775 extract. Where did you first hear about Eurofins BLC? Suppliers, manufacturers, brands and retailers need to be aware of this new POPs regulation and the chemical compliance Another less commonly known use for chromium is as the green pigment within tattoo inks.

IULTCS best practice Nine key points have 177075 developed to avoid chromium VI formation during the uso process and to create a leather matrix, to minimise the generation of chromium VI during storage and use: The most dangerous hazard associated with chromium VI is its carcinogenicity the ability to cause cancer.


The leather is cut into small pieces and placed in a phosphate buffer at pH 7. The advantage of this method is that there are no interferences from the colour of the extract, eliminating the risk of false positives.

Colour fastness to artificial light: Nevertheless, not all forms of chromium are as 1775 as chromium VI. The intensity of this colour is measured using an ultraviolet visible light spectrophotometer UV-Viswhich measures the absorbance of 1,5-diphenylcarbazone at a wavelength of nm.

We do not provide free advice or testing for members of the public or for the medical or biological sectors.

The chromatographic process separates the different ions within the sample i. Nine key points have been developed to avoid chromium VI formation during the leathermaking process and to create a leather matrix, to minimise the generation of chromium VI during storage and use: As a result, the mixture is separated into substances which appear as separate peaks on the HPLC chromatogram.

The colour complex is quantified photometrically at nm using a UV-Vis spectrophotemeter to measure the intensity of the pink i. From successful trials to commercial implementation; this DNA tagging system is one of the most accurate forms of Technical links The chemical testing of leather.

Please note some testing leadtimes may be Testing for chromium VI by the colourimetric method. Due to the way leather is processed in batches with each animal skin being slightly different and the complex chemistry involved with chromium VI formation, testing is the only certain way of demonstrating compliance.

To receive the Monthly Technical Update email, you simply need to complete this form. The extraction solution that has passed through the cartridges is then mixed with dilute phosphoric acid and a 1,5-diphenylcarbizide solution.


There are two primary methods for chrome VI ageing 1075 the use of heat and UV.

New bill proposed for Step 2 Tell us about your business. The extraction solution is referred to as a ‘buffer’ solution, because it resists a change in pH when small quantities of acid or alkali are added. As REACH Annex XVII entry 47 restricts chromium VI in leather articles and articles containing leather due to chromium allergic dermatitis and other health concerns, everyone involved in the supply chain has a responsibility to ensure that chromium VI is not present in their products.

The formation of chromium VI can be slow, which means that the reaction can occur during storage after the final article has been produced. End of Year Leather This website uses cookies. Chromium sulphate salts are commonly used as tanning agents for leathers articles used in footwear uppers, handbags, belts and upholstery.

Chromium VI test method updated

Chromium VI is also listed in California Proposition 65, so there are labelling implications if it is present in articles on sale in this US state. We will be 170755 an eye on this at BLC and will keep our members informed.

After the extraction, it is common for the extracted buffer solution to be coloured, as some dyes can easily be washed out of the leather test specimen. Any chrome VI present in the leather leaches into the solution.
