Application note: FTIR determination of brominated flame retardants — RoHS software
‘FTIR determination of brominated flame retardants using an automated tool — RoHS software’
The RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC will restrict the use of brominated flame retardants for electrical and electronic parts starting in July 2006. The consequence is that polybrominated biphenyls such as PBB and PBDE are not allowed to be used as flame retardant, or the presence of them should not be higher than 1,000ppm, which is the limit. This application note from Shimadzu introduces RoHS Software, which is a simple tool for analysing the base polymer and to analyse polybrominated substances in a polymer.
