REACH Directive EC/1907/2006 Annex XVII – Individual PAHs
GCMS methods are available to analyse for individual Polyaromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), as defined in Annex XVII of Directive EC/1907/2006 REACH.
For tyres the limits are as follows:
<10mg/kg in total of all the following PAHs
In a product Rubber Consultants can also test for PAHs or PNAs which may originate from carbon black via their oil feedstock, or from aromatic oil extenders. This test can vary from a simple ‘quick look’ for pyrenes (expected from black) to a full scale fully quantitative analysis of PAHs or PNAs.
