What does the "legal limit" mean?

To protect the consumer, the use of certain chemicals is regulated by law. Along with this, corresponding legal limits for the use of substances are defined and regulated, the contents of which must not be exceeded.


What does "normal market value" mean?

The use of certain chemical substances is not regulated by law or, from the point of view of market participants or even consumer protection organizations, only inadequately regulated. As a result, common limits have generally been established in the market, which are used by material manufacturers and trading companies. Frequently, these commercially available limit values make higher demands than already existing legal limit values on their use.


What is a mixed sample?

As a rule, mixed samples are formed to shorten the throughput times or to reduce test costs. In a mixed sample, i.d.R. combined up to 3 compatible individual materials in one sample, mixed in equal proportions and jointly subjected to the respective chemical test. The number of materials to be mixed results from the methodological requirements. In the case of mixed sample formation, there is generally the risk that the result of the mixed sample exhibits abnormalities which suggest that at least one of the materials does not meet the legal or customary limit values. Which of the materials within the composite sample causes the abnormalities is confirmed by post-testing of all materials of the composite sample. This leads to additional costs, which must be borne by the client when commissioning.
