Construction products: Assessment of release of dangerous substances - Analysis of inorganic substances in digests and eluates - Analysis by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES)
  • 62.80 / copy


This document specifies the method for the determination of major, minor and trace elements in aqua regia and nitric acid digests and in eluates of construction products by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES). It refers to the following 44 elements: Aluminium (Al), antimony (Sb), arsenic (As), barium (Ba), beryllium (Be), bismuth (Bi), boron (B), cadmium (Cd), calcium (Ca), cerium (Ce), chromium (Cr), cobalt (Co), copper (Cu), iron (Fe), lanthanum (La), lead (Pb), lithium (Li), magnesium (Mg), manganese (Mn), mercury (Hg), molybdenum (Mo), neodymium (Nd), nickel (Ni), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), praseodymium (Pr), samarium (Sm), scandium (Sc), selenium (Se), silicon (Si), silver (Ag), sodium (Na), strontium (Sr), sulphur (S), tellurium (Te), thallium (Tl), thorium (Th), tin (Sn), titanium (Ti), tungsten (W), uranium (U), vanadium (V), zinc (Zn), and zirconium (Zr). For the determination of low levels of As, Se and Sb, hydride generation can be applied. This method is described in Annex E. NOTE Construction products include e.g. mineral-based products (S); bituminous products (B); metals (M); wood-based products (W); plastics and rubbers (P); sealants and adhesives (A); paints and coatings (C), see also CEN/TR 16045. The method in this document is applicable to construction products and validated for the product types listed in Annex C.
