SVHC Elemental Screening With Handheld ED-XRF
Governmental regulations have made it increasingly important for manufacturers of consumer products to routinely monitor and test the chemical composition of products for consumer safety, especially products containing substances of very high concern (SVHC). This report lists the SVHC elements and the element bonds that can be analyzed with handheld EDXRF technology. The paper reviews the fundamentals of X-ray fluorescence technology and explains how it can provide fast accurate product screening. It also offers sample testing and results for product analyses completed using a SPECTRO xSORT handheld ED-XRF instrument.
