This data sheet describes an elemental analysis method using PANalyticals MiniPal 2 a benchtop energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer. MiniPal 2 is an excellent system to screen for heavy elements that are restricted by the RoHS and WEEE, or similar legislation.
Results obtained when analyzing Acrylonitrile-Butadiene Styrene (ABS) standards are summarized in this data sheet. In common with Polyethylene (PE) and Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC), ABS is one of the most widely used plastics in products affected by RoHS legislation. The tests on ABS were conducted on PANalyticals MiniPal 2. This instrument features a powerful SD Detector with a typical resolution of 145eV. This high resolution detector is optimized for RoHS and WEEE applications because it improves the separation of element lines.The powerful, but simple to use software, offers a host of features including Compton scatter correction. This feature allows operators to correct for matrix variations and sample thickness. The Analysis Centre Company Ltd prepared the standards used for this application. They contain Cd, Pb, Hg, Cr and Br, which are used in the flame retardant PBDE. The item "Philips MiniPal 2 XRF, X-Ray Spectrometer Tested and working" is in sale since Thursday, June 7, 2018.
