Over deze norm
This European Standard specifies a method for the determination of the content of halogens in Cable Management System (CMS) products or parts of products made of polymeric material(s). The determination is made by combustion and subsequent analysis of the combustion product by Ion Chromatography. This standard specifies how CMS products can be declared as halogen free. This European Standard is for environmental performance only. Compliance with this standard does not guarantee the absence of toxicity, corrosivity or opacity of produced smoke, or other reaction to fire characteristics. If any of these characteristics are to be evaluated, the suitable standards can be used. The detection limit of this test method is 0,025 g of halogen per kg (0,0025 %). Halides insoluble in aqueous solution present in the original sample or produced during the combustion step are not determined by this method.
