Nonyl-phenol-ethoxylates and nonyl-phenols analysis.
Intertek tests for the detection and measurement of nonyl-phenols and nonyl-phenol-ethoxylates in materials and products.
Nonylphenols (NP) and nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs) are used as surfactants in detergent formulations, wool, metal, textile and leather processing, and as dispersants and emulsifiers in pesticides.
The European Union has placed restrictions against the usage of NPs and NPEs, as they are suspected to have endocrine effects. Importers of goods into the EU can use Intertek to help ensure NPs and NPEs were not used during production of these products.
Intertek tests raw materials, processed materials and final products for NPEs and NPs.
