Consumer Goods

Consumer protection and public health concerns have driven consumer protection regulations.

Manufacturers and importers of these goods have a responsibility to ensure that these products conform to standards that help them ensure safety, performance and compliance for a huge range of equipment. In the EU all electrical & electronic products must comply with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) & Waste of Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE) regulations, that restrict the use of and control the disposal of hazardous materials, such as heavy metals. Grinding plastics & polymers are notoriously difficult at ambient temperatures. SPEX expertise in grinding the materials cryogenically can help you to improve and qualify materials & products and meet worldwide regulatory requirements, for example in relation to food & drink packaging, and children’s toys.

SPEX Freezer Mills are used to prepare samples for testing to prove compliance to guidelines such as food contact materials regulations, ASTM, restricted substances, automotive industry guidelines, emission standards, import regulations and toy manufacture legislation. (CPC)

SPEX FreezerMills are effective in grinding heterogeneous, tough to grind matrices such as electronic components to a homogeneous fine powder, suitable for downstream analysis.
