The S1 TITAN handheld XRF gun can be used for analysis in conjunction with consumer safety specification, ASTM-F963, “the mandatory toy standard” which includes restriction of the following 8 elements in toys:
Like the European standard EN-71, ASTM F963 regulates the concentrations of the above 8 elements in toys with regard to the levels at which these contaminants leach out of the product. Many manufacturers, importers and retailers of toys have adopted in-house screening with handheld XRF guns into their Quality Control (QC) and Quality Assurance (QA) programs to ensure compliance with regulations such as ASTM-F963, CPSIA, Prop 65 (California), EN-71 and RoHS. By introducing stringent testing early in the supply chain, manufacturers can lessen the likelihood that these restricted contaminants will end up in their products or in stores.
