Quantitative Analysis of Antimony (Sb) in Plastics by EDXRF

In EDX analyses, antimony (Sb) compound, which is used as flame retardant promoter of plastics, is recently required to analyze as same as the elements(Cd, Pb, Cr, Hg, Br) subject to restriction in electrical and electronics equipment in the RoHS directive. As background, in the midst of the momentum that is building worldwide for increased protection of the environment, individual companies are now establishing their own regulations in addition to those currently enforced as public regulations. Here we present the results of sensitivity evaluation testing of commercially available antimony-spiked PE (polyethylene) plastic standards using the EDX-720/GP.
