Bietigheim-Bissingen, Germany, March 13, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The well-tried NDT X-ray chemicals for industrial film processing have been further improved by DÜRR NDT and have obtained REACH compliance. All toxic and carcinogenic ingredients have been omitted from their formulas: the XR-F-6 NDT Fixer is now free of boric acid and the XR D-6 NDT Developer is free of hydroquinone and aldehyde, as before. This means there is now an alternative to traditional products that is environmentally sound and completely without hazard warnings.
As one of the market leaders, DÜRR NDT is committed to its goals of social and environmental responsibility. Oliver Ruzek, Director of DÜRR NDT commented, “The achievement of REACH compliance by our new NDT X-ray chemicals is further proof of our sustainable product development.”
DÜRR NDT X-ray chemicals can be used in all film-processing machines and are equally suitable for manual developing. As proof of their effectiveness, the chemicals have been certified by the German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) in accordance with standards DIN EN ISO 11699-1:2012 and ASTM E1815-08.
What is REACH?
REACH is a European Union regulation for chemical substances, an acronym derived from its title: “Regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals.” Widely regarded as one of the strictest chemical regulations in the world, its primary aim is to replace hazardous chemicals with safer alternatives wherever possible.
