ISO 19984 – Biobased Content Testing of Rubber

  • ISO 19984-2:2017 measures the biobased carbon content of rubber and rubber products via radiocarbon analysis.
  • Beta Analytic provides fast and accurate biobased testing in accordance with the specifications of ISO 19984-2.

Beta Analytic is not affiliated with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).


ISO 19984 Standard for Rubber

ISO has published a series of standards focused on the biobased carbon content in rubber and rubber products, including polyurethanes. The published standards are:

ISO 19984-1 Rubber and rubber products — Determination of biobased content — Part 1: General principles and calculation methods using formulation

ISO 19984-2 Rubber and rubber products — Determination of biobased content — Part 2: Biobased carbon content

ISO 19984-3 Rubber and rubber products — Determination of biobased content — Part 3: Biobased mass content

These ISO standards are applicable only to rubber and rubber products which are made from biobased or fossil-based constituents. ISO 19984 was developed by Technical Committee ISO/TC 45, Subcommittee SC 2.

Beta Analytic High-Quality ISO 19984-2 Testing

ISO/IEC 17025:2005-accredited Beta Analytic provides biobased content testing as described under ISO 19984-2. The lab uses accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) to determine the biobased carbon content of rubber and rubber products.

Beta Analytic routinely reports results in 5-7 business days with online reporting, technical consultation, and quality assurance reports included. A priority service is available for results required in 4 business days or less.

Customer service is available in English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish.

To confirm if a Beta Analytic report is authentic, check the certificate ID and biobased content percentage in the lab’s report validation checker.
