The lab is still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Due to power outages in Miami, delivery of results will unfortunately be delayed.
Beta Analytic is not affiliated with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
ISO has published a series of standards focused on the biobased content of rubber. The published standards are:
ISO/CD 19984-1 Rubber and rubber products — Determination of biobased content — Part 1: General principles and calculation methods using formulation
ISO/CD 19984-2 Rubber and rubber products — Determination of biobased content — Part 2: Biobased carbon content
ISO/CD 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.
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 3-5 business days with online reporting, technical consultation, and quality assurance reports included. Customer service is available in English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, and Turkish.
