All products that claim to have a biocidal effect must be approved according to the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR). Part of the approval is demonstrating the efficacy of the product against the target organisms and the environmental impact that the use of the product may have.
At DTI, we have more than 40 years of experience with efficacy testing of wood preservatives and paint systems – both laboratory and performance testing.
To meet the demand for field data for the environmental risk assessment a semi-field leaching was developed at DTI. This standard, NT Build 509, is now broadly recognized as the preferred method for leaching testing of materials used outdoor, e.g. paint systems, wood preservatives, plaster and textiles.
We offer services related to
- Design of test programme to meet the demands in BPR
- Efficacy and leaching testing according to international methods
- Preparation of dossiers for BPR
