Sampling of decorated glass containers for the TCLP can vary greatly, resulting from the size and shape of the article relative to the amount of ceramic decoration on the ware. Breaking the glass can cause some of the pieces to have no decoration on them, and others to be heavily decorated and more likely to leach lead and cadmium under the TCLP test. This method provides an effective tool to homogenize the glass containers so that reproducible results can be attained from the TCLP test.View Less
1.1 This test method defines the way in which container glassware should be prepared before performing the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP). The method covers the homogenization of the sample, and the selection of a representative portion of the sample to test and get reproducible results.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
