If you’ve got painted toys that children and/or pets play with, mouth or suck, then we recommend testing the paint.
There are a couple of options for testing toys:
- Scraping Off Paint: If you can scrape off some paint (any amount up to a total area of 3 cm2), it can be tested for total lead.
- Leachate: If you can’t scrape the paint off, then send the whole toy to the lab where it will be immersed in a mild acid (note, this will damage the toy so it will not be returned to you) then analysed for leachable lead.
For your consideration – there are 7 extra metals which are recommended for testing compliance with the Australian Toy Standard. Click here to order these, too.
👉🏼 Note, to test all 8 Toy Standard Metals you need to order this Kit AND the Toy Paint Metals Suite Add-On for each Toy Paint sample.
Jewellery can be prepared for testing for leachable lead. This is particularly recommended if a child has been mouthing or chewing on jewellery. Simply specify this at the checkout.
PLEASE NOTE that this preparation can damage the jewellery. It is important to consider this, as there are no guarantees that it won’t. If you’d like it back after it’s been tested, be sure to send the sample in a Glad Seal Bag with a self-addressed postage-paid envelope/packaging inside so that the lab can return it to you after testing it.
For your consideration – we recommend the Jewellery Metals Suite, which includes 3 extra metals which are commonly found in jewellery, click here if you want to add on these extra 3 metals.
👉🏼 Note, to test all 4 problem metals in jewellery, you need to order this Kit AND the Jewellery Leachate Add-On.
Are you worried that there might be asbestos in your paint, soil, ceiling dust, vacuum dust surface dust wipe or building material?
The only way to know for certain is to have the laboratory examine it with their powerful microscope. We’ll send you instructions on how to safely collect the samples.
👉🏼 Note, you need to order this Kit AND the Asbestos Detection Add-On.
