OCAS’s expertise in the field of product safety is concentrated on
Using several techniques, e.g. FT-IR and XRF, OCAS identifies and characterises possible hazards. Results enable to perform e.g. coating reverse engineering.
By sampling and measuring air or fume, hazardous compounds are detected and quantified. These allow to assess the level of exposure and protect the health & safety of operators by comparing the measured concentrations with the occupational and exposure limits .
Pyrolysis of the coating allows to predict organic volatiles emitted during welding and cutting. OCAS is furthermore equipped for sampling and quantitative analysis of dust (using ICP) and gases (using GC) emitted during welding.
OCAS is fully equipped and has skilled staff to determine:
