The use of chemicals in products strongly depends on the materials used. The harmful substances to be be anticipated in products made of metal differ from those in products made of plastic. In the case of plastic products the harmful substances they may contain depend on the type of plastic (PP, ABS or PVC, etc.).
The Product Chem Risk app specifies for each substance in the candidate list the materials in which it is typically present. This information was derived mainly from reliable literature and own expertise and observations, e.g. generated in the DEKRA laboratory. Currently the Product Chem Risk database lists around 150 materials, including polymers, natural substances and tissues, mineral materials, metals, alloys, and electronic components.
