Mercury in Novelty and Children’s Products made with Polyvinyl Chloride or Polyurethane (Number of pages: 7) (Publication Size: 956KB)
|Description||In 2015, the Department of Ecology (Ecology) performed a study to evaluate the presence of mercury in novelty and children's products made with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polyurethane (PU).
The study was conducted to help Ecology assess compliance with Washington State's Mercury Law (Chapter 70.95 RCW) and the Children’s Safe Products Act (CSPA; Chapter 70.240 RCW).
Ecology purchased 266 products made from PVC or polyurethane. Mercury was detected in 30 of these 266 component samples, with concentrations ranging from 0.010 to 0.520 ppm.
