Dangerously high lead content in webbings detected
Mar '11
Chinese authorities have found dangerously higher lead content in children's printed webbings rejected by the United States. As per reports, this is one more typical failure case of textile chemical safety.

The textile testing center of Inspection and Quarantine Bureau in Ningboon city conducted the tests on a batch of children's printed webbing rejected by the United States.

It found the lead content of the printed products to be up to 1500 mg / kg. It is more than 17 times of the limit set by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for total lead content in consumer products.

Considering the higher risk of chemical safety, the U.S. rejected the goods. The CPSC has set strict limits of coating. As per rule, it must be less than 90 mg / kg.

In China, use of high level of lead is very common as lead is cheap and efficient printing colorant. It is very convenient for fiber combination and has solid-color effect too. Many manufacturers prefer to use it ignoring its hazardous effects on children.
