ASTM F2765-14(R2021) pdf free download.Standard Specification for Total Lead Content in Synthetic Turf Fibers
1. Scope
1.1 This specification applies to the maximum content of lead in fibers used in synthetic turf. 1.1.1 This specification outlines a test method for sample preparation and a test method for analyzing the total lead content in synthetic turf fibers. 1.1.2 This specification outlines guidelines for reporting total lead content in synthetic turf fibers. 1.2 This specification applies only to synthetic turf fibers manufactured after Sept. 1, 2009. 1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro- priate safety, health, and environmental practices and deter- mine the applicability ofregulatory limitations prior to use. 1.5 This international standard was developed in accor- dance with internationally recognized principles on standard- ization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recom- mendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

3. Terminology
3.1 Definitions: 3.1.1 synthetic turffiber, n—extruded fiber used to simulate grass blades in a tufted, knitted, or woven turf fabric. 3.1.2 total lead content, n—quantity of lead in all forms measured by appropriate analytical technique and reported as mg/kg (ppm).
4. Acceptable Level
4.1 A representative sample of fiber shall be tested by the test method(s) described in Section 5 of this specification. The total lead content measured shall be less than 100 mg/kg (ppm). 4.2 Synthetic turf fibers shall be tested at such quantity intervals as to ensure continuing compliance with the require- ment in 4.1.
5. Test Methods
5.1 Laboratory Qualification—The testing shall be con- ducted by an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited environmental labo- ratory. 5.2 Preparation of the Sample—Prepare sample(s) as out- lined in EPA Method 3052 with the temperature modified from 180 6 5°C to 210 6 10°C. 5.3 Analysis ofSample: 5.3.1 Analyze sample(s) prepared in 5.2 for lead using inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy [ICP-AES] or atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) as out- lined in Test Method E1613.
