◉    Frequently Asked Questions

1.How long is the test cycle? Can it be expedited?

The normal cycle is 5-7 working days. If you need urgent, please contact CTI online customer service.

2.Does the Japanese positive list need to be tested?

Japanese positive list is mainly used to check whether the raw materials and corresponding additives of synthetic resins are in the list of substances published by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, not to test the substances in the list.

Companies need to clearly know the formula substances of synthetic resins in order to confirm whether the resin meets the requirements of Japan's positive list.

Metal products, glass products, ceramic products, and paper products are not subject to the positive list.
