When tested with an XRF instrument this white plastic Munchkin brand door knob safety cover (for childproofing, so kiddos cannot open your doors) had the following readings:
Tests done for a minimum of 60 seconds.
All metals detected by the XRF are listed below.
- Barium (Ba): 156 +/- 75 ppm
- Nickel (Ni): 13 +/- 7 ppm
- Iron (Fe): 72 +/- 17 ppm
- Titanium (Ti): 4,675 +/- 285 ppm
In general single-color modern hard plastic items like this are not going to be positive for toxicants when tested with an XRF (specifically they will likely be negative for Lead, Mercury, Arsenic and Cadmium).
Additionally – newly manufactured children’s items (or items intended for use by and around children specifically – especially for use in the environments of toddlers and newborns) will likely be Lead-free. I would trust that anything newly made by this brand will be Lead-free.
