Mapping of decabromodiphenylether (decaBDE) in other products than electrical and electronical products

20-08-2007

The Danish consumption of the brominated flame retardant deca-BDE has been estimated. Deca-BDE is imported for a few uses. Industrial use is limited to free standing production of special products for export. Deca-BDE is imported in tents, cars and heat-shrink tubing. Import has not been found in other types of products. It should be underlined that there is considerably uncertainties associated with the results, as there was few replies from importers together with a general lack of knowledge of which chemicals are used in the products.
