The nickel release test

Nickel release test

      In 2011, the European Union introduced the EN 1811:2011 norm with its further changes. The norm contains the information about the nickel release from all post assemblies which are inserted into pierced parts of the human body and articles intended to come into direct and prolonged contact with the skin. The document refers to the daily limit of the nickel's emission to the human body, including wedding rings containing nickel in their alloys. It is a misconeption to say that wedding rings cannot contain nickel. PZ Stelmach company cooperates with Progold company and uses their products which hold the necessary European Union certificates ensuring compliance with all emission standards in all metal alloys. Nonetheless, in an accredited labolatory, our company has made its own research in order to confirm the nickel emission standards. It should be noted that the usage of an obstructive layer in the nickel alloy precludes the nickel's emission, thus rhodium plating is the obstructive layer.
