Standard name: ISO/TS 21396:2017: Rubber — Determination of mass concentration of tire and road wear particles (TRWP) in soil and sediments — Pyrolysis-GC/MS method
The test method in this standard is designed to test for rubber particulates from on-road tire wear that may collect in soil. These tire and road wear particles (TRWP) are the result of friction between tire treads and road surfaces and consist of both tire materials and mineral encrustations from the road itself.
The standard specifies key steps to this method:
ISO 21396 contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) established in 2015, namely:
