Abstract Preview

This document specifies a method to determine the amounts of dimethylformamide (DMF) in footwear and footwear components containing polyurethane (PU) coated material.

NOTE 1   In the footwear industry, when PU is injected (reaction moulded), this process does not require the use of DMF. For PU coated material, the use of DMF is possible.

NOTE 2   Several abbreviations can be used for dimethylformamide DMF, DMFa, DMFo. This document uses DMF.

ISO/TR 16178:2021, Table 1 defines which materials are concerned by this determination.
