Characterization of Lead Leachability from Cathode Ray Tubes Using the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure [PDF]
Abstract: A characterization of 36 CRTs were processed and analyzed for lead using the toxicity characteristic leaching procedure (TCLP). An average concentration of 18.5 mg/L lead was found, with the most significant portion in the frit seal, found in the funnel portion of color CRTs. This exceeds the regulatory limit of 5.0 mg/L.
