INCERTEC provides RoHS compliant finishes. The RoHS directive aims to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used in electronic and electronic equipment. RoHS is also related to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, developed as part of a legislative initiative to solve the problem of large amounts of toxic e-waste through setting the collection, recycling, and recovery targets for electrical goods.
what substances are tested for with RoHS Compliant components?
Any RoHS compliant component is tested for the presence of
Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr)
Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE)
What is allowed for RoHS Compliance?
For Cadmium and Hexavalent chromium, there must be less than 0.01% of the substance by weight at raw homogeneous materials level. Lead, PBB, and PBDE must be no more than 0.1% of the material when calculated by weight at raw homogeneous materials. Any RoHS compliant component must have 100 ppm or less of mercury and the mercury must not have been intentionally added to the component. However, some military and medical equipment may be exempt from RoHS compliance.
