RoHS & Environment
As per directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament there are two approved directives related to the reduction of electrical and electronic waste, namely the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directives. The WEEE Directive aims to regulate the reuse, recycling and recovery of waste electrical and electronic equipment; the ultimate goal is to prevent the disposal of this waste.
In the RoHS Directive, the use of the aforementioned substances in most electrical and electronic equipment will be banned or severely restricted. The RoHS Directive calls for the elimination of these substances from most electronic equipment starting 1 July 2006. Our products are SGS certified for the RoHS compliant levels of Lead 0.1%, Mercury 0.1%, Cadmium 0.01%, Hexalent Chromium 0.1%, Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB) 0.1% and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE) 0.1%. Since 2015, Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) Phthalate (DEHP) 0.1%, Butyl benzyl phthalate (PBP) 0.1%, Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) 0.1% and Di-isobutyl Phthalate (DIBP) 0.1% have been added to the list.
All our products meet the above RoHS compliance limits at a homogenous level.
