RoHS -- Restriction On Hazardous Materials

Definition

The European Union (EU) has adopted a directive concerning the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. Restriction of Hazardous Substance, RoHS, states that after July 1, 2006, electrical and electronic equipment sold in European Union Council Countries, not contain lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).  Exceptions are detailed in the Annex to the European Directive.

Custom Part Compliance:

Lyn-Tron provides custom parts to many customers. These parts are manufactured to customer supplied drawings and specifications. Any change or deviation is the responsibility of the customer. The customer is responsible for providing new drawings and/or specifications.


Certificate of Compliance

Compliance certification on specific part numbers can be supplied if requested at the time of order placement. RoHS compliance must be stated at time of order placement. Certification of RoHS compliance will be supplied at no charge. Specific analysis of chemical and material content on raw material is available for a fee of $145.00.


Non Compliant Parts

We do have some parts that are not compliant because the finish contains cadmium, hexavalent chromium or lead. Many of these parts are for Military applications and are not subject to RoHS specifications.
