Chemplex XRF Sample Cups and Thin-Film Sample Support Windows Comply with RoHS

The awareness of environmental and hazardous issues has gained momentum and has substantially increased. With growing concern for the environment regarding disposal and recycling of plastic and polymer products containing specific substances, restrictions have been imposed for compliance.

This restriction, commonly referred to as ROHS, imposes a Restriction of Hazardous Substances. It specifies and directs compliance in accordance with not to exceed the following standards:

Lead (Pb

   

0.1% (1000 PPM) 

Cadmium (Cd

   

0.01% (100 PPM) 

Mercury (Hg) 

   

0.1% (1000 PPM) 

Chromium (Cr); hexavalent chromium (VI) 

   

0.1% (1000 PPM) 

Polybrominated Biphenyl; PBB 

   

0.1% (1000 PPM) 

Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether; PBDE 

   

0.1% (1000 PPM) 


Note: PBB and PBDE are flame-retardants formulated in a number of plastics.

RoHS appears likely to be the beginning of a global trend as consumer and environmental interests become more intensified. Some of the world’s other prime economic regions, including China and Taiwan, are in the process of enacting similar restrictions.

The Current 25 Member States of the European Union (EU)

Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom (Great Britain).

As consumer and environmental interests become more intensified, RoHS appears likely to be the beginning of a global trend. Some of the world’s other prime economic regions, including China and Taiwan, are in the process of enacting similar directives or laws and the geographic market for non-compliant products is dwindling.
