PCB-POOL(R) PCBs are ROHS/WEEE conformMay 2004: ROHS = Restriction of Hazardous Substances
WEEE = Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
PCB-POOL(R) printed circuit boards are already conform to European Union guidelines ROHS / WEEE. These guidelines were set on the 13.02.2003 and prohibit the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, chrome-6, PBB and PBDE with electrical and electronics devices, which are brought into the market from 1 July 2006. These guidelines apply to all electronics firm within the European Union and likewise to those which export into the European Union. With PCB POOL(R) printed circuit boards the lead free tin Balver SN100CL is in use. This tin was already used and successfully tested with over ten million (at 9/2002) printed circuit boards. And the good news is although lead free of tin is twice as expensive as PbSn, the PCB POOL(R) prices remain the same! Further information as well as a data sheet can be found under Specifications.
