RoHS Compliance

RoHS stands for Restriciton of Hazardous Substances. Any company that sells directly applicable electronic products, subcomponents or components to EU countries, or sells products to EU countries to resellers, distributors, or integrators, will be affected if they use any restricted materials.

Our LiPol battery company can apply RoHS for our customer, more information please contan us.

RoHS Compliance Concept

RoHS stands for restriction of hazardous substances, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of six hazardous materials found in electronic and electronic products. All applicable products on the EU market since July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance. Directive 2011/65/EU was published in 2011 by the EU, which is known as RoHS-Recast or RoHS 2. RoHS 2 includes a CE-marking directive, with RoHS compliance now being required for CE marking of products. RoHS 2 also added Categories 8 and 9, and has additional compliance recordkeeping requirements.

Restricted materials

The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), and four different phthalates (DEHP, BBP, BBP, DIBP).

  • Lead (Pb): < 1000 ppm
  • Mercury (Hg): < 100 ppm
  • Cadmium (Cd): < 100 ppm
  • Hexavalent Chromium: (Cr VI) < 1000 ppm
  • Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB): < 1000 ppm
  • Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE): < 1000 ppm
  • Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP): < 1000 ppm
  • Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP): < 1000 ppm
  • Dibutyl phthalate (DBP): < 1000 ppm
  • Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP): < 1000 ppm

Test Method

A. Screening test by XRF spectroscopy

XRF screening limits in mg/kg for regulated elements according to IEC 62321-3-1:2013.

Note:

-BL=Under the XRF screening limit

-OL=Further chemical test will be conducted while result is above the screening limit

-X=The symbol”X” marks the region whether further investigation is necessary

-3=The reproducibility of analytical instruments

-LOD=Detection limit

B. Chemical Test
