RoHS & Lead-Free Soldering

Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS) / Lead-free solderability of electronic components

The Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS) was issued by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union on February 27, 2003. This directive demands the prohibition of the use of several materials that create a health hazard in electronic devices that are marketed after July 1, 2006.

We at GLYN have also addressed this topic and assembled a GLYN RoHS Roadmap for you.

Generally, a distinction is made between:

  • Lead-free solderability
    Electronic components that, due to the nature of their solder joints, are suitable for the use of lead-free solder.
  • RoHS compliance
    The Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS), as soon as it becomes effective, prohibits the use of the following substances in electronic devices / electronic components that are marketed after July 1, 2006:
    Lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybromated biphenyl (PBB), polybromated diphenyl ether (each dependent on weight proportion).

 

GLYN RoHS Roadmap:
  • Since August 2004:
    Successive classification of products from the current GLYN portfolio (approx. 16,000)
  • Since October 2004:
    Indication of the recorded classifications in GLYN order confirmations, invoices and delivery bills
  • Since January 2005:
    GLYN GmbH website www.glyn.com provides, in addition to general information from our manufacturers, a list of articles with the corresponding RoHS status for downloading. These lists will also be continuously updated.
