How Do You Get Your Products RoHS Compliant?

Have you heard about ITRI innovation or ITRI Labs? They specialize in helping companies get their products become rohs compliant. But what does RoHS stand for? It is short for “Restriction of Hazardous Substances” and is needed for many OEM products and manufacturers.

What type of products or substances tested for RoHS compliance are restricted? This could be items like electronic and electrical equipment which must not contain more than the maximum permitted levels of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). If they include more than the maximum levels then they will not be rohs compliant.

The testing method used is complicated and contains a variety of analytical techniques which must be employed. This includes non-destructive methods by only examining the surface of the sample and may not detect substances below the top few microns. This is also a destructive test which allows materials buried below the surface layer to be investigated, confirming how many homogeneous materials are present in the sample. An example of this is a semiconductor that is made of many different homogeneous materials each of which should be considered individually.
