RoHS Directive

Directive 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament and the Council of 27 January 2003 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS).

Our alloys do not contain the substances to be avoided, mentioned in Article 4 of the a.m. Directive (directive for new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market from 1 July 2006), such as mercury, hexavalent, chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).

Regarding the transposition of the Directive into national law, it can be assumed that for lead and cadmium the thresholds of the amended Annex II of the EU End-of-life-Vehicle Directive 2000/53/EC of 27 June 2003 shall apply. According to Annex II, a concentration shall be tolerated of up to

- 0.1% lead by weight (1,000 ppm) and

- 0.01% cadmium by weight (100 ppm)

per homogenous material. Wieland meets with this requirement for lead-free alloys.

With a lead content of maximum 3.5%, lead-containing Wieland alloys, meet the requirements of paragraph 3 of Annex II Directive 2000/53/EC concerning the exemption from the prohibition of lead as an alloying element in copper alloys containing up to 4% lead by weight.
