RoHS is the acronym for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of six hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. All applicable products in the EU market after July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance. The six substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (Cr-VI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
We understand that for many of our customers, RoHS compliance is essential for their products that use thermoelectric modules. At Ferrotec we have been engaged in comprehensive transition to ensure that all of our thermoelectric modules comply with the RoHS standards. If you have questions about your specific module, contact your Ferrotec representative.
