Halogen-Free Materials and Products – A New Trend In the Electrical and Electronics Industry
Halogen-free products have been available for some time, and their use is expected to increase. This increase is driven by industry initiatives and legislation aimed at protecting our environment as well as the establishment of “green” procurement policies by some leading global manufacturers. These requirements translate into a need for testing products to demonstrate that they are halogen-free. This is where NTEK can provide assistance.
Accredited by ISO 17025, NTEK can provide halogen testing based on international standard EN 14582 and IEC 61189. This testing is a chemical method used to determine if electronic products are halogen-free. NTEK is pleased to offer a special testing package that can provide RoHS testing and halogen testing together. This would be advantageous and cost efficient for the manufacturer, as EU RoHS legislation has restricted use of the following six substances in certain electrical and electronic devices: • Lead (Pb) 0.1% • Mercury (Hg) 0.1% • Hexavalent Chromium (Cr(VI)) 0.1% • Cadmium (Cd) 0.01% • Polybrominated biphenyl flame retardants (PBB) 0.1% • Polybrominated diphenyl ether flame retardants (PBDE) 0.1% What are the key benefits? • Determine if products are halogen-free • Prove compliance with any applicable regulations • Enhance risk management and brand protection • Promote safer and greener products
