RoHS Compliance with High Definition XRF Analyzers

RoHS compliance testing using HDXRF technology for fast and accurate detection of lead, cadmium, and other RoHS regulated materials in electronic components.

Man with Circuit BoardCompanies selling electronics into the European Union (EU) must document compliance with the strict standards of the EU Directive on Restriction of Hazardous Substances(RoHS).

RoHS compliance requires that electrical and electronics products or components contain only limited amounts of the heavy metals lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, and polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). Standards based on RoHS are proliferating around the globe.

HDXRF technology outperforms traditional XRF technologies and is particularly suited to assist in meeting RoHS compliance for restricted materials, offering levels of detection well below RoHS mandates.

Plus, HDXRF analyzers provide a 1-mm analysis area for testing small and irregular shapes.

Applications include:

  • Paint and pigment testing for lead and cadmium
  • Screening of PVC (vinyl) cables including power cords and USB cables
  • Solder testing for lead
  • Testing printed circuit boards and interconnects
  • Glass testing
  • Metal components and metal finish testing
