What is ROHS Compliant?

RoHS Complian

Many of our cables here at Wire And Cable Your Way are listed as RoHS Compliant under the specs on our product pages.

Every once in awhile we get asked from customer what RoHS Compliant means?

For those curious about what RoHS stands for please see below:

RoHS (Restriction of Use of Hazardous Substances) regulations limit or ban specific substances -- lead, cadmium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), mercury, hexavalent chromium, and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants – in new electronic and electric equipment.

The definition and aim of the RoHS directive is quite simple. The RoHS directive aims to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used in electronic and electronic equipment. Any RoHS compliant component is tested for the presence of Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).

If your wire & cable needs to be RoHS Compliant review our product pages to ensure it contains this listing.
