Testing RoHS Compliance with XRF Analysis

“RoHS directive encourages manufacturers to reduce the use of hazardous & toxic materials to ensure user safety and product reliability while preventing future environment pollution.”

Benefits of RoHS Directive & Certification

Complying with the RoHS directive can encourages manufacturers to:
  • Contribute to a cleaner environment with stricter quality process control, overall reduced number of defects and increased production efficiency.
  • Competitive advantage towards customers who prefers manufacturers and companies implementation of environmental standards.
  • Eliminate harmful exposure (e.g. heavy metal poisoning) during manufacturing, recycling and disposal process.
  • Improve product reliability that assures of product safety thus improving sales and popularity.
  • Reduce toxicity pollution to humans and the environment as an initiative to improve ecological sustainability (i.e. landfill contamination and poisoning cases) and energy efficiency.
  • List of Restricted Materials

    Lead (Pb) | Mercury (Hg) | Cadmium (Cd) | Hexavalent chromium (CrVI) | Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) | Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) | Phthalate esters (DEHP, BBP, BBP, DIBP)

    RoHS Compliance with XRF Testing

    X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (XRF), is a non-destructive test (NDT) method that analyses the elemental composition of materials almost instantly. It is a common test method for RoHS compliance accordingly to ASTM F2617.
    XRF comes in 2 platforms:
  • Hand-held XRF are light, portable and usable during on-and-off site, without relocation of bigger measuring samples, at any time.
  • Benchtop XRF are slightly heavier, stationary analyzers with more or the same capabilities as the hand-held version.
