Surface finishing is integral to the manufacture of various electrical and electronic equipment, including components used in appliances, IT, telecommunications, consumer items, lighting, tools, and toys, leisure or sporting equipment. In addition to using the latest manufacturing techniques to ensure the highest quality standards around, our surface finishing service is also fully compliant in accordance with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive.
Under current legislation, the RoHS compliant finishes supplied by our team restrict the use of six hazardous materials, namely lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PPB (Polybrominated Biphenyls) and PBDE (Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether). The RoHS Directive is just one of the strict regulations used to control the metal finishing sector, and like many other laws and compliances, the RoHS Directive works to protect you, your customers and the environment from certain hazardous substances.
The aerospace and military markets in fact only use materials that are RoHS compliant, making our RoHS compliant finishes a great ally for these particular sectors and so many others.
With a commitment to providing safe and environmentally responsible surface finishing to all our customers, we use a variety of compliant alternatives to meet the RoHS Directive and produce a range of RoHS compliant finishes as a result, including powder coating, e-coating, and rack and barrel plating.
Our RoHS compliant finishes are the product of our state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly engineering controls, and our technicians are fully trained and equipped to not just meet but exceed all the latest regulatory requirements.
