ABP's RoHS Solution
ABP has been making lead-free boards since 2004. Our lead-free boards are made with laminate that have a higher Td to withstand the increased temperature and dwell times required during assembly. The surface finishes that we can offer are also RoHS compatible.
Restriction of Hazarous Substances (RoHS) is the banning of six hazardous substances. These substances are lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl and polybrominated biphenyl ethers.These substances are limited to 1000 parts per million (0.1%), with the exception of cadmium, which is restricted to 100 parts per million (0.01%). For the printed circuit board industry, the restrictions on lead and polybrominates (used as flame retardants in plastics, i.e. epoxy resins) are far-reaching.
