"Green" manufacturing also means "lead-free" and "halogen-free"

New initiatives regarding toxic substances are being implemented around the world. The European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) industry initiatives are in place to produce electronic and electrical equipment that do not contain certain toxic substances, including lead, mercury, and cadmium.  Our instruments can quickly detect if your printed circuit board (PCB) finishes, leads, terminations, solder and internal/external interconnects contain restricted substances. 

Whether manufacturing leaded or lead-free electronics, screening all components to ensure the correct materials are being used can prevent the loss or degradation of reliability-critical systems, avoid filamentary corrosion (more commonly known as “whiskering”) and protect your brand ...and profits.
