As known, the 1st of July 2006 the European directive 2002/95/EC that governs the use of some dangerous substances in electric and electronic equipments, came into force. This substance list is also well known as RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances).
Lab Circuits certificates that, from the entire RoHS list, lead is the only substance found in our printed circuit boards which have a HAL (Hot Air Leveling) tin-lead soldering finish. The rest of soldering finishes (immersion silver, electroless nickel-immersion gold, unleaded Hal and immersion tin )do not contain lead and, therefore, the European directive is 100% carried out.
