According to the Directive 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament, in the Electronics Industry, the use of certain hazardous substances to the environment were restricted (RoHS requirements). In the same way, facilitating the recycle of end-of life vehicles, the use of the same materials were also restricted. (EC Principle Requirements, enacted on 1-st of July, 2007)
In the case of surface treated parts, it refers to the restriction for the use of primarily coatings containing cadmium, lead and hexavalent chromium compounds, as well as, certain organic matters.
VT Metal Kft entirely suits these requirements, even in our selection of coatings, from 2002 we have already had the increased corrosion-resistant passivation free from hexavalent chromium.
As in many cases in the chemical processes it is difficult to fully preclude the possibility of the presence of certain materials, we have defined the limit value, according to the above norms, as not O ,but the following values:
- Hexalvalent chromium: 1,000 ppm
- Lead: 1,000 ppm
- Cadmium: 100 ppm
