Information

RoHS

On July 1st 2006 the RoHS (Restriction of use of certain Hazardous Substances) restricted the use of lead based materials (and other materials) in the manufacture of electronic and electronic equipment. RoHS has a fundamental impact on the electronics industry. It is closely linked with, and takes its scope from, the WEEE (Waste and Electronic Equipment) Directive.

REACH

On March 1st 2018 restrictions on the sale of lead, both on its own and in a mixture (including in solder products), came into force. Whilst the use of lead was already restricted for specified uses (Entry 63 of REACH Annex XVII), the classification of lead as a Category 1A reproductive toxicant means that additional restrictions on the supply of leaded solders to customers applies.

This means that as of 1 March 2018 Warton is no longer able to supply leaded solders to the general public where the individual concentration is equal to or greater than 0.03% for mixtures containing lead metal powder (such as Solder Paste), and 0.3% for mixtures containing lead in massive form (such as Solder Wire, Bar Solder, Tinmans).
