The RoHS Directive specifically addresses the reduction of use and ultimate elimination of the following substances:
                       
                       
Cadmium
Hexavalent Chromium
Lead
Mercury
PBBs (Polybrominated biphenyls)
PBDEs (Polybrominated diphenyl ethers)
                       
                       
 
 

These materials must be replaced by other substances by July 1, 2006. The use of mercury, lead, cadmium and hexavalent chromium will still be allowed under specific circumstances, or certain end product applications. These exceptions for the four materials are detailed in the Directive's Annex.

Notes:

 
     
  1. This RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) list represents the status of Airpax brand Circuit Breakers as related to the DIRECTIVE 2002/95/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 January 2003. This Directive deals with the restriction of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. This Directive places restrictions on the use of, or bans the use of 6 substances. Those substances are lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). The use of mercury, lead, cadmium and hexavalent chromium will still be allowed under specific circumstances, or certain end product applications. Those exceptions for the 4 materials are detailed in the Directives’ ANNEX.  
     
  2. The 0202 product family is considered a military product first and a commercial product second. As such, platings must meet military tin whiskering specifications and may contain lead.  
     
  3. This RoHS list was last updated September 9, 2008.
