RoHS Compliant PCBs

The Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive prohibits the use of certain metals in electrical and electronic equipment. The metals that are restricted from use are lead, cadmium, mercury, polybrominated diphenyl ether, hexavalent chromium, and polybrominated biphenyls. Hence, the electronic industry is adopting lead-free PCBs components. Industries manufacturing printed circuit boards (PCBs) have started focusing on the manufacture of lead-free PCBs. Twisted Traces is one of the leading PCB manufacturers who offer lead-free and RoHS compliance PCBs.

Why Lead-Free PCBs?

When it comes to the use of lead in electronic products, it is important to recycle the used lead as well as find alternatives to this material. Manufacturers of both PCB’s and electronic products should be concerned about the lead used in their products. Petroleum exemplifies the positive effects of banning lead. When lead in petroleum was banned, the level of lead in bloodstreams decreased. By not using lead in PCBs, one can expect a safe environment within and outside us.

Advantages Of Lead-Free RoHS Compliant PCBs

There are a number of advantages of using lead-free RoHS compliant PCBs in your designs. Here are a few major advantages:
  1. RoHS compliant PCBs make use of lead-free components and solder. Being lead-free, the components and solder paste do not pose any danger to the workers even if they come in contact with a person. Thus, in a way, lead-free PCBs help maintain the safety of workers.
  2. Another important advantage of these PCBs is the lead-free solder stays in place when in liquid state.
  3. The high-temperature resilience property of a lead-free PCB solder helps prevent failures under complex working conditions.
