RoHS-Screening with XRF

The RoHS directive (EU directive 2002/95/EG) aims to restrict dangerous substances commonly used in electronics / electronic equipment. Limit values apply to lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium and polybrominated biphenyls / polybrominated diphenyl ethers (Pb, Cd, Hg, Hex-Cr, PBBE/PBDE).

Many companies along the supply chain have an economic interest in ensuring due diligence. Quality assurance via RFA-screening is the method of choice to ensure RoHS-compliance in the manufacturing of electronics.
