RoHS - Zinc Clear Trivalent

Zinc clear Trivalent is a RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substance Directive) compliant process. This directive was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union and took effect in July 2006; it is required to be enforced and become law. This directive restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. The automotive industry is currently implementing this directive in their manufacturing processes.

The six restricted substances in the RoHS directive are:

  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Cadmium
  • Hexavalent chromium
  • Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)
  • Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE)

(PBB’s and PBDE’s are flame retardants used in several plastics.)
