Lead-Free Soldering

GLYN WEEE Reg. Nr. :
DE 77660497

Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS) / Lead-free solderability of electronic components

The Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS) was issued by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union on February 27, 2003. This directive demands the prohibition of the use of several materials that create a health hazard in electronic devices that are marketed after July 1, 2006.

We at GLYN have also addressed this topic and assembled a GLYN RoHS Roadmap for you.

Generally, a distinction is made between:

  • Lead-free solderability
    Electronic components that, due to the nature of their solder joints, are suitable for the use of lead-free solder.
  • RoHS compliance
    The Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS), as soon as it becomes effective, prohibits the use of the following substances in electronic devices / electronic components that are marketed after July 1, 2006:
    Lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybromated biphenyl (PBB), polybromated diphenyl ether (each dependent on weight proportion).


GLYN RoHS Roadmap:
  • Since August 2004:
    Successive classification of products from the current GLYN portfolio (approx. 16,000)
  • Since October 2004:
    Indication of the recorded classifications in GLYN order confirmations, invoices and delivery bills
  • Since January 2005:
    Our homepage provides, in addition to general information from our manufacturers, lists of articles with the corresponding RoHS status for downloading. These lists will also be continuously updated.
    Upon request, customers are provided with a list of components that have been shipped since January 1, 2003 with the corresponding classification (as far as recorded). Information about replacement types will be successively integrated into our article master database.
