Environment Friendly Manufacturing
Response to RoHS Directive
silex is working to completely abandon the chemical substances regulated by the RoHS directive, such as lead and cadmium, and other hazardous chemical substances that we have established environmental standards for. We are implementing this activity throughout all divisions related to manufacturing (Sales, Design, Procurement, Manufacturing, and Quality Assurance).
We have been delivering RoHS compliant products (also compliant to silex's original environmental standards) since June 2004, and as of January 2009, all of our products, except for certain OEM products, are compliant with the RoHS Directive.
