To whom it may concern,
The above directives establish rules on the restriction of the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). Substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), and four different phthalates (DEHP, BBP, BBP, DIBP). Per the directives, ‘electrical and electronic equipment’ or ‘EEE’ means equipment which is dependent on electric currents or electromagnetic fields in order to work properly and equipment for the generation, transfer and measurement of such currents and fields. Products listed in the standards include; medical devices, industrial controls, household appliances, telecommunications equipment, consumer electronics, sports equipment, lighting, and electrical tools.
RobbJack Corporation manufactures rotary cutting tools from hard metal blanks containing primarily tungsten carbide (~90%) and cobalt (~10%), and none of the substances banned by the above directives. None of the restricted substances are knowingly added to PVD coatings by deposition processes or the raw materials used, as certified by materials suppliers. While our products are naturally excluded and compliant, RobbJack Corporation cannot certify the compliancy with the above directives of the final product of our customers.
