-In 2009, halogen-free materials were extended to all sunmate products (bromine (BR) ≤ 900ppm, chlorine (CL) ≤ 900ppm, total concentration of chlorine (CL) + bromine (BR) ≤ 1500ppm in homogeneous materials. For all halogen-free products, Somerset provides relevant material composition table and third-party test report to prove the conformity of products.
-All the pins of sunmate product series are lead-free electroplating.
The RoHS (on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment) was issued from the RoHS directive in July 2006; the Chinese ROHS directive "administrative measures for pollution control of electronic information products" was issued in March 2007; and the reach regulation "registration, evaluation, permission and restriction of chemicals" in June 2007 showed that the control of environmental load substances was increasingly strengthened.
