Samtec is ready for lead free

Due to the new lead free requirements of Europe and Asia, Samtec is now able to supply lead-free tin plating for all lead-free processes using Matte Tin plating.
“We have recently added a "RoHS / Lead Free" icon to our home page which provides easy access to a page with details on Samtec's environmental compliance and policies”, said Jan Hrouda, Marketing Manager at Samtec.

This new Environmental Compliance/Lead Free Initiative page also includes links to, and information on, the European ELV Legislation and the WEEE and RoHS Directives. In addition, this page offers links to Samtec's Environmental Policy Statement, Compliant Product lists, an interactive Material Declaration program, as well as several other lead free information sources. Information regarding Lead Free Processing and Plating is also available on this page.

Samtec will continue to support customers requiring products not compliant with the EU Directives such as those specified for military, aerospace and specialty applications.
