Captive Fastener Corporation is compliant with the criteria required by the European Union RoHS directive, as it applies to certain restricted hazardous substances in the fasteners we currently manufacture.
Material and finish content of the Captive Fastener products does not exceed the acceptable levels allowed for lead, zinc, mercury, PBB, or PBDE. Also, our standard passivation process for stainless steel components complies with RoHS requirements.
Please note that a small portion of our steel products with zinc chromate in our current inventory may contain a hexavalent chromate finish. If it is necessary to receive RoHS compliant product, be sure to indicate this requirement when ordering and we will provide it.
Also, the standard CFE series self-clinching locking nuts have a cadmium finish which does not comply with RoHS. However, a new version is available that does not contain cadmium to meet RoHS requirements which has an ML suffix.
Also, Captive Fastener Corporation strives to be environmentally friendly in all aspects of their manufacturing processes, to assure a healthy and safe environment for everyone. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
