Information about Material Contents of Diotec Products

All of our products are compliant to RoHS/WEEE/ELV and REACH

As a European company with headquarters in Germany and worldwide customer base, we are obliged to fulfill  environmental legislations such as RoHS/WEEE/ELV or REACH. The contents of all of our products can be found in the according material data sheet accessible via the article search.


Since 01 January 2006 we deliver all of our goods compliant to EU directives RoHS/WEEE/ELV. The change-over of production was already made from May 2004 on, the label of compliant devices is marked by a green logo. This green logo is the only characteristic to distinguish compliant from non- compliant parts, which might have been shipped during change-over phase 2004 to 2005.

Leadfree Tinning, Solderability and CE-Mark

  • Leadfree Tinning of Outer Contacts
    For dip tinning of our devices a Sn95.5Ag3.8Cu0.7 alloy is used, for galvanically tinned parts pure Sn.
  • All parts (even older, non lead free ones) are solderable with lead free processes
    Allowed soldering parameters (see J-STD-020C/JESD22A111 ): max 260°C for no longer than 5 s more information
  • CE Marking of our parts is not necessary
    We produce and supply semiconductor components, but no electrical or electronic equipment. As such, our parts do not need a CE mark.

Our articles and their packaging materials do not contain "substances of very high concern" (SVHC) included in the Candidate List* (date 07/07/2017) nor the Authorisation List* (Annex XIV, date 11/01/2016) according to article 59 (1, 10) of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (“REACH”) (see the website of the European Chemicals Agency (EChA) http://echa.europa.eu/) in a concentration above 0.1 % by weight.


Halogen-free devices

“RoHS” restricts

  • Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB)
  • Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether (PBDE)

Other bromine compounds are still allowed!
As an example, in the plastic molding compound of some of our devices, a bromine-containing flame retardant is used: Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBA, CAS 79-94-7), in full accordance to RoHS.

Nevertheless, Diotec is already offering halogenfree devices. For details, please refer to below information.

DecaBDE / PFOS / PAHs / DMF / PFOA / Phtalate

The molding compound used for Diotec products is free of

  • DecaBDE (DecaBromoDiphenylEther)
  • PFOS (PerFluoroOctaneSulfonate)
  • PAHs (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons)
  • PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid)

Diotec devices and their packaging are free of

  • DMF (DiMethylFumarate)
  • Phtalate
  • PAHs (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons)
Conflict Region Materials

Diotec takes its responsibility as a global partner very seriously. We work vigorously with our suppliers of raw materials that none of these materials come from any Conflict Regions, such as some areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo. We work with our supply chain to insure that we maintain the policy not supporting Conflict material suppliers. An EICC Conflict Free Minerals Template (CMRT) including a list of our conflict free smelters (CFS) can be provided on request.
