Omni pcb will continue to monitor changes and additions for each of these regulatory statues and laws. We have been in contact with our suppliers and vendors regarding RoHS, REACH and Conflict Minerals requirements. All of them have responded with statements of conformance in regard to each. The following information is specific to providing our customers with RoHS compliant products. It outlines options and provides information related to producing PCBs that meet the needs of our customers and the RoHS directive.
Our RoHS compliant boards are produced using laminate materials of varying decomposition temperatures with a number of different final finishes. We can provide you with a lead-free solder finish using SN100CL – a lead free alloy of 99.3% tin/ 0.6% copper with a trace of nickel. It is an alternative to more expensive finishes and makes a flatter pad than its leaded counterpart. We can also finish plate your boards with either electro-plated nickel/gold, electro less nickel immersion gold or immersion silver.
The laminate materials that we are processing RoHS products on are capable of withstanding temperatures between 260º and 288º C for 20 seconds or more depending on the laminate selected.

Standard and Custom Spec PCB’s That Meet the RoHS Directive
Omni pcb is currently producing both Standard and Custom Spec PCB’s that meet the RoHS Directive. To reach that goal it is important that our circuit boards not only be lead free but also meet the restricted concentration levels for mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, Polybrominated biphenyls and Polybrominated diphenylethers. We are using raw materials and processes that enable us to meet those restrictions.
Currently any printed circuit board that we produce does not contain any mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, Polybrominated biphenyls or Polybrominated diphenylethers. Boards we produce that are not processed using leaded solder for a final finish will meet all of the RoHS’ restrictions. These products would include those that have lead free solder, electro less nickel immersion gold, immersion silver, electroplated gold, white tin or finishes other than tin-lead solder.
