Lead-Free Compliances

Additive Circuits (S) Pte Ltd is committed to provide Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) not just Lead-Free but in complying with European Union’s (EU) directive on Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS).


On June 4, 2015, the EU Commission published new Directive (EU) 2015/863 which adds 4 phthalate substances to the list of 6 already in RoHS II. These phthalates will be restricted from use starting July 22, 2019 from most EEE.

Hazardous SusbtancesConcentration Level
Lead (Pb)0.1% (100ppm)
Mercury (Hg)0.1% (100ppm)
Hexavalent Chromium (CR (VI))0.1% (100ppm)
Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBBs)0.1% (100ppm)
Polybrominated Diphenyls Ethers(PBDEs) 0.1% (100ppm)
Cadmium (Cd)0.01% (100ppm)
Phthalates (DBP, BBP, DEHP, DIBP) 



Additive Circuits is interested in supporting our customers who are complying with Europe’s RoHS as well as customers who are voluntarily eliminating hazardous substances from their processes. We recognise that a successful initiative requires the cooperation and contribution from PCB fabricators like us.


Currently Additive Circuits offers PCB with finishes that meet RoHS directive which includes Organic Solderability Preservative (OSP), Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold (ENIG), Electrolytic Nickel and Electrolytic Hard Gold.


Additive Circuits is constantly searching and performing feasibility studies for the other Lead-Free alternatives. We aspire to be a leader in supporting the requirements for Lead-Free as well as the needs of our customers. We had dedicated Application Engineers to address to this very important initiative.
