Camloc Gas Spring Hazardous Substances - RoHS

Hazardous Substances in Camloc Gas Springs

Several directives, that have recently come in to force, restrict the use of specific
hazardous substances including Lead, and hexavalent Chromium. Both of these
substances are currently present in very small quantities in Camloc Gas Springs.

The RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) directive and the WEEE (Waste
Electrical & Electronic Equipment) directive came in to force in July 2007.
The specified substances are restricted by percentage weight. The level of each
substance allowed under these directives, and the maximum levels of each substance
present in our gas springs are as follows. The level present shown is the maximum level of
each substance found in the worst-case Camloc gas spring.

Restricted Substance  Allowable
Level present worst case 
Lead (Pb) 0.1% 0.0079 %
Cadmium (Cd)  0.01% 0
Mercury (Hg) 0.1% 0
Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6+) 0.1% 0
Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) 0.1% 0
Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) 0.1% 0

All Camloc gas springs contain lower levels by weight of these restricted substances.
Therefore all Camloc Gas springs are compliant with RoHS/ WEEE directives.
