REACH and RoHS

Extruded aluminium profiles that are made from alloys supplied by Sapa Profiler AB and finished at one of our own finishing facilities or machined at one of our machining facilities all meet the requirements of REACH and the RoHS directive.

REACH

REACH chemicals legislation: REACH* is a European regulation that governs the use of chemicals and replaced large parts of the Swedish legislative framework on chemicals on 1 June 2007.

RoHS* is a EU directive, 2011/65/EU, that restricts the content of certain chemicals in electrical and electronic products. The following substances are limited by the directive: Lead (Pb 0.1%), hexavalent chromium (Cr 0.1%), cadmium (Cd 0.01%), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB 0.1%) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE 0.1%).

REACH lists a number of chemicals and substances. These lists restrict usage and apply authorisation requirements to certain chemicals and substances that can have a harmful effect on human health and the environment. The lists are regularly updated and new substances are added all the time. Many of the substances and chemicals that are listed are mutagens, carcinogens, allergens or reproductive toxins.

Extruded aluminium profiles that are made from alloys supplied by Sapa Profiler AB and finished at one of our own finishing facilities or machined at one of our machining facilities all meet the requirements of REACH and the RoHS directive.

Products that are given custom finishes or are fitted with custom accessories require special assessment.
