Custom Skylight Seals Case Study

Custom Skylight SealCustom skylight seals need to meet demanding environmental and load testing requirements. When a skylight company faced a sealing challenge, Elasto Proxy provided the perfect solution on a tight timetable.

Skylights are specialized windows that builders install in a roof or ceiling. They admit natural light, provide a visual connection to the outdoor environment, and support passive solar heating.

RoHS Compliance and Rubber Products

RoHS ComplianceRestriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) isn’t just about wires, chips, switches, and circuit boards. RoHS compliance involves component-level rubber parts, too.

Companies that do business in European Union (EU) member states need to comply with RoHS, an EU directive that restricts the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products and equipment. RoHS compliance won’t ensure your success in Europe, but non-compliance can have serious consequences. In addition to fines, penalties, and lost sales, businesses that violate RoHS requirements may have their products returned by customs officials.

To avoid RoHS violations, product designers and material buyers need to understand current and future EU requirements. Because RoHS is a series of directives rather than a single directive, designers and buyers need to account for the original RoHS directive (2002/95/EC), RoHS 2 (2011/65/EU), and RoHS requirements that will take effect in July 2019. As a global provider of sealing and insulation solutions, Elasto Proxy can help you to achieve and maintain RoHS compliance at the component level. (more…)
