Purafil Paper Published in Circuit Insight
Purafil’s Technical Director, Chris Muller, published a paper on the impact of RoHS on IT Equipment over the last 10 years.
“From 2006 to 2008, the number of corrosion-related failures of IT/datacom equipment directly attributable to lead-free manufacturing regulations – by conservative estimates – increased by upwards of 250%. This was primarily due to failures caused by silver sulfide creep corrosion on devices using an ImmAg surface finish, corrosion of silver metal on the legs of ICs, and corrosion of silver finish component leads.”
