REACH – SVHC

Aspect:

REACH (Regulation EG) Nr. 1907/2006

Importance:

Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals

Purpose:

EU Chemicals Ordinance on Harmonization and Simplification of Chemicals Law.

Affected substances:

As a result of this registration, ECHA classifies these substances according to their hazardousness to various aspects. The substances of very high concern are listed in a separate list (REACH – Substances of Very High Concern) which is reissued twice a year.

Scope:

KUBE PIR Granulates

KUBE PIR Films

UL 94

Aspect:

UL94 (contents same IEC/DIN EN 60695-11-10 and – 20 / CAN/CSA C 22.2 No. 017)

Importance:

Plastic combustibility test for parts in devices and applications of Underwriters Laboratories.

Purpose:

Describes a method for assessing and classifying the flammability of plastics.

UL 94

Aspect:

UL94 (contents same IEC/DIN EN 60695-11-10 and – 20 / CAN/CSA C 22.2 No. 017)

Importance:

Plastic combustibility test for parts in devices and applications of Underwriters Laboratories.

Purpose:

Describes a method for assessing and classifying the flammability of plastics.

Classifications:

HB:    slow burning of a horizontally clamped sample (HB75 / HB 40)

V-2:    extinguishing a vertically clamped sample within 30 seconds. Burning dripping of plastic melt allowed.

V-1:    Same as V-2, but no burning dripping of plastic melt allowed. Maximum 60 seconds afterglow.

V-0:    Like V-1, but extinguishing the flame within 10 seconds. Maximum 30 seconds afterglow.

5VB:   extinguishing a vertically clamped sample after 5 flashes for 5 seconds each; no dripping allowed.

5VA:   like 5VB, additional test on a horizontally clamped plate; neither dripping nor formation of burn holes with a diameter> 1mm are permitted.

The achieved classification is registered in publicly accessible, so-called yellow cards (examination at UL or an accredited test laboratory).

Scope:

The linear burning rate of KUBE Electronics HDPE Lens 0.5mm Thick Model 22302 was 50mm/min. Therefore it meets with the Horizontal Burning Test; HB requirements based on the burning rate. No yellow card available.

California 65

Aspect:

California Proposition 65 (CP65)

Importance:

The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (California State Identification Law).

Purpose:

Protecting drinking water sources from toxic substances that are carcinogenic, may cause birth defects or other reproductive hazards and may be present in consumer products (not industrial products) and exposure is expected.

Key message:

No one may, in the course of its business activities, knowingly and intentionally expose an individual to a chemical known to the State (California) as carcinogenic or toxic to reproduction, without giving that individual a clear and proportionate warning beforehand.

Affected substances:

Currently, about 900 substances are listed at the authority (OEHHA). For 400 of these substances no exposure to consumer products is expected. Exposure limits are defined for 250 of these substances, below which no damage is expected (Safe Harbor Levels).

Scope:

KUBE Warning (if required):

 

Warning:

Using this product can expose you to chemicals including XXX which is known to the state of California to cause cancer.
