6c: Copper alloy containing up to 4% lead by weight
7a: Lead in high melting temperature type solders (i.e. lead- based alloys containing 85% by weight or more lead)
7b: Lead in solders for servers, storage and storage array systems, network infrastructure equipment for switching, signaling, transmission, and network management for telecommunications
7c-I: Electrical and electronic components containing lead in a glass or ceramic other than dielectric ceramic in capacitors, e.g. piezoelectronic devices, or in a glass or ceramic matrix compound
7c-II: Lead in dielectric ceramic in capacitors for a rated voltage of 125 V AC or 250 V DC or higher
7c-IV: Lead in PZT based dielectric ceramic materials for capacitors being part of integrated circuits or discrete semiconductors (Expires 21 July, 2016)
13a: Lead in white glasses used for optical applications
13b: Cadmium and lead in filter glasses and glasses used for reflectance standards
15: Lead in solders to complete a viable electrical connection between semiconductor die and carrier within integrated circuit flip chip packages
This list reflects currently claimed exemptions; some products have used additional exemptions in the past. F5 works with our suppliers and manufacturing partners to ensure expiring exemptions are phased out prior to the sunset date.
Since 2005, F5 products have been compliant with the EU RoHS directive 2002/95/EC, and now with 2011/65/EU. Because of the growing number of countries with similar laws, F5 has chosen to build all products to meet the most stringent substance restriction standards.
F5 Networks includes a Hazardous Substance Table in English and Chinese with each product.
