All of our suppliers of electrical components are at present manufacturing RoHS compliant product. However, their residual inventories of non-RoHS conforming components continue to be purged through FIFO inventory practices. As a consequence, our EBV-104 and SWT product lines and supplies of W11/W20 coils continue to be impacted. Please contact the factory if compliance issues arise.
Additionally, all Plast-O-Matic Valves, Inc. internal manufacturing procedures are RoHS compliant.
