5 Benefits of Chemical Free PCBs

Aug 24, 2016

Today, air is contaminated with various pollutants, which are causing severe health problems. Like all other industrial segments, PCB manufacturers are making efforts to minimize and eliminate chemicals in PCBs without compromising on their quality. They are also doing their best to reduce their carbon footprints. In the previous post, we discussed various types of chemicals used in PCB manufacturing, and popular chemical-free PCBs available for purchase. In this post, we will concentrate on the benefits of using chemical free PCBs.

5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Chemical Free PCBS

There are various reasons why you should consider chemical free PCBs in your applications. Here are five major reasons for doing so:

  • Safe to Use: As the name suggests, no harsh chemicals are used in the production of these circuit boards. This means these circuit boards are safe to use, and there is no risk of chemical leaching. By investing in these PCBs, you are giving a chemical-free PCB experience to your clients. Also, you are ensuring that people involved in assembly and manufacturing remain safe, too.
  • Recyclable and Reusable: Chemical-free construction of PCBs makes them recyclable and reusable. Lead-free PCBs can be reused after recycling, and halogen-free PCBs offer easy disposal at the end of their service lives.
  • Increased Use in Healthcare and Food Industry: Various types of PCBs form the core of various automation equipment used in the healthcare and food industry. However, chemical-free PCBs can provide benefits of performance along with safety manufacturing and supply chains.
  • Offers a Wide Range of Possibilities for Wearable Technology Devices: Future-friendly wearable technology devices are among the bestselling consumer goods. These devices incorporate technical features and functions that help people monitor and manage their lives effectively. Wearable devices such as pedometers, smart watches, activity trackers, and head mounted optical devices come in contact with the skin. Most of these devices are controlled by PCBs. Today, manufacturers are considering the option of chemical free PCBs because they improve the safety of these devices, and make them accessible for people with specific skin conditions too.
  • Compliance with Industrial Regulations: Many leading regulatory organizations like FDA has issued directives for companies that are into PCB manufacturing and assembling. By investing in chemical-free PCBs, you are showing your admittance towards these initiatives and building a sustainable environment for future generations.

Quality PCB manufacturers will always take care to adhere to the law and maintain their quality throughout the production process. If you have decided to invest in chemical-free PCBs, ensure that you are buying it from a reputed manufacturer who follows RoHS directives. Most of these manufacturers will readily give reviews of their chemical-free processes. If you are unable to obtain this information, or the company shows reticence to reveal it, consider another manufacturer on your list.
