ACRYLITE® Product Compliance and Certificates

The REACH legislation creates a system for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and restriction of CHemicals in the European Union. By eliminating chemicals on the REACH Restricted Substances List and the Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) List, manufacturers help to protect human health and the environment.

The RoHS legislation seeks to restrict certain hazardous substances from electrical and electronic equipment made or imported into the European Union. This helps protect workers and the environment, especially during recycling of electronic goods.

California consumer must receive a clear and reasonable warning when a product contains certain chemicals that can expose them to harm. The list of chemicals and their exposure levels are published by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment.

Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act of 2012 requires supply chain auditing when compounds of Tantalum (Ta), Tin (Sn), Tungsten (W), or Gold (Au) are intentionally added to affect the functionality of a product. These compounds are known by the acronym 3TG. The legislation attempts to reduce sourcing of the 3TG metals from conflict regions. Roehm America does not intentionally add 3TG compounds to any products.

The US Food and Drug Administration regulates acrylic polymers for food contact under the Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, Part 177, Section 1010 (21 CFR 177.1010). Four types of ACRYLITE® sheet meet this regulation.

Electrical device manufacturers rely on ACRYLITE® products for sign faces, luminaire diffusers, screen protectors, and more. The following products are UL recognized components in the category QMFZ2 - Component Plastics, UL File Number E54671.
