RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Compliance

NIS / NML Corp, a leading provider of nanotechnology-based industrial lubricant additives and fluids, has completed qualification for Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant manufacturing. 

Why is RoHS compliance important?


The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment and pollute landfills, and are dangerous in occupational exposure during manufacturing and disposal. At NIS, we take our certifications seriously. From our ISO9001 and ISO14001 certifications to our RoHS compliance, we pride ourselves on taking a vested interest in delivering high-quality products and services while being environmentally conscious.

What are the restricted materials mandated under RoHS?


The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).


Our company established a Compliance EHS and QA/QC International Teams, led by Technical Director, Dr. Hoon Kim and Dr. Alexander Margolin, COO, to obtain RoHS certification. The teams worked on developing and implementing ISO and RoHS-compliant transition programs across NIS/NML manufacturing sites worldwide. Final compliance tests were performed by Intertek, a British global assurance, inspection, product testing, and certification company headquartered in London, England. Intertek has a 130 plus history of providing Total Quality Assurance to industries worldwide.  


“We understand the great benefits that environmental compliance regulations such as RoHS bring to our customers,” said Dr. Margolin, the company’s COO.


RoHS certification for our IF-WS2 Formulated additive opens doors to use this product for manufacturers of various household appliances and industrial electrical equipment. For example, RC-X additive is incomparable for industrial lubricating oils used in refrigerator compressors and AC units. NIS / NML has several customers using the IF-WS2 nanotechnology-based dispersions for Space & Military applications.
