Environmental Regulations on Reflow Exhaust

What are the typical environmental regulations in the US for reflow exhaust if any? We are using a lead free process although I assume it has more to do with the flux than the alloys used. Do we need to look into something like a Title V permit?

The Smart Sonic 440-R SMT detergent is certified safe and effective by the EPA (I downloaded the documents from their web site). Is this true of the other chemistries that you referenced? If so, where can I find the documentation? If not, why not?

Hi, I think most of us in Europe in this industry know that the Pb regulations are not really based on any real environmental issue --rather a preceived one. The industrie's lobby does not seem to be effective ,so it is likely that the lead ban will

Hello Mark, EPA Certification can be a tremendous help to the user that is evaluating new cleaning processes. Let�s face it, if it wasn�t for the Earth�s ozone layer, everyone would still be using CFCs and a vapor degreaser to clean stencils, PCBs
