TPS82085: Melamine REACH SVHC - TPS82085SILR

Part Number: TPS82085
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TPSM82823

As per the REACH 17 Jan 2023 update, melamine substance should not be present more than 0.1% in homogeneous material. We are using your part TPS82085SILR in our product, which contains 3% melamine in the Acrylic + Epoxy Lacquer material.

This situation restricts us to use this part in our product in EU region.

  • Hi Saurabh,

    Shall check this internally and get back to you.

  • Hi Saurabh,

    This is correct. The total mass of melamine substance in the Acrylic + Epoxy Lacquer material is 0.012mg. This corresponds to 3% of the mass of the Acrylic + Epoxy Lacquer (0.4015mg). You could also consider using the TPSM82823 part.

  • Hi Saurabh,

    As Randy clarified to you via email, the Reach compliance is calculated at Article level (complete product level). The 3% calculation is at a homogeneous materials (only Acrylic + Epoxy Lacquer material ) level. For the Article level calculation, the total mass is 0.632gm and the concentration is less than 0.1%. So this device doesn't violate any spec.

    Best regards,
