For analysis of RoHS restricted materials

RoHS calibration module helps manufacturers and research laboratories comply with requirements of RoHS 2 legislation. Developed in co-operation with DSM Resolve, the calibration standards provide the accurate calibration required for determination of product compliance using X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry. Accurate elemental analysis using RoHS Calibration Standards can save you money and supports your compliance to international regulations like REACH.


The RoHS Calibration Standards guarantee a high level of analytical accuracy and precision over a wide concentration range of elemental determination - from low ppm to low percentage. They offer unrivalled homogeneity and are the closest in terms of composition to official EU BCR 681k and 680k Certified Reference Materials. The concentrations are validated by analysis with multiple analytical techniques. These characteristics all allow for confident compliance.

Ideal for use with several many kinds of polypropylene and polyethylene like iPP, HDPE, LDPE, mPE, ULMWPE etc., the RoHS Calibration Standards extend Malvern Panalytical’s range of innovative industry solutions designed to meet environmental legislation challenges such as RoHS 2, WEEE and ELV. 


The RoHS calibration standards have carefully selected uncorrelated concentrations for all elements. The ultimate benefit is a high level of accuracy of the final analysis result. 

The RoHS Calibration Standards module comprises of: 

• 4 multi-element standards and a blank (4 replicates of each) in pressed discs

• Uniquely numbered certificate and documentation

• A suitcase for safe storage 

The standards consist of PE discs covering the elements and compounds regulated by RoHS 2. The following elements and concentration ranges are covered:




   Concentration range (mg/kg)


   0 - 973


   0 - 1075


   0 - 591


   0 - 976


   0 - 145


   0 - 980


   0 - 252


   0 - 345


   0 - 483


   0 - 1033


   0 - 178


RoHS Calibration Standards for XRF 

The ROHS Calibration Standards module is designed to be used in combination with Malvern Panalytical XRF instruments like the Zetium, Axios and Epsilon range of instruments. Certain hardware requirements apply. The module can be delivered as pre-calibrated solution on new systems but can also be deployed on existing instruments running SuperQ or Epsilon Software.

In addition to the complete RoHS module, a basic package is available with 2 replicates of each calibration standard.
