Ceramic Capacitors FAQ


Are there any chip multilayer ceramic capacitor products that comply with the European RoHS Directive?

All of the chip multilayer ceramic capacitor products in this catalog comply with the EU RoHS Directive.

Some products among the chip multilayer ceramic capacitors manufactured in the past were applicable to the RoHS directive exemption No.7 (c)-III.

Currently, we are promoting total abolition of products that include lead, along with measures to reduce environmental impact controlled substances in the market. According to the revisions of the EU RoHS, we request customers to consider changing capacitors that include lead in the dielectric ceramics with lead-free products, as products containing lead will be prohibited after January 1, 2013.

No. Contents of Exceptions Period
7(c)-III Lead in dielectric ceramics of capacitors with rated voltages of less than 125VAC or 250VDC Prohibited as of January 1, 2013. After enactment, it is limited to spare parts only for electrical and electric equipment marketed before January 1, 2013.
