Matrix Metrologies Inc. has introduced a new line of XRF tools for compliance testing and monitoring of prohibitive metals for the EU directives RoHS/WEEE for the circuit board and packaging electronics and plating industries. The Benchtop XRF systems provide non-destructive measurement of total lead, mercury, chromium, bromine, and cadmium in almost any material, and allow for lead content quantification for reverse RoHS applications including military and aerospace demands requiring 2-5 % minimum lead content. In addition, the company offers certified reference standards that can be used for tool audit and measurement integrity management. According to Matrix, the spectrometers can be configured with gas-proportional, Si-PIN, or silicon drift type detectors and primary beam filtration to provide rapid, non-destructive verification of RoHS Pb-free compliance providing the Pb sensitivity and measurement confidence required at the 1000-ppm action level, as well as, the precise determination of eutectic levels of Pb when specified.
