Berger Paints Bangladesh has recently obtained an RoHS certification from a testing service provider based in the UK stating that its powder coating products are free from hazardous heavy metals.
The Restriction of the Use of certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) is a product level compliance based on a European Union directive.
Products compliant with this directive do not exceed allowable amounts of restricted materials. There are third party testing services available to analyse an organisation's products for levels of restricted materials.
Berger offers two powder coating solutions, SupraKoat (premium) and SmartKoat (mid-tier), for home appliances, electrical equipment, fans, furniture, auto components, gas cylinders, hardware tools etc, according to a press release.
All of Berger's powder coating products are RoHS certified and environmentally friendly, thus safe for consumers and users of the products at industrial facilities, the statement added.
"We are always meticulous to make all Berger products free from hazardous materials," said AKM Sadeque Nawaj, general manager for the paint maker's marketing.
"As a testimonial of our commitment to health and safety, we have obtained the RoHS certification for powder coatings," he said.
