As an ISO9001:2008 and ISO14001:2004 approved company; Mars Antennas & RF
Systems is committed to promoting a green environment for the betterment of

In response to environmental guidelines and legislation enacted, Mars has adopted
the policy of compliance to the RoHS2 (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)
Directive as set forth by the European Union. We will, therefore, meet the
requirement of compliance for:

Hexavalent Chromium (CrVI) < 0.1%
Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB) < 0.1%
Polybrominated Diphenyl Esters (PBDE) < 0.1%
Phased Approach:
Beginning in 2005, Mars set up a multi-functional team to develop a phased
approach to implementation. This method was set up to provide a working plan for
implementation that would take into account the needs of customers.
1. Forward Compatibility
The ability of our existing product families to withstand Pb-free reflow
conditions using Sn/Ag/Cu or similar solder alloys with a melting temperature
of about 240 degrees C.
2. Backward Compatibility
The ability of our Pb-free product families to be compatible with Pb containing
materials used by customers who have not made the transition to Pb-Free
assembly processes.
3. Pb-free Solder
The selection of appropriate formulations of Pb-free solders that would
provide equal, or better, solderability, joint reliability and process capability.
4. Product Status Determination
Evaluation of the various product categories, case styles and families for their
RoHS2/Pb-free status. Identification of the changes in materials and
processes needed to develop new compliant products.
5. Component Search, Evaluation and Selection
The sourcing and qualification of various alternate platings, finishes and
material composition needed to develop new compliant products.
6. Management Decision
The development of criteria and policy with regard to issues such as
maintaining dual stocks, product identification and segregation, and timing of
7. Implementation
Availability of RoHS2/Pb-free compliant products/parts to satisfy customer
