Advanced Copper Foil Announces New Arsenic-Free Copper Foils


Reading time ( words)

Advanced Copper Foil and its supply partner, Circuit Foil Luxemburg, are pleased to introduce its new arsenic-free copper foils. Effective immediately, the ED copper foils TWLS and TZA will be manufactured as 100% arsenic-free. All traces of arsenic have been removed from the treatment process of these two copper foil types. There is no change in the base copper foil or its properties. As mandated by REACH and European Union Regulation, toxic substances such as arsenic, will be phased out. Arsenic is identified as a poisonous substance that can have severe adverse effects on humans and the environment.   

“The printed circuit board industry is constantly changing, and we are pleased to announce this significant development to our copper foil supply chain. The elimination of arsenic from the electronics industry is an important step towards environmental and social responsibility”, says Kieran Healy, managing director of Advanced Copper Foil.
