On the subject of REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals), we can give you the following information:
Under REACH substances (chemicals), but not their preparations or polymers have to be registered. Our products are classified as polymers.
DMH, as a downstream user, uses substances within the formulations, which have to be registered by the manufacturers or importers - these are the suppliers of DMH or its suppliers.
DMH contacted all its suppliers regarding the preregistration and registration of substances, to make sure the availability of raw materials and products in the future, to ensure timely replacement or to be able to obtain new raw materials.
Obviously, we use all possibilities, to hold the substances available for our applications and to influence the decisions of our suppliers positively. Significant effects on future availability, and changes in terms of specific product features of our products will promptly be forwarded to our clients.
This letter is also a statement regarding your questions about the REACH Regulation, in particular SVHC in Annex 14 of the REACH Regulation.
Article 33 of the REACH Regulation commits to disclose information to you as our costumer, if our products contain SVHC substances in a mass concentration of more than 0.1%. We will inform you immediately unasked if in any of our products the threshold percentage for a SVHC material is exceeded.
This is also considered in the required response to consumer inquiries within 45 days after every update in the SVHC list.
All our customers should have got a mail with a letter that DMH silicones are over the limit according the SVHC list, dated 27.06.2018.
The same Is for DMH 301 NBR white and DMH 311 H-NBR90, update 17.01.2022.
DMH 300 NBR and DMH 307 NBR 73 are no longer affected.
According to current information, we assume that no other products do contain substances, for which this information is relevant under Article 33 - REACH-regulation.
