SyncLink adapters have no known uses of any of the SVHC listed, as part of the latest 205 substances and updated by ECHA on January 16, 2020, above the 0.1% regulatory threshold. Chemical intermediaries used in manufacturing are not considered applicable. Please refer to the following ECHA list for the most current candidate list of substance: http://echa.europa.eu/candidate-list-table.

Statement on California Proposition 65

California Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause certain harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals.

MicroGate products are not intended to expose users to, release or discharge chemicals on the Proposition 65 List in normal product use and do not carry a Proposition 65 warning. MicroGate takes reasonable steps to obtain information about product content from third party suppliers to comply with warning requirements.
