Storm Products Company / Cable Solutions Manufacturing and inside sales: 214-637-1381 9215 Premier Row / Dallas TX. 75247 DATE: March 1st 2005 TO: Storm Products Cable Solutions Customers Re: WEEE / RoHS Environmental Regulation Compliant Cable To Whom It May Concern:

To the best of our knowledge all bulk wire and cable components {wire, shield materials, insulation and jacket compounds} manufactured by and purchased from Storm Products after September 1st will not contain these restrict hazardous materials: {lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, or PBBs or PBDEs (brominated flame retardants)}. Storm Products does not routinely analyze our supplier's products for substances that are not purposely added. Therefore we are confident that, if present at all, the levels of heavy metals or PBB and PBDE are below the limits of the following: · WEEE / Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (2002/96/EC) which sets a limit for unintended trace levels at 100 ppm for cadmium and 1000 ppm for the other metals, and bans the use of PBB and PBDE in all electrical equipment as of July 1 2006. RoHS / Restriction of Hazardous Substances 2002/95/EC) which sets a limit for unintended trace levels at 100 ppm for cadmium and 1000 ppm for the other metals, and bans the use of PBB and PBDE in all electrical equipment as of July 1 2006. o "For the purposes of Article 5(1)(a), a maximum concentration value of 0.1% by weight in homogeneous materials for lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) and of 0.01% by weight in homogeneous materials for cadmium shall be tolerated."

·

Exceptions & addendums: · New and existing wire and cable products, explicitly designed and manufactured to satisfy RoHS requirements will immediately be in full compliance. · Storm will notify customers when a product is known to contain, or we are unsure of it meeting acceptable levels of restricted substances which prevent them from being RoHS compliant. · Storm makes no claim that an end product is RoHS compliant when the customer supplied materials or components are utilized. · The customer is responsible for ensuring a product is RoHS compliant when Storm has no design control authority or input. · The following cable part numbers are manufactured with FR-TPE that contain unacceptable levels of PBDE. SP series {4650,4659,4660,4726,4808,4884,4955} and #041494-2. · The TPE supplier's letter detailing the levels of restricted PBDE, in the FR-TPE compounds is available upon request. If you wish to discuss altering a current cable design that may not comply with these directives, contact a Storm Products representative. Storm can provide direction on alternate wire metal alloys and insulation compounds that satisfy these requirements without significantly degrading a cable performance. Please distribute this letter within your organization or to your end customers. Sincerely,

Jeff Hecker
