We release information on the presence in our products of the six substances covered by J-Moss (the marking for presence of the specific chemical substances for electrical and electronic equipment). Daikin residential air conditioners are covered by J-Moss.
Since 2001, Daikin has been determining and controlling chemical substances contained in products and we have stopped using substances specified under J-Moss. As a result, all models of our residential air conditioners (produced since July 2006) contain none of the substances exceeding the amounts under the standards.
We will continue to actively provide information about our environmentally conscious products so that we can offer customers a peace of mind when making purchases.
Also known as JIS C 0950, J-Moss is an abbreviation of "The marking for presence of the specific chemical substances for electrical and electronic equipment." J-Moss requires the labelling of electrical and electronic products containing six substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and two specified bromide fire retardants (polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE)). There are seven types of products covered: (1) personal computers, (2) unit-type air conditioners, (3) television sets, (4) refrigerators, (5) washing machines, (6) microwaves, and (7) clothes dryers.
The substances contained in Daikin residential air conditioners are shown on the table below. Note that the residential air conditioners shipped in Japan starting in 2007 bear the Japan's Green Mark eco-label.
