California Proposition 65
California Proposition 65, also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, is a California law established in 1986. The law requires California to publish a list of chemicals that the State of California has identified may cause cancer and/or reproductive toxicity.
Hi-Tech Fasteners distributes various types of fasteners and fastening products. Such products may contain Proposition 65 chemicals including cadmium, lead, nickel, beryllium, chromium and vinyl chloride. Hi-Tech Fasteners has chosen to issue a warning simply based upon its knowledge about the presence of a listed chemical without attempting evaluation regarding the level of exposure our products may contain.
The current California identified chemicals list is over 900 items. It continues to grow and is updated yearly.
