Experts Comments

In this age of the EU directive, you should demand a material declaration sheet from the supplier who will identify the elements within the board.

There is also an IPC 1066, Labeling of PCBs and Assemblies, which list the various types of metals and assigned a code letter for the board which defines the alloy used to fabricated the board.
