MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET FOR FR4

 

I. CHEMICAL PRODUCT

PRODUCT NAME: FR4

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY CALL: (24 Hours/Day, 7 Days/Week) (608) 784-6070

 

II. COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS

 

INGREDIENT NAME                            CAS#                                WEIGHT%

Continuous Filament Fiber Glass   (65997-17-3)                             40-70
Copper                                                 (7440-50-8)                                  8-28
Epoxy Resin                                        (26265-08-7)                               20-30

 

Trace impurities and additional material names not listed above may also appear in the Regulatory Information section (#15) towards the end of the MSDS. These materials may be listed for local ‘Right to Know” compliance and for other reasons.

 

III. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

 

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW: A nonflammable, sheet material. Dust, when machined or punched may cause skin or eye irritation. Fumes, if decomposed may irritate eyes, nose, and throat.

 

POTENTIAL HEALTH HAZARDS

 

SKIN: Dust may cause moderate skin irritation.

 

EYES: Dust may cause moderate eye irritation. Fumes may irritate eyes.

 

INHALATION: Fibrous glass dust may be released from the fiberglass cloth substrate when machined. ACGIH

TLV is 10 mg/m3 TWA for particles <5 microns in diameter.

 

INGESTION: Not determined.

 

DELAYED EFFECTS: Our product is reinforced with continuous filament fiberglass. Dust generated from the

 cutting, grinding, machining, etc., would not be expected to produce respirable particles. IARC considers

 continuous glass filaments as unclassifiable or probably non-carcinogenic.

 

Ingredients found on one of the OSHA designated carcinogen lists are listed below.


Ingredient Name           NTP Status         IARC Status        OSHA List

None                                   None                      None                    None

IV. FIRST AID MEASURES

 

SKIN: Wash in flowing water or shower. Remove contaminated clothing.

 

EYE: Irrigate with flowing water for 15 minutes. If irritation persists, consult a physician.

 

INHALATION: If overcome by dust or smoke, move to fresh air. If not breathing, give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Call physician.

 

INGESTION: If large amounts are ingested, consult physician.

 

ADVICE TO PHYSICIAN: Treat symptomatically

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Water, CO2 and dry chemical

 

UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: May give off toxic hydrogen bromide when thermally

decomposed.

 

SPECIAL FIREFIGHTING PRECAUTIONS/INSTRUCTIONS: Firemen should wear proper protective equipment and positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus.

 

 

VI. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

 

IN CASE OF SPILL OR OTHER RELEASE: Always wear recommended personal protection equipment.

 

Spills and releases may have to be reported to Federal and/or local authorities. See the Regulatory Information section (#15) regarding reporting requirements.

 

VII. HANDLING AND STORAGE

 

NORMAL HANDLING: Always wear recommended personal protective equipment. The primary exposure route

is inhalation of dust when machine/punched or from fumes or vapors when heated.

 

STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS: N/A

 

VIII. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

 

ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Use local exhaust ventilation to control dust.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

 

SKIN PROTECTION: For brief contact to dust, no precautions other than clean body-covering clothing should

be needed. Use gloves and aprons when prolonged or frequently repeated contact occurs.

 

EYE PROTECTION: Use appropriate eye protection when machining material.

 

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Atmospheric levels of Fibrous glass and Copper Dust should be maintained

below exposure guidelines. When respiratory protection is required for certain operations, use a NIOSH-approved dust respirator.

 

ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS: N/A

 

EXPOSURE GUIDELINES: Guidelines exist for the following ingredients

XI. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

 

IMMEDIATE (ACUTE) EFFECTS: Dust may cause moderate eye, skin and respiratory irritation.

 

DELAYED (SUBCHRONIC & CHRONIC) EFFECTS: NTP has determined that respirable size glasswool may be reasonably anticipated to be a carcinogen. IARC has also classified glasswool as a possible carcinogen. Our product is reinforced with continuous filament fiberglass. Dust generated from the cutting, grinding, machining, etc. would not be expected to produce respirable particles. IARC considers glass filaments as unclassifiable or probably non-carcinogenic.

 

OTHER DATA: The toxicity of the combustion products was evaluated in a similar product with 95% confidence limits; the LC5O was calculated (Probit Analysis) to be 40.4 (32.3-69.9) mgIL. The LC5O of the standard reference material, Douglas fir, is 27.1 mg/L.
