COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS

Components

Material

CASE NUMBER

INERT POLYIMIDE FILM 100

Exposure limits for the following may apply:

DIMETHYL ACETAMIDE (residual in film) 127-­19-­5 <1
POLYIMIDE POLYMER (as nuisance dust)

Components (Remarks)

All reportable ingredients are listed in the TSCA Chemical Substance Inventory.

HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

Potential Health Effects

INHALATION: Not a probable route of exposure from film.

For the polymer from which the film is made, DuPont

Recommends treating polymer dust as a nuisance particulate.

SKIN CONTACT: No irritation is expected from handling film. Less than 1 ppm dim ethyl acetamide was extracted from film By distilled water a 40 deg C for 4 hours.

EYE CONTACT: Not probable route of exposure for film.

INGESTION: Not probable route of exposure for film.

Carcinogenicity information

None of the components present in this material at concentrations Equal to or greater than 0.1° are listed by IARC, NTP, OSHAOR ACGIH as a carcinogen.

FIRST AID MEASURES

First Aid

INHALATION

Not probable route of exposure for film.

SKIN CONTACT

Wash with soap and water after handling. If skin irritation develops, consult a physician.

EYE CONTACT

Flush eyes with water. Consult a physician if an irritation persists.

INGESTION

Not probable route of exposure for film.

FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Flammable Properties

Not a fire or explosion hazard.

The flammability characteristic of polyimide film is reported as “self­-extinguishing.”

CIRLEX® chars but does not burn in air. CIRLEX® will burn in an atmosphere of 100% oxygen.  The major off­ gases are carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.

The processing of polyimide films can cause the generation of static charge.  Precautions for static charges should also be taken when removing plastic films used as protective packaging for polyimide films.

Extinguishing Media

Water, Foam, Dry Chemical, CO2.

Fire fighting Instructions

None required.

ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Safeguards (Personnel)

NOTE:  Review FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES and HANDLING (PERSONNEL)

Sections before proceeding with cleanup. Use appropriate PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT during cleanup.

Accidental Release Measures

Pick up to prevent slipping hazard.

HANDLING AND STORAGE

Handling (Personnel)

Wash thoroughly after handling.

Storage

Store away from flammable materials.

EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

Engineering Controls

Safe handling of CIRLEX® thick polyimide at high temperatures (above 200°C) requires adequate ventilation.  If small quantities of CIRLEX® are involved, normal air circulation may be all that is needed in case of overheating.  Whether or not existing ventilation is adequate at higher temperatures will depend on the combined factors of film quantity, temperature and exposure time.

Personal Protective Equipment

Safety glasses are recommended as good industrial practice. Respirators are not needed for normal use.

Special protective clothing is not needed for normal use.  Gloves are recommended as good industrial practice.

Exposure Guidelines Applicable Exposure Limits

DIMETHYL ACETAMIDE (residual in film)

PEL (OSHA):  10 ppm, 35 mg/m3, 8 Hr, TWA, Skin

TLV(ACGIH) :10 ppm, 36 mg/m3, 8 Hr, TWA, Skin, A4

AEL (DuPont) : 10 ppm,  8 & 12 Hr, TWA, Skin

POLYIMIDEPOLYMER (as nuisance dust)

PEL (OSHA) : None Established

TLV (ACGIH) : None Established

AEL* (DuPont):  10 mg/m3, 8 Hr, TWA, total dust

5 mg/m3, 6 Hr.TWA, respirable dust

*AEL is DuPont’s Acceptable Exposure Limit. Where governmentally imposed occupational exposure limits that are lower than the AEL are in effect, such limits shall take precedence.
