COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
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)
All reportable ingredients are listed in the TSCA Chemical Substance Inventory.
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.
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.
Not probable route of exposure for film.
Wash with soap and water after handling. If skin irritation develops, consult a physician.
Flush eyes with water. Consult a physician if an irritation persists.
Not probable route of exposure for film.
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.
Water, Foam, Dry Chemical, CO2.
Fire fighting Instructions
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.
Wash thoroughly after handling.
Store away from flammable materials.
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.
