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
Continuous Filament Fiber Glass (65997-17-3)
Epoxy Resin (26265-08-7)
Trace impurities and additional material names not listed above may
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
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.

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

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
body-covering clothing should be needed. Use gloves and aprons when prolonged or frequently repeated
EYE PROTECTION: Use appropriate eye protection when machining material.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Atmospheric levels of Fibrous glass and Copper
should be maintained below exposure guidelines. When respiratory protection is required for
certain operations, use a NIOSH-approved dust respirator.

XI. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
IMMEDIATE (ACUTE) EFFECTS: Dust may cause moderate eye, skin and respiratory
DELAYED (SUBCHRONIC & CHRONIC) EFFECTS: NTP has determined that
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
OTHER DATA: The toxicity of the combustion products was evaluated in
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.
