Standard series 105 °C
Cautions and warnings
The electrolytes used by EPCOS have been optimized both with a view to the intended
application and with regard to health and environmental compatibility. They do not contain any
solvents that are detrimental to health, e.g. dimethyl formamide (DMF) or dimethyl acetamide
Furthermore, some of the high-voltage electrolytes used by EPCOS are self-extinguishing.
As far as possible, EPCOS does not use any dangerous chemicals or compounds to produce
operating electrolytes. However, in exceptional cases, such materials must be used in order to
achieve specific physical and electrical properties because no alternative materials are currently
known. However, the amount of dangerous materials used in our products is limited to an
Materials and chemicals used in EPCOS aluminum electrolytic capacitors are continuously
adapted in compliance with the EPCOS Corporate Environmental Policy and the latest EU
regulations and guidelines such as RoHS, REACH/SVHC, GADSL, and ELV.
MDS (Material Data Sheets) are available on the EPCOS website for all types listed in the data
book. MDS for customer specific capacitors are available upon request.
MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) are available for all of our electrolytes upon request.
Nevertheless, the following rules should be observed when handling aluminum electrolytic
capacitors: No electrolyte should come into contact with eyes or skin. If electrolyte does come
into contact with the skin, wash the affected areas immediately with running water. If the eyes are
affected, rinse them for 10 minutes with plenty of water. If symptoms persist, seek medical
treatment. Avoid inhaling electrolyte vapor or mists. Workplaces and other affected areas should
be well ventilated. Clothing that has been contaminated by electrolyte must be changed and
rinsed in water.
