This warning is part of our effort to comply with the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (known as “Proposition 65”). The warning does not mean that our products will necessarily cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. While we believe our products are not harmful when used as designed, and we rely on our suppliers to help with this effort, we also provide these warnings to comply with Proposition 65.
DSM&T evaluates the updated chemical list periodically. Based on our business operations, product mix and to the best of our knowledge of all raw materials and components used in the manufacturing of our products, we cannot declare that our products are in full compliance with the current list of chemicals identified by the State of California Environmental protection Agency under the statute of Proposition 65. Many of the conductors used in the wire products are copper alloy materials which may contain Beryllium or Nickel, nickel compounds, all of which are present on the current list. In addition, some of our insulation materials may give off trace amounts of formaldehyde gas under extreme fire or burning conditions. These material types are in the design of products to meet or exceed applicable agency and customer specifications.
Chemical Presence or Potentially Present in the Products (Limited List):
- Diisononyl Phthalate (DINP)
- PVC – Polyvinyl Chloride
For these purposes, Proposition 65 compliant means that:
- Our suppliers have provided relevant information of products to us.
- We have implemented processes to collect suppliers’ information of relevance.
- If product(s) contain “CSM” Customer Supplied Materials, DSMT is not responsible for any claims pertaining to the CSM.
- If Customer(s) direct DSM&T to use specific materials, it is the Customer’s responsibility to provide the relevant information
Out of caution and welfare to our customers, DSM&T provides this Alert and with limited information regarding these partial list of Supplier substances manufactured in their products. Our statements in this letter regarding compliance and context do not extend to, or apply to any product subjected to unintended contamination, misuse, neglect, accident, or improper installation.
