Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX the study does not need to be conducted if direct and indirect exposure of the soil in unlikely.1,1 DPE is a 60-80% w/w component of a capacitor fluid contained in “ready-to-use” industrial products like Faradol 810 and SAS 60. These capacitor fluids will be used in high voltage power capacitors.The capacitors are hermetically sealed within a tank constructed of stainless steel and are fully welded. Connections pass through porcelain insulators. Normal operating temperatures do not exceed 30°C above ambient temperatures. High voltage capacitors will be protected with fuses or other methods to avoid the possibility of case rupture due to a fault occurring. Overall, leakage from capacitors will be extremely rare and stringent quality control standards will be maintained during manufacture.
