Please Help! IMDS Warning Polymer Material Two Substances

Kinda new to IMDS. Getting the error/warning "A polymer material (classification 5.1.b) should have at least two substances attached".

Does anyone know why this error occurs or how to get rid of it?

Apparently most people just ignore it but my boss claims it's an error and must be rectified.

If, in real life, the material is only made up of one basic substance, let's say for example, PTFE, then why can't we make a material with 100% PTFE in IMDS? This doesn't happen for other classifications like metal, only polymers.

Re: IMDS Warning Polymer Material Two Substances

I would have the wire supplier correct their MDS and re-propose it to you.

They will have to correct it anyways.

Re: IMDS Warning Polymer Material Two Substances

I did that. Vendor has no idea how to fix it either. That's why I'm asking here.

Re: IMDS Warning Polymer Material Two Substances

Try checking an MDS from another magnet wire supplier to see how they did it.

It does need to be corrected because the OEMs normally do not accept any warnings or errors.

Sorry I don't have anymore help.

Re: IMDS Warning Polymer Material Two Substances

I did that too. Some other vendors will put in 99% of the actual basic substance, and then put in 1% of "Misc - Not to declare". This removes the warning, but my boss tells me this is 'cheating' and I can't do it.

Still other vendors will just ignore the warning, because it's a 'warning', not an 'error', but again my boss says we have to fix warnings too.

I have also thought of switching basic substance from something like PTFE (teflon) to its actual elements like 40% Carbon, 10% Hydrogen, etc... I haven't seen a case where any other vendor did it that way, so I suspect that's not a typical solution.

Anyway I do thank you very much for your help.
