FM 4910 Fire-Safe Plastics - Overview

OVERVIEW of FM 4910 Fire-Safe Plastics - Overview

Cleanroom Materials Flammability Test Protocol (Class 4910) As computer chips get smaller and faster, the manufacturing process required to create them gets more and more complex—even the slightest delay in production can mean millions of dollars in lost revenue. One of the major causes of delay in the chip manufacturing process is contamination. Contamination from a fire, no matter how small, could potentially put a chip maker out of business for weeks, if not permanently.
In the past, cleanrooms and wet benches needed to be protected by sprinklers or more expensive special fire-protection systems. But, by the time a cleanroom fire propagated and triggered a sprinkler or special fire protection system, damage could already have occurred in the rest of the cleanroom.
Driven by rising insurance costs and potential lost earnings, chip makers are requiring suppliers to use materials in wet-bench fabrication that are less flammable and therefore don't need additional—and costly—fire protection systems installed, so they will be inherently safe when they arrive in the cleanroom.
The Cleanroom Materials Flammability Test Protocol (Class 4910) contains the method for conducting tests. Now, wet-bench manufacturers and users can apply the cleanroom protocol to develop plastic materials and equipment capable of resisting fire, emitting little, if any smoke, and producing little, if any, corrosive by-products.
Materials passing the cleanroom protocol, subsequently, can be listed in the Approval Guide, a publication of FM Approvals.
