Does Belden have MSDS information for their products?

Belden does not have MSDS information for our products because cable/wire is considered an "article" based on the OSHA definition of "article." MSDS information is not required for "articles." If an MSDS is needed for an element(s) that is part of the cable composition, we can provide MSDS information for the element(s).
