SECTION III - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW: There are no significant health hazards associated with exposure to this product. All ingredients are physically bound in the matrix during the manufacturing process and are not expected to create an exposure to individual components when the product is handled, processed, and used in its normal applications.
Fabrication: Cutting and fabricating activities utilizing impact or power equipment may release small chips or shards, which are a hazard to the eyes. Grinding and sanding operations may release small quantities of dust with particles generally larger than respirable size.
Burning: Toxic gases and fumes are given off during burning or thermal decomposition. Burning produces intense heat and dense smoke.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE: Overexposure to this product is not likely to cause any significant acute effect.

HMIS RATING: Health: 0 Fire: 1 Physical Hazard: 0 Personal Protection: B

POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS:
  • ROUTES OF ENTRY: Eyes, Inhalation

  • ACUTE EFFECTS: Coarse dust and particulate generated during fabrication can irritate eyes, nasal passages, and the upper respiratory system.

  • CHRONIC EFFECTS: Chronic effects are unlikely.

  • MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Chronic respiratory disease.

  • CARCINOGENICITY: This product is not classified or regulated by NTP, IARC, or OSHA.

SECTION IV - FIRST AID MEASURES

EYE CONTACT: To remove particulate matter, flush with large amounts of water until irritation subsides. See a physician if irritation persists.

INHALATION: Blow nose and rinse mouth with water to clear dust and particulate.

SECTION V - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

NFPA RATING: Health: 2 Fire: 1 Reactivity: 0 Other: --

FLASH POINT AND METHOD: 900° F (482° C)

EXTINGUISHING METHOD: Water spray, dry chemical, foam.

NFPA FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Use water spray, dry chemical, or foam. Carbon dioxide may permit re-ignition due to a lack of cooling capacity.

FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARDS: The product itself does not burn without an outside source of ignition. In the event that the product does become ignited there is the potential for dense smoke containing toxic gases. Consequently, fire fighters should wear approved self-contained breathing apparatus. Personnel not having suitable respiratory protection must leave the area to avoid exposure to the toxic gases.

HARMFUL COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Irritating or toxic substances, including hydrogen chloride gas, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, organotins, and hydrocarbons, can be liberated when the product undergoes combustion.

SECTION VI - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES: Sweep or pick-up fabrication debris. Debris may usually be disposed of in a non-regulated landfill. However, prior to disposal, it is recommended that the regulations in effect for the particular area where disposal is to take place be checked to prevent improper disposal.

SECTION VII - HANDLING AND STORAGE

STORAGE TEMPERATURE: Store in well ventilated areas at temperatures below 120° F (49° C).

SPECIAL SENSITIVITY: None

HANDLING PRECAUTIONS: Use good housekeeping procedures to minimize the accumulation of dust during fabrication procedures.

SECTION VIII - EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

EYE PROTECTION: Wear safety glasses when cutting or machining.

SKIN PROTECTION: Gloves are recommended when fabricating due to possible sharp edges.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: For nuisance dust not otherwise regulated, observe the OSHA PEL of 15 mg/m3. When exposures over the PEL are encountered and engineering or other controls are not adequate to reduce airborne concentrations to below the PEL, use a dust mask such as 3M-8710 or equivalent..

SECTION IX - PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES

PRODUCT USES: Fabricated sheet items including glazing, machine covers, and safety shields.

PHYSICAL FORM: Clear or tinted plastic sheet.

MELTING POINT: 390° F (° C)

Specific Gravity: 1.50

SECTION X - REACTIVITY

STABILITY: Product is stable under normal conditions.

HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION: Will not occur.

INCOMPATIBILITIES: None in designed use.

DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: Hydrogen chloride gas, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, organotins, and hydrocarbons. The product will liberate hydrogen chloride fumes when heated to decomposition.

CONDITIONS TO AVOID: Exposure to heat and direct flame.
