2.Hazards Identification

This material is classified as not hazardous under OSHA regulations. Under normal conditions of use, this product is not expected to create any unusual industrial hazards. Irritating gases/fumes may be given off during burning or thermal decomposition. Contact with hot material will cause thermal burns.

3.Composition/Information On Ingredients

Chemical Characterization: 100% Polycarbonate (PC) [Proprietary]

4. First-Aid Measures

Inhalation: Move subject to fresh air.

Skin Contact: If molten material contacts skin, cool rapidly with cold water and obtain medical attention for thermal burn.

Eye Contact: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician.

Ingestion: This material is not expected to be absorbed within the gastrointestinal tract,
so induction of vomiting should not be necessary.


5. Fire-Fighting Measures

Suitable Extinguishing Media: Carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam or water.

Specific Fire Hazards: Toxic and irritating gases/fumes may be given off during burning or thermal decomposition. Avoid generating dust: fine dust dispersed in air in sufficient concentrations and in the presence of an ignition source is a potential dust explosion hazard.

Special Protective Equipment &
Precaution for Fire Fighters: Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective gear.

6. Accidental Release Measures

Personal Precaution: Provide adequate ventilation. Wear personal protection equipment. Do not breathe dust.

Environmental Precaution: Do not allow to enter into soil, waterbodies or drains.

Methods for Cleaning Up: Avoid generation of dust. Remove all sources of ignition. Sweep or scoop up into closed containers for disposal.

7. Handling and Storage

Max. Storage Temperature: 120°F (49°C)

Handling: Ensure appropriate exhaust and ventilation at machinery and at places where dust can be generated. Avoid dust formation, and accumulation of static charges. Prohibit sources of spark and ignition, such as smoking. Processing of this product under high temperatures will cause hazardous emissions of vapors, carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide.

Storage: If this material is stored under ambient temperature conditions, it is not hazardous. However, extensive storing at higher than the maximum temperature will emit vapors, carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide.

8. Exposure Controls / Personal Protection

Exposure Limits : Not applicable

Ventilation Measures: Provide good ventilation and/or an exhaust system in the work area. Respiratory Protection: None required under normal conditions.
Hand Protection: Canvas or cotton gloves.

Eye Protection: Safety glasses with side shields (ANSI Z87.1 equivalent). Skin & Body Protection: Wear suitable protective clothing and boots.
Other Protective Measures: Avoid contact of molten material with skin. Do not inhale dust particles or vapors. Keep away from sources of ignition. Wash hands before breaks and after work.
