III. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
 
 

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW: A nonflammable, sheet material. Dust, when machined or
punched may cause skin or eye irritation. Fumes, if decomposed may irritate
eyes, nose, and throat.
 
 

POTENTIAL HEALTH HAZARDS
 
 

SKIN: Dust may cause moderate skin irritation.
 
 

EYES: Dust may cause moderate eye irritation. Fumes may irritate eyes.
 
 

INHALATION: Fibrous glass dust may be released from the fiberglass cloth
substrate when machined. ACGIH

TLV is 10 mg/m3 TWA for particles <5 microns in diameter.
 
 

INGESTION: Not determined.
 
 

DELAYED EFFECTS: Our product is reinforced with continuous filament
fiberglass. Dust generated from the

cutting, grinding, machining, etc., would not be expected to produce
respirable particles. IARC considers

continuous glass filaments as unclassifiable or probably non-carcinogenic.
 
 

Ingredients found on one of the OSHA designated carcinogen lists are listed
below.

Ingredient Name NTP Status IARC Status OSHA List
None None None
None

IV. FIRST AID MEASURES
 
 

SKIN: Wash in flowing water or shower. Remove contaminated clothing.
 
 

EYE: Irrigate with flowing water for 15 minutes. If irritation persists,
consult a physician.
 
 

INHALATION: If overcome by dust or smoke, move to fresh air. If not
breathing, give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Call physician.
 
 

INGESTION: If large amounts are ingested, consult physician.
 
 

ADVICE TO PHYSICIAN: Treat symptomatically

thermally decomposed.
 
 

SPECIAL FIREFIGHTING PRECAUTIONS/INSTRUCTIONS: Firemen should wear proper
protective equipment and positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus.
 
 
 
 

VI. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
 
 

IN CASE OF SPILL OR OTHER RELEASE: Always wear recommended personal
protection equipment.
 
 

Spills and releases may have to be reported to Federal and/or local
authorities. See the Regulatory Information section (#15) regarding
reporting requirements.
 
 

VII. HANDLING AND STORAGE
 
 

NORMAL HANDLING: Always wear recommended personal protective equipment. The
primary exposure route is inhalation of dust when machine/punched or from fumes or vapors when
heated.
 
 

STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS: N/A
 
 

VIII. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
 
 

ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Use local exhaust ventilation to control dust.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
 
 

SKIN PROTECTION: For brief contact to dust, no precautions other than clean
body-covering clothing should be needed. Use gloves and aprons when prolonged or frequently repeated
contact occurs.
 
 

EYE PROTECTION: Use appropriate eye protection when machining material.
 
 

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Atmospheric levels of Fibrous glass and Copper Dust
should be maintained below exposure guidelines. When respiratory protection is required for
certain operations, use a NIOSH-approved dust respirator.
 
 

ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS: N/A

XI. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
 
 

IMMEDIATE (ACUTE) EFFECTS: Dust may cause moderate eye, skin and respiratory
irritation.
 
 

DELAYED (SUBCHRONIC & CHRONIC) EFFECTS: NTP has determined that respirable
size glasswool may be reasonably anticipated to be a carcinogen. IARC has
also classified glasswool as a possible carcinogen. Our product is
reinforced with continuous filament fiberglass. Dust generated from the
cutting, grinding, machining, etc. would not be expected to produce
respirable particles. IARC considers glass filaments as unclassifiable or
probably non-carcinogenic.
 
 

OTHER DATA: The toxicity of the combustion products was evaluated in a
similar product with 95% confidence limits; the LC5O was calculated (Probit
Analysis) to be 40.4 (32.3-69.9) mgIL. The LC5O of the standard reference
material, Douglas fir, is 27.1 mg/L.
