3. FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD DATA:
FLASHPOINT: 245 F
METHOD USED: PMCC FLAMMABLE LIMITS:
LFL: not applicable
UFL: not applicable EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: foam, C02, dry chemical FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: none
FIRE FIGHTING EQUIPMENT: Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus.
4. REACTIVITY DATA:
STABILITY: (CONDITIONS TO AVOID) Excess heating over long periods of time degrades the resin. INCOMP AT ABILITY: (SPECIFIC MATERIALS TO AVOID) Base.
HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: The by-products expected in incomplete prolysis or combustion of epoxy resins Are mainly phenolics, carbon monoxide, and water. The thermal decompression products of epoxy resins therefore should be treated as potentially hazardous substance. Appropriate precautions should be taken.
5. ENVIROMENTAL AND DISPOSAL INFORMATION:
ACTION TO TAKE FOR SPILLS / LEAKS: Soak up in absorbent material and collect in suitable containers. Residual may be removed using steam or hot soapy water.
DISPOSAL METHOD: Burn in adequate incinerator or bury in an approved landfill; in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.
6. HEALTH HAZARD DATA:
EYE: Minor transient irritation, No corneal injury is likely.
SKIN CONTACT: May cause allergic skin reaction in susceptible individuals. Prolonged exposure not likely to cause significant skin irritation. Repeated exposure may cause skin irritation.
SKIN ABSORPTION: A single prolonged exposure is not likely to result in the material being absorbed through skin in harmful amounts. The LD50 for skin absorption in rabbits is 20,000 mg/kg.
INGESTION: Low acute oral toxicity; LD50 (rat) greater than 400 mg/kg. No hazards anticipated from ingestion incidental to industrial exposure.
INHALATION: Vapors are unlikely due to physical properties. Not a problem unless healed to high temperature.
SYSTEMIC AND OTHER EFFECTS: Except for skin sensitization, repeated exposure to low molecular weight epoxy resins of this type are not anticipated to cause any significant adverse effects. A poorly characterized sample of molecular weight epoxy resin of this type has Been reported to produce skin cancer in a highly sensitive strain of mice. However, high levels of impurity compromise the validity of manufacturing processes is not believed to be a cancer hazard to humans. Results of mutagen city tests in animals have been negative. It has been shown to be negative in some in vitro mutagen city tests and positive in others.
7. FIRST AID:
EYES: Irrigation of the eye immediately with water for five minutes is good safety practice.
SKIN: Contact will probably cause no more than irritation. Wash off in flowing water or shower. Wash clothing before reuse. INGESTION: Remove to fresh air if effects occur. Consult medical personnel.
NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: No specific antidote. Supportive care. Treatment based on judgment of the physician in response to reactions of the patient.
8. HANDLING PRECAUTIONS:
VENTILATION: Good room ventilation usually adequate for most operations. RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: None needed.
SKIN PROTECTION: For brief contact, no precautions other than clean body-covering clothing should be needed. Use impervious gloves when prolonged or frequently repeated contact could occur. EYE PROTECTION: Use chemical goggles.
9. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORAGE:
Practice good caution and personnel cleanliness to avoid skin and eye contact. Avoid breathing vapors of heated material.
