Appearance and Odor: Gray, Blue-Gray- No Odor
Specific Gravity: N/A

Section 4 - Fire and Explosion
Extinguishing Media: Water, Fog, Coz, Dry Chemical or Foam Extinguishing Systems
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Avoid inhaling fumes, self-contained breathing apparatus approved by NOISH should be used.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:

Section 5 - Reactivity Data
Stability: Stable
Conditions to Avoid: Do Not Inhale Smoke or Fumes
Hazardous Decomposition Products: When exposed to excessive heat, nylon can decompose and may release small amounts of caprolactam, volatile oligomers, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, nitriles, ketones, and a wide variety of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen compounds of various chemicals.
Incompatibility (Materials to Avoid): Normal conditions of use

Section 6 - Health Hazard Data
Note: Steel products in the natural state do not present an inhalation, Ingestion or contact hazard; however, operations such as burning, welding, sawing, brazing and grinding may release fumes and/or dusts which may present health hazards if TLV'S are exceeded.

Major exposure hazard: Inhalation: Skin Contact: Skin Absorption: Eye Contact: Ingestion:

Effects of Overexposure:
Inhalation: Mechanical cutting, grinding or shaping of filaments may release particulate matter into the workplace. Fumes may be generated if filaments are exposed to excessive heat.
Ingestion: Avoid ingestion as with any inert non-edible material.
Skin: Avoid contact with skin. When handling filaments, gloves should be worn to minimize cuts and abrasions.
Eyes: Avoid eye contact with the material and its components. Safety glasses should be worn in all manufacturing areas.
Permissible Concentration Air: Not Applicable for monofilament
Unusual Chronic Toxicity: None known under normal conditions of use and at ambient temperatures.

Emergency and First Aid Procedures: Abrasions - Cleanse the wound being sure to remove any foreign material apply a suitable antiseptic and apply a sterile, dry bandage to the area to prevent contamination of the affected area. See a nurse or physician especially if evidence of infection appears.

Section 7 - Spill or Leak Procedures
Spill or Leak Procedures: N/A
Waste Disposal Methods: In compliance with local, state and federal regulations.

Section 8 - Special Protection
Respiratory: Lung damage (Shaver's Disease) has been recorded when silica and iron oxide are inhaled
Ventilation: Respiratory Protection: Use a properly fitted NIOSH approved dust/fume respirator, when engineering controls are not sufficient to lower exposure levels below the applicable exposure limit.
Eye Protection and Protective Clothing: See section 9

Section 9 - Special Precautions
Protective Clothing and Equipment: In normal power brushing operations, the material being removed, (such as burrs, scale, dirt, weld slag, or other residue) will fly off the brush with considerable force, along with the brush filaments, which break off due to fatigue. The potential of serious injury exists for both the brush operator and others in the work area (possibly 50 or more feet from the brush). Before rotating the brush, the operator and others in the area are required to wear protective eye equipment and face equipment, such as safety goggles or full face shields worn over safety glasses with side shields, along with protective clothing in accordance with ANSI Z87.1 (Occupational Eye & Face Protection).
