Section 3 - Physical Data
Material is (at normal conditions):
Melting Point (Base Metal): Filament will melt at 250 degrees celcius.
Appearance and Odor: Brown, Maroon, Blue- No Odor
Specific Gravity: N/A

Section 4 - Fire and Explosion
Extinguishing Media: Carbon Dioxide, Water, Foam
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: None necessary
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Will not burn under ordinary use. When burning, gives off toxic fumes. Breathing apparatus should be worn to fight serious fires in confined spaces.

Section 5 - Reactivity Data
Stability: Stable
Conditions to Avoid:
Hazardous Decomposition Products: When exposed to excessive heat, nylon can decompose and may release small amounts of caprolactam, volitile oligomers, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, nitriles, ketones, and a wide variety of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen compounds of varying chemicals.
Incompatibility (Materials to Avoid): Acids

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:
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 the skin, when handling filaments, gloves should be worn to minimize cuts and abrasions.
Eyes: Avoid eye contact with the material and its components. Eye protection should be worn in accordance with ANSI Z87.1 (Occupational eye & face protection).
Permissible Concentration Air: Not applicable
Unusual Chronic Toxicity:
None known under normal conditions of use and at ambient temperatures.
Filaments: Will melt at temperatures greater than 250 degrees celcius.

Emergency and First Aid Procedures:
Eye Contact- Flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes to remove particulate.
- Induce vomiting - call physician
Skin - Wash with soap and water

Section 7 - Spill or Leak Procedures
Spill or Leak Procedures: N/A
Waste Disposal Methods: Dispose of by methods which are in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.

Section 8 - Special Protection
Respiratory: High dust concentrations of aluminum oxide may cause irritation and lung damage. Lung damage (Shaver's Disease) has been recorded when silica and iron oxide are inhaled with aluminum oxide.
Ventilation: Use a properly fitted NIOSH approved dust/fume respirator when exposed to levels higher than the applicable exposure limit.
Eye Protection and Protective Clothing: See section 9

Section 9 - Special Precautions
In normal power finishing operations, the material being removed, (such as burrs, scale, dirt, weld slag, or other residue) will fly off the disc with considerable force, along with the disc filaments, which break off due to fatigue. The potential of serious injury exists for both the disc operator and others in the work area. The operator and others in the area are required to wear protective eye and face equipment in accordance with ANSI Z87.1 (occupational eye & face protection), along with protective clothing.
