Section 2 - Hazardous Ingredients
Note: Products under normal conditions do not represent an inhalation, Ingestion or Contact Health Hazard.
Base Metal, Alloying Elements and Metallic Coatings
% Composition by Weight (1)
.25 - 1.25
Protective coatings are applied to the surface
of the wire and components and are less than 1% of the weight of the product.
Typical coatings are petroleum-based oils, phosphates, soap-based lubricants,
flash or wash metallic coatings of tin (stannous) sulphate, and/or copper
sulphate and indenes.
No component was found to be carcinogenic.

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: Health Effects/Signs And Symptoms: Exposure to the constituents of these products will only occur during activities such as welding or burning. However, because of the low toxcity of the components and/or the low air levels anticipated during such activities, these products are not considered to be hazardous chemicals as defined by the federal OSHA hazard communication standard.
Medical Conditions Possibly Aggravated: Chronic diseases or disorders of the respiratory system.
Carcinogen information: Not considered to be a carcinogen
Emergency and First Aid Procedures:
Eye Contact: Flush well with running water to remove particulate
Skin Contact: Wash area well with soap and water
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air
Ingestion: Not considered an ingestion hazard
Section 7 - Spill or Leak Procedures
Spill or Leak Procedures: N/A
Waste Disposal Methods:
Section 8 - Special Protection
Respiratory: Use properly fitted NIOSH approved dust fume respirator when engineering controls are not sufficient to lower exposure levels below the applicable exposure limit.
Ventilation: Utilize local exhaust to keep dust below T.L.V.
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.
