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 of dust during machining and inhalation of vapors during hot wire cutting. Irritation may lead to coughing. These fumes could contain traces of isocyanates (MDI or TDI) depending upon which isocyante is used in the elastomer formulation.
Chronic: Animal studies indicate that chronic inhalation or overexposure of dusts may cause inflamation of the lungs, fibrosis and airway obstruction.
Cured polyurethane is not listed as a carcinogenic
Emergency and First Aid Procedures: Flush eyes with water if dust from grinding causes irritation
Section 7 - Spill or Leak Procedures
Spill or Leak Procedures: Pick up and handle as any other inert material
Waste Disposal Methods: Not considered a hazardous material. Dispose of material according to any local, state and federal regulations.
Section 8 - Special Protection
Respiratory: Wear dust mask while grinding.
Ventilation: Only required when generating dust
Eye Protection and Protective Clothing: Use OSHA approved safety goggles while grinding
