Section 3 - Hazards Identification:

Emergency Overview: No adverse effects are expected from human exposure to polyhexamethylene adipamide, except for mechanical irritation of skin and eyes caused by particles. Significant skin permeation and systemic toxicity after contact appears unlikely.

Potential Health Effects from Inhalation, Skin, Eyes or Ingestion: *N/A

Carcinogenicity: NTP? No IARC Monographs? No OSHA Regulated? No

Section 4 - First Aid Measures:

No specific intervention is indicated as the compound is not likely to be hazardous by inhalation. If exposed to fumes from overheating or combustion, move to fresh air. Consult a physician if symptoms persist.
The compound is not likely to be hazardous by skin contact, but cleansing the skin after use is advisable. If molten polymer gets onto skin, cool rapidly with cold water. Do not attempt to peel polymer from skin. Obtain medical treatment for thermal burn.
In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician.
No specific intervention is indicated as compound is not likely to be hazardous by ingestion. Consult a physician if necessary.

Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures:
Flash Point (Method Used):
400° C (752° F) D1929
Flammable Limits:
Auto Ignition Temp:
752° F
NFPA Class: *N/A
General Hazards: Large molten masses may ignite spontaneously in air. Water quenching of such masses is good practice.
Extinguishing Media:
Water, foam, dry chemical, CO2
Fire Fighting Procedures:
Keep personnel removed and upwind of fire. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:
Large molten masses may ignite spontaneously in air. Water quenching of such masses is good practice.
Hazardous Combustion Products: Ammonia, carbon monoxide, small amounts of hydrogen cyanide and aldehydes.

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures:
Steps To Be Taken In Case Material Is Released Or Spilled:
Sweep up to prevent a slipping hazard.

Section 7 - Handling And Storage:
Precautions To Be Taken In Handling And Storage:
See first aid and protection information sections. Store in a cool, dry place. Keep containers tightly closed to prevent moisture absorption and contamination.

Section 8 - Exposure Controls/Personal Protection:
Engineering Controls: Use local ventilation to control fumes from hot processing.
Personal Protection:

Respiratory Protection (specify type)
NIOSH/MSHA approved air purifying respirator with an organic vapor cartridge and a dust/mist filter may be premissible under certain circumstances where airborne concentrations are expected to exceed exposure limits. Protection provided by air purifying respirators is limited. Use a positive pressure air supplied respirator if there is any potential for an uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not known, or any other circumstance where air purifying respirators may not provide adequate protection.
Protective Gloves
Wear safety glasses. Wear coverall chemical splash goggles and face shield when possibility exists for eye and face contact due to splashing or spraying of molten material. A full face mask respirator provides protection from eye irritation.
Other Protective Clothing or Equipment
If there is a potential contact with hot/molten material, wear heat resistant clothing and footwear.
Work/Hygenic Practices
Avoid exposure to high concentrations of dust.

Section 9 - Physical And Chemical Properties:

Hazardous Polymerization: Will not occur
Conditions to Avoid: *N/A

Section 11 - Toxicological Information:
No specific information available.

Section 12 - Ecological Information:
Toxicity is not known. Insoluble. Do not release to streams, ponds or lakes.

Section 13 - Disposal Considerations:
Waste Disposal Method: Preferred options for disposal are (1) recycling, (2) incineration with energy recovery, and (3) landfill. The high fuel value of this product makes option (2) very desirable for material that cannot be recycled. Treatment, storage, transportation and disposal must be in accordance with applicable federal, state/provincial and local regulations.
