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 TLVS 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.
Eyes: Avoid eye contact with the material and its components. Safety glasses should be worn in all manufacturing areas.
Unusual Chronic Toxicity: None known under normal conditions of use and at ambient temperatures.
Ingestion: Avoid ingestion as with any inert non-edible material.
Skin: Avoid contact with the skin, when handling filaments, gloves should be worn.

Emergency and First Aid Procedures: Eye Contact - Flush with water.

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

Section 8 - Special Protection
Respiratory: Use only NIOSH approved respirators
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.
