NFPA Hazard ID: Health - 1    Flammability - 1    Reactivity - 0
HMIS Hazard ID: Health - 1    Flammability - 1    Reactivity - 0

Section IV: First Aid Measures

Inhalation: No specific treatment is necessary because this material is not likely to be hazardous by inhilation. If exposed to excessive levels of dust or fumes, move to fresh air. If coughing and irritation develop, call a physician.

Skin Contact: For hot product, immediately immerse in or flush the affected area with large amounts of cold water. Cover with clean cotton sheeting gauze and get prompt medical attention.

Ingestion: Not likely to be ingested in present form.

Eye Contact: Not likely to be an eye hazard in present form.

Section V: Firefighting Measures

Extinguishing Media: Water, foam and dry chemicals.

Special Firefighting Procedures: Use water spray to cool fire-exposed surfaces. Self-contained breathing apparatus when fighting fire in areas with restricted ventillation.

Fire or Explosion Hazards: Smoke and noxious gases (carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide) evolved upon burning. Dust explosion hazard.

Section VI: Accidental Release Measures

Clean-up Procedures: Stop source of spill. Sweep up for immediate collection and disposal. IF material enters a sewer or waterway, notify responsible authorities of presence of non-toxic plastic filaments. Avoid breathing dust.

Section VII: Handling and Storage
