Section 4 – FIRST AID MEASURES


Eye Contact: Dust or particles may cause mechanical eye irritation and/or injury. Flush eyes
thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes. If effects occur, consult a physician, preferably an
ophthalmologist.
Inhalation: Dust from mechanical fabrication may cause upper respiratory irritation. Fumes from hot
wire cutting can also cause upper respiratory irritation. Move person to fresh air and keep comfortable
for breathing. Loosen tight clothing such as collar, tie, belt or waistband to facilitate breathing. Obtain
medical attention if symptoms persist.
Skin Contact: No significant signs or symptoms indicative of any adverse health hazard are expected
to occur as a result of absorption. May cause slight skin irritation from abrasion in a few individuals.
Wash with mild soap and running water. Remove and launder contaminated clothing before reuse. If
irritation develops, seek medical attention.
Ingestion: Ingestion of this material is unlikely. It is biologically inert and ingestion of small quantities
of this material under normal circumstances would not cause harmful effects. If it does occur, do not
induce vomiting; seek medical attention.

Section 5 – FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES


Flash Point: 698°F (370°C)
Auto Ignition: 850°F (454°C)
Extinguishing Media: Water fog, foam, carbon dioxide, dry chemical.
Special Firefighting Protective Equipment: Use approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full
face mask and personal protective clothing (turnout gear).
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Burning product may produce dense black smoke consisting of
carbon (soot), carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and water. Dust generated by fabrication, i.e., sanding,
sawing, etc. will increase fire hazard and should be handled accordingly.
