3. HAZARDS INFORMATION

<Potential Health Hazards>

SKIN :

May cause mechanical irritation if product come into contact with the skin. Contact with molten

 

material may cause thermal burns.

EYES : May cause mechanical irritation if product comes into contact with the eye.

INHALATION :

Not a probable route of exposure under normal conditions of use.

 

Elevated processing temperatures may generate fumes and vapors which may cause

 

irritation to the nose and throat.

INGESTION : Not a probable route of exposure. Not considered hazardous.

DELAYED EFFECTS: None known.

4. FIRST AID MEASURES

SKIN :

If in contact with solid material, wash with soap and water. If in contact with molten material,

 

submerge injured area in cold water. Do not attempt to remove material adhering to the skin.

 

Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.

EYES : Flush eyes with plenty of water. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.

INHALATION :

If exposed to vapors at elevated processing conditions, remove to fresh air. Get medical

 

attention if irritation develops or persists.

INGESTION :

Not a probable route of exposure. If person is conscious, rinse mouth with water.

 

Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by a physician.

ADVICE TO PHYSICIAN: No specific advice, treat symptomatically.
