Section IV. First Aid Measures

Primary Route(s) of Entry: Inhalation (breathing dust and fibers), skin, and eye contact.

Inhalation: Inhalation of excessive amounts of dust created when fabricating, cutting, or other mechanical alterations of the product may cause temporary upper respiratory irritation and/or congestion. Breathing large amounts of dust or fibers from this product may lead to chronic health effects as discussed in Section 11 of this safety data sheet.

Skin: Temporary irritation (itching) or redness may occur.

Ingestion: Ingestion of this material is unlikely. If ingested, it may cause temporary irritation to the gastrointestinal (digestive) tract.

Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.

Eye Contact: Do not rub or scratch eyes. Dust particles may cause the eye to be scratched. Wash eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.

Skin Contact: Wash with mild soap and running water. Use a washcloth to help remove fibers. To avoid further irritation, do not rub or scratch irritated areas. Rubbing or scratching may force fiber into skin. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.

Ingestion: Ingestion of this material is unlikely. If this does occur, rinse mouth with water to remove dust and fibers and drink plenty of water to help reduce irritation. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.

Section V. Fire Fighting Measures

Flash Point, °C, Test Method: None
Auto-Ignition Temperature: NA
Upper Flammable Limit (UFL): Not applicable
Lower Flammable Limit (LFL): Not applicable

General Fire Hazards: There is no potential for spontaneous fire or explosion. Inorganic mineral wool fibers are naturally non-combustible and nonflammable. Organic binder can thermally decompose with elevated temperatures.

Extinguishing Media: Carbon dioxide (CO2), water, water fog, dry chemical.

Fire Fighting Instructions: No special procedures are expected to be necessary for this product. Normal fire fighting procedures should be followed to avoid inhalation of smoke and gases. Use self contained breathing apparatus in a sustained fire.

Section VI. Accidental Release Measures

Clean-Up Procedures: Pick up large pieces. Vacuum dusts. Place in closable container for disposal.

Section VII. Handling and Storage

No special storage or handling procedures is required for this material.

Work/Hygienic Practices: Wash work clothing separately. Wash exposed skin area immediately with warm, soapy water.

Section VIII. Exposure Controls / Personal Protection

Fibrous Glass 15 mg/m3 TWA (total particulate)
5 mg/m3 TWA (respirable particulate)
10 mg/m3 TWA (inhalable particulate)
3 mg/m3 TWA (respirable particulate)
Cured Binder None None

Respiratory protection: Use 3M Model 8210, 8710, 9900(in high humidity or high heat environment) or equivalent, NIOSH-certified dust respirator with efficiency rating of N95 or higher (under 42 CFR 84) when working with this product.

Skin Protection: Long-sleeved, loose fitting clothing and gloves.

Eye Protection: Goggles or face shield.

Engineering Control: General dilution ventilation and/or local exhaust ventilation should be provided as necessary to maintain exposures below regulatory limits. Dust collection systems should be used in operations involving cutting or machining and may be required in operations using power tools.
