3.1 EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Specific Physical Form: Granules
3.2 POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
Vapors from heated material may cause eye irritation. Signs/symptoms may include redness, swelling, pain, tearing, and blurred or hazy vision.
Thermal Burns: Signs/symptoms may include intense pain, redness and swelling, and tissue destruction.
Polymer Fume Fever: Sign/symptoms may include chest pain or tightness, shortness of breath, cough, malaise, muscle aches, increased heart rate, fever, chills, sweats, nausea and headache.
If thermal decomposition occurs:,br>
May be absorbed following inhalation and cause target organ effects.
No health effects are expected.
4.1 FIRST AID PROCEDURES
The following first aid recommendations are based on an assumption that appropriate personal and industrial hygiene practices are followed.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. If signs/symptoms persist, get medical attention. If eye contact with hot material occurs: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE MOLTEN MATERIAL. Immediately flush affected area with plenty of cold water and cover with a clean dressing. Have burn treated by a physician.
Skin Contact: Wash affected area with soap and water. If signs/symptoms develop, get medical attention. If skin contact withhot material occurs: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE MOLTEN MATERIAL. Immediately flush affected area with plenty of cold water and cover with a clean dressing. Have burn treated by a physician.
Inhalation: Remove person to fresh air. If signs/symptoms develop, get medical attention.
If Swallowed: No need for first aid is anticipated.
5.1 FLAMMABLE PROPERTIES
5.2 EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Non-combustible. Choose material suitable for surrounding fire.
5.3 PROTECTION OF FIRE FIGHTERS
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Exposure to extreme heat can give rise to thermal decomposition. Wear full protective equipment (Bunker Gear) and a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Not applicable.
Accidental Release Measures: Observe precautions from other sections. Call 3M- HELPS line (1-800-364-3577) for more information on handling and managing the spill. Evacuate unprotected and untrained personnel from hazard area. The spill should be cleaned up by qualified personnel. Ventilate the area with fresh air. Collect as much of the spilled material as possible. Use wet sweeping compound or water to avoid dusting. Sweep up. Clean up residue. Place in a closed container approved for transportation by appropriate authorities. Dispose of collected material as soon as possible.

NFPA Hazard Classification
Health: 1 Flammability: 0 Reactivity: 0 Special Hazards: None
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) hazard ratings are designed for use by emergency response personnel to address the hazards that are presented by short-term, acute exposure to a material under conditions of fire, spill, or similar emergencies. Hazard ratings are primarily based on the inherent physical and toxic properties of the material but also include the toxic properties of combustion or decomposition products that are known to be generated in significant quantities.
HMIS Hazard Classification
Health: 1 Flammability: 0 Reactivity: 0 Protection: X - See PPE section.
Hazardous Material Identification System (HMIS(r)) hazard ratings are designed to inform employees of chemical hazards in the workplace. These ratings are based on the inherent properties of the material under expected conditions of normal use and are not intended for use in emergency situations. HMIS(r) ratings are to be used with a fully implemented HMIS(r) program. HMIS(r) is a registered mark of the National Paint and Coatings Association (NPCA).
