EMERGENCY OVERVIEW :
No unusual spill hazard, moderate fire hazard; moderate health risk by ingestion/inhalation. Granular, nodular, pellet or briquette form with a slight phenol odor. Phenolic molding compound with two stage resin.

HEALTH HAZARD DATA :
Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the following information applies to the compound in the form
sold, not to articles, parts, etc. molded of the compound. In normal molding, the material substantially
completes its progression to a cross-linked insoluble, infusible solid.

AS SOLD :
The product is a plastic molding compound: A plastic resin (Phenol-formaldehyde polymer)
intimately mixed and reacted with one or more of a variety of organic and /inorganic filling materials.
The plastic resin is not believed or known to be hazardous. When fully “cured” or reacted, the plastic
resin is insoluble, infusible and binds the well-dispersed, embedded filling materials. However, “as sold”
the plastic resin is not completely “cured” or reacted and contains some unreacted ingredients
dissolved with in it. So dissolved, these chemicals are extremely unlikely to pose a hazard; but because
they are hazardous in their pure forms, OSHA requires that they be reported and describe as hazardous
ingredients. Under normal conditions of storage and handling, no significant amount of hazardous vapors
should evolve from the “as sold” product. Because phenol is more soluble in the resin than in water,
there is no likely significant health hazard through skin absorption. The great majority of filling materials
are embedded within compound granules that are large enough not to constitute an inhalation
hazard. Nevertheless, some particles of plastic resin and/or filling materials may be present in a size that
constitutes a respirable dust (including in some products up to 1% inorganic filling material mixed in after
compounding). This respirable dust may contain one or more of the following materials: carbon black,
coal dust, fibrous glass, mineral wool fiber, and/or wood flour (soft). Chronic inhalation of each of the above has been associated with fibrotic lung disease. For most or all, it has been associated with increased risk of lung cancer, especially among smokers. Inhalation of dust should be avoidable with proper material handling procedures and good ventilation, but if not , respirators should be worn. The primary acute health risk from exposure to the product “as sold” is irritation, especially from the dust. Ingestion, inhalation of dust, and contact with skin and eyes should be avoided.

AS USED :
During polymerization (e.g., curing of the product during normal processing) or decomposition
(e.g., overheating or burning of the product) small amounts of gaseous ammonia, phenol and
formaldehyde (as well as water vapor, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide are evolved. Breathing of
fumes can be harmful. If the odor of ammonia or formaldehyde is noticeable, then the airborne
concentration of those chemicals should be carefully monitored and ventilation improvements considered.
Those chemicals begin to be detectable by odor at concentrations, approaching or exceeding the PELs.
The odor of phenol begins to be noticeable at a concentration about one-fifth the PEL. In any case,
adequacy of ventilation can best be determined by use of instruments to monitor airborne concentrations
of ammonia, phenol, and formaldehyde. Grinding or machining of cured molded material may create a
dust that poses a respiratory hazard if inhaled and may release small amounts of gaseous ammonia.
Acute or Chronic Health Hazard Information Ordinary use of this product is unlikely to produce
significant exposure to hazardous chemicals. PELs for these chemicals are set at levels designed to avoid
any significant health risk and are achievable with proper material handling procedures, ventilation and
housekeeping. Nevertheless, per OSHA requirements, the following is a list of possible health hazard if
one were exposed to the following chemicals at levels much higher, or in a different form, than expected
from ordinary use of this product:

* PHENOLIC FORMALDEHYDE RESIN :
Inhalation : move to where is with fresh air,induce vomiting and see doctor.
Ingestion : move to where is with fresh air,induce vomiting and see doctor.
Skin Contact : wash with shower water.Not expected to be a health hazard from skin exposure.
Eye Contact : wash with clear water to take it off and see doctor.

* CALCIUM CARBONATE :
Inhalation : wash with clear water
Ingestion : move to where is with fresh air,induce vomiting and see doctor.
Skin Contact : wash with shower water.Not expected to be a health hazard from skin exposure.
Eye Contact : wash with clear water to take it off and see doctor.

* HEXAMETHYLENE TETRAAMINE :
Inhalation : Dust may be formed under certain conditions of use.
Harmful by ingestion. Irritating to eyes and respiratory system.
May Irritate skin. Used medicinally as an antiseptic.
If ingested in large quantities can cause gastro-intestinal upsets. crystites, haematuria and renal lesions
due to evolution of formaldehyde.

* PHENOL :
Highly toxic. Poisoning may occur via skin absorption, vapor inhalation, or ingestion. Inhalation of the
vapors may cause severe irritation to the nose, throat, and respiratory tract. May cause liver, kidney,
and heart damage.
Airborne Exposure Limits:
-OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL): 5 ppm (TWA) (skin)
-ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): 5 ppm (TWA) (skin)

* FORMALDEHYDE :
Irritant to eyes, lungs, and skin. Has been shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals. Listed as an
IARC carcinogen. California law requires the following statement be included: contains a chemical
(formaldehyde) known to the State of California to cause cancer. National cancer institute study finds
little evidence to connect formaldehyde exposure to cancer in humans.
Airborne Exposure Limits:
-OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL): 0.75 ppm (TWA), 2 ppm (STEL), 0.5 ppm (TWA) action
level for formaldehyde
-ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): 0.3 ppm Ceiling formaldehyde, Sensitizer, A2 Suspected
Human Carcinogen

* AMMONIA :
Irritant to eyes, mucous membranes and respiratory tract.
Airborne Exposure Limits:
-OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL): 50 ppm (NH3)
-ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): 25 ppm (NH3) (TWA) 35 ppm (STEL)

* BLACK PIGMENT:
Inhalation : Temporary discomfort to upper respiratory tract may occur due to mechanical irritation
when expoures are well above the occupational exposure limit
Ingestion : No evidence of adverse effects from available data
Eye : High dust concentrations may cause mechanical irritation to eye
Skin : May cause mechanical irritation , soiling and drying of skin

* DUST :
Irritant to eyes, nose, and throat. Can cause respiratory effects such as pneumoconiosis, bronchitis,
emphysema, and progressive massive fibrosis, with long exposure.
