POLYPROPYLENE BLOCK COPOLYMER
In general, skin irritation has not been produced in human patch tests with PP Resin. However, a small percentage of subjects may respond to prolonged contact with redness of skin. Significant skin permeation, and systemic toxicity, after contact appears unlikely. There are no reports of human sensitization.
If particles of PP Extrusions contact the eye, mechanical irritation with tearing, pain or blurred vision may result.
None of the components present in this material are carcinogenous.
Emergency Overview :
Various colors. Solid. No serious effects anticipated under normal conditions of use. No known applicable information.
Acute Potential Health Effects/ Routes of Entry
Inhalation : No specific intervention is indicated as the molding is not likely to be hazardous by inhalation. Consult a physician if necessary. If exposed to fumes from overheating or combustion, move to fresh air. Consult a physician if symptoms persist.
Eyes : Not applicable under normal conditions of use.
Ingestion : No specific intervention is indicated as molding is not likely to be hazardous by ingestion. Consult a physician if necessary.
Skin : The molding is not likely to be hazardous by skin contact, but, cleansing the skin after use is advisable. If molten polymer gets on skin, cool rapidly with cold water. Do not attempt to peel molding polymer from skin. Obtain medical treatment for thermal burn.
Aggravated Medical Conditions
Pre-existing eye, skin and respiratory disorders may be aggravated by exposure.
Chronic Health Effects
Fillers are encapsulated and not expected to be released from product under normal conditions of use.
Preferred options for disposal are –
2. Incineration with Energy Recovery
The high fuel value of this product makes option 2 very desirable for material that cannot be recycled, but , incinerator must be capable of scrubbing out acidic combustion products. Treatment, storage, transportation, and disposal must be in accordance with applicable federal, state/provincial, and local regulations.
Package the Product in Paper, Plastic Film or Carton Box in order to minimize surface exposure.
Store Under normal Warehouse Conditions in cool, dry and ventilated area.
