SARA Section 313 Toxic Chemicals:

Contains no ingredients on this list.



Section 3: Hazard Identification



Potential Health Effects:

Eye contact:  Eye contact may cause irritation.

Skin contact:  May cause skin irritation.

Skin absorption:  No acute effects expected.

Ingestion:  This product may cause gastrointestinal distress with
            symptoms of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain.

Inhalation:  Inhalation of decomposition products occurs if heated
             >300 C (572 F) or of smoke from contaminated tobacco
             products may cause respiratory irritation and induce
             Polymer Fume Fever condition.  Symptoms of exposure to
             decomposition products are:  lung irritation, pulmonary
             edema, flu-like symptoms (example - fever chills).  No
             medical conditions are known to be aggravated by exposure.

Chronic effects:  A review of the literature does not show obvious
                  long term hazards.

Routes of exposure:  Skin contact, eye contact, inhalation



Section 4: First Aid Measures


Eyes:  In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with copious 
       amounts of flowing water for at least 15 minutes, retracting 
       eye lids often.  Get medical attention if irritation persists.

Skin:  Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and water.  Flush with 
       luke warm water for 15 minutes.  Obtain immediate medical 
       attention if fluid is injected under the skin.

Ingestion:  Do not induce vomiting!  Immediate give two glasses of 
            charcoal slurry or plain water.  Do not attempt to give 
            anything by mouth to an unconscious person.  Contact a 
            physician at once.  If unconscious, immediately take 
            affected person to a hospital.

Inhalation:  Remove from exposure area to fresh air immediately.  
             Administer oxygen if deemed necessary.  Polymer Fume 
             Fever symptoms should subside within twenty four hours.



Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures

      

Flammability classification:  Not classified.

Flammable Properties:

Flash Point:  None

Flammable Limits:  Lower:  Not applicable
                   Upper:  Not applicable

Flash Point/Method:  Not applicable

Auto-Ignition Temperature:  Not determined


Hazardous Products of Combustion:
NFPA health hazard rating of "3" assigned due to toxicity of thermal decomposition products, fluorine (HF), otherwise the material itself warrants a health hazard rating of "1". Decomposition at high temperatures > 200 C (392 F) yields hydrogen fluoride (HF), carbonyl fluoride and other acid fluorides. Properties that could increase fire or explosion risk: None known Extinguishing Media: Not a fire hazard. Use extinguishing materials to treat the surrounding fire, such as water (spray or fog), foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide (CO2) Special Conditions to Avoid: High temperatures Fire Fighting Instructions: Water or foam may cause frothing. Use water to keep fire exposed container cool. Water spray may be used to flush spills away from exposure. For fires in enclosed areas, firefighters must use self-contained breathing apparatus. Prevent runoff from fire control or dilution from entering streams or drinking water supply. Unusual Fire Hazards: Fluoropolymers will degrade upon prolonged heating or in a fire, liberating carbonyl fluoride and hydrogen fluoride (HF). This gas is toxic if inhaled or it comes into contact with moist skin. HF has an ACGIH TLV ceiling limit of 3 ppm (2.6 mg/m3) and an OSHA PEL TWA of 3 ppm. Carbonyl fluoride has an ACGIL TLV and OSHA PEL TWA of 2 ppm (5 mg/m3). Firefighting procedures: Use self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and skin protection for acid gas exposure. Do not enter fire area without proper protection. Fight fire from safe distance. If possible, air monitoring should be performed.


Section 6: Accidental Release Measures

      

Release response:
Scrape up excess grease and store in closed containers until disposal.
Clean up area with appropriate cleaner, possibly using Perfluorosolv PFS-1
a special cleaning solvent for this type of grease, to minimize the
possibilities of any remaining slipping hazard.  Until this is done,
make sure appropriate caution signs pointing out the slipping hazard
area are in place.

Store in approved metal containers until disposal.

Recommended disposal:
Dispose according to applicable local, state/provincial and
federal regulations.




Section 7: Handling and Storage


Storage and handling:

Store in sealed containers at room temperature.  Avoid prolonged/repeated
breathing of vapors, mists, fumes.  Keep container tightly closed.  Do not
store near combustible materials or heat.  Keep away from heat, sparks,
and flames.  Wash hands after use and before handling food or applying
cosmetics.  Do not use tobacco products in the immediate area.  Do not
contaminate cigarette or cigar products with the product because it will
decompose in the heat of the cigarette (or cigar) to HF which is very
toxic.  Maintain adequate ventilation.



Section 8: Exposure Controls and Personal Protection


ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (8 hour time weighted average)
            None established

OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (8 hour time weighted average)
            None established

Engineering Controls:

Ventilation requirements:
Local exhaust, vent vapors or mists generated by processing away from
operating personnel.  


Skin:
Use Neoprene type gloves when handling this product.

Eye:
ANSI 87.1 approved safety glasses with side shields or equivalent or
chemical goggles.

Respiratory protection:
Use NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator with organic vapor cartridge if vapor
concentrations exceeds permissible exposure limit.  Not normally required;
provide exhaust if temperature is expected to exceed 300C (572F).

Other:

Impervious protective clothing and chemical resistant safety shoes should
be worn to minimize contact.  Wash contaminated clothing with soap and
water and dry before reuse.  Emergency shower and eyewash facility should
be provided in all areas in which this product is handled.
