Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Emergency Overview
No unusual conditions are expected from this product after it is aged. Freshly expanded, cut or heated foam may off-gas hydrocarbon gas which can accumulate at hazardous concentrations above the Lower Explosion Limit (LEL) if stored in closed containers or confined areas. To prevent ignition, avoid smoking, keep from open flames and high temperatures. Foam can burn and emit an irritating smoke. Grinding, cutting, sawing or fabrication activities that cut large numbers of interior foam cells can release localized amounts of
flammable residual blowing agent or release dust particles that under certain conditions may ignite or form explosive dust atmospheres.

Primary Route(s) of Exposure: inhalation, skin, eye

Potential Health Effects:
ACUTE (short term) Breathing dust may cause coughing, temporary mechanical irritation of upper respiratory tract (nose, throat) and lungs. Eye contact with foam dust may cause mild mechanical irritation, redness, tearing and blurred vision. Fumes released from heated processing or hot cutting operations may irritate eyes and respiratory tract.

Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: Treat symptomatically. Specific data are not available which address medical conditions that are generally recognized as being aggravated by exposure to this product. However, chronic respiratory or eye conditions may worsen from exposure to these products.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
There are no known chronic health effects connected with long term use or contact with this product.

Handling/Disposal
Handling: From MSDS
Do store or expose product to temperatures above 160 degrees F (> 71 degrees C). Store only in a well ventilated area. Assure storage containers or storage areas and shipping containers are adequately ventilated. Avoid containment of large amounts of foam in poorly ventilated area or containers. Flammable vapors of hydrocarbon gas (blowing agent) may accumulate in hazardous concentrations if large quantities of foam are confined in a poorly ventilated area or container. Do not store near heated equipment.
Disposal: From MSDS
Non hazardous.
