3. COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS

Ingredients Name CAS Proportion
Fibre glass 50-52 %
Propylene polyol diphenyl methane diisocyanate prepolymer 9048-57-1 34.1 %
Diphenylmethane-di-isocyanate (MDI) 101-68-8 7.3 %
2,2-Dimorpholinodiethylether 6425-39-4 0.32-0.34 %
Other Information When activated by water, the resin crosslinks to give a rigid material releasing carbon dioxide in small amounts. A small exothermic (heat releasing) reaction is evident when the recommended water temperatures are used.

4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Inhalation Remove source of contamination or victim to fresh air. Ensure airways are clear and have qualified person give oxygen through a facemask if breathing is difficult. If irritation develops and persists, seek immediate medical attention.
Ingestion DO NOT induce vomiting. Immediately wash mouth out with water and then give water to drink. If symptom develops or persists, seek immediate medical attention.
Skin Wash gently and thoroughly with water and non-abrasive soap. Contaminated clothing and footwear should be removed as soon as practical and thoroughly cleaned before reuse. If irritation persists or develops, seek medical attention.
Eye Wash with large amount of water for 15 minutes holding eyelid(s) open. Take care not to rinse contaminated water into non-affected eye. If irritation persists or develops, seek immediate medical attention.
First Aid Facilities Eye wash and normal washroom facilities.
Advice to Doctor Treat symptomatically.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Suitable
Extinguishing Media
Carbon dioxide, dry chemical or foam. Only use water fog to keep undamaged containers cool.
Specific Methods Self-contained breathing apparatus (S.C.B.A) and full protective clothing should be worn.
Hazchem Code None Allocated
Decomposition Temp. Not available.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Emergency Procedures Increase ventilation. Evacuate all unnecessary personnel. Wear protective clothing to minimise skin and eye exposure. If possible contain the spill. Place inert absorbent material onto spillage. Mop up material and place into the same container. If the spillage enters the waterways contact the Environmental Protection Authority, or your local Waste Management Authority.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Precautions for
Safe Handling
Repeated or prolonged contact with this material should be avoided in order to lessen the possibility of skin disorders. It is essential that all who come into contact with this material, maintain high standards of personal hygiene i.e. washing hands prior to eating, drinking, smoking or going to the toilet. Build-up of vapour or mist in the working atmosphere must be prevented. Ensure ventilation is adequate. DO NOT enter confined spaces where vapour or mist may have collected. Keep containers closed when not in use.
Conditions for Safe
Storage
Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area, out of direct sunlight. Avoid extreme heat. Avoid contact with incompatible materials. Keep well closed when not in use.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

National Exposure
Standards
No exposure standards have been established for this material by the National Occupational Health And Safety Commission (NOHSC). However, over-exposure to any chemical may result in enhancement of pre-existing adverse medical conditions and/or allergic reactions. NOHSC Standard of the constituent is listed below:
SUBSTANCE TWA STEL NOTICES
ppm mg/m3 ppm mg/m3
Isocyanates, all (as -NCO) - 0.02 - 0.07 Sen
As published by the New Zealand Occupational Safety and Health Service (OSH):
TWA - the Time-Weighted Average airborne concentration over an eight-hour working day, for a five-day working week over an entire working life.
STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) - the average airborne concentration over a 15 minute period which should not be exceeded at any time during a normal eight-hour workday.
According to current knowledge these concentrations should neither impair the health of, nor cause undue discomfort to, nearly all workers.
'Sen' notice - sensitiser. The substance can cause a specific immune response in some people. An affected individual may subsequently react to exposure to minute levels of that substance.
These Exposure Standards are guides to be used in the control of occupational health hazards. All atmospheric contamination should be kept to as low a level as is workable. Exposure Standards should not be used as fine dividing lines between safe and dangerous concentrations of chemicals, they are not a measure of relative toxicity.
Biological Limit
Values
No biological limit allocated.
Engineering Controls Use only in a well ventilated area. Where vapours or dust are generated and exposure standards are exceeded, the use of respiratory protection, or a local exhaust ventilation system is recommended.
Respiratory
Protection
If engineering controls are not effective in controlling airborne exposure then respiratory protective equipment should be used suitable for protecting against airborne contaminants, organic vapour respirator or supplied air respirator. Final choice of appropriate breathing protection is dependant upon actual airborne concentrations and the type of breathing protection required will vary according to individual circumstances. Expert advice may be required to make this decision. Reference should be made to Australian Standards AS/NZS 1715, Selection, Use and maintenance of Respiratory Protective Devices; and AS/NZS 1716, Respiratory Protective Devices.
Eye Protection Safety glasses with side shields, goggles or full-face shield as appropriate recommended. Final choice of appropriate eye/face protection will vary according to individual circumstances i.e. methods of handling or engineering controls and according to risk assessments undertaken. Eye protection should conform with Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1337 - Eye Protectors for Industrial Applications.
Hand Protection Wear gloves of impervious material, PVC or nitrile rubber. Final choice of appropriate gloves will vary according to individual circumstances i.e. methods of handling or according to risk assessments undertaken. Reference should be made to AS/NZS 2161.1: Occupational protective gloves - Selection, use and maintenance.
Body Protection Wear appropriate clothing including chemical resistant apron where clothing is likely to be contaminated. It is advisable that a local supplier of personal protective clothing is consulted regarding the choice of material.

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Toxicology
Information
Acute toxicity:
LD50 ORAL (rat): > 2000 mg/kg
Inhalation May cause sensitisation by inhalation. Will cause irritation to the mucous membrane and upper airways, especially if the material is heated or dust are generated. Inhalation of high concentration may lead to headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, loss of co-ordination.
Ingestion May cause irritation of the gastrointestinal system. Symptoms may include pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.
Skin Will cause irritation in contact with the skin, which can result in redness, stinging, itching and possible dermatitis.
SENSITISATION: May cause redness, itching and irritation. This product may cause sensitisation in some individuals. Some substances such as MDI can cause a specific immune response in some people. Such substances are called sensitisers and the development of a specific immune response is termed 'sensitisation'.
Exposure to a sensitiser, once sensitisation has occured, may manifest itself as a skin rash or inflammation or as an asthmatic condition, and in some individuals this reaction can be extremely severe.
Eye Will cause eye irritation resulting in redness, swelling and stinging.
Chronic Effects Prolonged or repeated exposure may lead to sensitisation of the respiratory system and skin.
