Section 3. – Hazards Identification top

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW

Solid sheet(s) of varying color(s). Dust(s) generated during machining may cause mechanical irritation to the skin, eyes, and respiratory system.

Routes of Entry:
Inhalation (dust during machining). Eye contact. Skin contact.
Potential ACUTE Health effects:
The product will not easily enter the human body. As received the product is a solid sheet. As such, there would not be any health hazards associated with it. however, if any cutting, sanding, or routing takes place, dust may be generated that may cause mechanical irritation to the eyes and respiratory tract.

EYES:

Dust generated during fabrication may irritate the eyes.

SKIN:

Any sharp edges will cut or abrade the skin. Dust generated by fabrication may cause skin sensitization. (methyl Methacrylaate has been shown to cause allergic responses at high concentrations.
RESPIRATORY TRACT: Dust generated during fabrication may cause irritation to respiratory tract, characterized by sneezing and coughing. May cause headache in case of long term exposure.
Potential CHRONIC Health Effects: Not dangerous in case of skin contact (non-corrosive for skin, non permeator by skin), of ingestion.
CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: not available.
MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: not available.
TERATOGENIC EFFECTS: not available. The substance is NOT toxic to blood, kidneys, lungs, the nervous system, the reproductive system, liver, mucous members.
Symptoms of Overexposure: No additional remark.

Medical Conditions
Aggravated by:

No additional information.



Section 4. – First Aid Measures top

Eye Contact:
Upon contact with nuisance dust particles, flush eyes immediately with large amounts of water for a minimum of 15 minutes. Seek medical attention.
Skin Contact:
