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: Not expected to be a problem. May
cause skin sensitization. Gently and thoroughly wash the contaminated
skin with running water and non-abrasive soap. If irritation persists,
seek medical attention. 

Inhalation: Repeated or prolonged inhalation of
dust may lead to chronic respiratory irritation. Allow the victim
to rest in a well ventilated area. Oxygen may be administered if
breathing is difficult. Seek medical attention
