3.  HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

3.1  EMERGENCY OVERVIEW

Opaque yellowish white or colored pellets with slight or no odor. Slipped pellets create slipping hazard. It can burn in a fire with toxic smoke. Melted material can cause serious burns. Fumes and smoke generated during melt processing may cause eye, skin and respiratory tract irritation. Secondary processing can produce dust, which may cause respiratory hazard and an explosion.

3.2  CLASS NAME OF HAZARDS CHEMICALS FOR MSDS IN JAPAN

Not Applicable.

3.3  PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL HAZARDS

Not Applicable.

3.4  POTENTIAL HUMAN HEALTH EFFECTS

Eye          :  May cause irritation or injury due to mechanical action.
Skin         :  Pellets not likely to cause skin irritation.
Ingestion :  Not acute toxicity.
Inhalation :  Pellet inhalation unlikely due to its physical form.

3.5  ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS

Not Applicable.

3.6  OTHERS

See REGULATORY INFORMATION.

4.  FIRST-AID MEASURES

4.1 INHALATION
Not likely to be inhaled due to its physical form. However, if symptoms are experienced, move victim to fresh air place. Seek medical assistance for further treatment, observation and support if necessary.

For processing fume inhalation irritation, leave contaminated area and breathe fresh air. If coughing, difficult breathing or any other symptoms develop seek medical assistance at once, even if symptoms develop at a later time.

4.2 SKIN CONTACT
Wash skin thoroughly with soap and gently water. Seek medical assistance for further treatment, observation and support if necessary.

For molten resin skin contact, cool rapidly with water and immediately seek medical assistance. Do not attempt removal of resin without medical assistance. Do not use solvent for removal.

For skin contact with fume condensate, immediately wash thoroughly with soap and water. If irritation develops seek medical assistance.

4.3  EYE CONTACT

Remove contact lenses at once. Immediately flush the contaminated eye(s) with gently clear water or normal saline for at least 20-30 minutes. Seek medical assistance for further treatment, observation and support if necessary.

4.4  INGESTION

Have victim rinse mouth thoroughly with water. Seek medical assistance for further treatment, observation and support if necessary.

5.  FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

5.1  SPECIFIC HAZARDS WITH REGARD TO FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Apply water from a safe distance to cool and protect area. Move container from fire area if it can be done without risk. Keep personnel to safe area. The heat generated by a fire will liberate toxic fumes and smoke, such as dense black smoke, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen cyanide and hydrocarbon fragments. Breathing apparatus that is approved pressure demand and protective clothing should be used for all fires.

5.2  EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

Water spray, carbon dioxide foam, polymer foam and dry chemical foam. Water spray is the best extinguishing medium. Carbon dioxide and dry chemical foam are not generally recommended because their lack of cooling capacity may permit re-ignition.

6.  ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

6.1  MEASURES FOR HANDLING PERSONNEL

Shut off all sources of ignition and wear dust mask if dust is presents.

6.2  MEASURES FOR ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS

Do not flush to sewer or drain. In case of huge amount is released and spilled, it may     cause environmental impact of pollution.

6.3  MEASURES WHEN HANDLING SPILLED SUBSTANCES

Restrict access to area until completion of clean up. Shovel into clean, labeled containers and cover. Sweep or gather up material immediately and place in proper container for disposal and recovery.

7.   HANDLING AND STORAGE

7.1  HANDLING

Exposure control for handling personnel:
Ventilate the room in order to remove dust, heat and products of pyrolysis.
Use good industrial hygiene practices.
Prevent contact with skin and eyes.

Protective measures against fire & explosion:
Prevent accumulation of dust.
Avoid generating fumes or dust.
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
In case of fire and/or explosion, do not breathe fumes.

Others:
Avoid rough handling or dropping.
Do not flush to sewer or drain.

7.2  STORAGE

Store in a dry place away from moisture, excessive heat, sunlight and sources of ignition.

-
Neither Japan Association of Industrial Health and Hygiene nor ACGIH specifies the tolerable concentration of ABS resin dust, but it is believed that the above values are reasonable guidelines for operation.

8.2  ENGINEERING MEASURES

In order to keep suitable working environment, a continuous supply of fresh air with ventilation systems is recommended.

Local Exhaust :
Required when material is heated at more than 200°C.

Special :
Use process enclosure if necessary to control airborne smelling.

If engineering controls are not effective in controlling exposure to this material or its fumes or impurities, then wear suitable personal protective equipment including approved respiratory protection as mentioned below.

8.3  PERSONAL PROTECTION

Eye / Face : 
Wear safety glasses with side shields or chemical goggles. Moreover, useful face shield when processing fumes condenses from hoods, ducts and other surfaces.

Skin :
Wear safety gloves to prevent any contact with processing fume condenses. Wear long pants, long sleeves and safety shoes when applicable.

Respiratory :
When processing fumes, and dust or powder form secondary processing are not adequately controlled, use respiratory approved for protection from organic vapors and gases.
