SECTION 3:
HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Emergency Overview
This product has no known critical hazards. However, handling or processing of this
material may generate dust that may cause mechanical irritation of the eyes, skin,
nose and throat. High dust concentrations have a potential for combustion or
explosion. Decomposition products may cause headache or irritation if inhaled for
prolonged periods. Contact with molten materials may cause thermal burns.
Primary Entry Routes
Inhalation, eye contact, skin contact, ingestion

PETROLENE® POLYPROPYLENE HOMOPOLYMER
Eye Contact
Solid particles or dust may cause transient irritation as a result of mechanical
abrasion. Heated material can cause thermal burns. Process fumes may cause
irritation. When heated to decomposition, it emits smoke and irritating fumes.
Skin Contact
No significant irritation expected other than possible mechanical irritation. Heated
material can cause thermal burns
Ingestion
May cause choking if swallowed. Can cause irritation and intestinal obstruction.
Essentially non-toxic.
Inhalation
At ambient temperature, no significant health effect is identified. At elevated
temperatures, the product may forms vapors or fumes which could cause irritation of
the respiratory tract, coughing, and shortness of breath. Dust may produce
mechanical irritation to the nose, throat and upper respiratory tract
Medical Conditions
Aggravated by Exposure
Polypropylene is generally accepted as biologically inert.
SECTION 4:
FIRST AID MEASURES
Eye Contact
If dust contact with eye(s), flush eyes thoroughly with clean water for several
minutes. Remove contact lenses, if worn. If molten material should splash into
eyes, flush immediately with water for at least 15 min, and get medical attention.
Skin Contact
If hot or molten material comes in contact with the skin, flush skin immediately
with large amounts of cold water. Do not use ice. Do not attempt to remove any
polymer adhering to the skin or any clothing attached with the molten material.
Seek immediate medical attention.
Ingestion
First aid not normally required. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by
medical personnel. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
Inhalation
If affected by fumes from heated material, remove from source of exposure and
move the affected person into fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration.
If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Seek medical attention.
SECTION 5:
FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Flammability Overview
Polypropylene will burn if ignited. It may be combustible at high temperatures. Dust
or fines may disperse in the air, and can be explosive.
Flash Point, oC
348oC (650oF)
Autoignition Temperature, oC
388oC (730oF)
Flammable Limits, oC
Not Applicable
Extinguishing Media
Water fog, foam, dry chemical, CO2
Fire Fighting Procedures
Use only suitable extinguishing media. Do not use water jet nor direct a solid stream
of foam into burning material as it may spread the fire. Fire fighters should wear
positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and full protective
clothing.

Thermal Decomposition Products
Normal combustion forms carbon dioxide, water, carbon monoxide, original
monomer, and other hydrocarbon oxidation products including formaldehyde,
depending on temperature and air availability.
SECTION 6:
ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Response to Spill
Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a designated labeled waste container.
Collect spillage for recycling, or disposal according to local regulations. All spill of
granules (pellets) must be removed immediately to prevent slipping accident.
Environment Precautions
Do not flush spilled material to sewer/waterways or the environment.
SECTION 7:
HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling Precautions
No special requirements necessary, if handled at room temperature. When handling
hot or molten material, wear gloves, clothing and face shield that are able to
withstand the temperature of the heated material. Provide appropriate ventilation
and avoid inhalation of fumes while processing the molten material. Maintain good
housekeeping. Spilled materials may create a slipping hazard. Remove dust from
settling areas to prevent any secondary potential dust explosion or fire hazards.
Electrostatics charge may build up during handling. Grounding of equipment is
recommended.
Storage Precautions
Keep dry. Store away from extreme heat, open flames, direct sunlight, and from
strong oxidizing agents. Take precautions for pallet stock slippage and forklift truck
maneuvers which can cause injury to personnel, and damage to materials. It is
recommended to conduct a site specific risk assessment to determine the maximum
height by which bags or pallets can be stacked safely.
SECTION 8:
EXPOSURE CONTROL/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Limits
Polymer Dust
ACGIH TLV-TWA
3 mg/m3 for Respirable Dust
10 mg/m3 for Total Dust
OSHA PEL-TWA
5 mg/m3 for Respirable Dust
15 mg/m3 for Total Dust
Engineering Controls
If handling results in dust generation, special ventilation is recommended to ensure
that dust exposure does not exceed the exposure limits. Where vapors or fumes are
generated during product processing, use process enclosures, local exhaust
ventilation, and ensure that the working area is properly ventilated.
Skin, Body & Hands Protection
For hot material, wear heat-resistant protective gloves, clothing and face shield that
are able to withstand the temperature of the molten product.
For cold material, none is required, but use of gloves is good industrial practice.
The correct choice of protective gloves depends on the actual conditions of work and
use, and should be chosen after full assessment of the working conditions.
Eye Protection
Use safety glasses with side shields. If high dust concentration is generated, use
dust goggles.

Respiratory Protection
None required in normal use of product. NIOSH approved dust mask recommended if
dusty conditions exist, e.g. when cutting or abrading. When vapors or fumes are not
adequately controlled, wear an air-purifying respirator with element suitable for
Organic Vapor and Formaldehyde.

Conditions to Avoid
Avoid heating above the recommended processing temperature. If heated above
300oC, the product may form irritating and hazardous vapors or fumes. Avoid the
creation of dust when handling. To avoid fire or explosion, dissipate static
electricity during transfer by grounding and bonding containers and equipment
before transferring material.
