Route Of Entry - Inhalation: NO 
Route Of Entry - Skin: NO 
Route Of Entry - Ingestion: NO 
Health Haz Acute And Chronic: ACUTE: "TEFLON FLUOROCARBON RESINS ARE NOT
HAZARDOUS AS SHIPPED. THE PRIMARY HAZARD ASSOCIATED WITH THESE RESINS IS
THE INHALATION OF FUMES FORM OVERHEATING OR BURNING, WHICH MAY RESULT IN
"POLYMER FUME FEVER". CHRONIC: PROLONGED OR REPEATED EXPOSUE TO HYDROGEN
FLUORIDE FUMES MAY CAUSE LIVER OR KIDNEY DAMAGE.
Carcinogenicity - NTP: NO 
Carcinogenicity - IARC: NO 
Carcinogenicity - OSHA: NO 
Explanation Carcinogenicity: NO INGREDIENT OF A CONCENTRATION OF 0.1% OR
GREATER IS LISTED AS A CARCINOGEN OR SUSPECTED CARCINOGEN.
Signs/Symptoms Of Overexp: INHALATION OF HYDROGEN FLUORIDE FUMES OF
DECOMPOSITION: CHOKING, COUGHING, SEVERE EYE, NOSE & THROAT IRRITATION;
FLOLLOWED BY FEVER, CHILLS, DIFFICULTY BREATHING, CYANOSIS, PULMONARY
EDEMA. INHALATION/INGESTION/SKIN/EYE CONTACT WITH CARBONYL FLUORIDE: SKIN
IRRITATION, RESPIRATORY IRRITATION-COUGH, DIFFICULT BREATHIING.
Med Cond Aggravated By Exp: INDIVIDUALS WITH PREEXISTING DISEASES OF THE
LUNGS MAY HAVE INCREASED SUSCEPTIBILITY TO THE TOXICITY OF EXCESSIVE
EXPSOURES FROM THERMAL DECOMPOSITION OF PRODUCTS.
Emergency/First Aid Proc: INHALED-NOT A LIKELY ROUTE OF EXPOSURE. IF
EXPOSED TO FUMES FROM OVERHEATING, MOVE TO FRESH AIR. SEE A DOCTOR IF
SYMPTOMS PERSIST. SKIN: NOT HAZARDOUS BY SKIN CONTACT. IF POLYMER IS
MOLTEN, TREAT AS BURN & GET MEDICAL HELP. DO NOT ATTMEPT TO REMOVE POLYMER.
EYES-IMMEDIATELY FLUSH WITH PLENTY OF WATER FOR AT LEAST 15 MINUTES. CALL A
DOCTOR. INGESTED-NO INTERVENTION NEEDED. SEE DOCTOR IF NEEDED.

                   Precautions for Safe Handling and Use
===========================================================================
Steps If Matl Released/Spill: USE APPROPRIATE PERSONAL PROTETCIVE
EQUIPMENT IF NEEDED. SWEEP UP AND PLACE IN A CONTAINER FOR LATER DISPOSAL.
Neutralizing Agent: NONE SPECIFIED BY MANUFACTURER.
Waste Disposal Method: PREFERRED OPTIONS ARE (1) RECYCLING & (2)
LANDFILL.INCINERATE ONLY IF INCINERATIOR IS CAPABLE OF SCRUBBING OUT
HYDROGEN FLUORIDE & OTHER ACIDIC COMBUSTION PRODUCTS.TREATMENT,STORAGE,
TRANSPORTATION & DISPOSAL MUST BE IAW LOCAL,STATE & FEDERAL LAWS.
Precautions-Handling/Storing: KEEP CONTAINERS CLOSED TO AVOID
CONTAMINATION. AVOID BREATHING DUST. AVOID CONTAMINATION OF TOBACCO OR
CIGRAETTES WITH DUST FROM THIS MATERIAL.
Other Precautions: DO NOT USE A TORCH TO CLEAN THIS MATERIAL FROM
EQUIPMENT WITHOUT LOCAL EXHAUST VENTILATION AND RESPIRATOR. MATERIAL IS
NON-FLAMMABLE IN AIR, BUT WILL BURN IF OXYGEN CONCENTRATION EXCEEDS 95%.
===========================================================================
                             Control Measures
===========================================================================
Respiratory Protection: RESPIRATOR NOT NEEDED IF LOCAL EXHAUST IS
ADEQUATE. IF ENGINEERING CONTROLS FAIL OR NON-ROUTINE USE OR AN EMERGENCY
OCCURS; WEAR AN MSHA/NIOSH APPROVED RESPIRATOR OR AN AIR-SUPPLIED
RESPIRATOR OR SCBA,AS REQUIRED.USE IAW 29 CFR 1910.134.
Ventilation: IF PROCESS TEMPERATURES EXCEED 300F; LOCAL EXHAUST
VENTILATION SUFFICIENT TO MAINTAIN EXPOSURE BELOW PEL(S)/TLV(S).
Protective Gloves: IF HOT/MOLTEN MATERIAL-HEAT RESISTANT. 
Eye Protection: SAFETY GLASSES W/SIDE SHIELDS/FACESHIELD 
Other Protective Equipment: IF HOT/MOLTEN MATERIAL; WEAR HEAT-RESISTANT
CLOTHING AND FOOTWEAR.
Work Hygienic Practices: WASH HANDS AFTER HANDLING AND BEFORE EATING,
DRINKING, OR SMOKING. LAUNDER CONTAMINATED CLOTHES BEFORE REUSE.
