No restrictions for the technical application area of the product.
Hardened polyester/phenol reinforced with glass fibres with a diameter of 9 - 20 µ. The liquid resin contains styrene that forms a web during the hardening process. The hardened workpieces can contain small residual amounts of styrene (< 5%). This is released extremely slowly.
With regard to their properties, profiles and grates made from glass-fibre reinforced plastics are not dangerous. However, the dust that can form when products are cut or ground can cause irritation to the eyes, mucous membranes, and skin.
Thoroughly rinse eyes with copious amounts of water. Keep your eyes open when rinsing them. If you wear contact lenses, take them out. If the irritation continues, contact a doct
Thoroughly rinse off dust resulting from cutting or grinding with water. Prevent against irritation by using a suitable barrier cream.
Any person who breathes in large quantities of dust should immediately be placed in the open air.
If irritation continues, contact a doctor.
Water, powder, foam, or CO. Normal fire gases are released.
In the case of polyester, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and carbon black are released.
In the case of phenol, the formation of smoke is well below permitted values.
The emission of toxic smoke gases is also extremely low.
No emissions caused by the products are possible.
During processing, jointing and grinding can cause the formation of dust that contains glass fibres. Make sure that the work area has sufficient ventilation or provide dust masks to prevent workers from breathing in dust resulting from cutting or grinding. The product contains low residual quantities of styrene monomers that can detach from the cutting surface. If carrying out frequent jointing or grinding in small rooms, ventilation may be beneficial in order to prevent dust from being breathed in. However, the styrene content is so low that it poses no danger to health.
No special measures required.
When machining parts, ensure adequate ventilation and precision extraction. In addition, observe any exposure limit values that apply to workplaces in the country of work.
If sufficient ventilation is not provided, reliable masks with dust filters must be worn when carrying out jointing or grinding.
Wear safety goggles.
No measures other than ensuring that clean work clothes that cover the whole body are worn. If required, barrier cream can be applied to the neck and wrists to prevent irritation.
Stable, heterogeneous material
The material smells slightly of styrene, but the odour threshold is very low (around 0.1 ppm).
490 ° C
Not soluble in water
The product is stable under normal storage and temperature conditions.
During grinding / jointing work, the resulting dust can enter the mucous membranes of the airways. Dust particles can cause irritation to the lungs.
During grinding / jointing work, the resulting dust can cause irritation to the eyes.
Grinding dust can cause temporary irritation to the skin, particularly in the neck and wrist areas.
The product is extremely stable and barely degrades.
Waste can be burned or disposed of in landfills.
The product is not classified as a hazardous substance.
In accordance with EEC Directive 99/155/EEC, no safety data sheet is required for this product; however, the present data sheet was formulated in accordance with this directive. The specifications above are based on current knowledge and EC legislation. They also assume that the product is being used for normal purposes in accordance with point 1.
