MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET 3M Fire Barrier 2001 Silicone RTV Foam Part B
8.1 ENGINEERING CONTROLS Use general dilution ventilation and/or local exhaust ventilation to control airborne exposures to below Occupational Exposure Limits and/or control mist, vapor, or spray. If ventilation is not adequate, use respiratory protection equipment. When parts A and B are mixed, the foam generates flammable hydrogen gas during cure. Provide forced air ventilation if the work area has less than 2 cubic feet of free air space for each pound of liquid mixture used.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)
Avoid eye contact. The following eye protection(s) are recommended: Indirect Vented Goggles .
8.2.2 Skin Protection Avoid skin contact.
Select and use gloves and/or protective clothing to prevent skin contact based on the results of an exposure assessment. Consult with your glove and/or protective clothing manufacturer for selection of appropriate compatible materials. Gloves made from the following material(s) are recommended: Neoprene .
8.2.3 Respiratory Protection Avoid breathing of vapors, mists or spray. An exposure assessment may be needed to decide if a respirator is required. If a respirator is needed, use respirators as part of a full respiratory protection program. Based on the results of the exposure assessment, select from the following respirator type(s) to reduce inhalation exposure: Half facepiece or full facepiece air-purifying respirator suitable for organic vapors and particulates
For questions about suitability for a specific application, consult with your respirator manufacturer. Use appropriate respiratory protection if processing of the cured foam creates dust.
8.2.4 Prevention of Swallowing Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash exposed areas thoroughly with soap and water.
