MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET 3M Fire Barrier 2001 Silicone RTV Foam Part A
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Wear full protective equipment (Bunker Gear) and a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Non-flammable: ordinary combustible material.
Note: See STABILITY AND REACTIVITY (SECTION 10) for hazardous combustion and thermal decomposition information.
SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures Evacuate unprotected and untrained personnel from hazard area. The spill should be cleaned up by qualified personnel. Ventilate the area with fresh air. For large spill, or spills in confined spaces, provide mechanical ventilation to disperse or exhaust vapors, in accordance with good industrial hygiene practice. Warning! A motor could be an ignition source and could cause flammable gases or vapors in the spill area to burn or explode.
6.2. Environmental precautions For larger spills, cover drains and build dikes to prevent entry into sewer systems or bodies of water. Place in a closed container approved for transportation by appropriate authorities. Dispose of collected material as soon as possible.
Clean-up methods Observe precautions from other sections. Call 3M- HELPS line (1-800-364-3577) for more information on handling and managing the spill. Contain spill. Working from around the edges of the spill inward, cover with bentonite, vermiculite, or commercially available inorganic absorbent material. Mix in sufficient absorbent until it appears dry. Collect as much of the spilled material as possible. Clean up residue with an appropriate solvent selected by a qualified and authorized person. Ventilate the area with fresh air. Read and follow safety precautions on the solvent label and MSDS.
In the event of a release of this material, the user should determine if the release qualifies as reportable according to local, state, and federal regulations.
SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
7.1 HANDLING For industrial or professional use only. Avoid breathing of vapors, mists or spray. Avoid eye contact. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash exposed areas thoroughly with soap and water. Avoid contact with oxidizing agents. Use general dilution ventilation and/or local exhaust ventilation to control airborne exposures to below Occupational Exposure Limits. If ventilation is not adequate, use respiratory protection equipment. See ENGINEERING CONTROLS.
7.2 STORAGE Store away from flammable and combustible materials. Store away from oxidizing agents.
SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
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.
