Material Safety Data Sheet For Circular Knitted Polyester Fabric Revised: 01.08.2010

% N.D. (Not defined)

0 – 1.5 0 – 2.0 0 – 2.5

0.8 – aprox. 3.0 0 – aprox. 8 0 – aprox. 6

If the fabric product is used as intended, so far no impairments of health have become known.
If being used at temperatures between approximately 130°C and 190°C the applied finish may evaporate or decompose. If the product is intended for use in special applications (e.g. in the food industry or in the hygiene, medical or surgery sectors) special requirements specific to application should be investigated.

2.2 Components (remarks)

2.2.1 Fabric finish

The product itself is not toxic.

If the fabric product is used as intended, so far no impairments of health have become known. If being used at temperatures between approximately 130°C and 190°C the applied finish may evaporate or decompose.

If the product is intended for use in special applications (e.g. in the food industry or in the hygiene, medical or surgery sectors) special requirements specific to application should be investigated.

2.2.2 There are only dyestuffs used, which -according to suppliers information- cannot release amines of MAK classes III A1 or III A2 or which are indicated as carcinogens.

2.2.3  Residual solvents: n.a.

3. Hazards identification

Emergency overview

We believe that there exists no risk to the health of employees if the fabric product is processed and handled properly.

4. First aid measures

4.1  Inhalation

A hazard caused by the inhalation of the product is unlikely, Therefore, no special treatment is necessary. Fiber fly, dust and decomposition products of the finishes are to be avoided by means of removal by suction and ventilation. If exposed to excessive levels of fiber dust or fly, remove to fresh air and get medical attention if cough or other symptoms develop.

4.2  Eyes

Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water. Get medical attention if irritation persists.

4.3  Skin

Wash with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.

4.4  Ingestion

No specific cautions necessary. Get medical attention if required.

5. Fire fighting measures

5.1   Flammable properties

Flash point: Non applicable, product will burn in a fire
 
Forced ignition temperature: Non detected
 
Auto-ignition temperature: 510°C
 
Decomposition temperature 350°C
 
Hazardous combustion products: Carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. Under certain circumstances also low molecular weight organic compounds.

Unusual fire and explosion hazards: Accumulation of fiber dust and fly at sufficient concentrations could present a fire hazard. Keep away ignition sources. Do not forget the effects of electrostatic charge.

5.2  Extinguishing media

5.3  Fire fighting in confined spaces: Use autonomous respirators.

6. Accidental release measures

Cleaning up 

Before cleaning up, study the sections “Fire fighting measures” and “Handling and storage” of this document. Use personal protection during cleaning activities.

7. Handling and storage 

All fabric rolls or pieces, storage cartons and bales should be stored in accordance with relevant provisions and good material handling practices.

8. Exposure controls and personal protection

8.1 Avoid extreme concentrations of fiber fly, dust and decomposition products of the finish by means of removal by suction and ventilation

8.2 Personal protective equipment

8.2.1 Eye protection

Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles)

8.2.2  Skin protection 

Fabrics being handled or processed at high speeds can cause abrasions and cuts. It is a good industrial hygiene practice to minimize skin contact.

8.2.3 Respiratory protection 

Should only be needed if relevant provisions (e.g. MAK values) have been enacted.

9. Physical and Chemical properties

9.1 Forced ignition temperature

9.2 Auto-ignition temperature

9.3 Decomposition Temperature

10. Stability and reactivity

10.1 Chemical stability

10.2 Conditions to avoid Filament yarn, knitted into tubular fabric form in roll form or in cut lengths Bright or dull Raw white or dyed of various colours or combinations thereof. Odorless1.3 – 1.4 gr/cc @ 20°C 250 – 260 °C Negligiblen.a. Not detected 510°C > 350°C StableTemperatures above 350°C will cause decompositions in the presence of oxygen (see also items 5.1 and 10.4).

10.3 Incompatibility with other materials 

Incompatible or can react with strong oxidizers, bases and acids.

10.4 Decomposition 

Hazardous decomposition products: carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide under certain circumstances also low molecular weigh organic compounds.

10.5 Polymerization

Polymerization will not occur.

11. Toxicological information 

The product itself is not toxic.

12. Ecological information

12.1 Ecotoxicological information.

The fabric (polymer) is ecologically not hazardous. Above 130°C the finish will evaporate or start to decompose.

13. Disposal considerations

Waste disposal

Complying with local statutory regulations, the fabric product is to be disposed like non hazardous waste in an authorized disposal facility.

14. Transportation information 

There is no data available.

15. Regulatory information 

The fabric product is not a hazardous product in the meaning of national and international regulations/provisions
