Description: Manufacturer:

Chemical family: Composition: Polyolefin polymers A reactor manufactured copolymer of low density polyethylene with ethylene vinyl acetate comonomer. CAS RN: 9002-88-4 May contain up to 0.5 weight % of any but not all of the following: Amorphous Silica Cristobalite Flux-calcined Diatomaceous Earth Crystalline Silica Erucamide Phenolic Based Anti-Oxidants


The additives in the product are encapsulated in a thermoplastic resin with limited release under normal conditions of transportation and use. Increased release may occur when the resin is melted, ground to a smaller particle size or subjected to decomposition.

Fire, Explosion, and Reactivity Data
Hazards: Dense smoke emitted when burned without sufficient oxygen. May burn or react violently with fluorine/oxygen mixtures with 50 to 100% fluorine. May be decomposed by strong oxidizers such as nitric or sulfuric acids, halogens, hydrogen peroxide and chlorinating agents.

Hazardous Decomposition:

Avoid temperatures above 300 degrees C. Thermal decomposition products can include carbon, carbon mono- and di-oxides, water, organic vapors, vinyl acetate monomer, acetic acid fumes, and fumes possibly containing silica dust. Fire fighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus in the positive pressure mode with a full face piece when there is a possibility of exposure to smoke, fumes or hazardous decomposition products. The application of high velocity water may spread the burning surface layer.

Health Information and Occupational Exposure Limits
Inhalation: Ingestion: This product is an inert solid at room temperatures. May cause choking if swallowed. The product is considered physiologically inert. dust generated from abrading the film may cause eye irritation from mechanical action. If irritation occurs, irrigate with water for at least 5 minutes for relief Absorption though the skin is unlikely. The product is essentially non-irritating

Eye hazards:

Skin contact/absorption:
