Under normal use and handling conditions there can be trace exposure to plasticizer and residual solvent vapors, however these exposures are significantly below OSHA guidelines and should not constitute a hazard in normal use.
This product contains 18-30% mixed phthalate esters. These plasticizers have low toxicity. ACGIH and OSHA have not established specific exposure limits for these plasticizers. Chemically similar plasticizers have ACGIH and OSHA exposure limits of 5 mg/m³, 8 hour time weighted average. Subjecting this material to temperatures above 250°F may liberate modest quantities of plasticizer. At temperatures above 400°F the product may decompose to HCI, CO, and other gases.
This product also contains 0.1-2% mixed solvent. This solvent is residual to printing, finishing, or back-coating operations and consists primarily of ketones.
