=====================  Hazards Identification  =====================

LD50 LC50 Mixture:SEE TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION.
Routes of Entry: Inhalation:YES  Skin:YES  Ingestion:NO
Reports of Carcinogenicity:NTP:YES    IARC:YES	  OSHA:YES
Health Hazards Acute and Chronic:ACUTE (SHORT TERM): FIBER GLASS WOOL
    IS A MECHANICAL IRRITANT AND MAY CAUSE TEMPORARY IRRITATION OF THE
    RESPIRATORY TRACT, SKIN AND EYES. CHRONIC (LONG TERM): FIBER GLASS
    WOOL IS A POSSIBLE CANCER HAZ ARD. USE OF THESE PRODUCTS HAS NOT
    BEEN SHOWN TO CAUSE CANCER IN HUMANS. FIBER GLASS WOOL CAUSED
    CANCER IN ANIMALS THROUGH UNNATURAL ROUTES OF EXPOSURE (SURGICAL
    IMPLANTATION), BUT HAS NOT PRODUCED  C ANCER BY INHALATION. SEE
    TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION FOR EXPLANATION OF THESE DATA.
Explanation of Carcinogenicity:FORMALDEHYDE: ACGIH A2: SUSPECTED HUMAN
    CARCINOGEN. FIBER GLASS WOOL: ACGIH A3: ANIMAL CARCINOGEN. SEE
    TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION FOR COMPLETE INFORMATION.
Effects of Overexposure:SEE HLTH HAZS. STATE REG INFO: THAT GLASS WOOL
    IS NOT LIKELY TO CAUSE CANCER IN HUMANS EXCEPT UNDER
    UNCOMMON/UNLIKELY RTES/LEVELS OF EXPOS. TLV-TWA OF 1 RESP FIBER/CC
    WAS ADOPTED TO PVNT IRRIT OF RESP  TRACT/ANY POSS LONG-TERM RESP
    HLTH EFTS IN WORKERS. ANIMAL STUDIES: OVER LAST 50+ YRS THERE HAVE
    BEEN NUMEROUS STUDIES ON POTENTIAL HLTH EFTS TO GLASS FIBERS IN
    ANIMALS. THERE ARE 2 MAJOR TYPES OF AN IMAL STUDIES: 1) INHAL WHERE
    ANIMALS BREATH GLASS WOOL FIBERS, & 2) INSTILLATION STUDIES WHERE
    FIBERS ARE INJECTED/SURGICALLY IMPLANTED DIRECTLY INTO ANIMAL.
    PLEASE CONT NEHC FOR MORE COMPLETE INFO ON	TOXICITY.
Medical Cond Aggravated by Exposure:CHRONIC RESPIRATORY OR SKIN
    CONDITIONS MAY TEMPORARILY	WORSEN FROM EXPOSURE TO THESE PRODUCTS.

=======================  First Aid Measures  =======================

First Aid:INHAL: MOVE TO FRESH AIR. ADMINISTER CARDIAC/PULMONARY
    RESUSCITATION (CPR) IF PULSE IS NOT DETECTABLE/IF UNABLE TO
    BREATHE. PROVIDE OXYGEN IF BREATHING IS DIFFICULT. OBTAIN MED
    ASSIST IF IRRIT PERSIST S. EYES: FLUSH W/RUNNING WATER FOR AT LEAST
    15 MINUTES. SEEK MED ATTN IF IRRIT PERSISTS. SKIN: WASH W/MILD SOAP
    & RUNNING WATER. USE WASH CLOTH TO HELP REMOVE FIBERS. TO AVOID
    FURTHER IRRIT, DO NOT RU B/SCRATCH IRRITATED AREAS.
    RUBBING/SCRATCHING MAY FORCE FIBERS INTO SKIN. SEEK MED ATTN IF
    IRRIT PERSISTS. INGEST: INGEST IS UNLIKELY. IF IT DOES OCCUR,
    OBSERVE INDIVIDUAL FOR SEVERAL DAYS TO INSURE T HAT INTESTINAL
    BLOCKAGE DOES NOT OCCUR.

===================  Toxicological Information	===================

Toxicological Information:FORMALDEHYDE: LD50 (ORAL RAT): 500-800 MG/KG;
    LD50 (DERMAL RABBIT): 270 MG/KG; LC50 (INHAL RAT) (4 HRS): 250-478
    PPM. FORMALDEHYDE: IN MARCH 1987 IARC UPGRADED THEIR OVERALL
    EVALUATION OF FORMALDEHYDE	GAS, BASED ON EVIDENCE OF CARCIN IN
    HUMANS, FROM POSS HUMAN CARCIN (GROUP 2B BASED ON INADEQ EVIDENCE
    IN HUMANS). A NUMBER OF NEW EPIDEMIOLOGICAL STUDIES ON PERS IN
    VARIETY OF OCCUPATIONS W/POTENTIAL	EXPOS TO FORMALDEHYDE WERE USED
    IN EVALUATION. CANCERS THAT OCCURRED IN EXCESS IN MORE THAN ONE
    STUDY ARE: HODGKIN'S DISEASE, LEUKEMIA, & CANCERS OF BUCCAL CAVITY
    & PHARYNX (PARTICULARLY NASOPHARYNX) , LUNG, NOSE, (ECOLOGICAL
    INFO)

=====================  Ecological Information  =====================

Ecological:NOT TOX TO ANIMALS, PLANTS/FISH. TOX INFO: PROSTATE,
    BLADDER, BRAIN, COLON, SKIN & KIDNEY. EXPOS TO FORMALDEHYDE AT
    CONCS IN EXCESS OF 1 PPM MAY CAUSE SIGNIFICANT IRRIT OF EYES &
    UPPER RESP TRACT. IRR IT THRESHOLD APPEARS TO BE ABOUT 0.3 PPM.
    PULM SENSIT, ALTHOUGH RARE, DOES OCCUR IN HUMANS. FORMALDEHYDE
    SOLNS CAN CAUSE SEV EYE & MOD SKIN IRRIT. RPTD SKIN EXPOS TO SOLNS
    OF 2% OR MORE FORMALDEHYDE H AS CAUSED ALLERGIC SKIN RXNS.
    FORMALDEHYDE WASH FOUND TO BE WEAKLY ACTIVE IN A NUMBER OF IN VITRO
    GENOTOX TESTS, BUT INACTIVE IN VIVO. FORMALDEHYDE DOES NOT CAUSE
    BIRTH DEFECTS IN OFFSPRING OF FEMALE  MICE EXPOSED TO CONCS UP
    (SARA REG INFO)

=====================  Regulatory Information  =====================

SARA Title III Information:ECOLOGICAL INFO: TO 10 PPM. LIFETIME INHAL
    OF FORMALDEHYDE AT CONCS >5 PPM FOR 6 HRS/DAY, CAUSED NASAL TUMORS
    IN LAB ANIMALS. MANY EPIDEMIOLOGICAL STUDIES HAVE FAILED TO LINK
    CANCER IN HUMANS W/OCCUP  EXPOS TO FORMALDEHYDE. ACGIH A2
    DESIGNATION, SUSPECTED HUMAN CARCIN, IS BASED ON CANCER IN EXPT
    ANIMALS & CONFLICTING/INSUFFICIENT EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES OF
    WORKERS. REC CEILING TLV OF 0.3 PPM FOR WORK PLACE AIR FORMALDEHYDE
    IS BASED ON EVIDENCE OF IRRIT OF OCCUP EXPOS TO FORMALDEHYDE AS
    WELL AS HUMAN FORMALDEHYDE EXPOS IN OTHER SETTINGS. FIBER GLASS
    WOOL: IARC, IN JUNE 1987, CLASSIFIED FIBER GLASS  WOOL AS POSS
    CANCER (FED REG INFO)
Federal Regulatory Information:SARA REG INFO: CAUSING AGENT TO HUMANS
    (GROUP 2B). THIS CLASSIFICATION WAS BASED ON COMBINED EVALUATION OF
    PUBLISHED HUMAN & ANIMAL STUDIES. HUMAN DATA INCLUDED LGE SCALE
    MORTALITY STUDIES OF U.S. & E UROPEAN FIBER GLASS WOOL FACTORY
    WORKERS. IARC CONCLUDED THAT HUMAN STUDIES DOES NOT PROVIDE
    SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE THAT FIBER GLASS WOOL CAUSED CANCER IN HUMANS.
    CLASSIFICATION OF FIBER GLASS WOOL AS PO SS CARCIN TO HUMANS WAS
    SUBSTANTIALLY BASED ON EXPT ANIMAL STUDIES IN WHICH THEY WERE
    EXPOSED TO WOO L GLASS FIBERS THRU NON-NATRL RTES, SUCH AS
    INJECTION/IMPLANTATION. IARC REGARDS IT PRUDENT TO TREAT MATL
    W/SUFFICIENT (STATE REG INFO)
State Regulatory Information:FED REG INFO: EVIDENCE OF CARCIN IN
    ANIMALS AS IF IT IS POSS CARCIN IN HUMANS. IN MAY 1997, ACGIH
    ADOPTED AN A3 CARCIN CLASSIFICATION OF SYNTHETIC VITREOUS
    FIBERS-GLASS WOOL INSULATION. CLASSIFICATION  IS RSLT OF A LENGTHY
    REVIEW PROCESS. ACGIH A3 CLASSIFICATION CONSIDERS GLASS WOOL TO BE
    CARCIN IN EXPT ANIMALS AT RELATIVELY HIGH DOSES, BY RTES OF ADMIN,
    AT SITES/BY MECHANISMS THAT IT DOES NOT CONS IDER RELEVANT TO
    WORKER EXPOS. IT ALSO REVIEWED AVAIL EPIDEMIOLOGICAL STUDIES &
    CONCLUDED THAT THEY  DO NOT CONFIRM INCRD RISK OF CANCER IN EXPOSED
    HUMANS. OVERALL ACGIH FOUND THAT AVAIL MED/SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE
    SUGGESTS (EFTS OF OVEREXP)
