First Aid and Protective Equipment

The following paragraphs provide general first-aid procedures and recommendations for protective equipment to minimize the risks from material exposure. If professional medical attention is necessary, take the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for the exact material involved to the attending physician.

Skin Contact

You may choose to wear food-safe gloves while finishing parts to prevent the parts from becoming sticky from your skin's moisture.

Eye Contact

Small amounts of powder clouding may escape the Work Area of the Finishing Station. Safety glasses should be worn to prevent powder from entering the eyes. If powder comes in contact with the eye, flush immediately with large amounts of warm water. If eyes continue to be irritated after washing, get medical attention. Eye-wash facilities and a first-aid kit should be readily available and close to the Finishing Station.

Contact Lenses

If powder enters the eye when contact lenses are worn, flush the eye with water immediately. Verify that flushing has removed the contact lens from the eye. Discard contact lenses that come into contact with powder.

Fume Inhalation

The Finishing Station does not emit offensive odors during idle times or operation.

Ingestion

Do not ingest waste materials that are collected in the Finishing Station. If ingested, and a negative reaction occurs, seek medical attention and bring a copy of the exact powder's SDS to the attending physician.
