MATERIAL SAFETY LO‚ÄčOKUP

The following materials are known to produce hazardous decomposition products.
Exercise extreme caution when handling unknown materials.

Neoprene  (Polychloroprene)

RATING: DANGEROUS

Hazardous decomposition products:  Hydrogen chloride, Carbon monoxide, Organic acids, Aldehydes, Alcohols

Acute inhalation of Hydrogen chloride exposure may cause eye, nose, and respiratory tract irritation and inflammation and pulmonary edema in humans. Hydrogen chloride may react explosively with alcohols, hydrogen cyanide, metal acetylides and other materials. Hydrogen chloride will attack many metals such as cooper, brass and zinc releasing explosive hydrogen gas. Hydrogen chloride rapidly corrodes steel. Hydrogen chloride when exposed to water or moisture results in hydrochloric and hypochlorous acids which cause rapid oxidization of many metals and can be fatal when generated by combining hydrogen chloride and moisture in the lungs.
