Standard Practice for Handling Densified Articles of Silicon Nitride Reinforced with Silicon Carbide Whiskers
|Publication Date:||1 January 1991|
|ICS Code (Salts):||71.060.50|
1.1 This practice describes recommended procedures for the safe handling of densified articles made from nonfibrous silicon nitride reinforced with silicon carbide whiskers.
1.2 The information in this practice is intended for a material safety data sheet (MSDS) for densified articles of silicon nitride reinforced with silicon carbide whiskers.
1.3 This MSDS does not apply to products with a final density such that, during abrasion or other conditions of handling or use, SiC whiskers are released in excess of the limits of this practice.
1.4 Other materials may be included in the final product (for example, sintering aids); information specific to these additional materials should be included in each manufacturer's MSDS.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard and precaution statements, see Sections 4,6,8, and 9.
