Safety Data Sheet

Trade name:    Polyester (PES) Cut Flock

1.       Identification of substance/preparation and company/undertaking

          Product name:
Polyester (PET) Precision Cut Flock dtex 1 - 22, 
cut lengths 0.3 - 3 mm, raw white or dyed


          Producer and supplier:
SwissFlock Inc.
CH 6021 Emmenbrücke (Switzerland)
Tel. +41 41 2686363     Fax: +41 41 2686373



2.       Composition / information on ingredients

          Chemical nature: 
Polyester (PET), Poly (ethylene-terephthalate)
CAS Nr. 25038-59-9


          Physical nature:

          Cut fibres with diameters of 10 mm (1 dtex) to 45 mm (22 dtex) and mean length of 0.3 to 3.0 mm. Raw white, spundyed or bath dyed.

          Preparation on the fibre: inorganic and organic chemicals (total amount max. 0.5 % of weight) which are indispensable for Flock quality intended for electrostatic flocking.

          Flock black spundyed contains about 2.5 % of black pigment = Carbon Black (CI 77266)



3.       Hazards identification

          To the best of our knowledge, Polyester flock products have not been associated with negative effects on humans if used in accordance with good industrial hygiene practice and any legal requirements.

          Fine dust fibres: with the above mentioned dimensions, all Cut Flock Products of SwissFlock Inc. are above the dimensions of „Fine Dust Fibers“ which have been defined as follows *) :

          Diameter < 3 mm, length 5 - 100 mm, proportion length : diameter > 3 : 1

          *) Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG: MAK und BAT Werte. Verlag VCH Weinheim D 1993, p. 92 f.



4.       First-aid measures

          Inhalation:                                  Not specifically concerned (s. pt 3)

          Skin contact:                              Not specifically concerned

          In case of fire, the molten product may cause burns. Rinse with plenty of water. Do not attempt to remove  clothes (danger of adherence to the skin). Call for a physician.

          Eye contact:                               Not specifically concerned

          Ingestion:                                   Not specifically concerned



5.       Fire-fighting measures

          Fire extinguishing agents:
All usual extinguishing media may be used

          Restrictions:                               No restrictions


          Specific information for fire-fight:  Use autonomous respirators to fight fire indoor or in poorly ventilated areas. Do not use water as extinguishing agent in the presence of uninterrupted electrical installations. Hazardous decomposition products: Depending on temperature and oxygen availability, combustion off-gases contain variable quantities of toxic substances ( carbon monoxide, acetaldehyde, various organic compounds) which must not be inhaled.



6.       Accidental release measures

          Accidental dispersion/spill:
Collect material for controlled re-use or waste disposal. No special     safety risks or risks to the environment.



7.       Handling and storage

          Fire precautions:
Remove dust, fly and finish residues by ventilation and vacuum
cleaning, especially on heat setting operations. Keep away from            ignition sources. Beware of static electricity and discharges (s. point 9)


          Storage:                                     No special safety precautions

          Storage conditions:                     Consider technical advices referring to optimal processability



8.       Exposure controls and personal protection

          Components with occupational exposure limits:  none

          Industrial hygiene:
No special risks if handled in accordance with good industrial hygiene practice and any legal requirements.


          Personal protection:                    Dust mask, protecting goggles



9.       Physical and chemical properties:

          Appearance:                              Form:              short fibres

                                                           Colour:            raw white or dyed

          Odour:                                       none

          Melting range:                            [°C]:                250-260

          Flash point:                                [°C]:                350 - 400

          Ignition temperature:                   [°C]:                about 420

          Thermal decomposition:              [°C]:                starts at about 350

          Explosion limits: Cut Flock / air mixtures may be explosible within certain concentration limits and sufficiently high ignition energies (dust explosion class 1, Kst-value >0 to 200 bar*m*s-1). Electrostatic flocking installations with an electric discharge energy > 500 mJ show a lower explosion limit of > 125 g Flock / m3 of air. S. Journal „Flock“, Dec. 1983, p. 4 - 10


          Density:                                      [g/cm3]:            1.38 - 1.42

          Apparent density:                       [kg/m3]            80 - 200

          Vapor pressure:                          not applicable

          Solubility in water:                      Flock products are not water soluble



10.     Stability and reactivity

          Conditions to avoid:                                                      none under normal storage conditions

          Materials to avoid:                                                         none under normal storage conditions

          Hazardous decomposition products:                   none under normal storage conditions


          Combustion off-gases see point 5.
