Stainless Steel Wire Material Safety Data Sheet

Part 1: Product Identification  
This MSDS applies to all grades of stainless steels provided in the woven form by Screen Technology Group, Inc.

Part 2: Hazardous Ingredients  
The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) publishes Permissible Exposure Limits (PEL) and the American Chemical Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) publishes Threshold Limit Values (TLV) for stainless steels.  The values listed below are applicable to major component elements.  These element may appear in various combination in any particular grade of stainless steel.

Part 3: Physical Data  
Melting Point:  2500-2800 Degrees F
Density:  0.28 lb/cu. In.
Flash Point:  N/A
Boiling Point:  N/A
Solubility in Water  INSOLUBLE
Vapor Pressure:  N/A
Vapor Density:  N/A
Evaporation:  N/A
% Volatiles by Volume:  N/A
Appearance and Odor:  Solid, Odorless Metal
Part 4: Fire and Explosion Data  
Stainless steel products in the form shipped are not considered combustible.  During processing (cutting, grinding, welding, etc.), the generation of dust in high concentration may present fire and explosion hazards.

Part 5: Reactivity Data  


 Insoluble in water and alkalis, corrodes in acids and certain salts

Hazardous Decomposition Products:

 Metal Fumes

Part 6: Health Hazards Information
Adequate ventilation is required when welding, cutting, grinding, or burning this product. Dust/fume respirators are required if the fume levels exceed TLV values.

Part 7: Emergency and First Aid Procedures
Inhalation: Seek medical attention if necessary
Skin: If irritation develops, remove contaminated clothing immediately and wash contaminated skin with soap and water. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.
Eyes: If eyes become irritated from dust or fumes wash with large quantities of water.  Seek medical attention when necessary.
Ingestion: Seek medical attention when necessary.
Part 8: Spill or Lead Procedures
Spills   Not Applicable
Waste Disposal Solids- Recycle as scrap
Dusts- Dispose of dust according to local, state, and federal regulations

Part 9: Special Protection Information
No toxic effects are expected from the alloy in the inert solid form. Excessive inhalation of fumes or dusts from burning, welding, grinding, and cutting can produce and acute reaction known as metal fume fever.  Nickel and chromium must be considered possible carcinogens under OSHA 29CFR1910.1200. However, studies of workers melting or working alloys containing these elements have been found to have no increased risk of cancer.

Part 10: Additional Information and Precautions
  • Wire supplied by STGI is free of the following substances: Hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs), and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs).
  • Maintain exposure levels below TLV/PEL using the proper ventilation and safety equipment.
  • This MSDS shall be used in conjunction with the chemical analysis as supplied by the rod mill
  • Information herein was obtained from sources that are believed to be authoritative and valid. However, no warranty, expressed or implied, can be made.
