Thermo-Shield is an adhesive backed composite tape that can be used to wrap hoses or wires. Radiant and conductive heat can melt, or dry out, the rubber and plastic components in hoses and wiring, causing them to leak or short out. This wrap can protect these hoses and wires from that heat and extend their lifetime.

    Particular care should be taken when working with "used" material to minimize dust. If exposure limits are exceeded or if irritation is experienced, NIOSH approved respiratory protection should be worn.

    VII. Exposure Controls and Personal Protection

    Engineering Controls
    General ventilation and/or local exhaust ventilation should be utilized to maintain exposures below the Threshold Limit Value (TLV).
    Respiratory Protection:
    Use and approved disposable dust respirator designed for nuisance type dusts.
    Eye Protection:
    Safety glasses with side shields or chemical splash goggles must be worn to prevent eye contact. A good safety practice is to have an eyewash station readily available near the work area.
    Protective Clothing:
    Wear rubber gloves when handling this product. Personnel that are more susceptible to irritation from fibers or dusts should wear full-body coveralls.
