     Production  

    Royal Building Products is part of Westlake Chemical. We offer a unique manufacturing opportunity in our vertical integration from raw materials from our parent company Westlake Chemical through to manufacturing and on to distribution. The ingredients are dispersed, bound, and encapsulated within the polymer matrix of the profile and are not released in significant amounts under normal end-use conditions.

    Health Effects and Exposure Potential  

    The product, as supplied, does not cause health effects or have exposure potential; however, processing or heating the product may cause health concerns. Processing, such as sawing, sanding, and abrasive applications, may create dusts that have the potential to cause mechanical injury to the eye. If the product is heated to elevated temperatures, or if under fire conditions, thermal degradation of the polymer matrix may occur and result in the release of thermal decomposition products such as methyl methacrylate monomers and hydrogen chloride. Under certain conditions, methyl methacrylate monomer may cause skin, eye, and respiratory tract irritation, central nervous system depression, and skin and respiratory sensitization in susceptible individuals. Under certain conditions, hydrogen chloride may cause skin burns, eye damage and respiratory tract irritation.

    Environmental Effects  

    The product is expected to decompose very slowly in the natural environment.

    Safe Handling, Storage, and Disposal  

    The product, as supplied, does not cause adverse health effects or have exposure potential; rather, the hazards associated with handling and storing the product are physical in nature. If dusting occurs from handling or processing the product, dust accumulation and potential sources of ignition such as static discharges should be addressed by the user to prevent fire or explosion from suspended, finely divided particles.

    When stored, the product should be kept clear of walkways and floors to prevent tripping hazards. The product should be disposed of or recycled in accordance with applicable federal, state/provincial, and local regulations. It should not be disposed into sewers, onto the ground, or into any body of water.

    Fire and Explosion Hazards  

    The product, as supplied, is not a fire or explosion hazard. However, processing the product, such as sawing, sanding, and abrasive applications, may cause dust accumulation. Potential sources of ignition, such as static discharges, may cause fire or explosion from suspended, finely divided particles.

    Water, foam or dry chemical are appropriate extinguishing media. Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode due to potentially hazardous thermal decomposition products. In fire conditions, the product may produce irritating or toxic vapors including hydrochloric acid, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methyl methacrylate monomer, aldehydes, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, hydrocarbons and other potential toxics dependent on specific conditions.

    The product is a solid plastic profile in various colors, and it has no specific odor. The specific gravity, melting point, vapor density and percent volatiles are included in the Technical Data Sheets for the specific products. Water solubility is not applicable to this product.

    Regulatory Information  

    The product is classified as an article and is exempt from the Safety Data Sheet requirements of the United States’ Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard and the Canadian Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS).
