MRAT - 5.026 - Plastics: Hazards of Materials
MRATsProjects
All plastics (polymers) degrade at sufficiently high temperatures, producing fumes with various hazards. Those materials presenting hazards at lower temperatures are discussed here.The process itself may also be hazardous, eg drilling or machining, or may produce hazardous by-products, eg, dust.

MRAT - 2.013 - Flammable Substances: Non-Liquids
MRATsProjects
In any use of compliant materials (paper, dress and upholstery fabrics, etc) they may burn rapidly if accidentally ignited by a naked flame and the fumes and smoke produced, particularly from synthetic materials, may be an additional hazard.

MRAT - 5.004 - Adhesives: Solvent-Based, Cellulosics, Polymer Cements, Rubber Solution, Solvent-Welding Adhesives
MRATsProjects
The solvents are usually highly flammable (hydrocarbons, esters or ketones) but are sometimes non-flammable chlorinated hydrocarbons.Cements used with polymers such as ABS and polystyrene are often just mixtures of solvents that are drawn into the joint by capillary action.Solvent-welding plastic pipes.
