Nonpolymer Nanocomposite Process Equiment Cleanup Controls


Post operation clean-up of nonpolymer nanocomposite process equipment


  • Damp laboratory wipes shall be used to minimize particulate generation
  • Latex or nitrile clean room gloves

. * Contaminated gloves must be disposed of in the same closed receptacle

  • Laboratory wipes shall be disposed of in closed receptacles that are in a ventilated enclosure
  • If the nanocomposites were processed at high temperatures, more conservative controls should be employed in case nanoparticles were freed in the process. These should include:
  • Respiratory PPE
  • Gloves
  • Goggles or glasses

Alternatively, Control Banding may be employed when more is known about material reactivity, exposure duration and material state.
