    Does anyone have any info on how harmful the "dust" produced from kingspan type insulation is.
    When cutting sheets the particles get on my chest like no other type of dust,anyone else noticed this?

    i always wear a mask and boiler suit when cutting kingspan or celotex. seems to get my throat more than fibre glass.

    I'm sure the website will have 'hazard' information.

    The dust does seem to be very light, and blows around a lot. Definitely wear a mask :(

    There's some COSHH stuff here (it's a PDF file). ......and a shorter (non PDF) version here

    It always seems worse than the mfrs make out though. Worked with a guy a couple of years back who was off work for three days after getting some behind his contact lenses.
