Birds sometimes drop dead when they remain in a room where a nonstick pan is heated. Fumes and particles released by heated nonstick coatings cause birds' lungs to hemorrhage and fill with fluid. Teflon fumes can also sicken humans with "polymer fume fever". The symptoms are easily confused with those from the flu. DuPont warns of the risks to birds and humans on the company's website, attributing the problem to accidentally overheating cookware. DuPont also maintains that the fumes cause no lasting health effects.
i'd bet we get a lot more exposure from eating dinner, but i'd bet 10 bucks that you won't go sniffing the body tube to find out!Originally posted by shockwaveriderz
By the time the rocket hit the ground from altitude, any fumes that may have been generated from ejection charge heat and the teflon streamer will have been dissipated........
I just tested some. It didn't burn, but it did warp and curl. I gave it two seconds directly in a butane flame, which probably was more total heat than it'd get from an ejection charge. I could pull most of the curling back out, but it didn't go back to flat.
