Remove fumes released by decomposition with local exhaust, if
film over metal or rollers will produce a surface static charge
on the film. Consider processing design and procedures that will
reduce or dissipate this charge, and eliminate the possibility
of unwanted electrical discharge to people, equipment, and materials.
