Probably pieces of the cam chain guides. Those guides are made of injection molded black plastic. Something caused them to chunk apart, maybe the chain, maybe age or motor operating temp. Hard to tell why it happened, but I'll bet that's what it is.

What do you mean by blow? What part of your engine is bad? Are the filings plastic? Tell us more about the condition of your motor first.
