Potential Health Effects Information on the human health effects from exposure to this substance is limited.
Inhalation : Inhalation of dust may irritate the respiratory tract. May cause an allergic response.
Ingestion :No information found, but should be treated as a potential health hazard.
Skin Contact :Causes skin irritation. May cause allergic skin reaction.
Eye Contact :Causes irritation. May cause an allergic reaction.
Chronic Exposure :No information found.
Aggravation of Pre-existing Conditions: No information found.
SECTION 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician.
Ingestion:Induce vomiting immediately as directed by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention.
Skin Contact:Remove any contaminated clothing. Wash skin with soap or mild detergent and water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists. Wash clothing before re-use.
Eye Contact:Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention immediately.
SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Fire:As with most organic solids, fire is possible at elevated temperatures or by contact with an ignition source.
Explosion:Fine dust dispersed in air in sufficient concentrations, and in the presence of an ignition source is a potential dust explosion hazard.
Fire Extinguishing Media: Dry chemical, foam or carbon dioxide.
Special Information: In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.
SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Remove all sources of ignition. Ventilate area of leak or spill. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8. Spills: Clean up spills in a manner that does not disperse dust into the air. Use non-sparking tools and equipment. Reduce airborne dust and prevent scattering by moistening with water. Pick up spill for recovery or disposal and place in a closed container.
SECTION 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
Keep in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage. Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product.
SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
Airborne Exposure Limits:None established.
Ventilation System:A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved):For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95 or better filters) may be worn. If oil particles (e.g. lubricants, cutting fluids, glycerine, etc.) are present, use a NIOSH type R or P filter. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
WARNING:Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
Skin Protection:Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection:Use chemical safety goggles. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
