First Aid Measures
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not, breathing, give artificial
respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a
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.
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15
minutes. Lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Get medical
Fire Fighting Measures
Not considered to be a fire hazard.
Not considered to be an explosion hazard.
Fire Extinguishing Media:
Use any means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire.
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
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.
8.Exposure Control/Personal Protection
Airborne Exposure Limits.
-OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL);
15mg/m3 total dust, 5mg/m3 respirable fraction for nuisance dust;
-ACGITI Threshold Limit Value (TLV);
10mg/m3 total dust containing no asbestos and <1% crystalline
silica for Particulates Not Otherwise Classified (PNOC).
A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep
employee exposures below the Airborne Exposure Limits. Local
exhaust ventilation is generally pretaned 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)
If the exposure limit is exceeded and engineering controls are not
feasible, a half face-piece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95
or better filter) may be worn for up to ten times the exposure
limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate
regulatory agency or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest. A
full-face piece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filters)
may be worn up to 50 times the exposure limit, or the maximum use
concentration specified consignments of instances where the
exposure levels are not known, use a full-face piece
positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air-purifying
respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Use chemical safely goggles. Maintain eye wash fountain and
quick-drench facilities in work area.
