VI. Health Hazard Information

Primary Routes of Exposure: Inhalation.

Signs and Symptoms of Overexposure: Overexposure is only possible if the material is ground into finely divided particles and suspended in air. Under these conditions, upper respiratory congestion, dyspnea, chest pain, cough, and decreased vital capacity or progressive fibrosis may result.

Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure
: : Prolonged or repeated exposure may aggravate pre-existing respiratory or cardiovascular system conditions.

Listing as a Carcinogen: This material is not listed as a carcinogen by the NTP, IARC, or OSHA. This material contains silicon dioxide, which is listed as a carcinogen by the NTP, IARC, and OSHA. Signs and symptoms described above are based on silicon dioxide exposure.

VII. Emergency First Aid Procedures

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Seek medical attention, if necessary.

Ingestion: Consult physician immediately.

Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes for 15 minutes with large amounts of water, occasionally lifting upper and lower eyelids. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.

Skin Contact: Wash the affected area with soap and water. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.

VIII. Control Measures

Engineering Controls: General ventilation recommended under normal conditions of use. If active dust and/or fume generation occurs, local ventilation is recommended.

Work/Hygiene Practices: Avoid inhalation of dusts and/or fumes. If necessary, wear NIOSH/MSHA approved respiratory protection for dusts, mists, or fumes.

Personal Protective Equipment:

Respiratory Protection: If necessary, wear NIOSH/MSHA approved respiratory protection for dusts, mists, and fumes.
Eye/Face Protection: Recommended.
Skin Protection: Recommended to prevent skin irritation.

IX. Storage and Disposal Information
Spill or Leak Procedures: Clean up spilled material into a closed container using a high efficiency vacuum. Avoid dust generation.

Disposal Methods: Dispose of in accordance with local, state, or federal regulations.

Handling and Storage Precautions: Store in a cool, dry location.
