SECTION VI -- HEALTH HAZARD DATA
EYE CONTACT: Abrasive powders. May cause irritation and inflammation.
SKIN CONTACT: Abrasive powders. May cause irritation and inflammation
INHALATION: May cause respiratory tract irritation
INGESTION: May cause gastrointestinal discomfort including nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
CHRONIC HAZARD: None Known, not listed as a carcinogen by NTP or IARC. However, prolonged exposure to excessive quantities of minor constituent ingredients can result in scarring of the lungs or pleural thickening. Ceramic fiber constituents are milled down to low l/d ratios so they act as powders.
EXPOSOSURE LIMITS: TLV of 0.05mg/m for the chrome oxide content. Fiber limits: 2 fibers/cc TWA; 10 fibers/cc CL. Other ingredients: OSHA PEL range 20 mg/m & 20 MPPCF: ACGIH TLV range 2 to 10 mg/m.
FIRST AID PROCEDURES: If inhaled in large amounts, remove to fresh air. Get medical attention. Do not scrub exposed skin as abrasive nature will make situation worse. If irritation continues contact a physician. If ingested, do not induce vomiting, get medical attention if irritation persists. If eye contact, flush immediately with large amounts of water. Do not rub eyes. Open all areas to exposure from rinsing action of flush water. Get medical attention of irritation persists.
SECTION VII -- SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Use NIOSH approved powder respirator for powders under 0.5 microns where dusting occurs.
GLOVES: cloth gloves are adequate.
EVE PROTECTION: Chemical goggles and/or face shield
OTHER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Safety shower and eyewash fountain should be within direct access.
PERSONAL HYGIENE: Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Wash thoroughly after handling. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing.
