Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings:
A natural chemical reaction during hydration develops sufficient heat to cause severe burns in the event of contact with skin. These burns may possibly result in permanent injury. Do not allow product to harden around any body part or allow continuous, prolonged contact with skin.


Acute Health Effects:
From MSDS:
Hazards Identification
A natural chemical reaction during hydration develops sufficient heat to cause severe burns in the event of contact with skin. These burns may possibly result in permanent injury. Do not allow product to harden around any body part or allow continuous, prolonged contact with skin.
Likely Routes of Exposure: Skin contact, eye contact, inhalation, and ingestion..
Potential Health Hazards
Eye contact: Irritating to eyes. May cause burns in the presence of moisture.
Skin: May cause skin irritation. May cause burns in the presence of moisture.
Ingestion: May be harmful if swallowed. May cause stomach distress, nausea or vomiting.
Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation.
Signs and Symptoms: Symptoms may include discomfort or pain, excess blinking and tear production, with possible redness and swelling. Skin contact during hydration may slowly develop sufficient heat that may cause severe burns possibly resulting in permanent injury. Do not allow product to harden around any body part or allow continuous, prolonged contact with skin. Handling can cause dry skin.
Medical Conditions Aggravated By Exposure: Because of its irritating properties, dust may aggravate preexisting skin, eye, and respiratory conditions.



Chronic Health Effects:
From MSDS:
Prolonged or repeated contact may dry skin and cause irritation.

Carcinogenicity:
Respirable crystalline silica in the form of quartz or cristobalite from occupational sources is listed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and National Toxicology Program (NTP) as a lung carcinogen. Prolonged exposure to respirable crystalline silica has been known to cause silicosis, a lung disease, which may be disabling. While there may be a factor of individual susceptibility to a given exposure to respirable silica dust, the risk of contracting silicosis and the severity of the disease is clearly related to the amount of dust exposure and the length of time (usually years) of exposure.



First Aid:
Eye Contact: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water. If easy to do, remove contact lenses, if worn.
Skin Contact: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Call a physician if irritation develops and persists.
Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Ingestion: If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
General Advice: In case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical advice immediately (show the label or MSDS where possible).
Note to Physicians: Symptoms may not appear immediately.
