Warnings:
Wear protective clothing and equipment. Keep out of reach of children.

Acute Health Effects:
From MSDS:
Hazards Identification
Potential Health Hazards
Eye Contact: Exposure to airborne dust may cause immediate or delayed irritation or inflammation. Eye contact by larger amount of dry powder or splashes of wet masonry cement may cause effects ranging from moderate eye irritation to chemical burns and blindness. Such exposure needs immediate medical attention
Skin Contact: Direct contact with dust may cause irritation by mechanical abrasion. Dry masonry cement contacting wet skin or exposure to mist or wet masonry cement may cause more severe skin effects including thickening, cracking, or fissuring of the skin. Prolonged exposure to wet masonry can cause severe skin damage in the form of caustic chemical burn
Skin Absorption: Not expected to be a significant exposure route.
Ingestion: Expected to be practically non-toxic. Ingestion of large amounts may cause gastrointestinal irritation and blockage.
Inhalation: Dusts may irritate the nose, throat, and respiratory tract by mechanical abrasion. Coughing, sneezing, and shortness of breath may occur following exposures in excess of appropriate exposure limits. Use of natural sand and gravel for construction purposes is not believed to cause additional acute toxic effects. However, repeated overexposure to very high levels of respirable crystalline silica (quartz, cristobalite, tridymite) for periods as short as six months have caused acute silicosis. Acute silicosis is a rapidly progressive, incurable lung disease that is typically fatal. Symptoms include (but are not limited to); shortness of breath, cough, fever, weight loss, and chest pain.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: Excessive dust exposure may aggravate any existing respiratory disorders or diseases. Possible complications of allergies resulting in irritation to skin, eyes and respiratory passage may occur from excessive exposure to dusts.




Chronic Health Effects:
From MSDS:
Excessive exposure to particulates (dust) over an extended period of time may result in the development of silicosis and other pulmonary diseases

Carcinogenicity:
IARC has classified respirable crystalline silica (quartz) a known carcinogen in humans.


First Aid:
Eye contact: Immediately flush eye(s) with plenty of clean water for at least 15 minutes, while holding the eyelid(s) open. Occasionally lift the eyelid(s) to ensure thorough rinsing. Beyond flushing, do not attempt to remove material from the eye(s). Contact a physician if irritation persists or later develops.
Skin contact: Wash with soap and water. Contact a physician if irritation persists or later develops.
Ingestion: If person is conscious, give large quantity of water and induce vomiting; however, never attempt to make an unconscious person drink or vomit. Get immediate medical attention.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Dust in throat and nasal passages should clear spontaneously. Contact a physician if irritation persists or later develops.

MSDS Date: 2006-12-22
