Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Use in a well ventilated area. Prevent build up of dust by providing fresh air such that dust cannot be detected during use and while any sanding.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Hazards IdentificationEmergency Overview: WARNING! Injurious to eyes. Avoid skin and eye contact. Causes skin irritation. Exposure to dust may result in build-up of material in eyes, ears, nose, and mouth which may cause irritation..Primary Routes Of Entry: Skin Contact, Inhalation.Eye contact: May cause eye irritation.Skin contact: Wet cement can dry skin and cause alkali burns.Inhalation: Exposure to dust may cause irritation to nose, throat, and respiratory system.Ingestion: Irritating to mouth, throat and stomach.Medical Conditions which May be Aggravated by Exposure: Asthma and asthma-like conditions may worsen from prolonged and repeated exposure.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:No information provided.
Carcinogenicity: The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC)has determined that crystalline silica in the form of quartz or cristobalite that is inhaled from occupational sources is carcinogenic to humans (Group 1– carcinogenic to humans). Refer to IARC Monograph 68, Silica, Some Silicates and Organic Fibres (published in June 1997) in conjunction with the use of these materials. The National Toxicology Program (NTP) classifies respirable crystalline silica as known to be a human carcinogen. Refer to the 9th Report on Carcinogens (2000). The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) classifies crystalline silica, quartz, as a suspected human carcinogen (A2). Breathing dust containing respirable crystalline silica may not cause noticeable injury or illness even though permanent lung damage may be occurring. Inhalation of dust may have the following serious chronic health effects: Excessive inhalation of respirable dust can cause pneumoconiosis, a respiratory disease, which can result in delayed, progressive, disabling and sometimes fatal lung injury. Symptoms include cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, non-specific chest illness and reduced pulmonary function. Smoking exacerbates this disease. Individuals with pneumoconiosis are predisposed to develop tuberculosis. There is some evidence that breathing respirable crystalline silica or the disease silicosis is associated with an increased incidence of significant disease endpoints such as scleroderma (an immune system disorder manifested by fibrosis of the lungs, skin and other internal organs) and kidney disease.
First Aid: Eye contact: Flush with large quantities of water until irritation subsides. Contact a physician.Skin contact: Wash with soap and water. If irritation of skin persists, contact a physician.Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Contact a physician immediately.Ingestion: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Contact a physician or Regional Poison Control Center immediately.
