Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN! DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY. Keep containers away from excessive heat and freezing. Use in well ventilated area. Provide fresh air such that chemical odors cannot be detected during use and while drying. Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Do not breathe dust. Prevent build up of dust by providing fresh air such that dust cannot be detected during use of this product or while sanding this product. Removal of this product after use will result in the generation of dust. If dry-sanded, exposure to dust may result in the build-up of material in eyes, ears, nose, and mouth which may cause irritation. While dry sanding, use of a NIOSH-approved dust mask is recommended.Keep containers tightly closed. Do not store at temperatures above 120 degrees F. Store containers away from excessive heat and freezing. Store away from caustics and oxidizers.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Hazards IdentificationEmergency Overview: A white to off-white powder product with a little or no odor. WARNING! May cause eye, skin, nose, throat and respiratory tract irritation. Removal of this product after use or by dry sanding will generate dust and exposure to this dust may be irritating to the eyes, ears, nose and mouth. Avoid skin and eye contact. May cause burns. If dry -sanded, exposure to dust may result in build-up of material in eyes, ears, nose, and mouth.Primary Routes Of Entry: Skin Contact, Inhalation, Eye Contact.Eye Contact: May cause eye irritation.Skin Contact: May cause skin irritation. May cause dry skin. May develop enough heat to cause burns if a large mass such as a cast of hand or arm, is kept in contact with skin while hardening.Inhalation: Inhalation of dust may cause lung damage or other adverse pulmonary and respiratory effects.Ingestion: Ingestion may result in obstruction when material hardens. Irritating to mouth, throat and stomach.Medical Conditions which May be Aggravated by Exposure: If dry sanded, asthma and asthma-like conditions may worsen from prolonged or repeated exposure to dust.
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 (Group A2). Inhalation of dust may result in pulmonary and respiratory damages. 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: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.Skin Contact: Wash off immediately soap and plenty of water.Inhalation: If you experience difficulty in breathing, leave the area to obtain fresh air. If continued difficulty is experienced, get medical attention immediately.Ingestion: If swallowed, DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Get medical attention immediately.
