3: Hazards Identification Potential Acute Health Effects:
hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact (irritant), of
ingestion, of inhalation. Hazardous in case of skin contact (corrosive), of eye
contact (corrosive). Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (permeator). The
amount of tissue damage depends on length of contact. Eye contact can result in
corneal damage or blindness. Skin contact can produce inflammation and
blistering. Inhalation of dust will produce irritation to gastro-intestinal or
respiratory tract, characterized by burning, sneezing and coughing. Severe
over-exposure can produce lung damage, choking, unconsciousness or death.
Prolonged exposure may result in skin burns and ulcerations. Over-exposure by
inhalation may cause respiratory irritation.
of the eye is characterized by redness, watering, and itching. Skin inflammation
is characterized by itching,
scaling, reddening, or, occasionally, blistering.
Chronic Health Effects:
EFFECTS: Not available. MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: Not available. TERATOGENIC EFFECTS:
Not available. DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Not available. Repeated exposure of the
eyes to a low level of dust can produce eye irritation. Repeated skin exposure
can produce local skin destruction, or dermatitis. Repeated inhalation of dust
can produce varying degree of respiratory irritation or lung damage.
4: First Aid Measures Eye Contact:
for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes
with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Cold water may be used. Get
medical attention immediately.
Contact: In case of
contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes
while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Cover the irritated skin with an
