3.2 Potential Health Effects


         Immediate Hazards

     INGESTION:   No hazards known to company.
     INHALATION:  Not expected to be harmful under normal conditions of
                  use.  However, if allowed to become airborne, may cause
                  irritation of nose, throat and lungs.
     SKIN:        May cause irritation on prolonged or repeated contact.
     EYES:        May cause irritation on prolonged or repeated contact.

         Delayed Hazards

     Limestone      1317-65-3     
     Can cause lung damage.  Pre-existing respiratory disorders may be
     aggravated by exposure.
     -- See Footnote C.
     Kaolin      1332-58-7     
     Chronic inhalation has resulted in benign pneumoconiosis.
     Pre-existing respiratory disorders may be aggravated by exposure.
     -- See Footnote C.
     Carbon Black      1333-86-4     
     POSSIBLE CANCER HAZARD.  May cause cancer based on animal data.  This
     material has been classified by IARC as an animal carcinogen (Group
     2B).  This material is not listed by NTP nor regulated by OSHA as a
     Chronic inflammation, lung fibrosis and lung tumors have been observed
     in some rats exposed for long periods of time to excessive
     concentrations of carbon black and several other insoluble fine dust
     particles which overwhelm the lung clearance mechanisms.  Tumors have
     not been observed in other animal species similarly tested.  Studies
     in both the carbon black production industry and some user industries
     suggest that there is inadequate evidence that carbon black causes
     cancer in humans.
     Quartz (SiO2)     14808-60-7     
     CANCER HAZARD.  Can cause cancer.  Use of this product may
     generate silica dust (which may be invisible).  Inhaled silica has
     been classified by IARC as a human carcinogen.
     Footnote C:  As of the date of issuance of this document, this
     material has not been listed by NTP, classified by IARC nor regulated
     by OSHA as a carcinogen.

4. First Aid Measures

     INGESTION:   If accidentally swallowed, dilute by drinking large
                  quantities of water.  Immediately contact poison control
                  center or hospital emergency room for any other
                  additional treatment directions.
     INHALATION:  Remove to fresh air.
     SKIN:         In case of irritation, flush with water.
     EYES:        Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water.  Call
                  a physician if irritation persists.

5. Fire Fighting Measures

     Autoignition Temperature            Not available
     Upper/Lower Flammable Limits        Not applicable
     Up/Lower Explosive Limits, % by Vol Not applicable

     In case of fire, water should be used to keep fire-exposed
     containers cool.

6. Accidental Release Measures

     Sweep (scoop) up and remove to a chemical disposal area.  Prevent
     entry into natural bodies of water.

7. Handling and Storage


7.1 Handling

     Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety
     practices.  These practices include avoiding unnecessary exposure and
     removal of the material from eyes, skin and clothing.
     Wash thoroughly after handling.  Always use appropriate Personal
     Protective Equipment (PPE).
     INHALATION:  Avoid prolonged or repeated breathing of vapor.
     SKIN:  Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin and clothing.
     EYES:  Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with eyes.

7.2 Storage

     Keep from freezing.
     Store in a cool, dry place.
     Keep containers tightly closed.

8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection


8.1 Exposure Controls

     If airborne contaminants are generated when the material is heated or
     handled, sufficient ventilation in volume and air flow patterns should
     be provided to keep air contaminant concentration levels below
     acceptable criteria.

8.2 Personal Protection

     Where air contaminants can exceed acceptable criteria, use NIOSH/MSHA
     approved respiratory protection equipment.  Respirators should be
     selected based on the form and concentration of contaminants in air
     in accordance with OSHA laws and regulations or other applicable
     standards or guidelines, including ANSI standards regarding
     respiratory protection.  Use goggles if contact is likely.  Wear
     impervious gloves as required to prevent skin contact.
