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: No hazards known to company.
 EYES: No hazards known to company.

         Delayed Hazards

 
 Limestone 1317-65-3 
Can cause lung damage. Pre-existing respiratory disorders may be
 aggravated by exposure.
 -- See Footnote C.

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.

 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.
 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

 Will not burn unless water has evaporated. Dried material may
 burn.
 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.

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

 
 No special protection necessary.

8.3 Exposure Guidelines

 
 Limestone 1317-65-3 
ACGIH TLV: 10 mg/m TWA, inhalable particulate
 OSHA PEL: 5 mg/m TWA, respirable particulates; 15 mg/m TWA
 total dust
 Quartz (SiO2) 14808-60-7 
ACGIH TLV: 0.05 mg/m TWA, respirable fraction, A2 - See Appendix A
 OSHA PEL: 10/(%SiO2 + 2) mg/m TWA, respirable dust;
 30/(%SiO2 + 2) mg/m TWA, total dust
 REMANDED PEL: 0.1 mg/m TWA, respirable dust
 OSHA 1989 PEL remanded, but in effect in some states
 OTHER: NIOSH has recommended a permissible exposure limit of 50 micrograms
 respirable free silica per cubic meter of air (0.05 mg/m) averaged
 over a workshift of up to 10 hours per day, 40 hours per week. NIOSH
 publications, including the NIOSH Criteria Document for Crystalline
 Silica, should be consulted for more detailed information.
