Inhalation : Move to dust free fresh air . Ifrespiratory distress develops , seek medical attention . Ingestion : No adverse effect expected . Rinse mouth out with water. Seek medical attention if significant quantities have been ingested.
SECTION 5 : FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES : Explosion Data: Not explosive.
Extinguishing Media : product will not burn . Flammability : Not flammable or combustible . Flash point : Not applicable .Auto Ignition : Not applicable.
SECTION 6 : ACCIDENTAL RELEASE Measures : spillage by vacuum cleaning or other means whereby dust creation is minimized . If dust levels shouhdexceed the occupational exposure standard , then personal protective equipment is required . personal precautions : Wear dust mask . safety gloves and goggles Environmental precautions : Do not allow the entering into drains , rivers, or lakes.
SECTION : 7 : HANDELING AND STORAGE : Handling : Silica is safe to handle slippery when wet. Us appropriate controls and ventilation to avoid creating accumulation dust . Avoid inhlation and repeated contacts with eyes or skin.
Storage : store in a dry covered area.
SECTION 8 : EXPOSURE CONTROL / PERSONAL PROTECTION : Ventilation: Use exhaust ventilation to keep airborne dust concentration below exposure limits . Additionally , local exhaust ventilation is recommended where dusts may be released. Respiratory protection : Use appropriate engineering controls to avoid dustoration or accumulation . Ensure all occupational exprosure limits are maintained (5 mg/m3 on TWA 8 hours for alveolar dust , and 10 mg /m3 on TWA 8 hours for total inhalatordust) . Wearapprovad respirator or dust mask in the event of dust creation. Skin protection : Us gloves to avoid skin irritation . Eye protection : eyewash should be available , but eye protection is not required unless physical working conditions demand it .
SECTION 9 : PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES : Physical State : Solid Odour and Apperance: Light colour ( grey , pink, yellow,green brown) granules or powder . Odorless PH: 8.1 to 10.5 Specific gravity 2.5 g/cc Bulk density 1.18 g/cc% soluble in water : Nil , melting point 14000 boiling point: Not applicable Freezing point : not applicable Vapour pressure : Not applicable Vapour pressure: Not applicable Vapour density : not applicableflash point: Not applicable / non – flammable product.
SECTION 10 : STABILITY AND REACTIVITY : Chemically stability : Stable.Compatibility with other substances : compatible with all substances . Hazardous decomposition / By product : No hazardous decomposition or by products expected conditions to avoid : None
SECTION 11 : TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION :Silicahas no determined acute toxic affects. Long-term exposure to moderate or high concentrations of.dust may affect nose and may affect nose and chest health . No toxicological effects are expected if respiratible dust concentrations are maintained below the occupathonal exposure standards . Repeated contact with skin and irritions . Repeatad eye contact may generate irritations . No toxicological effects are expected if personal protective equipment is worm . No adverse are effected when ingested.
Acute Healt Hazard : Eye contact may cause mechanical irritations if exposed to excessive amount of
Silica contact may aggravate existing dermatitis inhalation from prolonged and continuous exposure may aggravate existing asthmatic or respiratory conditions .
SECTION 12 : ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION: Environmental Statement :Silica has a low impact on environment Silica is persistent andnon – biodegradable but it is unlikelyto have any long – term adverse on the environment . mobility : solid non volatile , insoluble in water degradability : Non biodegradable. Persistent accumulation : No bioaccumulation or bio- magnificathion identified : Non-toxhc to aquatic living organisms and animals . Non – toxic to aquatic plants Non- toxicto soil organism . Non – toxic and anaerobic plant Non – toxic to aerobic and anaerobic living oranisms and animals .
SECTION 13 : DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS : Silicaandwaste from residue can be disposed as non – toxic and inactive materials in approved landfill sites in accordance with local regulations . contaminated packaginigcan be disposed in approved landfill sites in accordance with local regulations.
