 4. First-aid measures

 
InhalationMove victim to fresh air. Apply resuscitation if victim is not breathing - If trained personnel available administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
 
IngestionIf swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water to be taken slowly. If irritation develops or persists transport to hospital or doctor.
 
SkinIf dust falls onto the skin, remove any contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly with soap and water.
If irritation persists transport to hospital or doctor.
 
Eye contactIf dust enters the eyes, flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, ensuring eye lids are held open. If irritation develops or persists, immediately transport to hospital or doctor.
 
First Aid FacilitiesRecommended: Eye wash. Hand wash basin.
 
Advice to DoctorProduct contains a very high proportion of powdered crystalline silica (quartz), and a low proportion of a surfactant. If swallowed, vomiting should not have been induced because of the risk of aspiration of froth containing silica powder into the lungs. Risk of mechanical damage if in eyes. Treat symptomatically. Contact Poisons Information Centre.
 
Other InformationInhalation of dusts may represent a serious acute risk to persons with a compromised respiratory system. The harmful effects of breathing silica dusts may be enhanced by smoking.
 

 5. Fire-fighting measures

 
Suitable extinguishing mediaWater, or as for other chemicals present.
 
Unsuitable Extinguishing MediaM
 
Hazards from Combustion ProductsDecomposes on heating emitting soot, smoke and decomposition products.
 
Specific MethodsIn case of small fire/explosion use water. In case of major emergency use PPE: breathing apparatus and protective gloves.
 
Specific hazards arising from the chemicalThis material is not a combustible or flammable solid. However, under certain conditions this material, if sufficiently distributed in air and a suitable source of ignition is present, may cause a dust explosion.
 
Decomposition Temp.M
 
Precautions in connection with FireM
 

 6. Accidental release measures

 
Emergency ProceduresM
 
Spills & DisposalAvoid generating dusts. Wear suitable protective equipment. Ventilate area. If possible wet area down to prevent high dust levels. If available, use dustless methods, such as a HEPA vacuum and filter. Otherwise, use a non-sparking shovel and place into a suitably labeled container for later disposal. Do not dry sweep.
 

 7. Handling and storage

 
Precautions for Safe HandlingDo not generate dusts.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Keep away from acids.
 
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilitiesStore in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. Store away from sources of heat or ignition. Store away from oxidizing agents. Keep containers closed, when not using the product. Store in original packages as approved by manufacturer.
 
Storage RegulationsM
 

 8. Exposure controls/personal protection

 
Occupational exposure limit values     Name STEL (mgm3) STEL (ppm) TWA (mgm3) TWA (ppm) FootNote
Silica (crystalline-quartz)0.2
 
Biological Limit ValuesM
 
Appropriate engineering controlsGood industrial hygiene practice requires that employee exposure be maintained below the recommended TLV/TWA. This is preferably achieved through the provision of adequate ventilation where necessary.
Where dust cannot be controlled in this way, personal respiratory protection should be employed.
 
Respiratory ProtectionM
 
Eye ProtectionM
 
Hand ProtectionM
 
Personal Protective EquipmentAvoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not breathe dust. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-
Chemical goggles
Gloves, rubber or plastic.
Full face respirator with dust filters fitted or suitable dust mask
Always maintain a high level of personal hygiene when using cleaning chemicals. That is wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.

Toxicology InformationM
 
Acute Toxicity - InhalationSilica, crystalline quartz 300 ìg/m³/10 years, human - liver changes, death.
Silica, crystalline quartz 16 million particles per cubic foot/8 hours/17.9 years, human - fibrosis, focal (pneumoconiosis), cough, shortness of breath/laboured breathing.
 
IngestionMay cause irritation to mouth, throat and stomach with effects including mucous build up, irritation to the tongue and lips and pains in the stomach, which may lead to nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.
 
InhalationThis product is not expected to be a dust risk under normal use. It may become a dust risk if heated, or allowed to dry out. Inhalation of dusts may cause coughing, irritation of the throat and difficulty breathing. The harmful effects may be enhanced by smoking.
Overwhelming inhalation exposure to silica dust has cause acute pneumoconiosis (fibrosis and scarring of the lungs).
Aspiration of silica-containing froth into the lungs during swallowing or vomiting may cause serious injury to lung tissues.

Aspiration HazardM
 
Chronic EffectsExposure to respirable crystalline quartz may cause delayed (chronic) lung disease known as silicosis; Acute or rapidly developing silicosis may occur in a period of time in heavy exposure in certain occupations such as sandblasting, however, this can be minimized if
(a) Proper ventilation is employed and
(b) in the absence of ventilation a suitable respirator is used.
An (IARC) Working Group reported that there is sufficient evidence for the classification of crystalline silica as a Confirmed Human Carcinogen (Group I) (IARC, 1997,V.68).
