SECTION 3. Hazards Identification
SAND CLEAR

Emergency Overview
No data available.
Route(s) of Entry: Inhalation? Yes , Skin? Yes , Eyes? Yes , Ingestion? Yes
Potential Health Effects (Acute and Chronic)
No data available.
Carcinogenicity: NTP? N.A. , IARC Monographs? N.A. , OSHA Regulated? N.A.
Carcinogenicity/Other Information
No data available.
Signs and Symptoms Of Exposure
May cause mechanical eye irritation unless rinsed immediately with water. Single prolonged skin exposure (hours) causes no effect. Repeated prolonged exposures may or may not cause skin irritation. Prolonged or repeated expossure may result in respiratory sensitization in some individuals. Amounts which may be swallowed as a result of industrial handling are not likely to cause injury.

Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated By Exposure
No data available.

SECTION 4. First Aid Measures
SAND CLEAR

Emergency and First Aid Procedures
EYE CONTACT: Flush eye with water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists.

Note to Physician
No data available.

SECTION 5. Fire Fighting Measures
SAND CLEAR

Flash Pt: N.A. Method Used: No data.
Explosive Limits: LEL: No data. UEL: No data.
Autoignition Pt: N.A. Extinguishing Media
Foam, carbon dioxide, and dry chemical

Fire Fighting Instructions
Avoid dispersion of dust in air to reduce potential explosion hazard. Containers can build up pressure if exposed to heat (fire). Cool fire exposed containers with water.

Flammable Properties and Hazards
Combustible dust (class ST2). K = 196 bar m/s Pmax = 12.5 bar

Hazardous Combustion Products
No data available.

SECTION 6. Accidental Release Measures
SAND CLEAR

Steps To Be Taken In Case Material Is Released Or Spilled
Vacuum or sweep up material and place in disposal container. The very fine particles can cause a fire or explosion, eliminate all ignition sources. (Steam or air blowing are not to be used for clean up purposes.)


SECTION 7. Handling and Storage
SAND CLEAR

Hazard Label Information:
High temperatures.  
Mechanical shock.  Store in cool, dry area
Precautions To Be Taken in Handling
Avoid breathing dust. Do not use near fire, sparks or flame. Store away from heat, sparks & flames. Store upright in cool, dry place.

Precautions To Be Taken in Storing
No data available.
Other Precautions
Exposure to concentrations of visible dust require the use of an air purifying respirator approved by NIOSH/MSHA for dusts. Restiratory protection is required for cleanup or maintenance operations where visible dust levels may be encountered.


SECTION 8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
SAND CLEAR

Respiratory Equipment (Specify Type)
Atmospheric levels should be maintained below the exposure guideline. When respiratory protection is required for certain operations, use a NIOSH/MSHA respirator approved for dusts.

Eye Protection
Safety glasses

Protective Gloves
Not needed

Other Protective Clothing
Protective clothing not needed for normal operation.

Engineering Controls (Ventilation etc.)
Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control airborne levels.

Work/Hygienic/Maintenance Practices
Wash hands before eating, smoking, or using restroom.
