Note to Physicians: N/A

Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures
Fire: Flash point: Does not burn
Explosion: Not considered an explosion hazard. The dust from this product is not expected to be an explosion hazard.
Extinguishing Media: Water spray, dry chemical, alcohol foam or carbon dioxide. Water spray may be used to keep fire exposed containers cool.
Special Precautions: In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full facepiece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.
NFPA Rating:    Health -    1    Flammability - 1        Reactivity - 0        Other - NA


Section 6: Accidental Release Measures
Ventilate area of leak or spill. Remove all sources of ignition. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8. Isolate hazard area. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Contain and recover solid when possible and place in a chemical waste container. Do not flush to sewer! US Regulations (CERCLA) require reporting spills and releases to soil, water and air in excess of reportable quantities. The toll free number for the US Coast Guard National Response Center is (800) 424-8802.

Section 7: Handling and Storage
Keep in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage. Isolate from any source of heat or ignition. Separate from incompatibles, combustibles, organic or other readily oxidizable materials. Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (liquid, vapors); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product.


Section 8: Exposure Control / Personal Protection
Exposure Guidelines:
Component    CAS #    OSHA PEL    ACGIH TLV    NIOSH TLV
Sand    14808-60-7    None established    0.025 mg/m3 Respirable Quartz    0.05 mg/m3 TWA
50 mg/m3 IDLH
Portland cement    65997-15-1    5 mg respirable dust/m3    10 mg respirable dust/m3    5 mg/m3 TWA
5000 mg/m3 IDLH

Personal Protective Equipment:
Skin Contact: Wear impervious protective clothing, including boots, gloves or coveralls, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact.
Eye Contact: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield to avoid contact with eyes. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Inhalation: Use NIOSH-approved dust respirator if exposure is unknown or exceeds permissible limits. A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.134 or ANSI Z88.2 requirements must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant respirator use. WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
Engineering Controls: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures below the Airborne Exposure Limits. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.
