Section 5 – Fire Fighting Measures General Fire Hazards See Section 9 for Flammability Properties.
None Hazardous Combustion Products None Extinguishing Media Use appropriate extinguishing media for surrounding fire.
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media None
Fire Fighting Equipment/Instructions Firefighters should wear full protective gear.
Section 6 – Accidental Release Measures Recovery and Neutralization Avoid actions that cause dust to become airborne. Avoid inhalation of dust and contact with skin. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as described in Section 8.
Materials and Methods for Clean-Up Vacuum cleaning is the preferred method for the dry fine materials. Avoid dry sweeping which creates dust.
Apply water spray to prevent airborne dust. Scrape up wet material and place in an appropriate container.
Emergency Measures Isolate area. Keep unnecessary personnel away.
Personal Precautions and Protective Equipment Wear protective equipment and clothing during clean-up.
Environmental Precautions None Prevention of Secondary Hazards None Section 7 – Handling and Storage Handling Procedures Wash thoroughly after exposure to dust. Promptly remove dusty clothing and launder before use.
Storage Procedures Normal temperatures and pressures do not affect the material.
Incompatibilities None Section 8 – Exposure Controls/ Personal Protection Component Exposure Limits Quartz (14808-60-7) ACGIH: 0.025 mg/m3 TWA (respirable fraction) NIOSH: 0.05 mg/m3 TWA (respirable dust) Engineering Measures Use local exhaust or general dilution ventilation to control exposure within applicable limits.
Personal Protective Equipment: Respiratory Avoid actions that cause dust exposure to occur. Use local or general ventilation to control exposures below applicable exposure limits. NIOSH or MSHA approved particulate filter respirators should be used in the context of respiratory protection program meeting the requirements of the OSHA respiratory protection standard [29 CFR 1910.134] to control exposures when ventilation or other controls are inadequate or discomfort or irritation is experienced. Respirator and/or filter cartridge selection should be based on American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Standards Z88.2 Practices for Respiratory Protection.
Personal Protective Equipment: Hands Where prolonged exposure to products might occur, wear impervious gloves to eliminate skin contact.
Personal Protective Equipment: Eyes When engaged in activities where ingredients could contact the eye, wear safety glasses with side shields or goggles. In extremely dusty environments and unpredictable environments, wear unvented or indirectly vented goggles to avoid eye irritation or injury. Contact lenses should not be worn when working with ingredients.
Personal Protective Equipment: Skin and Body Normal work clothing (long sleeved shirts and long pants) is recommended.
