Health Hazards (acute and chronic): Inhalation of respirable crystalline silica dust can produce progressive symptoms ranging from pulmonary discomfort to fibrotic changes to chronic lung disease.

Carcinogenicity:   NTP?---Yes            IARC Monographs?---Yes          OSHA Regulated?---No

Signs and symptoms of exposure?     Cough, labored breathing, breathing discomfort, and/or wheezing.

Medical conditions aggravated by exposure:  None currently known

Emergency and First Aid Procedures: Inhalation --- Remove to fresh air.     Eyes --- Flush with water. If pain or irruption persists, seek medical attention.     Swallowing --- Clear the mouth of material.  If large quantity has been ingested call a physician, poison control center or emergency services for advise and/or aid.

Permissable Exposure Limits: OSHA PEL --- 0.1 mg/m3;    ACGIH TLV --- 0.10 mg/m3;  
  MSHA --------10.0 mg/m3;   NIOSH -------- 0.05 mg/m3 , 

Section VII:   Precautions for Safe Handling and Use

Steps to be taken in case material is released or spilled:

Vacuum or wet sweep; use adequate ventilation; use of NIOSH approved respirator with ‘HEPA’ filter is advisable.  Transfer sweeping to sealable container.  Do not flush down drains.  Dispose of in accordance with Federal, State and Local regulations.  Store in a dry area away from sharp objects, which can tear or puncture bags.

In dusty areas use of MSHA or NIOSH approved respirators and eye protection should be used if PEL is exceeded.

Section VIII:  Control Measures

  • Respiratory Protection (specify type)
  • Use MSHA or NIOSH approved respirators (29CFR 1910.134) if exposure level exceeds PEL.
  • Ventilation must be sufficient to reduce the level of respirable crystalline silica to a value equal to or below the PEL.
  • Protective gloves ------------------ Optional               
  • Eye protection --------------------- Advisable in dusty areas
  • Other protective equipment ----- Optional
  • Work / Hygienic practices ------- Use good housekeeping practices. Follow precautions in VII and VIII above.
