Health Hazard Dust in excess of recommended exposure limits may result in irritation to the respiratory tract.
Signs and Symptoms of Exposure Eye and respiratory irritation may result if recommended exposure limits are exceeded.
Medical Conditions Generally Aggrivated by Exposure Chronic lung conditions may be aggravated by exposure to high concentrations of dust.
Threshold Exposure Limit to Fumes Exposure to and contact from dust may irritiate the respiratory system, eyes, or skin.
Carcinogenicity Soda lime glass is not listed on the NTP, IARC, or OSHA list of carcinogens.
Take special precaution to note the potential hazards of substrate, coatings or contamination that are removed by use of our product. All Material Certifications and chemical analyses should be obtained before commencement of work.

Section IX - First Aid Measures

Eye Contact In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician.
Skin Contact The product is not hazardous by skin contact, but removal of particles and cleaning the skin after use is advisable.
Inhalation If inhaled, immediately remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician.
Ingestion No specific intervention is indicated as the product is not hazardous by ingestion. However, if symptoms occur, consult a physician.

Section X - Exposure Controls & Personal Protection

Engineering Controls Use sufficient ventilation to keep employee exposure below recommended limits.
If using this product as an abrasive blasting agent in confined areas, airborne dust levels should be controlled by physical enclosure of the abrasive blasting operation. The enclosure should be exhaust ventilated n accordance with 29 CFR 1910.94 Ventilation (a) Abrasive Blasting.
Eye Safety glasses with side shields should be worn as a minimum protection from impact. Dust goggles should be worn when excessively dusty conditions are present or anticipated.
Respirator A NIOSH approved air-purifying respirator with a type 100 (high efficiency) particulate cartridge or canister may be permissible under certain circumstances where airborne concentrations are expected to exceed exposure limits.
For abrasive blasting use a type CE abrasive-blast, supplied-air respirator covering head, neck, and shoulders to provid protection from rebound abrasives per 29 CFR 1910.94 (a)(5).
Substrate, Coatings, or Contamination Take all necessary precautions stated herein as well as those directed by the coatings and substrate suppliers. Any contamination that cannot be traced must be sampled for its content prior to work.
