11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
|Health hazard summary||Irritant. Use safe work practices to avoid eye or skin contact and inhalation. Chronic exposure to crystalline silica may result in lung fibrosis (silicosis). However, due to the low levels of crystalline silica, chronic health effects are not anticipated with normal use. Crystalline silica is classified as carcinogenic to humans (IARC Group 1)|
|Eye||Irritant. Contact may result in irritation, lacrimation, pain, redness and conjunctivitis. May result in burns with prolonged contact.|
|Inhalation||High Chronic toxicity – irritant. Over exposure to dust may result in mucous membrane irritation of the respiratory tract. Chronic exposure to crystalline silica may result in silicosis (lung fibrosis). Crystalline silica is classified as carcinogenic to humans (IARC Group 1).|
|Skin||Irritant. Contact may result in irritation, redness, pain and rash. May cause sensitization by skin contact|
|Ingestion||Low to moderate toxicity. Ingestion may result in gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhoea.|
|Toxicity data||Quartz (Silica Crystalline) (14808-60-7)
LCLo (Inhalation) : 300 ug/m3/10 years (human)
LDLo (Intravenous) : 200 mg/kg (rat)

16. OTHER INFORMATION
|Additional Information||Crystalline silica is present in Fly Ash as an impurity. The amount depends on the crystalline silica content of the source coal.
ALUMINO SILICATES: When alumina silicates have been exposed to service temperatures exceeding 982o C for prolonged periods, cristobalite, a form of crystalline silica may be formed. Exposure to cristobalite dust may cause pulmonary fibrosis-silicosis. A hazard is only anticipated during demolition of used refractory materials. Cristobalite is classified as carcinogenic to humans (IARC Group 1).
RESPIRATORS: In general the use of respirators should be limited and engineering controls employed to avoid exposure. If respiratory equipment must be worn ensure correct respirator selection and training is undertaken. Remember that some respirators may be extremely uncomfortable when used for long periods. The use of air supplied respirators should be considered where prolonged or repeated use is necessary.
