SECTION 3 – HAZARDOUS IDENTIFICATION
Emergency Overview A solid grey powder material that is not flammable & combustible at room temperature. This product is relatively non toxic & does not pose an immediate hazard to the health of emergency response personnel or to the environment in an emergency situation.
Potential Health Effects Acute exposure to iron-oxide fume or dust can cause X-ray changes in the lungs as a result of long term exposure. Siderosis is a benign condition & is not associated with pulmonary fibrosis. Silicon Carbide dust may cause mild irritation of the upper respiratory tract on acute over-exposure. Chronic over-exposure to particulates of respirable size may cause lung inflammation, chest pain, difficult breathing, coughing & pneumoconiosis or possible fibrotic changes in the lungs. Prolonged over-exposure to respirable crystalline silica in excess of the TLV may cause Silicosis.
Potential Environmental Effects The product has a high degree of intrinsic chemical stability & is relatively non toxic in the environment.

SECTION 4 – FIRST AID & MEASURES
Eye Contact The product is a powder & may be a mechanical irritant in the eyes. Flush eyes with water until irritation is removed.
Skin Contact Remove contaminated clothing & wash exposed areas with soap & water.
Inhalation Use adequate respiratory protection remove victim from exposure area to fresh area. Medical Oxygen may be administered, if available, where breathing is difficult. If irritation persists or cough or symptoms develop, seek medical attention.
Ingestion If swallowed, don’t induce vomiting. Consult a Physician, if necessary

SECTION 6 – ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Procedure for Clean up Ensure personal safety & control source of spillage. Clean up spilled material immediately, observing precautions in Section 8, Personal Protection & using methods that will minimize dust generation. Return uncontaminated spilled material to the process, if possible. Treat or dispose of waste material in accordance withall local, regional & national requirements.
Personal Precautions Persons responding to an accidental release should wear protective clothes, gloves & a dust respirator.
Environmental Precautions Care should be taken to prevent the spillage of this product to aquatic & terrestrial environments. Measures to control dust generation from product spills should be applied in dry dusty locations.

SECTION 7 – HANDLING & STORAGE
Procedure for Clean up Material is to be stored in suitable containers. Handle & open the container with care in accordance with good storage & handling practices. Worn after handling always wash hands with soap & water.

SECTION 8 – EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
Protective Clothing Protective Clothing :- Gloves & coveralls or other work clothing are recommended to prevent prolonged or repeated direct skin contact. Appropriate eye protection should be where dust is generated.
Ventilation Use adequate local or general ventilation to maintain the concentration of dust in the work environment well below the recommended occupational exposure limit.
Respirators Where excessive dust is generated & cannot be controlled to within acceptable levels by engineering means, use appropriate NIOSH approved respiratory protection equipments for very fine particulates.

SECTION 11 – TOXOLOGICAL INFORMATION
General This material is relatively non toxic. Normal handling should not cause either acute or chronic health effects. where dust is generated.
Acute Acute exposure to iron-oxide fume or dust can cause X-ray changes in the lungs as a result of long term exposure. Siderosis is a benign condition & is not associated with pulmonary fibrosis. Airborne respirable dust may cause irritation in lungs, nose & throat.
Skin Components are not probably irritating to skin.
Eye The product is a powder & may be a mechanical irritant in the eyes.
Inhalation Silicon Carbide dust may cause mild irritation of the upper respiratory tract on acute over-exposure. Chronic over-expposure to particulates of respirable size may cause lung inflammation, chest pain, difficult breathing, coughing & pneumoconiosis or possible fibrotic changes in the lungs. Prolonged over-exposure to respirable crystalline silica in excess of the TLV may cause Silicosis.
Ingestion Not established

SECTION 12 – ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
The principal constituents of this product are chemically stable and, as such it will be relatively inert in the environment. Material should, however be kept in suitable containers & spilled material cleaned-up.

SECTION 13 – DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
If material can not be returned to process or salvage dispose of in accordance with applicable regulations. Material may be disposed of in a sanitary landfill.
