IV.  FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD DATA

Flash Point:  N/E or N/A

Method Used:  Non-flammable

Explosive LimitsLower:  N/A         Upper:  N/A

Extinguishing Media:  Use suitable extinguishing agents for surrounding materials and type of fire.

Special Firefighting Procedures:  Firefighters must wear full face, self-contained breathing apparatus with full protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.  Fumes from fire are hazardous.  Isolate runoff to prevent environmental pollution.

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:  When heated to decomposition, sodium titanate may emit toxic fumes of Na2O.

 

 

V.  HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION

Effects of Exposure: To the best of our knowledge the chemical, physical and toxicological properties of sodium titanate have not been thoroughly investigated and recorded.

Sodium compounds have variable toxicity.  Sodium ions as such is practically nontoxic.

Titanium is generally considered to be physiologically inert.  There are no reported cases in the literature where titanium as such has cause human intoxication.  The dusts of titanium or most titanium compounds such as titanium oxide may be placed in  the nuisance category.  (Sax, Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials, eighth edition.)

Acute and Chronic Effects:

Inhalation:  May cause irritation to the upper respiratory tract and mucous membranes.

Ingestion:  No health effects recorded.

Skin:  May cause abrasive irritation.

Eye:  Prolonged or repeated contact may cause abrasive irritation.

Routes of Entry:  Inhalation

Target Organs:  No target organ effects recorded.

Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Pre-existing respiratory disorders.

CarcinogenicityNTP:  No               IARC:  No             OSHA:  No

 

EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES:

INHALATION:  Remove victim to fresh air, keep warm and quiet, give oxygen if breathing is difficult and seek medical attention if symptoms persist.

INGESTION:  Give 1-2 glasses of milk or water and induce vomiting, seek medical attention if symptoms persist.  Never induce vomiting or give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

SKIN:  Remove contaminated clothing, brush material off skin, wash affected area with mild soap and water.  Seek medical attention if symptoms persist.

EYE:  Flush eyes with lukewarm water, lifting upper and lower eyelids, for at least 15 minutes.  Seek medical attention if symptoms persist.

 

 

VI.  REACTIVITY DATA

Stability:  Stable

Conditions to Avoid:  None

Incompatibility (Material to Avoid):  None recorded

Hazardous Decomposition Products:  Na2O

Hazardous Polymerization:  Will not occur.

 

 

VII.  SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES

Steps to Be Taken in Case Material is Released:  Wear appropriate respiratory and protective equipment specified in section VIII.  Isolate spill area and provide ventilation.  Vacuum up spill using a high efficiency particulate absolute (HEPA) air filter and place in a closed container for proper disposal.  Take care not to raise dust.

Waste Disposal Method:  Dispose of in accordance with Federal, State and Local regulations.

 

VIII.  SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION

Respiratory Protection:  NIOSH approved respirator.

Ventilation:  Local exhaust ventilation may be necessary to control any air contaminants to within their the PEL's or TLV's during the use of this product.  Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control airborne levels.

Protective Gloves:  Rubber gloves

Eye Protection:  Safety glasses

Other Protective Clothing or Equipment:  Protective gear suitable to prevent contamination.

 

 

IX.  SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS

Precautions to Be Taken in Handling and Storage:  Store in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dry area.  Store away from oxidizers.  Wash thoroughly after handling.

Work Practices:  Implement engineering and work practice controls to reduce and maintain concentration of exposure at low levels.  Use good housekeeping and sanitation practices.  Do not use tobacco or food in work area.  Wash thoroughly before eating and smoking.  Do not blow dust off clothing or skin with compressed air.  Maintain eyewash capable of sustained flushing, safety drench shower and facilities for washing.

DOT Regulations:

Hazard Class:   None
