4   FIRST AID MEASURES

General Measures: Remove patient from area of exposure.

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

INGESTION: Rinse mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. Seek medical attention. Never induce vomiting or give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

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

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

Most Important Symptoms/Effects, Acute and Delayed: May cause irritation. See section 11 for more information.

Indication of Immediate Medical Attention and Special Treatment: No other relevant information available.

 

 

5   FIREFIGHTING MEASURES

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

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: No information available.

Specific Hazards Arising from the Material: May evolve toxic fumes under fire conditions.

Special Protective Equipment and Precautions for Firefighters: Full face, self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.

 

 

6   ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment, and Emergency Procedures: Wear appropriate respiratory and protective equipment specified in section 8. Isolate spill area and provide ventilation. Avoid breathing dust or fume. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Methods and Materials for Containment and Cleaning Up: Avoid dust formation. Scoop up or vacuum using a vacuum equipped with a HEPA filter and place in a properly labeled closed container for further handling and disposal.

Environmental Precautions: Do not flush to sewer, stream, or other bodies of water. Do not allow to enter drains or to be released to the environment.

 

 

7   HANDLING AND STORAGE

Precautions for Safe Handling: Handle in an enclosed, controlled process. Avoid creating dust. Provide adequate ventilation if dusts are created. Avoid breathing dust or fumes. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wash thoroughly before eating or smoking. See section 8 for information on personal protection equipment.

Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities: Store in a cool, dry area.  Store material tightly sealed in properly labeled containers. See section 10 for more information on incompatible materials.

 

 

8   EXPOSURE CONTROLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION

Exposure Limits:        OSHA/PEL:                              ACGIH/TLV:

Magnesium Zirconate     No exposure limit established     No exposure limit established

Appropriate Engineering Controls: Whenever possible the use of local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls is the preferred method of controlling exposure to airborne dust and fume to meet established occupational exposure limits. Use good housekeeping and sanitation practices. Do not use tobacco or food in work area. Wash thoroughly before eating or smoking. Do not blow dust off clothing or skin with compressed air.

Individual Protection Measures, Such as Personal Protective Equipment:

   Respiratory Protection: Wear a NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator when dusts or fumes are present.

   Eye Protection: Safety glasses

   Skin Protection: Wear impermeable gloves, protective work clothing as necessary.

11   TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Likely Routes of Exposure: Inhalation, skin and eyes.

Symptoms of Exposure: May cause irritation.

Acute and Chronic Effects:

Magnesium Compounds:  Inhalation of excessive concentrations of magnesium oxide fume may cause metal fume fever. Oral administration of magnesium salts may cause vomiting with few other effects unless, however evacuation fails, then mucosal irritation and absorption occur. Overexposure via oral, intravenous and intraperitoneal routes to magnesium (+2) salts may affect the central nervous, heart and respiratory systems.

Zinc Oxide:  Inhalation of fumes containing zinc oxide may cause metal fume fever. Metal fume fever is a well-documented acute disease induced by intense inhalation of metal oxides, especially zinc, and impairs pulmonary function but does not progress to chronic lung disease. Symptoms generally appear within a few hours after acute exposure, usually with dryness of the throat and coughing. The most prominent respiratory effects of metal fume fever are substernal chest pain, cough, and dyspnea. The respiratory symptoms generally disappear in the exposed individual within 1-4 days. Inhalation of zinc oxide is most likely to occur in occupational situations where zinc smelting or welding take place. Ultrafine zinc oxide particles (0.2-1.0 um) originate from heating zinc beyond its boiling point in an oxidizing atmosphere. Upon inhalation, these small particles (<1 um) reach the alveoli and cause inflammation and tissue damage in the lung periphery.
