V.   HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION

Exposure Criteria:  No specific exposure limit for zinc silicate.  The OSHA limit for inert particulates is 15 mg/m3, while the TLV for inert particulates is 10 mg/m3.

Effects of Over Exposure:

Inhalation:  None expected.  Zinc compounds are considered to have a relatively low order of toxicity.  However, as a matter of good practice, exposure to high concentrations of dusts should be avoided.

Ingestion:  Unknown, but probably none for any kind of accidental ingestion likely to occur in an industrial environment since phosphor is insoluble.

Skin or Eye Contact:  No adverse effects anticipated.

 

EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES:

INHALATION:  If irritation or other symptoms occur, remove from exposure.  Seek medical attention.

INGESTION:  If substantial quantities are swallowed, give person (if conscious) a large quantity of water to drink, induce vomiting and seek medical attention.

SKIN:  If irritation occurs, thoroughly wash affected area with mild soap and water and prevent further contact.  If irritation persists, seek medical attention.

EYES:  If irritation occurs, flush with copious amounts of water.  If irritation persists, seek medical attention.

 

 

VI.   REACTIVITY DATA

Stability:  Stable

Incompatibility (Material to Avoid):  None

Hazardous Decomposition Procedures:  None

Hazardous Polymerization:  Will not Occur

 

 

VII.   SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES

Hazardous Waste Classification (RCRA)-Federal:  Not Classified

Steps to Be Taken in Case Material Is Released or Spilled:  Use normal clean-up procedures, using a broom or vacuum, taking care not to raise dust.

Waste Disposal Method:  In accordance with all applicable Federal, State, and local regulations.

 

 

VIII.   SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION

Respiratory Protection (Specify Type):  If exposure may exceed permissible limits, use a NIOSH-approved respirator for toxic dusts having a TLV not less than 0.05 mg/m3.

Ventilation:  If necessary, use local exhaust ventilation to keep exposure levels below permissible limits for inert particulates.

Eye Protection:  Safety glasses or goggles are recommended.

Other Protective Equipment:  None

 

 

IX.   SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS

Precautions To Be Taken In Handling and Storage:  Maintain good housekeeping procedures to prevent accumulation of dust.  Store in a dry and cool area.

Other Precautions:  Wash thoroughly after handling and before eating or smoking and at the end of the work shift.
