V.   HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION

Effects of Exposure:

To the best of our knowledge the chemical, physical and toxicological properties of strontium titanate have no been thoroughly investigated and recorded.

Strontium compounds have a low order of toxicity.  It is chemically and biologically similar to calcium.  The oxides and hydroxides are moderately caustic materials.  For titanium compounds, these materials are considered to be physiologically inert.  There are no reported cases in the literature where titanium as such has caused intoxication.  The dusts of titanium compounds such as titanium oxide may be placed in the nuisance category.  (Sax, Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials, sixth edition)

Acute Effects:

Inhalation:  May be a nuisance dust.  May cause coughing and shortness of breath.

Ingestion:  No acute health effects recorded.

Skin:  May cause irritation.

Eyes:  Dust may cause irritation.

Chronic Effects:

Inhalation:  No chronic health effects recorded.

Ingestion:  No chronic health effects recorded.

Skin:  No chronic health effects recorded.

Eyes:  No chronic health effects recorded.

Threshold Limit Value:  Not established

Routes of Entry:  Inhalation, Skin, Eyes, Ingestion.

Target Organs:  No target organs for strontium titanate have been recorded.

Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Pre-existing lung disorders

CarcinogenicityNTP? No      IARC Monographs? No        OSHA Regulated? 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.

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

SKIN:  Remove contaminated clothing.  Brush material off exposed area.  Rinse area with soap and water.  Seek medical attention.

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

 

 

VI.   REACTIVITY DATA

Stability:   Stable

Conditions to Avoid:  Not applicable

Incompatibility (Material to Avoid):  Strong Acids and Strong Bases

Hazardous Decomposition Products:  May emit toxic fumes when heated to decomposition (strontium oxide, titanium oxide).

Hazardous Polymerization:  Will not occur

 

 

VII.   SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES

Steps to Be Taken in Case Material Is Released or Spilled:  Wearing respiratory protection and protective clothing.  Stop leak if without risk, cover spill with soda ash.  Collect into a properly marked container and submit or retain for disposal or salvage.

Waste Disposal Method:  Consult Local, State, and Federal Regulations for proper disposal recovery of Strontium salts.

 

 

VIII.   SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION

Respiratory Protection (Specify Type):  Wear NIOSH/MSHA approved dust mask for ordinary use and self-contained breathing

apparatus for emergency use.

Ventilation:  Use local exhaust to maintain concentration at low exposure levels.  General exhaust is recommended.

Protective Gloves:  Rubber

Eye Protection:  Chemical safety glasses

Other Protective Equipment:  Laboratory coat and apron.  Eye wash fountain capable of sustained flushing.  Safety drench shower, hygienic facilities for washing.

 

 

IX.   SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS

Precautions to Be Taken in Handling and Storage:  Wash thoroughly after handling.  Keep container tightly closed.  Use adequate ventilation.  Store away from acids.

Precautionary Labeling:  WARNING!  IRRITANT!  DO NOT INHALE DUST.  EYE CONTACT MAY CAUSE IRRITATION.

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.
