NOTES:
T=Total Dust; R=Respirable Dust; F=Fume;
1.  Exposure limits listed for each ingredient, is for exposure to dust that may be generated during product transfer and handling.
2. Solid Manganese Dioxide - 0.30 - 0.35 mm is formulated for use in water purification. Health effects resulting from the product being used for any other purpose or process is not addressed in this material safety date sheet.
3. NTP Class 2A: Reasonably anticipated to be a carcinogen, limited evidence of carcinogenicity from studies in humans.
4. IARC Group 2A: Probably carcinogenic to humans.

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW: Not a fire or spill hazard. Low toxicity, dry dust is a nuisance particulate. Generally, health effects are provided for exposure to dust that may be generated during product transfer and handling.

POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS:
Primary Route of Exposure: Inhalation.
Relevant Routes of Exposure:
Eye Contact: Contact with particulate may cause slight to moderate eye irritation. Abrasive action of dust particulate can damage eye.
Skin Contact: Prolonged or repeated contact may cause slight to moderate skin irritation.
Inhalation: Overexposure by inhalation of airborne particulate, dust, or fumes is irritating to the nose, throat, and respiratory tract. Inhalation of excessive levels of dust or fumes may be harmful.
Ingestion: Ingestion is an unlikely route of exposure; no hazard in normal industrial use. Small amounts (< tablespoonful) swallowed during normal handling operations are not likely to cause injury; however, swallowing larger amounts may cause injury. If ingested quantity, may cause gastrointestinal disturbances. Symptoms may include irritation, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
Target Organs: Respiratory system, eyes, central nervous system.
Acute Effects of Exposure: Excessive, short-term exposure to airborne mineral dusts and particulate may cause upper respiratory and eye irritation. Exposure via inhalation to high concentration of dusts containing manganese compounds for as little three months have effected the central nervous system.
Chronic Effects of Exposure: Excessive, long-term, inhalation of airborne mineral dusts and particulate may contribute to the development of bronchitis, reduced breathing capacity, and may lead to the increased susceptibility to lung disease. Manganese poisoning: The excessive, chronic inhalation of manganese compounds usually begins with complaints of languor and sleepiness. This is followed by weakness in the legs and the development of stolid, mask-like faces. The patient speaks with a slow monotonous voice. Then muscular twitching appear, varying from a fine tremor of the hands to coarse, rhythmical movements of the arms, legs, and trunk. There is a slight increase in tendon reflexes, ankle and patellar clonus, and a typical Parkinsonian slapping gate.
Signs and Symptoms of Exposure: The excessive inhalation of mineral dust may aggravate pre-existing chronic lung conditions such as, but not limited to, bronchitis, emphysema, and asthma.
Reproductive Hazards: Not a reproductive hazard.

POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS: Derived from natural ores; no adverse environment effects known. However, prevent spilled product from entering streams, water bodies, and waste water systems. This material is used as an agricultural product.
Section IV        FIRST AID MEASURES
FIRST AID PROCEDURES:
Eye Contact: Remove material by immediately flushing eyes with clean, flowing, lukewarm water (low pressure) for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if pain or irritation persists.
Skin Contact: Immediately wash affected area with mild soap and water to remove any dust adhering to the skin. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.
Inhalation: If exposed to excessive levels of dusts or fumes, remove to fresh air and get medical attention if cough or other symptoms develop. If not breathing, give artificial respiration or give oxygen by trained personnel, and get medical attention.
Ingestion: Ingestion is an unlikely route of exposure. If ingested in sufficient quantity and victim is conscious, give 1-2 glasses of water or milk. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Leave decision to induce vomiting to qualified medical personnel, since particles may be aspirated into the lungs. Seek immediate medical attention.

NOTE TO PHYSICIANS: None.
Section V        FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
FLAMMABLE PROPERTIES: Material will not bum. Although not combustible, this material is a strong oxidizing agent, which liberates oxygen during thermal decomposition. It may increase the burning rate of combustibles with a flare-burning effect. It may cause reignition after a fire is extinguished.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use dry chemical or C02 to extinguish fires involving this material.
PROTECTION FOR FIREFIGHTERS: Material should be kept out of eyes and of skin. As in any fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus pressure-demand. MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent) and full protective gear. Do not release runoff from fire control methods to sewers or waterways.
Section VI        ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
CONTAINMENT: Products is dry solid (granular or powder) and not readily soluble in water. However, prevent spilled product from entering streams, water bodies, and waste water systems.
CLEANUP: Vacuum or sweep up dry material and place in a container for reuse. Avoid creating excessive airborne dust. Cleanup personnel need to wear approved respiratory protection (air purifying or air-supply), gloves, long, sleeved clothing and goggles to prevent irritation from contact and inhalation.
COLLECTION: If possible, collect and reuse spilled product.
REPORTING: SEE SECTION 15: REGULATORY INFORMATION
EVACUATION: Isolate hazard area. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering.
Section VII        HANDLING AND STORAGE
HANDLING: Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid breathing dust. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
STORAGE: Store in a cool, dry area. Keep container closed when not in use. Product or component is a powerful oxidizer, hence it should not stored near organic matter or other easily oxidizable substances, e.g., sulfur, sulfides, phosphides, hypophosphides, etc. or incompatible materials such as hydrogen peroxide and sodium peroxide.
Section VIII        EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
ENGINEERING CONTROLS: If user operations generate dust, fume, or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limits in SECTION 2.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT:
Eye & Face Protection Corrosive to eyes. Wear protective safety goggles when dust generation is likely.
Skin Protection: Wear clothing sufficient to cover the skin, safety shoes, and leather gloves for hand protection against dry material.
Respiratory protection: Use NIOSH/MSHA approved respiratory protection (air purifying or air supplying) when concentrations are above exposure limit value. A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA 29 CFR part 1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2 requirements must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant the use of a respirator.
General Hygiene Considerations: Wash thoroughly after using product. Wash contaminated clothing. Wash hands before eating or drinking.
