SECTION 3 — HAZARDOUS INFORMATION
Primary Route(s) of Entry: Inhalation, Skin, Eye, Ingestion
Inhalation Hazards: May cause respiratory tract, nose, throat, and lung irritation and inflammation
Skin Hazards: May irritate skin causing drying, redness, rash, and blistering. When mixed with water, a high alkali material is produced which can cause severe skin burns. Individuals may develop allergic dermatitis.
Eye Hazards: May severely irritate eyes. May develop inflammation of the cornea.
Ingestion Hazards: May be caustic to mucus tissue.
Chronic Exposure: Individuals may develop allergic dermatitis, inflammation of the cornea, and inflammation of the nose, throat, and lungs. May cause carcinogenic effects.
Carcinogenic Effects: During manufacturing of a Hydraulic Cement small traces of insoluble residues will form. These traces may have crystalline silica, a known Human Carcinogen (Group 1), that can cause silicosis and cancer. Exposure to crystalline silica may also increase the risk of Scleroderma, tuberculosis, and kidney disorders. May contain traces of chemicals on the California Proposition 65 list.
Threshold Limit Value: 5 mg/m3 (respirable dust), 10 mg/m3 (total dust), 30 million particles per cubic footHazardous Components, CAS No., PEL (OSHA)[mg/m3], TLV (ACGIH)[mg/m3]
