Eye Contact: No adverse effects expected but dust may cause irritation.
Chronic Exposure: Chronic exposure to dust may lead to pneumoconiosis.
Aggravation of
Pre-existing Conditions:
Not expected to be a health hazard.


SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Inhalation:
Move to fresh air and consult with local medical personnel if discomfort
persists.
Ingestion:
Administer water to dilute, but not if person is unconscious. Consult with local
medical personnel if discomfort persists.
Eye Contact:
Flush with tepid water for a minimum of 15 minutes and consult with local
medical personnel if discomfort persists.
Skin Contact:
Wash affected area with soap and water and consult with local medical
personnel if irritation persists.
