Potential Health Effects
May cause eye irritation.
Causes skin irritation. Chronic ingestion may cause hypercalcemia, alkalosis, and kidney damage. May also produce "milk-alkali syndrome" characterized by neurological symptoms such as irritability, lethargy, stupor, and coma.
Ingestion of large amounts may cause gastrointestinal irritation. Expected to be a low ingestion hazard.
Low hazard for usual industrial handling. Excessive inhalation may cause minor respiratory irritation.
Chronic ingestion may cause hypercalcemia, alkalosis, and kidney damage. May also produce "milk-alkali syndrome" characterized by neurological symptoms such as irritability, lethargy, stupor, and coma.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures
Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
Skin: Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid ifirritation develops or persists. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Get medical aid.
Inhalation:Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid if cough or other symptoms appear.
Notes to Physician:

Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures
General Information:
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion.
Non-combustible, substance itself does not burn but may decompose upon heating to produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic fumes.
Extinguishing Media:
Substance is noncombustible; use agent most appropriate to extinguish surrounding fire.

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures
General Information:
Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the
Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Provide ventilation.

Section 7 - Handling and Storage
Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid ingestion and inhalation.
Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Keep away from strong acids.

Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection

Engineering Controls:
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.

protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European
Standard EN166.
Wear appropriate gloves to prevent skin exposure.
Wear appropriate protective clothing to minimize contact with skin.
Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29 CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Use a NIOSH/MSHA or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator if exposure limits are exceeded or if irritation or other symptoms are experienced.
