V. Health Hazard Information
- Dust from grinding or cutting may be irritating if excessive.
- Contact with Skin or Eyes:
- Dust from grinding or cutting may cause irritation or dry skin. Cement is strongly alkaline material.
- Absorbed Through Skin:
- May be corrosive to the digestive tract.
- Exposure to glass fibers in the dust from this product may cause irritation of the skin and less frequently, irritation of the eyes, nose or throat. Cement dust and ceramic dust is a respiratory irritant and may dry the skin.
- None known
- Non known
- None known
- Long term inhalation of large amounts of respirable dust can cause lung damage.
- None known
- Dilute by giving two (2) glasses of milk or water to drink followed by fruit juices or diluted vinegar to neutralize the alkali from the cement. Consult physician.
