NOTE: NORMAL HANDLI JG OR PROCESSING OF THIS MATERIAL MAY RESULT IN THE GENERATION OF ZINC DlISTS ANDIOR FUMES WHICH MAY PRESENT A POTENTIAL HEALTH HAZARD.

ROUTES OF ENTRY: inh~ latlon (rume), ingestion, dermal SYMPTOMS & EFFECT 01 'OVEREXPOSURE: Inhalation

Chronic {prolonged ~ overexposure to tin can result in benign pneumoconiosis (stannous). This form of pneumocon osis produces progressive x-ray changes of the lungs as long as exposure exists, but there is T 0 distinctive fibrosis, no evidence of disability and no special complicating factors. Headaches coughing, difficulty in breathing, chest pains, severe lung irritation, and pulmonary edema.

Acu1e: eye, mucou I membrane, respiratory and skin irritation.

Dermal: may caus ~ burns, skin irritation.

Eye Contact: may cause burns

Ingestion: Vomitin I, nausea, gastrointestinal irritation, bums to mucous membranes, mouth

MEDICAL CONDITIONS PI )SSIBL Y AGGRA VA TED BY EXPOSURE: Pre-existing conditions of the lungs. CARCINOGENICITY: Not I sted as a carcinogen by NTP, OSHA, ACGIH

ADDITIONAL INFORMA TI( IN: Pre-employment medical evaluations are recommended for large users of this product. Attention shou d be directed to skin, eyes, respiratory tract and pulmonary function. Periodic medical examinations shou d be repeated on an annual basis for those employees exposed to potentially hazardous levels of this pre :Iuct.

EMERGENCY & FIRST All ~ PROCEDURES:

SKIN: Normal hyg ene and first aid procedures; wash with soap and water. If irritation or rash develops or perslst i, obtain medical attention.

EYES: Flush well lIIith running water to remove particulate. If irritation persists, get medical attention.

ACUTE INHALATI( )N: Remove from exposure. Obtain immediate medical attention.

INGESTION: Give water, do not induce vomiting. Obtain immediate medical attention.

seCTION VII ~ PROTECTION MEASURES

==~;~~~===:==========:=~~=~===========~~~~=~=========~~~~~~=========~~~~~~======

PROTECTION: Respirator (protection is required where airborne exposures exceed U.S. OSHAlACG1H permissible air cone entranons. Respirator selection shall be made in accordance with the U.S OSHA Respiratory I )rotection Standard 29 CFR 1910.134,

VENTILATION: Good gene 'al dilution ventilation or ventilation as described in "Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recomm :mded Practice", by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists, is recorr mended in order to maintain exposure levels below the PEL's or TL V's specified by U.S. 0 :iHA or other local or state regulations.

PROTECTIVE GLOVES: R scommendeo for prolonged contact/heat.

EYE PROTECTION: Safet~ glasses or goggles are recommended where the possibility exists of getting product in the eyes. Safety glasses or goggles wIth face shield are recommended

around molten met~ I.

OTHER PROTECnV£ EQ~ IIPMENT: Safety equipment should be worn as appropriate for the work em ironment includes, apron, safety goggles.

WORKlHYGIENfC PRACTI';ES: Do not permit eating, drinking or the use of cosmetics or tobacco products wllile handling or processing material or in product work areas. Practice good personal h) giene procedures. Wash hands and face thoroughly before eating, drinking, applying co smetcs or using tobacco products. Avoid inhalation and ingestion of product and activitiE s which generate dust or fume. Keep melting temperatures as low as possible to minimize the generation of fumes.

~~~~~===========================~~~~~==================~=~~~===================~

SECTIC N VIII - PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE

=====================:====~~~~~~~~~=================~~~~~~~~===============~~~~~

PRECAUTIONS TO BE TA (EN IN HANDLING & STORING: Practice good housekeeping procedures to prevent accumulatic Ins. Keep material dry. Avoid storage near incompatible materials (see Section V). Keep p 'educt away from children and their environment.

OTHER PRECAUTIONS: ~ peclal attention is drawn to the requirements of the U.S. Respirator Standard (29 CFR 1910.134) should airborne exposures exceed the U,S. OSHA Action Level (AL) or PEL. Inadvertent contam nants to product such as moisture, ice, snow, grease or oil can cause an explosion when ch~ rged to a molten metal bath or melting furnace, (Preheating metal will remove moisture from prod' ret).

=================================~~~~======================~~~~~================

SECTION IX - SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES

=====~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~'~~======================~=~~~~~==~==============~~~~~~===~=

SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDI/RES: 1) Material in dust form - minimize exposure. Clean up using dustless methods (e.g. HEP ~ vacuum), Do not use compressed air. 2) Place in closed labeled containers for recycling or disj osal. 3) Keep out of waterways.

NOTE: Clean-up personrul should wear protective clothing and respiratory protection where dustlfume exposure exists.

SEC· 'ION IX - SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES (continued)

========~~~~~=~======:========~~~~=~===========~~~=~===========~~~~~===========~

OTHER PROCEDURES: F)r large product users or involving large product quantities, we recommend that the purchaser establish a s~ ill prevention, control and countermeasure plan. This plan should include procedures for proper stora, Ie as well as clean-up of spills or leaks. The procedures should Conform to safe practices and provide f )r proper recovery and/or disposal. Depending on the quantity spilled, notification to the U.S. Natic nal response center (800-424,8802) may be required in case of hazardous substances. (See USEPA end USDOT regulations; also various state and local regulations.)

WASTE DISPOSAL METH( )DS: May have value on a recycled basis. If disposed of, dispose of in a permitted disposal site in ac corcance with all federa, state and local disposal or discharge regulations. Under the U.S. Resource C mservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), it is the responsibility of the user of the product to determine at the ime of disposal whether the product faUs under the RCRA as a hazardous waste. This is because prouct uses, transformations, synthesis, mixtures, etc. may cause the resulting end-product to be classified as hazardous.
