SECTION 11 TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Information on toxicological effects


The material is not thought to produce adverse health effects or irritation of the respiratory tract (as classified by
Inhaled
EC Directives using animal models).

Ingestion The material has NOT been classified by EC Directives or other classification systems as "harmful by ingestion".

The material is not thought to produce adverse health effects or skin irritation following contact (as classified by
Skin Contact
EC Directives using animal models).

Although the material is not thought to be an irritant (as classified by EC Directives), direct contact with the eye
Eye
may cause transient discomfort characterised by tearing or conjunctival redness (as with windburn).

Chronic Long term exposure to high dust concentrations may cause changes in lung function (i.e. pneumoconiosis) caused
by particles less than 0.5 micron penetrating and remaining in the lung.
