III. Hazards Identification

Physical hazards Not classified.

Health hazards Carcinogenicity Category 1A

OSHA defined hazards Not classified.

Hazard statement May cause cancer by inhalation

May cause severe skin irritation

May cause blindness

Precautionary statement

Prevention Obtain special instructions before use.

Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood. Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection, OSHA approved respirator.

Response If exposed or concerned: Get medical advice/attention. Storage Store locked up. Disposal Dispose of in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.

Hazard(s) not otherwise classified (HNOC) None known.


Gastric irritant. Ingestion may be followed by severe pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and collapse. If death does not occur in 24 hours, esophageal perforation may occur, as evidenced by fall in blood pressure and severe pain. A narrowing of the esophagus may occur weeks, months, or years after ingestion, making swallowing difficult.

Eye Contact:

Corrosive. May produce severe irritation and pain. May induce ulcerations of the corneal epithelium. Can cause blindness.

Chronic Exposure: Prolonged or repeated skin contact may produce severe irritation or dermatitis. Chronic exposure can cause silicosis, a form of lung scarring that can cause shortness of breath, reduced lung function, and in severe cases, death.

Aggravation of Pre-existing Conditions: Inhalation may increase the progression of tuberculosis; susceptibility is apparently not increased. Persons with impaired respiratory function may be more susceptible to the effects of this substance. Smoking can increase the risk of lung injury. Persons with preexisting skin problems or impaired respiratory function may be more susceptible to the effects of this substance.


IV. First Aid Measures for Accidental Exposure:


Skin Exposure:

In case of contact, wipe off excess material from skin then immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Call a physician immediately.

Eye Contact:

Immediately flush eyes with gentle but large stream of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Call a physician immediately.


Move to fresh air. If not breathing, administer artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Always wear a respirator when mixing dry mixes or sanding plaster. SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION.


DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Give large quantities of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Call a physician immediately.

Chronic Exposure: Seek medical professional

Aggravation of Pre-existing Conditions: Seek medical professional


V. Fire Fighting Measures

Fire rating for interior application over drywall

Flash Point: Noncombustible solid

Upper/Lower Explosive Limits: N/A

Special Fire Fighting Procedures: None

Explosion: Not considered to be an explosion hazard.

2+ hour burn rate over cement stucco


VI. Accidental Release Measures

Cleanup and Disposal of Spill:

Contain spilled material in the most convenient and safe manner. Discard any product, residue, disposable container or liner in full compliance with federal, state, and local regulations. Wear dust mask or suitable respirator when cleaning dry goods.


VII. Handling and Storage


Some products are in over 60 lbs. 5 gallon containers. Use appropriate care in lifting / handling heavy materials.


Keep package tightly closed and at room temperature. Add ¼” water to top of wet plaster to prevent drying out. When planning to store for longer than 2 years, we recommend mixing about 5% water to the plaster until it’s slightly thinned out. This will keep longer.


VIII. Exposure Controls / Personal Protection

Exposure Guidelines:

Due to the encapsulated form of these products, no exposure to the components in the products is anticipated under normal use conditions.

Engineering Controls:

Ventilation must be adequate to maintain the ambient workplace atmosphere below OSHA exposure limit(s).

Respiratory Protection:

Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Always use a NIOSH/MSA approved respirator when necessary.

Eye / Face Protection:

Wear safety glasses with side shields or goggles.

Skin Protection:

Wear latex gloves and protective clothing to minimize skin contact.

XI. Toxicological Information

Carcinogenicity: ND

Acute Eye Irritation:

May cause irritation or damage from sand abrasion

Acute Skin Irritation:

May cause irritation

Acute Respiratory Irritation:

May cause irritation

Acute Oral Toxicity:

May cause gastrointestinal irritation if swallowed Chronic Toxicity:

May cause silicosis if repeated long term un-protected exposure to dust

Effects of Dust Overexposure:

Inhalation: Inhalation of the dust may cause coughing, sneezing, irritation and inflammation of the upper respiratory tract. Inhalation of free crystalline silica (SiO2) may cause silicosis, a

dust disease with signs and symptoms of coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing and

changes in chest x-ray. Silicosis is typically associated with chronic or long-term exposure to silica; the disease may continue to progress even after exposure is eliminated.

Exposure to very high air concentrations of free silica can cause an acute form of silicosis

that may occur within one year after exposure begins. This condition may be fatal.

Dermal Exposure: Not absorbed through the skin. Calcium hydroxide and calcium oxide are caustic and may cause irritation of skin.

Eye Irritation: May be irritating to the eyes, with burning, itching, or redness. Can cause blindness.

Carcinogenicity: The Sixth Annual Report on Carcinogens, 1991, U.S. Department of Health and

Human Services, National Toxicology Program states: “There is sufficient

evidence of the carcinogenicity of respirable crystalline silica in experimental

animals.” However, an IARC Working Group has reported limited evidence of

carcinogenicity in humans. NIOSH considers respirable silica to be a potential

human carcinogen. OSHA and ACGIH have not identified respirable silica as


Ingestion: Not considered a likely route of exposure.


Special care should be take to prevent dust from becoming airborne. The use of ventilation and wet methods are recommended.

Respiratory Protection:

OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL), use appropriate NIOSH

approved half face respirator or appropriate dust mask with air filters.
