Section 3 鈥? Hazards Identification
Emergency Overview:
No unusual fire or spill hazard. Dusts may be irritating to skin, eyes and mucous membranes.
Primary Route(s) of Entry for Particulate:
Inhalation: Yes Other: No
Skin: Yes Ingestion: No
Potential Adverse Health Effects:
Eye: Dusts of this product may irritate and/or abrade eyes
Skin: None Known.
Inhalation: Dusts of this product may be irritating to respiratory tract.
Eye: None Known
Skin: None Known
Inhalation: Prolonged breathing of dust of this product in excess of the stated PEL or TLV may cause lung disease
(Silicosis). According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), there is sufficient evidence in
humans for the carcinogenicity of inhaled crystalline silica in the form of quartz or cristobalite from occupational
Carcinogenicity: Crystalline Silica inhaled in the form of quartz or cristobalite from occupational sources is
carcinogenic to humans (GROUP 1 IARC, NTP).
California Proposition 65: This product contains crystalline silica, chemical known to the State of California to cause
Signs and Symptoms of Overexposure: Coughing can result from overexposure to dust.
Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure to Particles: Pre-existing disease or other conditions of the
lungs, skin, eyes and mucous membranes.
Section 4- First Aid Measures
Eye Contact: Flush product from eyes using large amounts of water. If irritation continues, seek medical attention.
Skin Contact: Wash product from skin using soap and water, if irritation continues, seek medical attention.
Inhalation: If exposed to excessive levels of dusts, remove victim to fresh air. Seek medical attention if coughing or
other symptoms persist.
Ingestion: As shipped, product not likely to be ingested; but if it occurs, do not induce vomiting. Seek medical attention.

Product Name: Redart Clay Date: 11/23/05
Fire Fighting Equipment: Fire fighters should wear NIOSH approved, positive pressure, self-contained breathing
apparatus (SCBA) and full protective clothing (bunker gear) when fighting fires.
Hazardous Combustion Products: None
Flame Propagation or Burning Rate of Solid Material: Not Applicable
Flammability Classification (As defined by 29 CFR 1910.1200) Not Flammable
Section 6 鈥? Accidental Release Measures
If dusts are generated during the spill, these should be collected by gently sweeping the material into a dustpan or
collecting with a vacuum device. All personnel engaged in cleanup operations should adhere to the instructions outlined
in Section 8 for personal protection. Disposal of wastes from cleanup operations should be carried out in accordance
with the guidelines outlined in Section 13.
Section 7 鈥? Handling and Storage
Handling: Follow good housekeeping and hygienic practices.
Storage: The product should be stored in a dry location. Pallet protection such as shrink wrap or stretch wrap should be
kept in place until the product is required.
Section 8 鈥? Exposure Control/Personal Protection
Engineering Controls: Process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering process controls may be
necessary to keep any air contaminants associated with this product within their TLV鈥檚. This is particularly true if user
operation generates dust.
Respiratory Protection: This MSDS is prepared to alert customers and other users to the various components of the
product and their relative quantity and toxicity in the product as it is provided. The user must review his/her own
circumstances and then determine what is required to establish a respiratory protection program that meets OSHA
1910.134 requirements. If workplace conditions warrant respiratory protection, use MSHA/NIOSH approved units as
listed in the current 29 DFR 1910.134 for the existing conditions. Some type of respiratory protection is recommend for
even the best conditions. Actual respirator selection should be made after consultation with a competent health and
safety professional.
Eye Protection: Industrial type safety glasses offer some protection, goggles offer more.
Protective Gloves As needed to prevent direct skin contact.
Other Protective Clothing or Equipment: Wear clothing designed to limit direct exposure to product or dusts
associated with product. If clothing becomes contaminated, it should be laundered before wearing again. Maintain good
personal hygiene. Wash hands thoroughly before eating or drinking.
