1) Product Identification:

   Synonyme: Silica, Amorphous; Silicic Acid; Amorphous Silicon Dioxide, Lithium Chloride

2) Composition/Information on Ingredients

Ingredient: CAS No
Silica, Amorphous SiO2 7631.86.9
Lithium Chloride: LiCl 7447.41.8

3) Hazards Identification:

Emergency Overview: Affects respiratory system, causes irritation to eyes
Potential Health Effects  
Inhalation: May cause dryness and irritations to mucous m membrane, nose and thoat. Symptoms may include coughing, sore throat, dyspnea, wheezing, and non-specific chest illnesses.
Ingestion: No adverse effects expected.
Skin Contact: May cause irritation with dryness and abrasion.
Eye Contact: Causes irritation, redness and pain.
Chronic Exposure: Repeated exposure may cause symptoms similar to the effects on the above.
Aggravation of Pre-existing Conditions: No information found.

4) First Aid Measures:

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Get medical attention for any breathing difficulty.
Ingestion: Give several glasses of water to dilute, If large amounts were swallowed, get medical advice.
Skin Contact: Wash exposed area with soap and water. Get medical advice if irritation develops.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention immediately.

5) Fire Fighting Measures:

Fire: Not considered to be a fire hazard.
Explosion: Not considered to be an explosion hazard.
Fire Extinguishing Media: Use any means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire.
Special Information: Use protective clothing and breathing equipment appropriate for the surrounding fire.

6) Accidental Release Measures:

If its use requires manual handling, wear long sleeves and close-weave cotton gloves with tight-fitting wristlets.
If dusty conditions prevail, collects in an empty container with no dispersion, and wipe off, suck up under the place without a wind. Watch your step.

7) Handling and Storage:

Keep in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry ventilated area. Protect against physical damage. Take precautions a static electric spark. Isolate from incompatible substances. Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautions listed for this product.

8) Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Airborne Exposure Limits:

Amorphous Silica:

    OSHA Silica gel - PEL - 6mg/m3

    ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): 10 mg/m3; TWA: inhalable particulate: 3 mg/m3 (TWA) respirable particulate

Lithium Chloride:

No OSHA vacated PELs are listed for this chemical

Ventilation System:

A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures below the Aitborne exposure Limits. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.

Personal Respirators:

If its use requires manual handling, wear log sleeves and close-weave cotton gloves with tight-fitting wristlets. If dusty conditions prevail, use of an approved NIOSH / MSHA dust respirator is recommended. Wear googles if dust causes eye discomfort.

Skin Protection:

Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.

Eye Protection:

Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
