Skin: Contact with skin may cause irritation Inhalation: Dusts of this product may cause irritation to the nose, throat or respiratory tract. Ingestion: Highly unlikely, but would result in irritation of the digestive tract if inhaled. Section Four: First Aid Measures.  Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If breathing is labored, give oxygen and/or artificial respiration. Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with low-pressure water for 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention if irritation persists. Skin Contact: In case of irritation, flush with water. Ingestion: Not applicable Section Five: Fire-Fighting Measures NFPA  Flash Point: Not Applicable 1 Auto-Ignition Temperature: Variable with exposure to 212 degrees F or less 1 0 Explosive Limits in Air: 40 grams/M (LEL) --  Extinguishing Media: Water, CO2, Sand Special Fire-Fighting Procedures: Water to wet dust and reduce likelihood of ignition or dispersion of dust into the air. Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazard: Wood dust is strong to severe explosion hazard if dust cloud contacts an ignition source. Section Six: Accidental Release Measures.  Spill/Leak Procedures: Sweep or vacuum spills. Avoid creating dust conditions. Provide good ventilation where dust may accumulate. Place recovered wood dust in disposal containers. Section Seven: Handling and Storage  Handling Precautions: Handle in accordance with traditional hygiene and safety practices.

Clean clothing thoroughly before re- use. Section Nine: Physical and Chemical Properties.  Appearance Light to dark colored solid. Odor: Varies with species. Odor Threshold: Not applicable. Vapor Pressure: Not applicable. Vapor Density (Air=1). Not applicable. Specific Gravity (H20=1 at 4 degrees C): Variable, depending upon wood type. pH: Not applicable. Water Solubility: Insoluble, although all species will absorb and emit moisture. Section Ten: Stability and Reactivity  Stability: Stable at room temperatures in closed containers under normal storage/handling conditions. Polymerization: Hazardous polymerization will not occur. Conditions to avoid: Heat and open flames. Hazardous decomposition Products: Thermal oxidative decomposition can produce CO and CO2. Section Eleven: Toxicological Information.: Carcinogenicity  IARC has classified wood dust as a carcinogen to humans. (Group One). This classification is based primarily on IARC’s evaluation of increased risk in the occurrence of adenocarcinomas of the nasal cavities and para nasal sinuses associated with exposure to wood dust. IARC did not find sufficient evidence to associate cancers of the oropharynx, hypopharynx, lung, lmphatic and hematopoietic systems, stomach, colon or rectum with exposure to wood dust. Section Twelve: Ecological Information. No known evidence of adverse effects. Section Thirteen: Disposal Considerations: Use safety containers for disposal. Contact your supplies or a licensed contractor for detailed recommendation. Follow applicable Federal state and local regulations.
