Inhalation causes irritation to the res piratory tract. Symptoms can include sore throat, cough.
First aid. Remove victim from the source and seek medical attention from a physician immediately.

Arsenic trioxide:
Routes of entry: Inhalation of fumes, Ingestion.
This is considered to be a human carcinogen by ACGIH
Acute ingestion symptoms include constriction of throat, epigastric pain, vomiting and diarrhea. If severe exposure shock may develop due to fluid loss.
Chronic ingestion exposure symptoms include weight loss, nausea, loss of hair, diarrhea, peripheral neuritis.
Acute inhalation symptoms include cough, chest pain, dyspnea, headache, giddiness and general weakness.
Chronic inhalation includes weakness, loss of appetite, nausea, diarrhea, perforation of nasal septum, skin lesions, peripheral neuritis, motor paralysis.
First aid: remove victim from source and seek medical attention from Physician immediately.

Barium oxide:
Routes of entry: Inhalation and Ingestion.
Ingestion of bariom increases muscle contractability, slowed heart rate, vascular constriction, bladder contraction, increased muscle tension.
Inhalation of dust may cause benign pneumoconiosis. Acute exposure may cause local eye, nose, throat and skin irritation.
First aid: Remove victim from source and seek medical attention immediately.

Boron oxide:
Routes of entry: Ingestion, inhalation of fumes.
When heated decomposition produces toxic fume. Can cause vomiting, diarrhea, shock.
First aid: Remove victim from source and seek medical attention from physician immediately.

Cadmium oxide/sulphide:
Routes of entry: Inhalation and Ingestion.
Cadmium is an OSHA/WISHA regulated cancer causing agent. Causes lung cancer and liver damage.
Acute inhalation symptoms include slight irritation of upper respiratory tract, followed by cough, sweating, chills. Severe exposure may involve pulmonary irritation, pain in chest, dyspnea, weakness. May develop emphysema.
Chronic exposure may cause lung damage increased risk of lung cancer and kidney damage.
First aid. Remove victim from source and seek medical attention from a physician immediately.

Calcium oxide:
Routes of exposure: Inhalation and Ingestion
Bronchitis and pneumonia have been reported from inhalation of dust

Cobalt oxide:
Routes of entry: Inhalation and Ingestion.
This is a confirmed animal carcinogen with unknown relevance to humans by ACGIH
Is not regulated by OSHA as a carcinogen.
Cobalt dust is irritating to eyes and skin. May cause allergic sensitivity dermatitis. Cross sensitization occurs between cobalt, nickel and chromium. Inhalation of dust may cause asthma like disease with cough and dyspnea. May progress to interstitial pneumonia with fibrosis.
Ingestion of cobalt causes vomiting, diarrhea, sensations of hotness.
First aid: Remove victim from source and seek medical attention from physician immediately.

Cupric oxide:
Routes of entry: Inhalation and Ingestion.
Inhalation of the dust causes irritation to respiratory tract, symptoms may include coughing, sore throat, and shortness of breath. When heated may give off copper fume which can cause symptoms similar to the common cold, including chills and stuffiness to the head.
Ingestion can cause systemic copper poisoning. Symptoms may include capillary damage, headache weak pulse, kidney and liver damage.
First aid: Remove victim from source and seek medical attention from physician immediately.

Fluorides:
Routes of Entry: Inhalation, Ingestion and Skin absorption.
Acute exposure to fluorine dust, mists or fumes may cause irritation to the eyes, skin, mucous membranes and lungs. When heated to decomposition emits toxic fumes of fluoride.
Chronic exposure to fume, mist, and dust may cause nosebleeds, pulmonary edema bronchospasm.
Ingestion of fluorides may cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.
First aid: Remove victim from source and seek medical attention from physician immediately .

Iron oxide:
Routes of Exposure: Ingestion and Inhalation
Inhalation of iron fumes may cause a benign pneumoconiosis.

Lead oxide:
Routes of Entry: Ingestion and Inhalation
Acute exposure can cause lead encaphalthy seizures, coma and death.
Chronic exposure may cause damage to male and female reproductive organs. Signs of exposure include loss of appetite, abdominal pain, headaches, nausea, joint pain, insomnia, fatigue. May also cause damage to central nervous system. May cause kidney damage without any symptomology. May disrupt blood forming causing anemia.
First aid: Remove victim from source and seek medical attention from physician immediately.

Manganese oxide:
Routes of Entry: Ingestion and Inhalation
Inhalation can cause a flu-like illness (metal fume fever) This 24-48 hour illness is characterized by chills, fever, dryness in the mouth and throat and headache.
Ingestion may cause abdominal pain and nausea.
First aid: Remove victim from source and seek medical attention from physician immediately.

Nickel oxide:
Routes of entry: Inhalation and Ingestion
Skin sensitization frequently occurs with exposure to nickel and nickel compounds resulting in eczema.
Acute exposure may cause irritation of the conjunctive and mucous membrane of the upper respiratory tract.
First aid: Remove victim from source and seek medical attention from physician immediately.

Selenium:
Routes of Entry: Ingestion and Inhalation
Some compounds of selenium are strong irritants to upper respiratory tract and the eyes. Is capable of antagonizing toxic effects of other metals, such as As and Cd
Inhalation of fumes may cause irritation of the nose, eye, upper respiratory tract and tightness of the chest. Severe exposure may cause pulmonary edema. May have garlic odor in breath, metallic taste in mouth, pallor, lassitude, giddiness.
First aid: Remove victim from source and seek medical attention from physician immediately.

Silica oxide:
Route of entry: Inhalation
Chronic exposure can cause silicosis, a restrictive pulmonary fibrosis disease.

Uranium oxide:
Routes of Entry: Ingestion and Inhalation
Uranium compounds emit weakly radioactive alpha particles which cannot pass though the skin but can enter the body through inhalation or ingestion as dust. Avoid inhalation of fine dust. Systemic poisoning signs are nausea vomiting and diarrhea.
First aid: Remove victim from source and seek medical attention from physician immediately.

Zinc oxide:
Routes of entry: Inhalation and Ingestion.
Acute exposure to fumes may cause “metal fume fever”, manifested by chills, fever, chest tightness, cough, dyspnea, fatigue and joint pain.
First aid: Remove victim from source and provide fresh air. Fume fever will last 24-48 hours.

 

SECTION VII  -  PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE

Steps to be taken in case of spill: Sweep up broken glass-vacuum area. In case of spill of powder should use   HEPA filter on vacuum, wet wash, wipe area.
Waste disposal method:  General refuse
Precautions to be taken in handling and storing:  Product should be stored in stable location to prevent breakage or spillage.
Other precautions: Molten products should be handled with due caution by trained individuals.

 

SECTION VIII  -  CONTROL MEASURES

Respiratory protection: When grinding or handling powders or fine frit or working around molten products should use NIOSH approved respirator with P-100 filters.
Ventilation: Local exhaust when grinding or working with molten product.
Protective gloves: As needed for cuts or burns as conditions warrant.
Eye Protection: Recommended when grinding, breaking rod or working with molten product.
Other protective equipment: Aprons or protective overalls recommended when handling bulk powders.
