Iron 7439-89-6 >98%

There are no additional ingredients presented within the current knowledge of the supplier and in the concentration applicable, are classified as hazardous or the environment and hence require reporting in this section.

SECTION 4- FIRST AID MEASURES

Eye Contact: Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 20 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.
Skin Contact: Wash with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.
Inhalation: Move person into fresh air. Get medical attention of breathing difficulty persists.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention if symptoms appear.
Notes to Physician: No specific treatment. Treat symptomatically.

SECTION 5- FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES

Flammability of the product: No specific fire of explosion hazard.

Extinguishing Media

Suitable: Use a fog nozzle to spray water. SEE SPECIAL REMARKS ON FIRE HAZARDS.
Not Suitable: Not known.
Hazardous thermal decomposition products: Decomposition products may include metal oxides or oxides
Special protective equipment for the fire-fighters: No special protection is required.
Special remarks on fire hazards: As with any finely granulated product (i.e. flour) a risk of fire is present should the material be dispersed in air and exposure of source of ignition. Fine powders form flammable and explosive mixtures in air.

 

SECTION 6- ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal Precautions: Immediately contact emergency personnel. Keep unnecessary personnel away. Use suitable protection equipment.

SECTION 8- EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

United States

Ingredient: Iron
Exposure Limits: ACGIH TLV (United States), TWA: 10 mg/m≥

Consult local authorities for acceptable limits.

Recommended Monitoring Procedures: Personal, workplace atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to determine the effectiveness of the ventilation or other control measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory protective equipment.
Engineering Measures: Use only with adequate ventilation.
Hygiene Measures: Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fumes or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.

Personal Protection

Eyes: Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used and selected based on the task being performed and the risks involved (avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists, gases or dusts). Safety glasses are recommended.
Skin: Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task being performed and the risks involved. Recommended: Overalls.
Respiratory: Use a properly fitted; particulate filter respirator complying with an approved standard if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. Respirator selection must be based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safe working limits of the selected respirator.
Hands: Leather gloves are recommended.
Environmental Exposure Controls: Emissions from ventilation or work in the process equipment should be checked to ensure they comply with the requirements of environmental protection legislation.
