3. Composition/Information on Ingredients
Ingredient: Calcium Hydroxide or Slaked Lime or Hydrated Lime
CAS No.: 1305-62-0 99
4. First Aid Measures
Always seek medical advice after the first aid treatment.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician immediately.
Ingestion: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Give large quantities of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Call a physician immediately.
Skin Contact: In case of contact with Calcium Hydroxide or Slaked Lime , wipe off excess material from skin then immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Call a physician immediately.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with gentle but large stream of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Call a physician immediately.
5. Fire Fighting Measures
Fire: Calcium Hydroxide or Slaked Lime is not considered to be a fire hazard. Use any means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire.
Explosion: Not considered to be an explosion hazard.
Fire Extinguishing Media: Use any means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire.
Special Information: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and clothing.
6. Accidental Release Measures
Ventilate area of leak or spill. Keep unnecessary and unprotected people away from area of spill. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.
Spills: Pick up and place in a suitable container for reclamation or disposal, using a method that does not generate dust. Do not flush caustic residues to the sewer. Carefully pick up solid with minimum of dusting and collect in metal container with covers with disposal. The trace amount of residue of Calcium Hydroxide or Slaked Lime can be flushed down drain.
7. Handling and Storage
Keep Calcium Hydroxide or Slaked Lime in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage. Isolate from incompatible substances. Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids). Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing. Wash thoroughly after handling. Store away from acids.
8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Airborne Exposure Limits: -OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL):
15 mg/m3 (total dust), 5 mg/m3 (respirable fraction)
-ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): 5 mg/m3
CALCIUM HYDROXIDE (LIME) WEL (Work Place Exposure Limit) 5 mg/m3
Ventilation System: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures below the Airborne 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.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): If the exposure limit is exceeded and engineering controls are not feasible, a full face piece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filters) may be worn for up to 50 times the exposure limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest. If oil particles (e.g. lubricants, cutting fluids. glycerin, etc.) are present, use a NIOSH type R or P filter. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face piece positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
Skin Protection: Wear impervious protective clothing, including boots, gloves, lab coat, apron or coveralls, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact.
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.
