3 HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW

Non-flammable brown solid or powder. May cause minor eye and skin irritation. Inhalation of

high concentrations may cause transient upper respiratory irritation. Particulate matter may

scratch the eyes.

POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS

EYE: Dust may cause minor irritation. Particulate matter may scratch the cornea or cause 

other mechanical injury to the eye.

SKIN: May cause minor irritation.

INGESTION: Relatively non-toxic. Ingestion is not anticipated under normal working conditions.

INHALATION: Product will act as a nuisance dust. Inhalation of high concentrations of dust may cause coughing and mild, transitory respiratory irritation.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS: Scratching or physical damage to the eyes can cause irritation,

redness, pain, tear formation, blurred vision, and light sensitivity.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Repeated inhalation of dust over time

may aggravate pre-existing respiratory disease.

POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS (continued)

CHRONIC: Long-term dust inhalation in excess of the PEL or TLV may decrease the ability of

the lungs to clear particulate matter which may cause shortness of breath and increased

susceptibility to respiratory disease.

TARGET ORGANS: Lungs

CARCINOGENICITY: NTP: No IARC: No OSHA: No

4. FIRST AID MEASURES

EYE: Flush eyes with lukewarm water for 15 minutes opening and closing eyelids to ensure

adequate rinsing. If redness, irritation, pain, or tearing occurs, seek medical attention.

SKIN: Exposure not anticipated.

INHALATION: Not anticipated. If inhalation of high concentrations occurs, remove to fresh air.

If breathing problems occur, a certified professional should administer oxygen or artificial

respiration as indicated. Seek immediate medical attention.

INGESTION: None required.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

FLAMMABLE PROPERTIES

FLASHPOINT:

Not Applicable

FLAMMABLE LIMITS:

LEL: Not Applicable

UEL: Not Applicable

NFPA CLASSIFICATION:

HEALTH: 0

FLAMMABILITY: 0

INSTABILITY: 0

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Any. Use media appropriate for surrounding fire.

FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Non-flammable, non-combustible. The product will not burn.

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: None

FIRE FIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS: Firefighters should wear a NIOSH approved full-facepiece

self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) operated in positive pressure mode and full turnout

or bunker gear.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Isolate hazard area and deny entry to unauthorized and/or unprotected personnel. Do not walk

through spilled material. Vacuum small amounts. Gently shovel or scoop larger amounts into

the clean dry container for later recycle or disposal. Water mist may be added as necessary to

control the level of airborne dusts. Protective equipment for clean-up personnel depends on the

level of exposure anticipated (See Section 8).

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Store in the dry area in closed containers. Storage and work areas should be periodically cleaned to

minimize dust accumulation. Avoid dust inhalation and promulgation. DO NOT use compressed

air or dry sweeping to remove dust from work area. Dusts should be removed using an

appropriately equipped vacuum. If an appropriate vacuum is unavailable, only wet-clean-up

methods should be used (i.e. wet sweeping, misting, etc.). Moisture should be added as

necessary to reduce exposure to airborne respirable dust.

Under dusty conditions, employees should wear coveralls or other suitable work clothing.

Vacuum dusty clothing before removal.

Practice good housekeeping. Wash thoroughly after handling. Change contaminated clothing.

Do not reuse until laundered.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

RESPIRATORY: Under normal working conditions, below acceptable exposure guidelines, none

is required. For concentrations above the PEL but less than 10 X the PEL, a NIOSH approved

dust mist respirator should be worn. Appropriate respirator selection will be dependent upon

the magnitude of exposure and should be selected in accordance with 29 CFR 1910.134.

SKIN: None required.

EYES: Safety-glasses with side shields or goggles to prevent dust and particles from entering

the eye.

ENGINEERING CONTROLS: General ventilation. Local exhaust and enclosed processes may be

necessary for processes which generate large quantities of airborne dust.

OTHER: None

9. PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES

APPEARANCE:

Brown solid or powder

ODOR:

Odorless

SOLUBILITY IN WATER:

Slight

SPECIFIC GRAVITY (H2O = 1):

3.9

MELTING POINT:

+3600 °F (+ 1980 °C)

pH (10% slurry):

N/A

% VOLATILE

0

TYPES:

Sizes range from 2” to powders

10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY

STABILITY: Stable

REACTIVITY/INCOMPATIBILITY: Aluminum oxide reacts violently with chlorine trifluoride

producing flames. Ethylene oxide polymerizes violently when in contact with pure aluminum

oxide. Aluminum oxide is also incompatible with hot chlorinated rubber, acids, and oxidizers.

DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: None

HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION: Will not occur.

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

EYE: Particulate matter may cause physical injury to the eye.

SKIN: May cause minor irritation.

INHALATION: May cause minor transient respiratory irritation.

INGESTION: Ingestion of large quantities may result in gastrointestinal irritation and eventually

interference with phosphate absorption which results in rickets.

CHRONIC: Many studies indicate that aluminum oxide dust acts as an “inert” material when

inhaled.

SUBCHRONIC: No Data

OTHER: Implantation of aluminum oxide into rats has resulted in tumors at the site of

application. Intrapleural administration of 90 mg/kg aluminum oxide has resulted in tumors of

the lungs, thorax or respiratory system.

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Fused brown alpha alumina is relatively inert. It does not contain ozone depleting substances

and is not expected to exert an ecotoxic effect or bioconcentrate in the food chain.

13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

Dispose of according to applicable federal, state, and local regulations.

14. TRANSPORT INFORMATION

Not Regulated by IMO/IMDG

15. REGULATORY INFORMATION
