EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!

 •INHALATION Cough.
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN
Protective gloves.
Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
 •EYES
Safety goggles.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
Reacts violently with strong reducing agents .

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: (as Sn, oxide and inorganic compounds, except tin hydride) 2 mg/m as TWA; (ACGIH 2004).
EU OEL: (Tin inorganic compounds, as Sn) 2 mg/m as TWA; (EU 2004).
OSHA PEL: none
NIOSH REL: TWA 2 mg/m3
NIOSH IDLH: N.D. See: IDLH INDEX


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:


INHALATION RISK:
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
May cause mechanical irritation to the respiratory tract.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Lungs may be affected by repeated or prolonged exposure to dust particles, resulting in a benign pneumoconiosis (stannosis).
