216-643-7 100% 1633-05-2
  EINECS PERCENT CAS NO:

4.) FIRST AID MEASURES
 
Inhalation
Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention. Flush mouth and nasal passages with water as much as possible.
Skin Contact
Wash exposed area with soap and water. Get medical advice if irritation develops.
Eye Contact
Wash thoroughly with running water. Get medical advice if irritation develops.
Ingestion Contact
Have victim drink one tablespoon of Epsom Salts (magnesium sulfate) or Glauber's Salt (sodium sulfate) dissolved in water. If victim is not vomiting, induce vomiting by giving Syrup of Ipecac or by sticking finger down throat. If large amounts were swallowed, give water to drink and get medical advice.

5.) FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
 
Extinguishing Media
Use any means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures
Not considered to be a fire hazard.
Fire and Explosion Hazzards
Not considered to be an explosion hazard.
Hazardous Combustion Products
None
Protective Measure in Fire
In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.

6.) ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
 
Personal Precaution in Spill
Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8.
Environment
Ventilate area of leak or spill.
Spill Clean Up
Sweep up and containerize for reclamation or disposal. Vacuuming or wet sweeping may be used to avoid dust.

7.) HANDLING AND STORAGE
 
Usage Precautions
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust if formed
Usage Descriptions
Non-applicable
Storage Precautions
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place
Handling Precautions
Keep in tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage. Isolate from acids and alkalis. Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product.

8.) EXPOSURE CONTORLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
 
Protective Equipment
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. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.
Process Conditions
OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL): 15 mg/m3 total dust, 5 mg/m3 respirable fraction for nuisance dusts. ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): 10 mg/m3 total dust containing no asbestos and <1% crystalline silica for Particulates Not Otherwise Classified (PNOC).
Respirators
If the exposure limit is exceeded and engineering controls are not feasible, a half face piece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95 or better filters) may be worn for up to 10 times the exposure limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest. A full-face piece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filters) may be worn 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, glycerine, 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.
Protective Gloves
Wear protective gloves
Eye Protection
Wear safety glasses. Use chemical goggles if excessive dust is present. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Protection
Wear clean body-covering clothing.
Hygienic Work Practices
No information found.

10.) STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
 
Stability
Stable under ordinary conditions of use and storage.
Hazardous Decomp Products
May produce oxides of carbon and contained metal.
Conditions to Avoid
Incompatible with acids because it decomposes releasing carbon dioxide gas.

11.) TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
 
Toxic Dose LD 50
No information found relating to normal routes of occupational exposure.
Toxicological Info
Strontium exhibits very low toxicity; Strontium Chloride Oral Rat LD50 = 2250 mg/kg. Barium Carbonate Oral Rat LD50 = 418 mg/kg; further information is given in National Toxicology Program TR 432, NIH Pub. No. 94-3163.
Inhalation
No data. Expected to be similar to above data.
Skin
No data. Not expected to be absorbed through intact skin.
Eyes
No data. Believe to be a mild irritant.
Medical Symptoms
High doses of strontium carbonate may adversely affect bone mineralization - see EPA's IRIS database.

12.) ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
 
Toxicity
No data found
Distribution
The element strontium is widely distributed in the natural environment.
Chemical Fate
Slowly converted to strontium sulfate because of sulfate availability in the environment.

13.) DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
 
Disposal Methods
Whatever cannot be saved for recovery or recycling should be managed in an appropriate and approved waste disposal facility. Processing, use or contamination of this product may change the waste management options. State and local disposal regulations may differ from federal disposal regulations. Dispose of container and unused contents in accordance with federal, state and local requirements.
