EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT!

  • INHALATION
  • Cough.
    Local exhaust or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest.
  • SKIN

  • Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
  • EYES
  • Redness.
    Safety goggles.

    CHEMICAL DANGERS:


    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV (as Cr): ppm; 0.01 mg/m3 A1 (ACGIH 1992-1993).


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion.

    INHALATION RISK:
    Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed.

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    Inhalation of dust may cause irritation.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. Repeated or prolonged inhalation exposure may cause asthma. Repeated or prolonged exposure may cause nasal ulceration. This substance is carcinogenic to humans. May cause genetic damage in humans.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Relative density (water = 1): 3.4
    Solubility in water: none
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to water organisms.
    NOTES
    The term zinc chromate is also used to refer to a wide range of commercial zinc and zinc potassium chromates. Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is indicated.
