Section 3 - Hazards Identification

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW

Appearance: white. Caution! May cause eye and skin irritation. May cause respiratory tract irritation. This is expected to be a low hazard for usual industrial handling.
Target Organs: None.


Potential Health Effects
Eye: May cause eye irritation.
Skin: May cause mild skin irritation. Low hazard for usual industrial handling.
Ingestion: Low hazard for usual industrial handling.
Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation. Low hazard for usual industrial handling.
Chronic: No information found.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures


Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. If irritation develops, get medical aid.
Skin: Get medical aid if irritation develops or persists. Flush skin with plenty of soap and water.
Ingestion: If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Get medical aid if irritation or symptoms occur.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid if cough or other symptoms appear.
Notes to Physician: No specific antidote exists. Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures


General Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Dusts at sufficient concentrations can form explosive mixtures with air.
Extinguishing Media: For small fires, use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or chemical foam.

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures


General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks: Sweep up, then place into a suitable container for disposal. Avoid generating dusty conditions.

Section 7 - Handling and Storage


Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid ingestion and inhalation.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.

Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection


Engineering Controls: Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below the permissible exposure limits.
Exposure Limits

Starch 10 mg/m3 TWA total: 10 mg/m3 TWA; respirable dust: 5 mg/m3 TWA 15 mg/m3 TWA (total dust); 5 mg/m3 TWA (respirable fraction)

OSHA Vacated PELs: Starch: total dust: 15 mg/m3 TWA; respirable fraction: 5 mg/m3 TWA
Personal Protective Equipment
Eyes: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166.
Skin: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure.
Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to minimize contact with skin.
Respirators: Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Always use a NIOSH or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator when necessary.
