Apart from the uses mentioned in section 1.2, no other specific uses are stipulated.

Section 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

8.1 Control parameters/exposure limits
NIOSH REL : TWA 6 mg/m3
OSHA PEL : TWA 20 mppcf (80 mg/m3/%SiO2)

8.2 Appropriate engineering controls
Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fume or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limit. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday. Facilities storing or handling this material should be equipped with an eyewash station.

8.3 Personal protective equipment
Safety glasses, lab coat, gloves, and dust respirator. Be sure to use an NIOSH approved respirator or equivalent.
