CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.
Effects of short-term exposure May cause mechanical irritation to the respiratory tract.
Inhalation risk A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure Repeated or prolonged inhalation of dust particles may cause effects on the lungs. This may result in a benign pneumoconiosis (stannosis).
OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
TLV: 2 mg/m3, as TWA. EU-OEL: 2 mg/m3 as TWA
Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur in crustacea and fish.
On heating at 300°C in air, oxidation to stannic oxide proceeds incandescently.
