BP Light Natural is a native hydrated aluminium silicate, freed from most of its impurities, dried and milled to a fine powder. It does not contain a dispersing agent. The product is tested for chemical and physical properties in the manner defined by the specification of the British Pharmacopoeia 2007. It is also tested for residues retained on a 53 micron sieve, in order to control and identify the trace proportion of material inevitably included during the manufacturing process. It is a light, white powder, free from gritty particles, aromaless and unctuous to the touch. No guarantee of sterility can be provided. The following test limits apply:- Loss on Drying 1.5% max Loss on Ignition 15.0% max Soluble Matter 10 mg max Coarse Particles 25 mg max Fine Particles 70% min Chloride 330 ppm max Arsenic 2 ppm max Heavy Metals 20 ppm max +53 Micron Residue 0.025% max

1. Identification of the Substance/Preparation and the Company/Undertaking

1.1. Identification of the substance or preparation Kaolin synonyms: Kaolin/China Clay

1.2. Use of the Substance / Preparation The substance is used in the manufacture of: Ceramics (sanitary ware, floor tiles, wall tiles, roof tiles, tiles; porcelain, tableware, refractories, etc.) Paper and board Fibreglass Paint Plastic & Rubber Adhesives and Sealant Building material & Cement Animal nutrition Fertilisers & Agricultural products Cosmetics & Pharmaceuticals ?

2. Hazards Identification
Kaolin does not meet the criteria for classification as dangerous as defined in Directive 67/548 EEC. The product does give potential for generation of respirable dust during handling and use. Dust may contain respirable crystalline silica. Prolonged and or massive inhalation of respirable crystalline silica dust may cause lung fibrosis, commonly referred to as silicosis. Principal symptoms of lung fibrosis are cough and breathlessness. Occupational exposure to respirable dust and respirable crystalline silica should be monitored and controlled.

3. Composition/Information on Ingredients

3.1. Chemical composition: Hydrous aluminium silicate - Al2Si2O5(OH)4

3.2 Components: Name % by weight CAS-No EINECS No EU Classification Kaolin 100% 1332-58-7 310-194-1 No classification

3.3. Components presenting a health hazard: Kaolin may contain crystalline silica (not listed in Annex I of Directive 67/548/EEC) in quantity up to 4%. The majority of the crystalline silica is non respirable.

4. First Aid Measures No action to be avoided, nor special instructions for rescuers. Eye contact For direct contact, flush the affected eye with clean water. If irritation develops, seek medical attention. Ingestion No special first aid measure Inhalation Remove from source to fresh air. If symptoms occur, seek medical attention Skin contact Wash with soap and water, rinse after washing

5. Fire Fighting Measures
Non flammable, non explosive. No hazardous releases in case of fire.

6. Accidental Release Measures Personal precautions In case of exposure to prolonged or high level of airborne dust, wear a personal respirator in compliance with national legislation. Environmental precautions No special requirement Methods for cleaning up Avoid dry sweeping and use water spraying or ventilated vacuum system to prevent dust formation.

7. Handling and Storage

7.1. Safe Handling Advice No special handling precautions are required. Good housekeeping and dust prevention procedures should be followed to minimise dust generation and accumulation. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Kaolin may be handled with bare hands without the use of gloves however gloves are recommended to prevent drying of skin. An apron may be worn to minimize exposure to the body.

7.2. Storage No specific requirements. Provide appropriate ventilation and store bags such as to prevent any accidental damage. Prevent bags from being wet with drenching amounts of water to maintain the packaging integrity.

7.3. Specific Use(s) No special technical measures or precautions. Apply above handling advice when mixing with other substances.

8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

8.1. Exposure limit values Respect regulatory provisions for dust (total and respirable), and for respirable crystalline silica dust. Please refer to the appropriate national exposure limit values.

8.2. Exposure controls 8.2.1. OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE CONTROLS Use local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations of dust below permissible exposure levels. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of the workday. Remove and wash soiled clothing.
Respiratory protection

In case of prolonged exposure to dust wear a personal respirator in compliance with national legislation 8.2.2. ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE CONTROLS No special requirement

9.Physical and Chemical Properties 9.1. General information Physical state Solid (bulk, lumps, pellets, granulates or powder) Colour Varied Aroma Aromaless

11. Toxicological Information

11.1 Acute effects Skin irritation data No irritation to skin Eye irritation data Mild irritant to eyes

11.2 Chronic effects Prolonged inhalation of respirable crystalline silica In 1997, IARC (the International Agency for Research on Cancer) concluded that crystalline silica inhaled from occupational sources can cause lung cancer in humans. However it pointed out that not all industrial circumstances, nor all crystalline silica types, were to be incriminated. (IARC Monographs on the evaluation of the carcinogenic risks of chemicals to humans, Silica, silicates dust and organic fibres, 1997, Vol. 68, IARC, Lyon, France.) In June 2003, SCOEL (the EU Scientific Committee on Occupational Exposure Limits) concluded that the main effect in humans of the inhalation of respirable crystalline silica dust is silicosis. “There is sufficient information to conclude that the relative risk of lung cancer is increased in persons with silicosis (and, apparently, not in employees without silicosis exposed to silica dust in quarries and in the ceramic industry). Therefore preventing the onset of silicosis will also reduce the cancer risk…“ (SCOEL SUM Doc 94-final, June 2003)
There is a body of evidence supporting the fact that increased cancer risk would be limited to people already suffering from silicosis. Worker protection against silicosis should be assured by respecting
the existing regulatory occupational exposure limits and implementing additional risk management measures where required.

12. Ecological Information No specific adverse effect known. Not persistent, not bioaccumulative.

13. Disposal Considerations Waste from residues / unused products Can be landfilled in compliance with local regulations. The material should be buried to prevent airborne respirable dust being emitted. Where possible, recycling should be preferred to disposal.

Packaging No specific requirements. In all cases dust formation from residues in the packaging should be avoided and suitable worker protection be assured. Recycling and disposal of packaging should be carried out by a suitable waste management company

14. Transport Information No special precaution required under the regulation on transport of dangerous goods. Avoid dust spreading.

15. Regulatory Information National legislation/requirements: Refer to the regulatory exposure limits for workforce in force in each country. The product, nor any of the by-minerals contained, have not been classified at the EU level, under the dangerous substances and preparations regulation.

16. Other Information Training Workers must be informed of the presence of crystalline silica and trained in the proper use and handling of this product as required under applicable regulations.
Social Dialogue on Respirable Crystalline Silica
A multi-sectoral social dialogue agreement on Workers Health Protection through the Good Handling and Use of Crystalline Silica and Products Containing it was signed on 25 April 2006. This autonomous agreement, which receives the European Commission’s financial support, is based on a Good Practices Guide. The requirements of the Agreement came into force on 25 October 2006. The Agreement was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (2006/C 279/02). The text of the Agreement and its annexes, including the Good Practices Guide, are available from and provide useful information and guidance for the handling of products containing respirable crystalline silica. ...
