1. FEATURES & BENEFITS

• Requires only the addition of water
• Excellent pumpability
• All KING products are manufactured using ISO 9001:2015 Certified Processes

2. USES

• Construction of concrete floor slabs, walls, grizzlies, door frames and other underground concrete structures

3. PROCEDURES

Mixing: Mix material at a maximum water:cement ratio of 0.5 [100 L (26.5 US gallons) per 1,000 KG (2,205 lb) bag]. Maximum slump should be 100 mm (4 inches). For mixing instructions, follow recommendations of concrete mixer manufacturer.

Placing: Place material uniformly and consolidate by vibrating. Ensure material has completely encapsulated any rebar or welded wire mesh. Refer to ACI 304 R “Guide for Measuring, Mixing, Transporting and Placing Concrete”. Any formwork should be rigid and tight to prevent loss of material. For forming applications, refer to ACI 347, “Recommended Practice for Concrete Formwork”.

4. CURING

Good curing conditions are beneficial to optimizing physical properties. Although the high relative humidity commonly found in underground environments provides for good curing conditions, additional curing is often appropriate and should be performed in accordance with ACI 308 “Standard Practice for Curing Concrete”.

SECTION 2: HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

Potential Health Effects

Route of Exposure Inhalation; ingestion; skin contact; eye contact.
Inhalation Exposure to airborne concentrations above exposure limits may cause irritation of the nose, throat and lungs.
Skin Contact May cause dry skin, discomfort and irritation. Repeated or prolonged exposure can irritate or burn the skin.
Eye Contact Airborne dust may cause immediate or delayed irritation or inflammation. Contact causes severe burns with redness, swelling, pain and blurred vision. Permanent damage including blindness can result.
Effects of Long-Term (Chronic) Exposure Risk of injury depends on duration and level of exposure. This product contains crystalline silica. Prolonged or repeated inhalation of the respirable crystalline silica can cause silicosis, a seriously disabling and potentially fatal lung disease. See Section 4 for further information.
Carcinogenicity CARCINOGEN. Known to cause: lung cancer.

SECTION 3: COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS

Chemical Name CAS Registry No. Concentration % Other Identifiers
Silica, total quartz 14808-60-7 60-100%
Portland cement 65997-15-1 10-30%

Notes Other additives not controlled through WHMIS or other legislation.

SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES

First Aid Procedures

Inhalation Move victim to fresh air. Seek medical attention for discomfort or if coughing or other symptoms do not subside.
Skin Contact Quickly take off contaminated clothing, shoes and leather goods (e.g. watchbands, belts). Wash gently and thoroughly with lukewarm, gently flowing water and non-abrasive soap for 5 minutes.
Eye Contact Immediately flush the contaminated eye(s) with lukewarm, gently flowing water for 15-20 minutes, while holding the eyelid(s) open. If irritation or pain persists, see a doctor.
Ingestion NEVER give anything by mouth if victim is rapidly losing consciousness, or is unconscious or convulsing. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Immediately call a Poison Centre or doctor.

Note to Physicians     Additional Notes – Silicosis – There are three (3) types of silicosis:

1) Simple chronic silicosis – which results from long-term exposure (more than 20 years) to low amounts of respirable crystalline silica. Nodules of chronic inflammation and scarring provoked by the respirable crystalline silica form in the lungs and chest lymph nodes. This disease may feature breathlessness and may resemble chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

2) Accelerated silicosis – occurs after exposure to larger amounts of respirable crystalline silica over a shorter period of time (5-15 years). Inflammation, scarring, and symptoms progress faster in accelerated silicosis than in simple silicosis.

3) Acute silicosis – results from short-term exposure to very large amounts of respirable crystalline silica. The lungs become very inflamed and may fill with fluid, causing severe shortness of breath and low blood oxygen levels.

Progressive massive fibrosis may occur in simple or accelerated silicosis, but is more common in the accelerated form. Progressive massive fibrosis results from severe scarring and leads to the destruction of normal lung structures.

SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Flammable Properties Does not burn.
Suitable Extinguishing Media Not combustible. Use extinguishing agent suitable for surrounding fire.
Specific Hazards Arising from the Chemical None known.
Protective Equipment and Precautions for Firefighters Quartz is a carcinogen and chronic inhalation hazard. Firefighters may enter the area if positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (NIOSH approved or equivalent) and full Bunker Gear is worn. Wash down contaminated Bunker gear with water to remove any quartz fibres.

SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal Precautions Use the Personal Protective Equipment recommended in Section 8 of this MSDS. Restrict access to area until completion of clean up. Ensure clean-up is conducted by trained personnel wearing appropriate respiratory protection and chemical protective clothing.
Environmental Precautions Do not allow into any sewer, on the ground or into any waterway.
Methods for Containment and Clean-up Avoid dry sweeping. If necessary, use a dust suppressant such as water. Do not use compressed air for clean-up. Allow material to dry or solidify before disposal. Collect using shovel/scoop or approved HEPA vacuum and place in a suitable container for disposal. Dike and recover contaminated water for appropriate disposal. Flush area with water.

SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE

Handling Only use where there is adequate ventilation. Avoid generating dusts. Good housekeeping is extremely important. Prevent dust accumulation on ALL surfaces including ceiling rafters and other hidden surfaces. Bagged product is heavy and poses risks such as sprains and strains to the back, the arms, the shoulders and the legs during lifting and mixing.

Storage Store in an area that is: dry. Store in the original, labelled, shipping container. Prevent dust build-up on ALL surfaces. Clean frequently. Avoid dry-sweeping. Use vacuum cleaner equipped with high efficiency filter. Keep away from food and drinking water.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Eye/Face Protection Do not get in eyes. Wear chemical safety goggles and face shield when contact is possible.
Skin Protection Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task being performed. This includes gloves, coveralls and footwear. Approved gloves should be worn based on risk assessments.
Respiratory Protection Use of an approved respirator, based on a risk assessment is necessary. Respiratory protection should be selected based on the known or anticipated levels of exposure, and the work being performed.
