Section 4: First Aid Measures
Eye Contact:
Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15
minutes. Cold water may be used. WARM water MUST be used. Get medical attention.
p. 1
Skin Contact:
In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Remove contaminated
clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention.
Serious Skin Contact:
Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek immediate medical
attention.
Inhalation:
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical
attention.
Serious Inhalation:
Evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If
breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Seek medical
attention.
Ingestion:
Do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious
person. If large quantities of this material are swallowed, call a physician immediately. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar,
tie, belt or waistband.
Serious Ingestion: Not available.

Section 6: Accidental Release Measures
Small Spill: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container.
Large Spill:
Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal container. Be careful that the product is not present at a
concentration level above TLV. Check TLV on the MSDS and with local authorities.
Section 7: Handling and Storage
Precautions:
Do not ingest. Do not breathe dust. Wear suitable protective clothing. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable
respiratory equipment. If ingested, seek medical advice immediately and show the container or the label. Avoid contact with
skin and eyes. Keep away from incompatibles such as acids.
p. 2
Storage: Keep container tightly closed. Keep container in a cool, well-ventilated area.
Section 8: Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
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.
Personal Protection:
Splash goggles. Lab coat. Dust respirator. Be sure to use an approved/certified respirator or equivalent. Gloves.
Personal Protection in Case of a Large Spill:
Splash goggles. Full suit. Dust respirator. Boots. Gloves. A self contained breathing apparatus should be used to avoid
inhalation of the product. Suggested protective clothing might not be sufficient; consult a specialist BEFORE handling this
product.
Exposure Limits:
TWA: 0.5 (mg(Ba)/m) from ACGIH (TLV) [United States] Consult local authorities for acceptable exposure limits.

Special Remarks on other Toxic Effects on Humans:
Acute Potential Health Effects: Skin: May cause skin irritation. Eyes: May cause eye irritation. Inhalation: May cause
respiratory tract irritation. May cause benign pneumoconiosis (baritosis). This is not incapacitating and is usually reversible
with cessation of exposure. Inhalation may have similar systemic effects as ingestion since Barium Carbonate is cleared
from the lungs into the blood stream. Ingestion: Harmful of swallowed. May affect behavior/central nervous system/peripheral
nervous system, gastrointestinal system, respiration, cardiovascular system, and kidneys. Symptoms may include: weakness,
nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hypermotility, excessive salivation, colic, convulsive tremors, giddiness, dilated pupils, increased
blood pressure, heart palpitations, hemorrhages in the gastrointestinal tract and kidneys, muscular paralysis, dryness of
mouth, thirst, sweating, tingling around the mouth and neck, tightness in the throat, respiratory depression, dysarthria,
headaches, muscle twitching, urinary retention, testicular tenderness. May also cause hypokalemia with associated
electrocardiogram changes. Serious cases may result in convulsions and death. Chronic Potential Health Effects: Inhalation:
Prlonged inhalation may cause benign pneumoconiosis (baritosis).
