Section 11 - Toxicological Information

Perlite is a natural volcanic mineral composed of sodium potassium aluminum silicate. OSHA has classified Perlite as a Particulate Not Otherwise Regulated (PNOR), which has the same Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) as that used for nuisance and inert dusts. Although there are no published reports of adverse health effect from exposure to Perlite dust, dust levels should be maintained below the OSHA PEL for PNORs and respirators should be used when air borne dust is present. Excessive inhalation over long periods of time may cause harmful irritation. Perlite is considered a nuisance dust by ACGIH.



Section 12 - Ecological Information

Inert to the environment. No adverse environmental impact.
