Health Hazard Data
LD50-LC50 Mixture: TLV IS 430MG/DAY
Route Of Entry - Inhalation: YES
Route Of Entry - Skin: NO
Route Of Entry - Ingestion: NO
Health Haz Acute And Chronic: ACUTE: EXPOSURE TO MAGNESIUM METAL OR OXIDE DUST SHOULD BE A LOW HEALTH RISK BY INHALATION. EXPOSURE TO MAGNESIUM OXIDE FUMES CAN RESULT IN METAL FUME FEVER. CHRONIC: NONE SPECIFIED BY MANUFACTURER.
Carcinogenicity - NTP: NO
