Trade Name: DiaRoot BioAggregate MSDS DiaDent Group International DiaRoot MSDS 01/07 Page 2 of 4 3 – Health Hazards Identification 4 - First Aid Measures Routes of Entry Effects Routes of Entry First Aid Treatment Eyes Exposure to airborne dry powder or splashes of moist DiaRoot BioAggregate material may cause immediate or delayed effects ranging from eye irritation or inflammation to chemical burns and in severe instances, blindness. Eyes Immediately flush eyes thoroughly with running water for at least 15 minutes, including under the upper and lower eyelids to remove all particles. Seek medical aid. Skin • Exposure to the dry powder and /or moist DiaRoot BioAggregate material may cause discomfort or pain and may cause a delayed response, and therefore cannot be relied upon to alert a person to a hazardous skin exposure. • Exposure may cause irritation, drying, cracking or fissuring of the skin. Prolonged exposure can cause severe skin damage in the form of chemical (caustic) burns. Skin Flush skin thoroughly with running water and pH-neutral skin soap or a mild detergent for at least 15 minutes. Remove any contaminated clothes and shoes. Seek medical aid if irritation or inflammation develops or persists. Seek immediate medical aid in the event of burns. Inhalation Exposure may cause irritation to the moist mucus membranes of the nose, throat and upper respiratory system. Pre-existing upper respiratory and lung diseases may be aggravated. The effects may cause delayed lung injury. Inhalation Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. Immediately seek medical aid if breathing is difficult, coughing persists or not breathing. Ingestion Exposure may cause internal discomfort or irritation to the digestive tract. Ingestion Do not induce vomiting. If conscious, have the victim drink plenty of water. Immediately seek medical aid. Emergency Information DiaRoot BioAggregate Root Canal Repair Material is a white powder and when it is in contact with moisture in eyes or on skin, or when mixed with water, DiaRoot BioAggregate becomes highly caustic (pH >12) and will damage or burn (as severely as third-degree) the eyes or skin. Inhalation may cause irritation to the moist mucous membranes of the nose, throat and upper respiratory system or may cause or aggravate certain lung diseases or conditions. Use personal protection methods described in Section 8. Carcinogenic Potential Although the components used to manufacture DiaRoot BioAggregate Root Canal Repair Material are not listed as carcinogens by NTP. OSHA or IARC; it may, however contain trace amounts of substances recognized as carcinogens by these organizations. 5 - Fire Fighting Measures Conditions of Flammability: None Auto-ignition Temperature: Not combustible.

Hazardous Combustion Products: None Flash Point: None Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: None Upper Flammable Limit: None Danger of Explosion: None Lower Flammable Limit: None Special Fire Fighting Procedures: None National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Ratings Health: 1 Reactivity: 0 Flammability: 0 Personal Protective Equipment: B 6 - Accidental Release Measures Person-Related Safety Precautions Not required. Measures for Environmental Protection No special measures required. Measures for Cleaning of Accidental Release and Spills • Wear appropriate person protective equipment (see Section 8). • Use dry clean-up methods that do not disperse the powder into the air or entry into surface water and dispose of in a suitable container. Avoid inhaling or contacting the powder. • Wipe or scrape up moist material with a moist paper towel and dispose of in a suitable container. • Do Not wash large amounts of powder or moist material down drains. Additional Information No dangerous substances are released Trade Name: DiaRoot BioAggregate MSDS DiaDent Group International DiaRoot MSDS 01/07 Page 3 of 4 7 – Handling and Storage Information for Safe Handling • Wear appropriate gloves to prevent skin exposure (PVC, PE, Natural Rubber or Nitrile gloves). • Avoid inhaling the powder. Handling Information About Protection Against Explosions and Fires No special measures required.
