The Hazard fields include special hazard alerts, air and water reactions, fire hazards, health hazards, a reactivity profile, and details about reactive groups assignments and potentially incompatible absorbents. The information in CAMEO Chemicals comes from a variety of data sources.
Reactivity Alerts
none
Air & Water Reactions
No rapid reaction with air No rapid reaction with water
Fire Hazard
No information available.
Health Hazard
Exposure Routes: inhalation, skin and/or eye contact

Symptoms: Irritation eyes, skin, mucous membrane; cough, sneezing, rhinorrhea (discharge of thin mucus); lacrimation (discharge of tears)

Target Organs: Eyes, skin, respiratory system (NIOSH, 2016)
Reactivity Profile
LIMESTONE has generally low chemical reactivity and is non-combustible. It decomposes at high temperature (825°C) to give gaseous carbon dioxide and calcium oxide (quicklime). Incompatible with acids, alum, ammonium salts, fluorine, magnesium. Reacts with acids and acidic salts to generate gaseous carbon dioxide with effervescence (bubbling). The reaction is rapid and exothermic with concentrated solutions of acids. The effervescence can create extensive foaming. Ignites on contact with fluorine.
Belongs to the Following Reactive Group(s)
