WARNING: INJURIOUS TO EYES/ CAUSES SKIN IRRITATION READ THIS WARNING BEFORE USING
Contains Portland Cement
Contact with wet (unhardened) concrete, mortar, cement or cement mixtures can cause skin irritation, severe chemical burns, or serious eye injury.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Wear waterproof gloves, a fully buttoned long-sleeved shirt, full-length trousers, and tight-fitting eye protection when working with these materials.
If you must stand in wet concrete, use waterproof boots that are tight at tops and high enough to keep concrete from flowing into them. If you are finishing concrete, wear knee pads to protect knees.
Wash wet concrete, mortar, cement, or cement mixtures from your skin with fresh, clean water immediately after contact. Indirect contact through clothing can be as serious as direct contact, so promptly rinse out wet concrete, mortar, cement or cement mixtures from clothing.
Seek immediate medical attention if you have persistent or severe discomfort. In case of eye contact, flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Consult a physician immediately.
