What happens when one inhales sulfamic acid dust

61322-1
September 13, 2021

Q. What happens when one inhales sulfamic acid dust 0.02 microns ([illegal when not being issued with masks]/[Sulfamic acid mesh 10]) and it combusts to sulfuric acid when meeting calcium (Ca) in the Alveoli?

A. Hi R F.

Inhaling any dust is bad for you, and an acid dust is worse than most. Please review the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for the material. But in the meantime this safety info from New Jersey may help.

Sulfamic acid "combusting to sulfuric acid when meeting calcium" doesn't make any chemistry sense to me though.

Please tell us the actual details of what happened. "What If ..." can never be answered appropriately :-)

Luck & Regards,
