Section 3: Hazards Identification
HMIS Rating:
FLAMMABILITY = 1
REACTIVITY = 0
HEALTH = 0
SPECIAL = none
Health Hazards (Acute, Chronic, Immediate and Potential): Minimum irritation to respiratory tract may occur as with exposure to any nontoxic dust. May cause gasping if inhaled. Inhalation should be avoided. May cause temporary eye discomfort.
Health Hazards of Long Term exposure (Chronic): A manufacturer sponsored chronic inhalation study in rats using a special test toner
revealed there were no lung changes at all in the lowest exposure level (1mg/m3), the most relevant level to potential human exposures. A very
slight degree of fibrosis was noted in 25% of the animals at the middle exposure level (4mg/m3), while a slight degree of fibrosis was observed
at the highest exposure level (16mg/m3) in all animals. These findings are attributed to “Lung Overloading”, a generic response to excessive
amount of any dust retained in the lungs for a prolonged interval. The special test toner was ten times more respirable than commercially
available toner to comply with EPA testing protocol and would not function properly in Xerographic equipment.
Carbon Black is listed on the IARC Monograph and the Massachusetts Substance List. The IARC has evaluated the evidence for the
carcinogenicity of Carbon Black as inadequate to determine a carcinogenic risk for humans.
This product contains no known hazardous materials as defined by the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard 29 CFR 1910.1200.
Section 4: First Aid Measures
Inhalation:
Remove to fresh air if effects occur. Gargle with
water. Get medical attention if needed.
Eye Contact:
Skin Contact:
Wash with soap and water.
Ingestion:
In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with
water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if
needed.
Dilute stomach contents with several glasses
of water. Get medical attention if needed.
Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures
Suitable extinguishing media: CO2, dry chemical, foam or water.
Extinguishing media which may not be used for safety reasons: none
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Toner material, like most
organic material in powdered form, is capable of creating a
dust explosion.
Flammability: Product will burn in case of fire. The decomposition products are CO, CO2, and No x. Avoid inhalation of smoke.
Special protective equipment for fire fighters: none

Spill / leak Procedures: If spilled, sweep up using an approved toner vacuum with a 0.5 micron filter or smaller, such as the Atrix AAA Toner
Vacuum or 3M Toner Vacuum. Use of a vacuum cleaner not rated for toner particles, could result in a fire or personal injury. Remove residue
with soap and cold water.
Miscellaneous: Keep product out of sewers and watercourses.
Personal protection: Avoid inhalation of dust.
