Section 3: Hazards Identification
HMIS Rating:
FLAMMABILITY = 1
REACTIVITY = 0
HEALTH = 1
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. Get medical
attention if needed.

water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if
needed.
Dilute stomach contents with several glasses
of water. Get medical attention.

Section 6: Accidental Release Measures
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.
Section 7: Handling and Storage
Special Handling:
Special Storage:
Cleanse skin after contact before breaks or meals, and end of workday.
Avoid direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place.
Section 8: Exposure Control and Personal Protection Information:
Ventilation: Local exhaust
Respiratory Protection: Nuisance dust respirator.
Eye Protection: Safety goggles.
Hand Protection: none required under normal use.
Skin Protection: Gloves.

Section 10: Stability and Reactivity
Conditions to avoid: none
Materials to avoid: none
Stability: Stable
Hazardous decomposition products: CO and CO2 and other decomposition products when burned.
Section 11: Toxicological Information:
Acute oral toxicity (rat) LD50: Over 2.0 g/kg
Ames Test result: Negative Skin irritation (rabbit): none. Eye irritation (rabbit): mild
Acute inhalation (rat) 4 hour: LC50 and LCL0 are in excess of 5.46 mg/L
Carcinogenicity: In 1996, the IARC reevaluated carbon black as a GROUP 2B carcinogen (possible human carcinogen). This evaluation is given
to carbon black for which there is inadequate human evidence, but sufficient animal evidence. The latter is based upon the development of lung
tumors in rats receiving chronic inhalation exposures to free carbon black at a level that induce particle overload of the lungs. Studies
performed in mice have not demonstrated an association between carbon black and lung tumors. Moreover, a two-year cancer bioassay using
a typical toner preparation containing carbon black demonstrated no association between toner and tumor development in rats.
Section 12: Environmental / Ecological Information
None
