Section 3 - Hazards Identification
The following information is based on testing of the product as a whole and/or characteristics of components.
Hazard Information:
Primary Routes of Exposure: Dust inhalation, skin contact.
Inhalation:
Low acute inhalation toxicity. As with exposure to high concentrations of any dust,
minimal irritation of the respiratory tract may occur. Exposure not probable with
intended use.
Skin Contact:
Not an irritant. Low dermal toxicity. Not a dermal sensitizer.
Eye Contact:
Toner may act as a mechanical irritant.
Ingestion:
Low acute oral toxicity. Exposure not probable with intended use.
Section 4 - First Aid Measures
Inhalation:
If symptoms, such as shortness of breath or persistent coughing are experienced,
remove source of contamination and move individual to fresh air. If symptoms
persist, seek medical attention.
Skin Contact:
Wash with soap and water. Should irritation occur, seek medical attention.

Eye Contact:
Do not rub eyes. Flush immediately with plenty of water. Remove contact lenses
and continue flushing for at least 15 minutes. If irritation develops and persists,
seek medical attention.
Ingestion:
Do not induce vomiting. Slowly dilute with 1-2 glasses of water or milk and seek
medical attention. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Aggravated Conditions:
Exposure to high airborne dust concentrations, including toner, may aggravate
existing respiratory conditions.
Notes to Physician:
No specific antidote.
Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures
Flash Point/Range (°C):
Autoignition Temperature (°C):
Flammable Limits in Air UEL:
Flammable Limits in Air LEL:
Solid, not applicable
Not applicable
Not determined
Not determined
Extinguishing Media:
Carbon dioxide, water spray or fog, dry chemical or foam
Hazardous Combustion Products: Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, unidentified organics
Special Exposure Hazards:
Like many finely divided materials, toner dust, in high concentrations can form an
explosive mixture in air which, if ignited, could result in a dust explosion.
Special Protective Equipment:
Fire fighters should wear full protective clothing, including self-contained breathing
apparatus, if a large number of cartridges are involved.
NFPA Rating:
HMIS Classification:
Health: 1 Flammability: 1 Reactivity: 0
Health: 1 Flammability: 1 Reactivity: 0
Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures
Personal Precautionary
Measures:
Environmental Precautionary:
None required for intended use in printer.
Procedure for Cleaning/
Absorption:
If a dust cloud is possible due to a spill, remove all sources of ignition such as
open sparks, flames, or static discharge to prevent the ignition of the dust.
Minimize dust generation during clean up. Sweep up spill with non-metallic broom
and dustpan. Contain for disposal. Oil permeated sweeping compound may be
useful in cleaning up spills.
Disposal is subject to national, state, regional, or provincial regulations.
Section 7 - Handling and Storage
Handling:
To avoid damage to cartridge and accidental contact with toner
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Storage:
Store in a cool, dry place. Store away from oxidizing material.
Section 8 - Exposure Controls / Personal Protection
Engineering Controls:
None required. Use in a well ventilated area.
Respiratory Protection:
None required for intended use in printer.
Gloves:
None required for intended use in printer.

Section 11 - Toxicological Information
Primary Routes of Exposure:
Inhalation of dust, skin contact.
Ingestion:
Low acute oral toxicity. Exposure not probable with intended use.
Acute Toxicity Oral Rat LD50
(mg/kg):
Inhalation:
>5000
Aggravated Conditions:
Exposure to high airborne dust concentrations, including toner, may aggravate
existing respiratory conditions.
Carcinogenicity Comment:
Neither this product nor any of its components present above 0.1% are listed by
IARC, NTP, or OSHA as known carcinogens.
Low acute inhalation toxicity. As with exposure to high concentrations of any dust,
minimal irritation of the respiratory tract may occur. Pure carbon black, a minor
component of this product, has been listed by IARC as a group 2B (possible
carcinogen). This classification is based on rat "lung particulate overload" studies
performed with airborne particulate carbon black. Toner is not listed by IARC, NTP,
or OSHA.
