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 non-toxic dust. May cause gasping if inhaled. Inhalation should be avoided. May cause temporary eye discomfort.
Health Hazards of Long Term exposure (Chronic): Prolonged inhalation of excessive dust may cause lung damage. It is
attributed to “lung overloading”, a generic response to excessive amounts of any dust retained in the lungs for a prolonged
interval. Use of this product, as intended, does not result in inhalation of excessive dust.
Carcinogenicity: Carbon Black was reclassified as a Group 2B by the IARC in 1996 based upon the result of only the inhalation
study in rats. However, there was not observed the incidence of tumors on the test results on dermal or oral studies. Also, 2 years inhalation study using a typical toner containing carbon black showed no association between toner exposure and
animal tumors.
Section 4: First Aid Measures
Inhalation:
Gargle with water. Remove to fresh air if effects
occur. 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.
Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures
Suitable extinguishing media: CO2, dry chemical, foam or water.
Special protective equipment for fire fighters: none

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.
Do not handle in areas where the wind blows.
Minimize the breathing of dust.
Avoid direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place. Below 35C (95F)
Section 8: Exposure Control and Personal Protection Information:
Respiratory Protection: none required under normal use.
Eye Protection: none required under normal use.
Hand Protection: none required under normal use.
Skin Protection: none required under normal us e.

Section 10: Stability and Reactivity
Conditions to avoid: none
Materials to avoid: none
Hazardous decomposition products: Styrene
Stability: Stable
Section 11: Toxicological Information:
Ames test negative
Acute skin irritation: Non-irritant
Acute oral toxicity: >5000mg/kg (rat)
Acute allergenic effects: non-skin sensitive
Special effects: Carcinogenicity: In 1996 the IARC reclassified 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 levels that induce particle overload of the lung. Studies performed in animal models other than rats have not
demonstrated an association between carbon black and lung tumors. Moreover, 2 -years cancer bioassay using a typical toner
preparation containing carbon black did not demonstrate an association between toner exposure and tumor development in
rats.
Section 12: Environmental / Ecological Information
Acute toxicity to fish: >500 (mg/kg/96hr)
Persistence/Degradability: Not known
Algae inhibition test: Not available
Bioaccumulation: Not known in bioaccumulation
Acute toxicity to daphnia: Not available
Section 13: Disposal Consideration
Used Toner should be disposed of under conditions that meet all federal, state and local environmental regulations. Disposal
regulations vary from locality to locality; therefore consult your local Lanier office or the EPA to determine the proper method for
disposal. Do not incinerate loose or spilled Toner.
