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): A manufacturer sponsored chronic inhalation study in rats using a special test toner revealed
3
there were no lung changes at all in the lowest exposure level (1mg/m ), the most relevant level to potential human exposures. A very slight
3
degree of fibrosis was noted in 25% of the animals at the middle exposure level (4mg/m ), while a slight degree of fibrosis was observed at the
3
highest exposure level (16mg/m ) 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.
