SECTION 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Item ID:
Page 1 of 5
MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
EC CLASSIFICATION (CALCULATED): Not determined.
EMERGENCY OVERVIEW:
ROUTES OF ENTRY: Toner is contained in a cartridge. Exposure potential includes
incidental inhalation of toner dust and possible minimal skin contact during cartridge change.
There is no evidence that toner is absorbed through the skin.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE: Toner on skin or mucous membranes (mouth,
eyes, or nose).
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: None known at intended
levels of use. Exposure to high airborne dust concentrations, including toner, may aggravate
existing respiratory conditions.
PHYSICAL HAZARDS: As with most finely divided dusts, an explosion is possible when
extremely high concentrations of dust and an ignition source are present. Not a hazard under
normal conditions of use.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS:
INHALATION:
SHORT TERM EXPOSURE: Testing and/or information on this or similar toners, or on
the constituents of this toner indicate low inhalation toxicity. As with exposure to high
concentrations of any dust, minimal respiratory tract irritation may occur if excessive
amounts of toner dust are inhaled. Exposure not probable with intended use.
LONG TERM EXPOSURE: No adverse chronic effects known at expected level of use.
Exposure not probable with intended use.
SKIN CONTACT:
SHORT TERM EXPOSURE: Testing and/or information on this or similar toners, or on
the constituents of this toner indicate this toner is not a skin irritant and is of low dermal
toxicity. This toner is not expected to be a dermal sensitizer. Exposure not probable with
intended use.
LONG TERM EXPOSURE: Rare individuals may note skin rash with repeated contact.
Exposure not probable with intended use.
EYE CONTACT:
SHORT TERM EXPOSURE: Toner may act as mechanical irritant. Exposure not
probable with intended use.
LONG TERM EXPOSURE: No adverse chronic effects known. Exposure not probable
with intended use.
INGESTION:
SHORT TERM EXPOSURE: Testing and/or information on this or similar toners, or on
the constituents of this toner indicate low oral toxicity. Exposure not probable with
intended use.
LONG TERM EXPOSURE: No adverse chronic effects known. 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 affected area with soap and water. Should irritation occur, seek
medical attention.

MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
EYE CONTACT: Do not rub eyes. Flush immediately with plenty of water. Remove contact
lenses and continue flushing for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention if irritation develops
and persists.
INGESTION: IF conscious, immediately wash mouth out with plenty of water. Seek medical
attention.
SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
CONDITIONS OF FLAMMABILITY AND EXPLOSION: 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.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: CO2, water spray or fog, dry chemical or foam.
FIRE FIGHTING: NIOSH approved self-contained breathing apparatus may be required if a
large number of cartridges are involved.
FLASH POINT (METHOD): Not applicable
LOWER FLAMMABLE LIMIT: Not available
UPPER FLAMMABLE LIMIT: Not available
AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: Not available
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: CO, CO2, and low molecular weight organics.
EXPLOSION DATA: See Conditions of Flammability and Explosion
SENSITIVITY TO MECHANICAL IMPACT: Not available
SENSITIVITY TO STATIC DISCHARGE: See Conditions of Flammability and Explosion
SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
OCCUPATIONAL SPILL: If a dust cloud is possible due to spills involving a large number of
cartridges, 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
nonmetallic broom and dustpan. Contain for disposal. To avoid possible dust explosion, do not
use vacuum cleaners to clean up spills. Oil permeated sweeping compound may assist in the
cleanup of toner spilled on nonporous surfaces.
SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE
Store away from oxidizing materials. When handling, minimize generation of dust. Supply
adequate ventilation. To avoid damage to cartridge and accidental contact with toner- keep out of
reach of small children. Store in cool dry place.
SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
EXPOSURE LIMITS:
Ingredients listed in Section 1: OSHA PEL and ACGIH TLV specific work place limits
have not been established.
In Canada, consult local authorities for acceptable provincial values.
VENTILATION: Mechanical room ventilation is recommended.
RESPIRATOR: None required for intended use in printer.
EYE PROTECTION: None required for intended use in printer.
PROTECTIVE GLOVES: None required for intended use in printer.

SECTION 10 - STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
STABILITY: Stable
CONDITIONS TO AVOID: Combustible atmospheres of toner dust. Ignition sources,
excessive heat, sparks and open flame.
INCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS: Strong oxidizers.
HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: CO, CO2 , phenol derivatives and
unidentified organics.
POLYMERIZATION: This product will not polymerize.
SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
PRODUCT DATA:
ACUTE TOXICITY LEVEL: Not expected to be acutely toxic.
CHRONIC TOXICITY: Not expected to be chronically toxic. Industry tests on similar generic
toner showed no signs of overt toxicity. Rats exposed to high levels of toner showed a chronic
inflammatory response and a mild to moderate degree of lung fibrosis. There were no pulmonary
changes of any type at the lower toner exposure level, which is most relevant in regard to
potential human exposures. Toner is not listed by IARC, NTP, or OSHA.
