Lanier Worldwide, Inc. 2300 Parklake Drive, NE Atlanta, GA USA 30345-2979 MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET Emergency Telephone: 800-551-3087 Section 1: Chemical Product and Company Information Identity: Product ID: Black Toner Cartridge Type R1 480-0285, 480-0393 Synonyms & Common Names: Black Toner Cartridge Type R1 Uses: Chemical Formula: MSDS No. Issued: Supersedes: Date: Prepared by: Approved by: CP- 450 10/19/2006 09/14/2005 10/19/2006 EH&S Department 770-496-9500 Larry Choskey, H&S Manager Lanier LD328c, LD335c, LD345c, LD435c, LD445c Mixture Section 2: Composition / Information on Ingredients Polyester resin Carbon black Wax Silica PERCENT > 70 < 10 CAS No. Confidential 1333-86-4 < 10 < 10 Confidential 7631-86-9 *PEL as the product: 15mg/m3 (total dust), 5mg/m3 (respirable dust) *TLV as the product: 10mg/m3 (total dust), 5mg/m3 (respirable dust) EXPOSURE LIMITS Not listed 3.5 mg/m3 3.5 mg/m3 Not listed 15 mg/m3 10 mg/m3 SOURCE N/a OSHA TWA ACGIH TWA N/a OSHA TWA ACGIH TWA 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: Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures Suitable extinguishing media: CO2, dry chemical, foam or water. Fire Fighting Instructions: Generally by sprinkling or extinguisher Special protective equipment for fire fighters: none UEL: n/a LEL: n/a Burning rate: n/a your document management partner 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. MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET Page 2 of 3 CP-450 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. Hand Protection: none required under normal use. Eye Protection: none required under normal use. Skin Protection: none required under normal use.

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. Teratogenicity: Not available Section 12: Environmental / Ecological Information Bioaccumulation: Environmental Degradability: Not known in bioaccumulation Not known 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.
