When used as intended according to instructions, studies do not indicate any symptoms of fibrosis will occur. Environmental Effects : not toxic to aquatic organisms Specific Hazards : Dust explosion (like most finely divided organic powders) Directive 1999/45/EC(Europe) : Not classified as dangerous 4.FIRST-AID MEASURES Route(s) of Entry : Inhalation? Yes Skin? No Ingestion? Possible but very unusual. Inhalation : Remove to fresh air. If symptoms occur, consult medical personnel. Skin Contact : Wash with soap and water for 15 minutes or until particle is removed. If irritation does occur, consult medical personnel. Eye Contact : Flush eyes immediately with water for 15 minutes. If irritation does occur, consult medical personnel. Ingestion : Rinse with water and drink several glasses of water. If irritation or discomfort does occur, consult medical personnel. 5.FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES Extinguishing Media : Water, CO2, foam and dry chemicals Special Fire Fighting Procedures : None Fire and Explosion Hazards : Toner material, like most finely divided organic powders, may form an explosive mixture. 6.ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Personal Precautions : None Environmental Precautions : None Methods for Cleaning Up : Wipe off with paper or cloth. Do not use vacuum cleaner when a large amount is released. It, like most finely divided organic powders, is capable of creating a dust explosion. 7.HANDLING AND STORAGE Handling Technical Measures : None Precautions : None Safe Handling Advice : Use of a dust mask is recommended when handling a large quantity of toner or during long term exposure, as with any non-toxic dust. Try not to disperse the particles. Storage Technical Measures : None Storage Conditions : Keep container closed and Store in a cool and dry place. Keep out of the reach of children. Incompatible Products : None 8.EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION Engineering Measures Ventilation : Not required under intended use.

This classification is given to chemicals for which there is inadequate human evidence, but sufficient animal evidence on which to base an opinion of carcinogenicity. The classification 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 did not show any association between carbon black and lung tumors. Moreover, a two-year cancer bioassay using a typical toner preparation containing carbon black demonstrated no association between toner exposure and tumor development in rats. MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET Chronic Effect Page : 4/4 Date Revised : Jul. 15, 2005 Date Issued : Nov. 1, 1998 MSDS No. F-00841 : In a study in rats of chronic inhalation exposure to a typical toner, a mild to moderate degree of lung fibrosis was observed in 92% of the rats in the high concentration (16mg/m3) exposure group, and a minimal to mild degree of fibrosis was noted in 22% of the animals in the middle (4mg/m3) exposure group, but no pulmonary change was reported in the lowest (1mg/m3) exposure group, the most relevant level to potential human exposures. 12.ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION Ecotoxicity : On available data, toner is not harmful to aquatic organisms 13.DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS Waste from Residues : Waste material may be dumped or incinerated under conditions which meet all federal, state and local environmental regulations. Contaminated Packaging : Waste may be disposed or incinerated under conditions which meet all federal, state and local environmental regulations. 14.TRANSPORT INFORMATION UN Classification : None Not classified as hazardous for transport. 15.REGULATORY INFORMATION US Information TSCA(Toxic Substances Control Act) : All chemical substances in this product comply with all applicable rules or order under TSCA.
