Skin:
Slight irritation.
Ingestion:

N/A
Carcinogenicity:
Accumulation of dust in the respiratory system
Medical Conditions Aggravated By Long-Term Exposure:
may cause congestion.
Chronic Effects:
If these materials are used in a manner that could generate airborne particles (dust), it is recommended that
the dust may be treated as a NUISANCE PARTICULATE according to the American Conference of Government
Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH)(TLV=10mg/m3).
SECTION 4 FIRST AID MEASURES
Remove to fresh air. Treat any irritation symptomatically. Call a physician if condition persists.
Inhalation:
Eye Contact: In case of contact immediately flush with plenty of low pressure water for at least
15 minutes. Remove any contact lenses to ensure thorough flushing.
Skin Contact: Wash well with soap and running water.
N/A
Ingestion:
After first aid, get appropriate in-plant paramedic or community medical support
if serious signs and symptoms persist.

Flammability Classification:

Unusual Fire of Explosion Hazards:
May form flammable dust-air mixture.
Hazardous Combustion Products:
Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide and smoke.
Under certain conditions some aliphatic aldehydes and carboxylic acids
may form.
Fire-Fighting Instructions: Do not release runoff from fire controls methods to sewers or waterways.
Fire-Fighting Equipment: Because fire may produce toxic thermal decomposition products, wear a
self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with full facepiece operated
in pressure-demand or positive-pressure mode.
SECTION 6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Spill / Leak Procedures:
N/A
Small Spills: Scoop into a container for disposal, suction up remaining material with a high efficiency
vacuum cleaner.
Large Spills: Scoop into a container for disposal, suction up remaining material with a high efficiency
vacuum cleaner.
Containment: For large spills, avoid suspending particles, collect for later disposal. Do not release
into sewers or waterways.
Cleanup:
No special requirements.
Regulatory Requirement: N/A
SECTION 7 HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling Precautions:
Storage Requirements:
Regulatory Requirement:
Keep containers closed at all times. Avoid creating dust. Keep away from ignition sources.
Store in a cool, dry location.

SECTION 8 EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
Engineering Controls:
Ventilation:
Provide general or local exhaust ventilation systems to maintain airborne concentrations
below OSHA PELs (sec.2). Local exhaust ventilation is preferred because it prevents contaminant
dispersion into the work area by controlling it at its source.
Administrative Controls:
Respiratory Protection:
Seek professional advise prior to respirator selection and use.
Follow OSHA respirator regulations (29 CFR 1910.134) and, if necessary, wear
a MSHA/NIOSH-approved respirator. Select respirator based on its suitability
to provide adequate worker protection for given working conditions, level of
airborne contamination, and presence of sufficient oxygen. For emergency or
nonroutine operation (cleaning spills, reactor vessels, or storage tanks), wear
an SCBA. Warning! Air-purified respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient
atmospheres.
Protective Clothing/Equipment: Wear chemically protective gloves, boots, aprons, and gauntlets to prevent
prolonged or repeated skin contact. Wear protective eyeglasses or
chemical safety goggles, per OSHA eye and face protection regulations
(29CFR 1910.133). Contact lenses are not eye protective devices. Appropriate
protection must be worn instead of, or in conjunction with contact lenses.
Safety Stations:
Make emergency eyewash stations and washing facilities available in work area.
Contaminated Equipment: Separate contaminated work clothing from street clothes. Launder before
re-use. Remove this material from your shoes and clean personal protective
equipment.
Comments: Never eat, drink, or smoke in works areas. Practice good personal hygiene after using this
material, especially before eating, drinking, using the toilet, or applying cosmetics.

SECTION 11 TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Carcinogenicity:
In 1996, the IARC reevaluated 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 include particle overload of the lungs. Studies performed in
animal models other than rats have not demonstrated as association between carbon black and lung tumors. Moreover, a two-year cancer
bioassay using a typical toner operation containing carbon black demonstrated no association between exposure and tumor development and
rats.
Mutagenicity:
AMES test is negative
Chronic Effects:
In a study in rats (H. Muhle) by chronic inhalation exposure to a typical toner, a mold to moderate degree of lung fibrosis was observed in 92%
of the rats in the concentration (16 mg/m3) exposure group. And a minimal to mild degree of fibrosis was noted 22% of the animals in the
middle (4mg/m3) exposure group. But no pulmonary changes in the lowest (1 mg/m3) exposure group, the most relevant level to potential
human exposure.
