Section II. Composition and Information on Ingredients

 

Material CAS# % OSHA ACGIH
Copper 7440-50-8
99+%
1mg/m≥ 1mg/m≥

Section III Hazards Identification:

 

  • General Information: Flammable, Irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin.
  • Acute Health Effects: Irritating to the skin and eyes on contact. Inhalation will cause irritation to the lungs and mucus membrane. Irritation to the eyes will cause watering and redness. Reddening, scaling, and itching are characteristics of skin inflammation. Follow safe industrial hygiene practices and always wear protective equipment when handling this compound.
  • Chronic Health Effects: Chronic copper poisoning is typified by hepatic cirrhosis, brain damage and demyelination, kidney defects, and copper deposition in the cornea as exemplified by humans with Wilsonís disease. It has also been reported that copper poisoning has lead to hemolytic anemia and accelerates arteriosclerosis.
  • Acute Health Effects: This product is not listed by NTP, IARC or regulated as a Carcinogen by OSHA.
Hazard Symbols:

Risk phrases: 10/36/37/38

Section IV. First Aid Measures

 

  • First Aid For Eye: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician.
  • First Aid For Skin: In case of contact, flush skin with water. Wash clothing before reuse. Call a physician if irritation occurs.
  • First Aid For Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician.
  • First Aid For Ingestion: If swallowed, call a physician immediately.

Section V. Fire and Explosion Data

 

  • Flammability: Non-Flammable
  • Flash Points: Not Applicable
  • Auto-Ignition: Not Applicable
  • Flammable Limits: Not Applicable
  • Extinguishing Media: Dry chemical powder. Do not use water.
  • Fire Fighting Procedure: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.
  • Fire/Explosion Hazards: This material, like most materials in powder form, is capable of creating a dust explosion. Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions.

Section VI. Accidental Release Measures

 

  • Spill Or Leak Procedures: Utilize recommended protective clothing and equipment. Clean spills in a manner that does not disperse dust into the air. Spill area can be washed with water. Collect wash water for approved disposal. Keep from entering water or ground water

Section VII. Handling and Storage

 

  • Storage Temperatures: Store at ambient temperature
  • Shelf Life: Unlimited in tightly closed container.
  • Special Sensitivity: None
  • Handling/Storage Precautions: Avoid breathing dust. Avoid getting in eyes or on skin. Wash thoroughly after handling. Store in a dry place away from direct sunlight, heat and incompatible materials (see Section X). Reseal containers immediately after use. Store away from food and beverages.

Section VIII. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

 

  • Eye Protection: Safety glasses or goggles.
  • Skin Protection: PVC gloves with impervious boots, apron or coveralls. Employees should wash their hands and face before eating, drinking or using tobacco products.
  • Respirator: Work ambient concentrations should be monitored and if the recommended exposure limit is exceeded, a NIOSH/MSHA approved dust respirator must be worn.
  • Ventilation: Use local ventilation if dusting is a problem, to maintain air levels below the recommended exposure limit.
  • Additional Protective Measures: Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be available. Educate and train employees in the safe use and handling of hazardous chemicals.

Section IX. Physical and Chemical Properties
