2. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Classification of the substance or mixture
Contains no ingredients now known to be hazardous by OSHA.
Label Elements
Signal Words
None
Hazard Statement(s)
Contains no ingredients now known to be hazardous by OSHA. The normal cutting of the fibre, rod or carbon mount, either with scissors, razor blade or other machining is suspected of generating small amounts of possibly respirable fibres or dust. We believe that such cutting or working with powder should be done in a ventilated hood facility. Appearance: Black Greasy or gray if graphite Immediate effects: Coughing, Difficulty in breathing.
Precautionary Statement(s)
Not available.
Primary route(s) of entry
Inhalation.Skin or eye contact.Skin Absorption: Not expected to be a major route of entry.
Human Health
Inhalation:
Small graphite fibres, powders or dust are suspected as being possible inhalation hazards.Signs and Symptoms of Overexposure: Coughing, forceful expiration. Dyspnea, difficulty in breathing. Black sputum, black coloured expectorate. Bronchitis, inflamed bronchial mucous membranes, pulmonary fibrosis, fibrous tissue involving lungs. Pneumoconiosis, degenerative respiratory disease.
Ingestion:
Not available.
Eyes:
Dust may cause eye irritation.
Skin:
Dust may cause skin irritation.
Environment
No further relevant information available.

4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
Not known.
Inhalation
If large amounts of the dust are inhaled, move the exposed person to fresh air at once. If symptoms persist contact physician.
Skin Contact
Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and water. Flush with lukewarm water for 15 minutes.
Eye Contact
In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of flowing water for at least 15 minutes, retracting eye lids often. Get medical attention immediately. Contact lenses should not be worn when working with this product.
Other Information
Chronic Exposure: A review of the literature does not show obvious long term hazard.Chemical Listed As Carcinogen Or Potential Carcinogen: No component known to be present in this product and is at > 0.1% is presently listed as a carcinogen by IARC or OSHA unless other wise noted. See Toxicological Information.
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
Non-burning
HAZCHEM
Not available.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
Treat the surrounding fire; this product is non-burning.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
This product is not subject to "accidental release" in the form of normal use.
Environmental precautions
No special measures required.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
This product is not subject to "accidental release" in the form of normal use.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
No special precautions required.
Conditions for safe storage
Store in the plastic bags or container in which the product is shipped, tightly sealed.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Standards
Engineering controls
Ventilation required: Chemical fume hood with exhaust.
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
ANSI 87.1 approved safety glasses with side shield.
Skin protection
Latex gloves.
Body protection
No particular protection needed when handling this material on an occasional basis. For converting bulk rolls of the fibre into smaller packs, we recommend the wearing of some kind of gloves, for example, latex gloves.
Respiratory protection
For the occasional cutting of a fibre or rod, special protection is not needed, provided it is done in a chemical fume hood with exhaust. When working with powder use chemical fume hood with exhaust.

No further relevant information available.
Eye contact
No further relevant information available.
Skin contact
No further relevant information available.
Ingestion
No further relevant information available.
Inhalation
No further relevant information available.
Toxicity and irritation
Graphite causes benign pneumoconiosis (graphitosis). Symptoms of pneumoconiosis from graphite exposure are Dyspnea, coughing, black sputum, bronchitis, ventricular hypertrophy and impairment of pulmonary function. X-rays will show progressive nodulation of the lungs. The threshold limit value was set in conformity with the limit for free crystalline silica, which may be present in graphite. Chronic Effects: A review of the literature does not show obvious long term hazard. No component known to be present in this product at > 0.1% is presently listed as a carcinogen by IARC, NTP, or OSHA unless otherwise noted in Section 16.
