Chicago IL 60606
Information Number: (312) 559-2999

2. Hazards Identification

Route (s) of Entry:InhalationSkinIngestion
YesYesYes

Health Hazards (acute and chronic):
Acute: Eye, skin and respiratory system irritant. Breathing high concentrations may result in dizziness, headache, respiratory irritation, convulsions, or loss of consciousness.
Chronic: None expected when good hygienic practices are employed.

Carcinogenicity:NTPIARC MonographsOSHA Regulated
YesYesNo
Notes:
Natural graphite can contain Silica as quartz; IARC mongraphs animal sufficient evidence, human sufficient evidence.

Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:
Inhalation: Respiratory irritation, dizziness, headache, nausea, fatigue, drowsiness, impaired co-ordination, and eye watering.
Skin: Contact may dry the skin prolonged contact may cause irritation. Can be absorbed through the skin. Solvent action can dry and defat the skin causing skin to crack, leading to dermatitis.
Eyes: Liquid or vapor can irritate the eyes.
Ingestion: May cause cramps and diarrhea. Small amounts aspirated into the respiratory system during ingestion or from vomiting may cause bronchopneumonia or pulmonary edema, a possibly fatal condition.

Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: None known.

4. First Aid Measures

Eyes:
Flush thoroughly with water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention.
Skin:
Wash exposed skin with soap and water. If irritation persists get medical attention. Launder severely contaminated clothing before reuse.
Ingestion:
Do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention.
Inhalation:
Remove to fresh air. Administer oxygen if needed. Apply artificial respiration if breathing has stopped. Get medical attention.

5. Fire Fighting Measures

Flash Point: (method)TCCFlammable Limits:LEL:UEL:
105 F(40.6C)0.97.0

Extinguishing Media: Foam, carbon dioxide, water spray (fog), and dry chemical
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Water may be ineffective as an extinguishing medium, but can be used to keep containers cool. Wear a NIOSH approved self contained breathing apparatus to fight a fire involving this product.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Combustible liquid. Keep away from heat, sparks, open flame and electrical equipment. Closed containers may explode when exposed to extreme heat. On burning, overexposure to decomposition products may cause a health hazard. Symptoms may not be immediately apparent. Seek medical attention.
