1. Chemical Product and Company Identification

Chemical Name: Black Ice Aerosol
Manufacturer: Superior Graphite
Address: 10 S. Riverside Plaza
Chicago IL 60606
Information Number: (312) 559-2999

2. Hazards Identification

Route (s) of Entry:InhalationSkinIngestion

Health Hazards (acute and chronic): Eyes, skin and respiratory system irritant. Narcotic in high concentrations. Severe overexposure may cause damage to the blood. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational exposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system and other internal organ damage.

Carcinogenicity:NTPIARC MonographsOSHA Regulated
Silica as quartz; animal sufficient evidence, human sufficient evidence.

Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:
Inhalation: Respiratory irritation, dizziness, headache, nausea, fatigue, drowsiness, impaired coordination, central nervous system depression or heart arrhythmia.
Skin: Contact may dry the skin prolonged contact may cause irritation. Can not be easily absorbed through the skin. Solvent action can dry and defat the skin causing skin to crack, leading to dermatitis.
Eyes: Liquid or vapor can cause moderate to severe irritation.
Ingestion: Not a likely route of exposure.

Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: Liver and kidney disease, anemia, coronary disease or rhythm disorders of the heart.

4. First Aid Measures

Flush thoroughly with water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention.
Wash exposed skin with soap and water. If irritation persists get medical attention. Launder severely contaminated clothing before reuse.
Do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention.
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)25 deg F (TCC)Flammable Limits:LEL:UEL:
Note:liquid only1.27

Extinguishing Media: Foam, carbon dioxide, dry chemical or water spray (fog).
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Wear a NIOSH approved self contained breathing apparatus to fight a fire involving this material. Water spray may be ineffective. Water may be used to cool containers to prevent pressure build-up and explosion when exposed to extreme heat. If water is used, fog nozzles are preferred.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Closed containers may explode from internal pressure build-up when exposed to extreme heat and discharge contents. Vapor accumulation can flash or explode if ignited. Overexposure to decomposition products may cause a health hazard. Symptoms may not be immediately apparent. Obtain medical attention.

NFPA Notes:

6. Accidental Release Measures

Spill/Leak Procedures: Avoid breathing vapors. Ventilate area, remove all sources of ignition. Clean up area with absorbent material and place in closed containers for disposal.

Dispose of in accordance with local, state and federal regulaitons.

7. Handling and Storage

Handling and Storage Precautions: Store and use in cool, dry, well-ventilated areas. Do not store above 120 F. Do not puncture or incinerate (burn) cans. Do not stick a pin, nail or any other sharp object into opening on top of can. Do not spray in eyes. Do not take internally. See product label for additional information. Small pressurized containers of flammable products may be stored in areas suitable for ordinary combustibles with respect to construction, drainage, control of ignition sources and ventilation except that they should not be stored in basements.
Work/Hygienic Practices: Follow good hygienic practice for solvent borne products. Use adequate ventilation. Wash hands and face after handling this product.
