IF exposed or concerned: Get medical advice/attention.
SECTION 5) FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable Extinguishing Media:
Dry chemical, foam, carbon dioxide is recommended. Water spray is recommended to cool or protect exposed materials or structures.
Carbon dioxide can displace oxygen. Use caution when applying carbon dioxide in confined spaces. Simultaneous use of foam and water
on the same surface is to be avoided as water destroys the foam. Sand or earth may be used for small fires only.
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media:
If water is used, use very large quantities of cold water. The reaction between water and hot isocyanate may be vigorous.
Specific Hazards in Case of Fire:
Vapors may accumulate and travel to ignition sources distant from the handling site; flash fire can occur.
Excessive pressure or temperature may cause explosive rupture of containers.
Water contamination will produce carbon dioxide. Do not reseal contaminated containers as pressure buildup may rupture them.
Isolate immediate hazard area and keep unauthorized personnel out. Stop spill/release if it can be done safely. Move undamaged
containers from immediate hazard area if it can be done safely. Water spray may be useful in minimizing or dispersing vapors and to
protect personnel. Water may be ineffective but can be used to cool containers exposed to heat or flame. Caution should be exercised
when using water or foam as frothing may occur, especially if sprayed into containers of hot, burning liquid.
Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.
Special Protective Actions:
Wear NIOSH approved self-contained breathing apparatus in positive pressure mode with full-face piece. Boots, gloves (neoprene),
googles, and full protective clothing are also required.
Care should always be exercised in dust/mist areas.
SECTION 6) ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Page 3 of 9
ELIMINATE all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks or flames in immediate area).
Do not touch or walk through spilled material.
Isolate hazard area and keep unnecessary people away. Remove all possible sources of ignition in the surrounding area. Notify authorities
if any exposure to the general public or the environment occurs or is likely to occur.
If spilled material is cleaned up using a regulated solvent, the resulting waste mixture may be regulated.
Positive pressure, full-face piece self-contained breathing apparatus(SCBA), or positive pressure supplied air respirator with escape SCBA
Avoid breathing vapors. Avoid contact with skin, eyes or clothing. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled materials unless wearing
appropriate protective clothing.
Stop spill/release if it can be done safely. Prevent spilled material from entering sewers, storm drains, other unauthorized drainage systems
and natural waterways by using sand, earth, or other appropriate barriers.
Methods and Materials for Containment and Cleaning up:
Cover container, but do not seal, and remove from work area. Prepare a decontamination solution of 2.0% liquid detergent and 3-8%
concentrated ammonium hydroxide in water (5-10% sodium carbonate may be substituted for the ammonium hydroxide). Follow the
precautions on the supplier's safety data sheets.
Treat the spill area with the decontamination solution, using about 10 parts of the solution for each part of the spill, and allow it to react for
at least 15 minutes. Carbon dioxide will be evolved, leaving insoluble polyureas. Residues from spill cleanup, even when treated as
described may continue to be regulated under provisions of RCRA and require storage and disposal as hazardous waste.
Slowly stir the isocyanate waste into the decontamination solution described above. Let stand for 48 hours, allowing the evolved carbon
dioxide to vent away, residues may still be subject to RCRA storage and disposal requirements. Dispose off in compliance with all relevant
local, state, and federal laws and regulations regarding treatment.
SECTION 7) HANDLING AND STORAGE
Wash hands after use.
Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing.
Do not breathe vapors or mists.
Use good personal hygiene practices.
Eating, drinking and smoking in work areas is prohibited.
Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.
Use only with adequate ventilation to control air contaminants to their exposure limits. The use of local ventilation is recommended to
control emissions near the source.
Storage Room Requirements:
Keep container(s) tightly closed and properly labeled. Store in cool, dry, well-ventilated areas away from heat, direct sunlight, strong
oxidizers and any incompatibilities. Store in approved containers and protect against physical damage. Keep containers securely sealed
when not in use. Indoor storage should meet OSHA standards and appropriate fire codes. Containers that have been opened must be
carefully resealed to prevent leakage. Empty container retain residue and may be dangerous.
Use non-sparking ventilation systems, approved explosion-proof equipment and intrinsically safe electrical systems in areas where this
product is used and stored.
Ground and bond containers and receiving equipment. Avoid static electricity by grounding.
Do not cut, drill, grind, weld, or perform similar operations on or near containers. Do not pressurize containers to empty them. Ground all
structures, transfer containers and equipment to conform to the national electrical code. Use procedures that prevent static electrical
sparks. Static electricity may accumulate and create a fire hazard.
SECTION 8) EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Wear eye protection with side shields or goggles. Wear indirect-vent, impact and splash resistant goggles when working with liquids. If
additional protection is needed for entire face, use in combination with a face shield.
Use of gloves approved to relevant standards made from the following materials may provide suitable chemical protection: PVC, neoprene
or nitrile rubber gloves. Suitability and durability of a glove is dependent on usage, e.g. frequency and duration of contact, chemical
resistance of glove material, glove thickness, dexterity. Always seek advice from glove suppliers. Contaminated gloves should be replaced.
Use of an apron and over- boots of chemically impervious materials such as neoprene or nitrile rubber is recommended to avoid skin
sensitization. The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at
the specific workplace. Launder soiled clothes or properly disposed of contaminated material, which cannot be decontaminated.
Depending on conditions of use, additional protection may be required such as apron, arm covers, or full body suit.
Wash contaminated clothing before re-wearing.

If airborne concentrations exceed or are expected to exceed the TLV, use MSHA/NIOSH approved positive pressure supplied pressure
supplied air respiratory with a full face piece or an air supplied hood. For emergencies, use a positive pressure self-contained breathing
apparatus. Air purifying (cartridge type) respirators are not approved for protection against isocyanates.
Appropriate Engineering Controls:
Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the airborne concentrations of vapors below their respective threshold

Potential Health Effects - Miscellaneous
May cause abnormal liver function. The following medical conditions may be aggravated by exposure: respiratory system. Tests for
embryotoxic activity in animals has been inconclusive. Rats exposed to very high airborne levels have exhibited high frequency hearing
deficits. The significance of this to man is unknown. Has been toxic to the fetus in laboratory animals at doses that are toxic to the
Is an IARC, NTP or OSHA carcinogen. Has shown carcinogenic activity in laboratory animals at high doses. Significance to man is
unknown. The following medical conditions may be aggravated by exposure: asthma, respiratory disease. WARNING: This chemical is
known to the State of California to cause cancer.
Is an IARC, NTP or OSHA carcinogen. In a lifetime inhalation test, lung cancers were found in some rats exposed to 250 mg/m3
respirable titanium dust. Analysis of the titanium dioxide concentrations in the rat?s lungs showed that the lung clearance mechanism
was overwhelmed and that the results at the massive 250 mg/m3 level are not relevant to the workplace.?Results of a DuPont
epidemiology study showed that employees who had been exposed to Titanium Dioxide were at no greater risk of developing lung
cancer than were employees who had not been exposed to Titanium dioxide. No pulmonary fibrosis was found in any of the employees
and no association was observed between Titanium dioxide exposure and chronic respiratory disease or x-ray abnormalities. Based on
the results of this study DuPont concludes that titanium dioxide will not cause lung cancer or chronic respiratory disease in humans at
concentrations experienced in the workplace.?
Is an IARC, NTP or OSHA carcinogen. Repeated overexposure to crystalline silica may lead to x-ray changes and chronic lung disease.
Inhalation of high dust concentrations may cause: breathing difficulties, lung injury. WARNING: This chemical is known to the State of
California to cause cancer.
The following medical conditions may be aggravated by exposure: skin disorders. Laboratory studies with rats have shown that
petroleum distillates can cause kidney damage and kidney or liver tumors. These effects were not seen in similar studies with guinea
pigs, dogs, or monkeys. Several studies evaluating petroleum workers have not shown a significant increase of kidney damage or an
increase in kidney or liver tumors.
CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: In 1996, the IARC reevaluated Carbon Black as a Group 2B carcinogen. This evaluation is given to
carbon black for which there is inadequate human evidence, but sufficient animal evidence.
Prolonged inhalation of Carbon black can result in lung disease. Symptoms include coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing and
reduced pulmonary function.
Prolonged inhalation of respirable crystalline silica dust can result in lung disease (i.e. silicosis and/or lung cancer). Symptoms include
coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing and reduced pulmonary function.

SECTION 12) ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
No data available.
Other Adverse Effects:
No data available.
A relevant bioaccumulation potential of carbon black is not expected based on its insolubility in organic solvents and in water.
Furthermore, since the aggregate diameter of carbon black varies between 80 nm and 810 nm, bioaccumulation of particulate carbon
black is not likely oweing to the large diameter of the solid aggregate particles.
Persistence and Degradability
Carbon Black's insolubility in water results in it not being biodegradable in any medium or by biota. It is considered persistent in the
SECTION 13) DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
Under RCRA, it is the responsibility of the user of the product, to determine a the time of disposal whether the product meets RCRA criteria
for hazardous waste. Waste management should be in full compliance with federal, state, and local laws.
Empty containers retain product residue which may exhibit hazards of material, therefore do not pressurize, cut, glaze, weld or use for any
other purposes. Return drums to reclamation centers for proper cleaning and reuse.
