Hazard Symbols: T
Section 3 - Hazards
Appearance: green. May cause allergic skin reaction. Inhalation of fumes may
cause metal-fume fever. Hygroscopic. The toxicological properties of this
material have not been fully investigated. Danger! Causes eye
and skin burns. May cause severe respiratory tract irritation with possible
burns. May cause severe digestive tract irritation with possible burns.
Target Organs: None known.
Eye: Causes eye burns. Exposure to
particulates or solution may cause conjunctivitis, ulceration, and corneal
abnormalities. Contact with the eyes may cause corneal damage.
Skin: Causes skin burns. May cause skin sensitization, an
allergic reaction, which becomes evident upon re-exposure to this material. May
cause skin rash (in milder cases), and cold and clammy skin with cyanosis or
Ingestion: May cause severe and permanent
damage to the digestive tract. Causes gastrointestinal irritation with nausea,
vomiting and diarrhea. Causes gastrointestinal tract burns. May cause
perforation of the digestive tract. May cause hemorrhaging of the digestive
tract. The toxicological properties of this substance have not been fully
investigated. May cause systemic effects.
cause ulceration and perforation of the nasal septum if inhaled in excessive
quantities. Causes chemical burns to the respiratory tract. Inhalation of fumes
may cause metal fume fever, which is characterized by flu-like symptoms with
metallic taste, fever, chills, cough, weakness, chest pain, muscle pain and
increased white blood cell count. The toxicological properties of this substance
have not been fully investigated. Aspiration may lead to pulmonary edema. May
cause systemic effects. Can produce delayed pulmonary edema.
Chronic: Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause
dermatitis. Effects may be delayed. Individuals with Wilson's disease are unable
to metabolize copper. Thus, copper accumulates in various tissues and may result
in liver, kidney, and brain damage.
Section 4 - First Aid
Eyes: Get medical aid immediately. Do NOT allow
victim to rub or keep eyes closed. Extensive irrigation with water is required
(at least 30 minutes).
Skin: Get medical aid immediately.
Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes
while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Destroy contaminated shoes.
Ingestion: Never give anything
by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid immediately. Do NOT induce
vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or
Inhalation: Get medical aid immediately. Remove from
exposure to fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Do
NOT use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. If breathing has ceased apply artificial
respiration using oxygen and a suitable mechanical device such as a bag and a
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and
Antidote: The use of d-Penicillamine as a
chelating agent should be determined by qualified medical personnel.
Section 5 - Fire
Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus
in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective
gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by
thermal decomposition or combustion. Wear appropriate protective clothing to
prevent contact with skin and eyes. Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus
(SCBA) to prevent contact with thermal decomposition products. Use extinguishing
media appropriate to the surrounding fire. Substance is noncombustible.
Extinguishing Media: Substance is noncombustible; use agent
most appropriate to extinguish surrounding fire. Use water spray, dry chemical,
carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
Section 6 -
Accidental Release Measures
Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in
Spills/Leaks: Vacuum or sweep up material and
place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, observing
precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty
conditions. Provide ventilation.
Section 7 - Handling
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Use only
in a well-ventilated area. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid
contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Do not breathe dust, vapor, mist, or gas.
Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Keep container tightly closed.
Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Do not ingest or inhale. Use with adequate
ventilation. Wash clothing before reuse. Discard contaminated shoes.
Storage: Keep container closed when not in use. Store in a
tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from
incompatible substances. Store protected from moisture.
Section 8 - Exposure
Controls, Personal Protection
Controls: Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be
equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate ventilation
to keep airborne concentrations low.
