|Trade Secret Metal Alloys||Trade Secret||Trade Secret|
HMIS Hazard Ratings
|Health Hazard: 0||Fire Hazard: 0||Reactivity: 2|
Based on the National Paint Coatings Association HMIS rating system.
SARA Title III Hazard Categories (See Section IX)
|Immediate (Acute) Health: ND||Reactive Hazard: ND|
|Delayed (Chronic) Health: ND||Sudden Release of Pressure: ND|
|Synonyms/Common Names: NA||Chemical Formula: Not Determine|
|II. Health Hazard Information|
Under normal handling conditions, the solid alloy presents no significant health hazards. Processing of the alloy by dust- or fume-producing operation (i.e., grinding, buffing, heating, and welding) may result in the potential for exposure to airborne metal particulates or fume.
|Eyes:||Direct eye contact may cause irritation, redness, and pain. May cause tissue damage if not removed promptly. In case of eye contact, remove contact lenses and immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes, holding eyelids apart to ensure flushing of the entire eye surface. Seek medical attention.|
|Skin:||Skin exposure may cause irritation, drying, redness, and dermatitis. May be absorbed through damaged skin. In case of skin contact, thoroughly wash with running water and non-abrasive soap using cold water. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing.|
|Inhalation:||Inhalation of fumes irritates the respiratory tract. Symptoms from overexposure can include sore, dry throat and a metallic taste followed by a cough, chest pain, and difficulty in breathing. Bronchitis, pneumonitis, and pulmonary edema have been reported as a result of fume irritation. Headaches, dizziness, loss of appetite, and weight loss have also been reported. The liver, kidneys, and bone marrow may be injured by exposure that is above recommended guidelines. If overexposed, remove to fresh air. Get medical attention.|
|Ingestion:||Seek immediate medical attention.|
III. Fire and Explosion Data
|Flash Point: ND||Auto ignition Temperature: Not Determined|
|Flammable Limits in Air
% by volume –
|Upper Not Determined|
|Lower Not Determined|
Solid form of product is not combustible. Fire and explosion hazards are moderate when material is in the form of dust and exposed to heat, flames, chemical reaction, or in contact with strong oxidizers. Use special mixtures of dry chemical or sand for fire. Molten metal may react violently with water. Fire fighters should use NIOSH-approved SCBA and full protective equipment when fighting chemical fire.
|IV. Special Protection|
Work in well-ventilated areas to keep concentrations below permissible exposure limits.
|.05 mg/m3||ND||.2 mg/m3|
Personal Protective Equipment:
|Respiratory:||Use only with adequate ventilation under engineered air control systems designed to prevent exceeding exposure limits. If the exposure limit is exceeded, use NIOSH/MSH approved respirator for fume or dust.|
|Eye:||Required for melt, grind, cut, or weld operations. Minimum requirement of safety glasses with side shields for these operations. Melting and welding may require special eye protection, including face shields and specially tinted glass. Grinding operations may also require face shields.|
|Skin:||Wear impervious protective clothing, including boots, gloves, lab coat, apron or coveralls, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact.|
|V. Physical Data|
|Boiling Point:||Not determined|
|Vapor pressure:||Not determined|
|Vapor density:||Not determined|
|Solubility in water:||Not determined|
VI. Reactivity Data
For Denatured Alcohol:
|Chemical stability:||Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.|
|Conditions to avoid:||Strong acids.|
|Hazardous Decomposition Products:||Metallic dust or fumes may be produced during welding, burning, grinding and machining.|
|Hazardous Polymerization:||Should not occur.|
|VII. Handling and Storage|
Store material away from incompatible materials and keep dust from sources of ignition. Read and follow all label instructions.
|VIII. Environmental Procedures|
Steps to be taken if material is released or spilled: If large quantities of dust are spilled, remove by vacuuming or wet sweeping to prevent heavy concentration of airborne dust. If liquids (acids or bases) containing solubilized metal are spilled, evacuate unprotected personnel from area. Absorb liquid by means of vermiculite, dry sand, or similar material. Follow Federal, State, and local regulations.
Waste Disposal Considerations:
Dispose of container and unused contents in accordance with Federal, State, and local requirements.
|IX. Additional Information|
