SECTION II- HAZARDOUS INGREDIENTS IDENTITY INFORMATION
ACGIH TLV OSHA PEL NOISHA REL
Chrome Oxide (Cr2O3) 0.2 mg/m3 0.5 mg/m3 0.5 mg/m3
Cobalt Oxide (C03O4) 0.02mg Co mg/m3 0.05 mg/m3 N/A
Glycerine 10 mg/m3 10 mg/m3 N/A
CAS#000056-81-5 5 mg/m3 respirable For mist
Iron Oxide (Fe2O3) 5 mg/m3 10mg/m3 5 mg/m3
Nickel Oxide (NiO) NIC-0.2 1 mg/m3 0.015 mg/m3
CAS#7440-01-0 (A1), (I) (Ca)
(A1)-Confirmed human carcinogen: Agent is carcinogenic to humans based on epidemiologic studies of, or convincing clinical evidence, in exposed humans.
(A3)-Animal Carcinogen: Agent is carcinogenic in experimental animals at dose levels, by route(s) of administration at site, of histologic type, or by mechanism not considered relevant to worker exposure. Available epidemiologic studies do not confirm an increased risk of cancer in humans except under common levels of exposure.
(A4)-Not classifiable as a human carcinogen: Inadequate data on which to classify the agent in terms of its carcinogenicity in humans and or animals.
(I)-Inhalable fraction, the concentration of inhalable particulate for the application of this TLV is to be determined from the fraction passing a size-selector with the characteristics defined in (A1).
SECTION III-SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE
Chrome Oxide-Repeated or prolonged exposure to trivalent chromium compounds may cause delayed effects involving the respiratory system. Causes skin and eye irritation.
Cobalt Oxide-Prolonged inhalation of cobalt dust or metal dust, fume or mist containing cobalt may cause serious respiratory illness. Inhalation may casue an irritation of respiratory organs of sensitive persons resulting in obstruction of airways with shortness of breath. May cause serious eye irritation. Prolonged exposure to skin may produce irritation.
Glycerine-Repeated excessive exposure may cause kidney and liver effects, and increased fat levels in blood. Observations in animals include gastrointestinal irritation with very large oral doses. Did not cause cancer in long term animal studies. Birth defects are unlikely. Exposures having no adverse effects on the m0other should have to effect on the fetus. Reproduction studies indicate that glycerine does not directly interfere with reproduction in animals. When animals were maintained on synthetic diets or dosed at extremely high levels, reproduction in females was affected perhaps due to altered nutritional states.
Iron Oxide-May cause mechanical skin eye irritation. Repeated and prolonged exposure to iron oxide may cause benign pneumoconiosis called siderosis.
Nickel Oxide-Primary entries through skin and inhalation of dust. May irritate skin, eyes and mucous membranes. Can cause "Nickel Itch" in sensitive persons.

Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazard: Keep away from excessive heat or open flame.
SECTION VII-EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES
Eye: Irrigate immediately with water for at least five minutes.
Skin: Wash off in flowing water or shower.
Inhalation: No adverse effects anticipated by this route of exposure incidental to proper industrial handling.
Ingestion: Induce vomiting if large amounts are ingested. Consult medical personnel.
Note To Physician: No specific antidote. Supportive care. Treatment based on judgment of the physician in response to reactions of the patient.
SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE
Eyes: May cause slight transient (temporary) eye irritation. Corneal injury
Skin: Skin irritant. Prolonged or repeated contact can cause defatting and or dermatitis.
Inhalation: Prolonged breathing of vapors may cause irritation of the respiratory system. Prolonged breathing of vapors can cause headache, dizziness, nausea. Overexposure may cause lung damage.
Ingestion: Large amounts may cause irritation of the gastrointestinal tact, central nervous system effcts, increased blood sugar levels, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Observations in animals include gastrointestinal irritation with very large oral doses.
SECTION VIII-SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION
Respiratory Protection: Use NIOSH/OSHA approve air-purifying respiratory protection
where levels exceeds Occupational Exposure Limits.
Personal Protective Equipment: Wear appropriate gloves and goggles to avoid skin and eye contact. Safety showers and eye stations must be present in work area.
Ventilation: Use local exhaust or mechanical such as a dust collector to maintain dust, and vapor levels below the Occupational Exposure Limits.
Handling and Storage: Keep containers closed and dry when not in use. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Store away from excessive heat or open flame.
Other Precautions: Avoid breathing dust, and vapors and use adequate ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling. No eating, drinking or smoking in work area. Wash hands prior to eating, drinking or smoking. Practive good housekeeping, and personal hygiene procedures.
SECTION IX-SPILL OR LEAK
Eliminate all ignition sources. Use spark-proof tools. Add absorbent, contain spillage and scoop up or vacuum. Avoid dusting. Dispose in accordance with federal, state and local laws.
