  • Chlorinated Rubber as shipped and at ambient temperatures should be treated as nuisance dust and with using acceptable occupational hygiene precautions, no adverse effects have been encountered , or are to be expected with this product. * Toluene is an EPA Not Classifiable as to Human Carcinogenicity and an IARC Not Classifiable as to Carcinogemicity to Humans. **Tetrachloromethane Chlorinated rubbers contain residual levels of tightly-bound Tetrachloromethane. This Tetrachloromethane is not released from the solid chlorinated rubber at ambient temperatures. It can be released at elevated temperatures and when dissolved in solvents. Tetrachloromethane is an EPA Probable Human Carcinogen, an IARC Possible Human Carcinogen, and a NIOSH Carcinogen with no further explanation.

Section III Hazards Identification:

  • Accute Health Effects:  Irritating to the skin and eyes on contact. Inhalation will cause irritation to the lungs and mucus membrane. Irritation to the eyes will cause watering and redness. Reddening, scaling, and itching are characteristics of skin inflammation. Follow safe industrial hygiene practices and always wear protective equipment when handling this compound.
  • Chronic Health Effects:  This product has no known chronic effects. Repeated or prolong exposure to this compound is not known to aggravate medical conditions.
  • Accute Health Effects: This product is not listed by NTP, IARC or regulated as a Carcinogen by OSHA.

Section IV. First Aid Measures

  • First Aid For Eye:  In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician.
  • First Aid For Skin:  In case of contact, flush skin with water. Wash clothing before reuse. Call a physician if irritation occurs.
  • First Aid For Inhalation:  If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician.
  • First Aid For Ingestion:  If swallowed, call a physician immediately.

Section V. Fire and Explosion Data

  • Flammability:  Non-Flamable
  • Flash Points:  Not Applicable
  • Auto-Ignition:  Not Applicable
  • Flammable Limits:  Not Applicable
  • Extinguishing Media:  Water Spray
  • Fire Fighting Procedure:  Fire fighters and others who may be exposed to the products of combustion should be equipped with NIOSH approved positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and full protective clothing.
  • Fire/Explosion Hazards:  Under certain combustion conditions could form respiratory irritants such as phosgene, hydrogen chloride, chlorinated acids, aldehydes, ketones, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.

Section VI. Accidental Release Measures

  • Spill Or Leak Procedures: Utilize recommended protective clothing and equipment. Clean spills in a manner that does not disperse dust into the air. Spill area can be washed with water. Collect wash water for approved disposal. Keep from entering water or ground water

Section VII. Handling and Storage

  • Storage Temperatures:  Store at ambient temperature
  • Shelf Life: Unlimited in tightly closed container.
  • Special Sensitivity:  None
  • Handling/Storage Precautions: Avoid breathing dust. Avoid getting in eyes or on skin. Wash thoroughly after handling. Store in a dry place away from direct sunlight, heat and incompatible materials (see Section X). Reseal containers immediately after use. Store away from food and beverages.

Section VIII. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

  • Eye Protection: Safety glasses or goggles.
  • Skin Protection: PVC gloves with impervious boots, apron or coveralls. Employees should wash their hands and face before eating, drinking or using tobacco products.
  • Respirator: Work ambient concentrations should be monitored and if the recommended exposure limit is exceeded, a NIOSH/MSHA approved dust respirator must be worn.
  • Ventilation: Use local ventilation if dusting is a problem, to maintain air levels below the recommended exposure limit.
  • Additional Protective Measures: Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be available. Educate and train employees in the safe use and handling of hazardous chemicals.
