2.Composition/Information On Ingridents

Component name : Carbon. Element-Group
CAS No : 7440.44.0
Conc.( %w/w) : Carbon (90 to 100%), Inert ingredients (0 to 10%)

3.Hazard Identification:


Human : May be irritating to eyes, skin and respiratory tract. High airborne dustConcentrations may pose an explosion hazard.
Eyes : Carbon particles may cause physical irritation.
Skin : Prolonged or repeated contact may cause dryness or chapping of exposed Area. Chronic skin exposure may discolor the hair follicle.
Ingestion : Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal irritation, vomiting and Constipation.
Inhalation : Overexposure may cause irritation to respiratory system due to carbon deposition in the lungs and the respiratory tract.
Ecological : No information found.

4.First Aid Measures:

Eyes : Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water. Seek medical attention if Irritation persists.
Skin : Wash with soap and water to avoid drying and chopping of skin.
Ingestion : Only qualified medical personal should conduct use of this product for medicinal purposes. If swallowed get immediate medical attention or avoid

5.Fire Fighting Measures:

Flash point : 400 to 500 deg.C
Extinguishing media : Dry chemical, foam, carbon dioxide, water fog etc.
Special exposure hazards: : Steam activated carbon is combustible but not easily ignitable below 200C and self-ignition in air is at well above 350C.Activated carbon is an electrical conductor and should therefore not be allowed to accumulate as dust on open electrical circuits. Electrical outlets, lights and motors in dry carbon feed and storage areas should be of such construction as to preclude the entrance of carbon dust. Suspension of powdered activated carbon may explode if exposed to strong sources of ignition. Upon combustion, this product may emit carbon monoxide and low molecular weight hydrocarbons. Other materials adsorbed on to the carbon also be released during combustion.
Protective equipment for fire- fighting: : In the event of fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self -contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive mode.
FIRE fighting guidance : Fire fighters should wear full protective clothing including self contained breathing apparatus. Avoid direct stream at pressure on the carbon to prevent dispersal of shouldering particles, which could spread the fire.

6.Accidental Release Measures:

Personal Precautions : Wet activated carbon removes oxygen from air causing a severe hazard to all inside carbon vessels and enclosed or confined spaces. Before entering such an area, sampling and work procedures for low oxygen levels should be taken to ensure ample oxygen availability, observing all local, state and federal regulations.
Environmental Precautions : Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid breathing dust. Keep container closed. Use adequate ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling
Spillage : No information found

7.Handling and Storage:

Handling and storage : Project against damage. Store in cool, dry well- ventilated location, away from any area where the fire hazard may be acute. Outside or detached storage is preferred. Separate from incompatibles. Containers should be bonded and grounded for transfers to avoid static sparks. Storage and use areas should be no smoking areas. Use non sparking type tools and equipment, including explosion proof ventilation. Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (Dust, solids): observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product

8.Exposure Controls/Personal Protection:

Engineering controls : No information found
Respiratory protection : For conditions of use where exposure to the dust or mist apparent, a half-face dust/mist respirator may be worn. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use full-face positive pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
Hand protection : Use protective gloves
Ingestion : No adverse effects expected. May cause mild irritation to the gastrointestinal tract. The oral LD 50 (Rat) is 10g/kg.
Eye Contact : No adverse effects expected. May cause mild irritation, possible reddening
