    SECTION 5 FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

    EXTINGUSHING MEDIA: Graphite, dolomite or sodium chloride. Do NOT use water. UNUSUAL FIRE AND

     EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Copper powder with particles sizes 50 µm size range are classified as

    weakly explosive by the U.S. Bureau of Mines Report RI-6516. When

    present as a dust cloud, will NOT explode readily in air. Not easily ignited

    by sparks.

    FIRE FIGHTING EQUIPMENT: Wear full bunker gear including a positive pressure self-contained

    breathing apparatus.

    PRECAUTIONS: Keep away from ignition sources (e.g., heat and open flames). Use with

    adequate ventilation. Keep container closed.

    HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION: None identified.

    SECTION 6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

    1. Restrict the area to those persons wearing respiratory protection. Do not allow unprotected people into the area

    until cleanup has been completed.

    2. Ventilate the area thoroughly.

    3. Collect the powder in a manner that minimizes further dust generation (i.e., use wet or HEPA vacuum methods).

    4. Liquids containing powder should be absorbed in vermiculite, dry sand, or earth before disposal. Keep out of

    sewers and waterways.

    5. Recycle or dispose of as a waste (see Section 13).

    SECTION 7 HANDLING AND STORAGE

    Avoid dust generation. Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid dust generation from dried paste. Store powder in a dry area, -18? to 38?C.

    SECTION 8 EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

    VENTILATION REQUIREMENTS: Keep dust and fume levels below occupational exposure limits.

    Provide adequate local exhaust ventilation at the work area where

    spraying and fusing are being done.

    PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

    EYES: Wear ANSI approved chemical goggles or safety glasses as dictated

    by conditions of use.

    SKIN: The use of impervious gloves or barrier cream to protect skin is

    recommended.

    INHALATION: Do not breathe dust or fume. Use with adequate ventilation. If

    ventilation is inadequate, use NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator.

    OTHER: Eating and smoking should not be permitted in areas where dust or

    fume is present.

    dusts may react with acetylene gas to form copper acetylides,

    which are sensitive to shock. Copper mists may react with

    magnesium to form flammable hydrogen gas.

    HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION: None identified.

    HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION: Will not occur.

    SECTION 11 TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

    Copper is an essential element of mammalian metabolism. Copper metal has little or no serious toxicity. The most common adverse effect associated with copper is the acute inhalation of copper fume during refining or welding. Inhalation of copper fume or dust may result in metal fume fever, which is characterized by upper respiratory irritation, chills, metallic or sweet taste, nausea and aching muscles. Attacks usually begin after 4-8 hours of exposure and last only 24-48 hours. Inhalation of fumes has been reported to sometimes cause discoloration of the skin and hair. Nausea and vomiting may result if large amounts of copper metal are ingested. This is probably due to the conversion of the swallowed metal copper to its irritating salts. It is unlikely that poisoning by ingestion in industry would progress to a serious point because small amounts induce vomiting, emptying the stomach of copper salts. High airborne concentrations of copper metal would be expected to cause mechanical irritation of the eyes and respiratory tract. Metallic copper may cause keratinization of the hands and soles of the feet, but it is not commonly associated with industrial dermatitis.

    No component of this product present at levels greater than 0.1% is identified as a carcinogen by the U.S. National Toxicology Program, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Act, or the International Agency for Research on Cancer

    (IARC).
