Hazards and Protection.
Store in a cool, dry location (< 25 C).
Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied. Since emptied containers retain product residues (vapor, liquid, and/or solid), all hazard precautions given in the data sheet must be observed.
Wear safety glasses in compliance with OSHA regulations. Wear resistant gloves such as latex, To prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact, wear impervious clothing and boots.
3M Dust respirator No. 8710 or 9900 is recommended or a NIOSH/MSHA jointly approved dust respirator.
Small Spill - Sweep up material for disposal or recovery. Large Spill - Shovel material into containers. Thoroughly sweep area of spill to clean up any residual material.
Stable at normal temperatures and pressures.
Acetylenes, reactive metals such as aluminum and magnesium.
Oxides of carbon.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece operated in the positive pressure demand mode with appropriate turn-out gear and chemical resistant personal protective equipment. Extinguish fire using regular foam, water fog, carbon dioxide or sand.
Dusts can form explosive mixtures in air.
OSHA: PEL (8 h TWA): 1 mg/m3.
Increased temperature may be noted in some cases. Abnormally low blood pressure may occur. Mental status may be depressed.
Gastroenteritis with vomiting may occur after ingestion of some copper salts. Mucosal erosions, a metallic taste, burning epigastric sensation and diarrhea may also occur.
Metal fume fever, wheezing and rales have been reported in workers exposed to fine copper dust. Dyspnea has developed after oral copper exposure. Pulmonary edema and alveolar inflammation have been noted in animals.
Skin exposure can produce in severe irritation, itching, erythema, dermatitis and eczema; systemic toxicity may result.
Dust can cause eye irritation. Symptoms include stinging, tearing, redness, and swelling of eyes.
First aid is not normally required. If symptoms develop, seek medical attention.
