Section 2 - Composition, Information on Ingredients

CAS# Chemical Name Percent EINECS/ELINCS
7646-79-9 Cobaltous chloride 100 231-589-4

Section 3 - Hazards Identification


Appearance: clear light-blue solid.
Warning! Harmful if swallowed. Causes respiratory tract irritation. Causes eye and skin irritation. May cause cancer based on animal studies. Hygroscopic (absorbs moisture from the air). May cause sensitization by inhalation and by skin contact.
Target Organs: Lungs, cardiovascular system, skin.

Potential Health Effects
Eye: Causes eye irritation.
Skin: Causes skin irritation. Chronic exposure may result in sensitization.
Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed. Causes gastrointestinal tract irritation.
Inhalation: Causes respiratory tract irritation. May cause asthmatic attacks due to allergic sensitization of the respiratory tract.
Chronic: Cobalt compounds may cause cancer based upon animal studies.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures

Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid imme diately.
Skin: Get medical aid immediately. Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid immediately. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water.
Inhalation: Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Notes to Physician: Use of chelators such as BAL penicillamine and N-acetylpenicillamine should be considered.

Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures

General Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Vapors may be heavier than air. They can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas.

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures

General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks: Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Sweep up, then place into a suitable container for disposal. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Provide ventilation.

Section 7 - Handling and Storage

Handling: Use only in a well-ventilated area. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Wash clothing before reuse.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Keep containers tightly closed.

Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection

Engineering Controls: Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below the permissible exposure limits.
