SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Inhalation: If cough, shortness of breath or other breathing problems occur, move to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Seek medical attention if symptoms persist.
Skin Exposure: Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Seek medical attention if redness, swelling, itching, burning or visual disturbances occur. Thoroughly wash clothing and shoes before reuse.
Eye Exposure: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Seek medical attention if redness, swelling, itching, burning or visual disturbances occur.
Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If conscious, give several glasses of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If large quantities of this material are swallowed, call a physician immediately.


SECTION 5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES

Flammable Hazard: Organic solvents may form peroxides of unknown stability.
Flammability Data: Flash Point > 190°F
Explosion Limits: Not established for this product.
Autoignition Temperature: Not established for this product.
Fire Extinguishing Media: For small (incipient) fires, use media such as “alcohol” foam, dry
chemical, or carbon dioxide. Use very large quantities (flooding) of water applied as a mist or spray; solid streams of water may be ineffective. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water.
Firefighting: Wear suitable protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus. Combustible liquid. Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions.


SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal Precautions: Ensure adequate ventilation. Remove all sources of ignition. Use personal protective equipment. Beware of vapors accumulating to form explosive concentrations. Vapors can accumulate in low areas.
Spill Procedure: Evacuate area. Shut off all sources of ignition. Do not allow material to be released to the environment without proper governmental permits.
Spill Clean-Up: Absorb with sand and place in closed containers for disposal. Ventilate
area and wash spill site after material pickup is complete.


SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Handling/Usage Precautions: Avoid inhalation of aluminum ink/paste aerosol. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust, aerosol, or mist. Do not breathe aerosols or dust from dried material. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery and at places where dust can be generated.
Avoid prolonged or repeated exposure.
Storage Precautions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool dry place. Keep in properly labeled containers. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Minimize exposure to air. If peroxide formation is suspected, do not open or move container.


SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

Engineering Controls: Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to minimize
airborne concentration of vapors. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are proximal to the work-station location.
Personal Protective Equipment: Safety glasses and compatible chemical-resistant gloves. Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a
NIOSH approved full-face respirator with multi-purpose combination respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator.
General Hygiene Measures: Wash thoroughly after handling. Wash contaminated clothing before
reuse. Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.
Exposure Limits: There are no exposure limits for this specific product.

Related Elements

See more Aluminum products. Aluminum (or Aluminum) (atomic symbol: Al, atomic number: 13) is a Block P, Group 13, Period 3 element with an atomic weight of 26.9815386. It is the third most abundant element in the earth's crust and the most abundant metallic element. Aluminum Bohr Model Aluminum's name is derived from alumina, the mineral from which Sir Humphrey Davy attempted to refine it from in 1812. It wasn't until 1825 that Aluminum was first isolated by Hans Christian Oersted. Aluminum is a silvery gray metal that possesses many desirable characteristics. It is light, nonmagnetic and non-sparking. It stands second among metals in the scale of malleability, and sixth in ductility. It is extensively used in many industrial applications where a strong, light, easily constructed material is needed. Elemental AluminumAlthough it has only 60% of the electrical conductivity of copper, it is used in electrical transmission lines because of its light weight. Pure aluminum is soft and lacks strength, but alloyed with small amounts of copper, magnesium, silicon, manganese, or other elements it imparts a variety of useful properties. Aluminum was first predicted by Antoine Lavoisierin 1787 and first isolated by Friedrich Wöhler in 1827.
