SECTION 3. COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
Substance Name: Cobalt Trifluoromethanesulfonate
CAS #: 58164-61-7
SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES
If swallowed, wash out mouth with water provided person is conscious. Call a physician immediately.
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
In case of skin contact, flush with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.
Call a physician.
In case of contact with eyes, flush with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Assure adequate flushing by separating the eyelids with fingers. Call a physician.
SECTION 5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable: Water spray.
Protective Equipment: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.
Specific Hazard(s): Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions.
SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
PROCEDURE TO BE FOLLOWED IN CASE OF LEAK OR SPILL
PROCEDURE(S) OF PERSONAL PRECAUTION(S)
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus, rubber boots, and heavy rubber gloves.
METHODS FOR CLEANING UP
Sweep up, place in a bag and hold for waste disposal. Ventilate area and wash spill site after material pickup is complete.
SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
User Exposure: Do not breathe dust. Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing. Avoid prolonged or repeated exposure.
Suitable: Keep tightly closed.
SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Airborne Exposure Limits
For Cobalt Compound
-OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL):0.1 mg/m3 (TWA) Cobalt metal dust and
fumes as Co.
-ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): inorganic cobalt compounds:0.02mg/m3 (TWA) as Co
A3: Animal Carcinogen
Thyroid effects on humans continue to be studied. Experimental tumorigenic effects have been reported for cobalt compounds. Cobalt compounds have insufficient data to be classified as a human carcinogen.
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
Personal Protective Equipment
Eyes: Wear chemical goggles
Skin: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
Respirators: Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU). Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face particle respirator type N100 (US) or type P3 (EN 143) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator.
