KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN – WARNING - POISON – Hazardous if swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through skin. Avoid contact with eyes, skin
or clothing. May be severely irritating or corrosive to the eyes. May be mildly irritating to the skin and in rare cases may cause skin sensitization. May cause
irritation to the respiratory tract. Large dose ingestion of copper salts may cause gastrointestinal disorders. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after
handling, and before eating, drinking or smoking. Avoid breathing dust or spray mist. Primary routes of entry are Inhalation, eye contact and skin contact.

SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES

If in eyes: Hold eye open and rinse slowly and gently with water for 15-20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5
minutes, then continue rinsing eye. Call a poison control centre or doctor treatment advice.
If swallowed: Call a poison control centre or doctor immediately for treatment advice. Have person sip a glass of water if able to swallow.
Do not induce vomiting unless told to do so by a poison control centre or doctor. Do not give anything by mouth to an
unconscious person.
If on skin or clothing: Take off contaminated clothing. Rinse skin immediately with plenty of water for 15-20 minutes. Call a poison control centre or
doctor for treatment advice.
If inhaled: Move person to fresh air. If person is not breathing, call 911 or an ambulance, then give artificial respiration, preferably by
mouth-to-mouth, if possible. Call a poison control centre or doctor for further treatment advice.
NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: Elevated urinary copper is an indication of excess copper exposure. If swallowed, perform gastric lavage with water or
0.1% solution of potassium ferrocyanide. Mucosal damage may contraindicate gastric lavage. Many copper salts by skin
contact cause itching, eczema and rarely, sensitization reactions.

Related Elements

See more Copper products. Copper Bohr Model Copper (atomic symbol: Cu, atomic number: 29) is a Block D, Group 11, Period 4 element with an atomic weight of 63.546. The number of electrons in each of copper's shells is 2, 8, 18, 1 and its electron configuration is [Ar] 3d10 4s1. The copper atom has a radius of 128 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 186 pm. Copper was first discovered by Early Man prior to 9000 BC. In its elemental form, copper has a red-orange metallic luster appearance. Of all pure metals, only silver Elemental Copperhas a higher electrical conductivity.The origin of the word copper comes from the Latin word 'cuprium' which translates as "metal of Cyprus." Cyprus, a Mediterranean island, was known as an ancient source of mined copper.

See more Sulfur products. Sulfur (or Sulphur) (atomic symbol: S, atomic number: 16) is a Block P, Group 16, Period 3 element with an atomic radius of 32.066. Sulfur Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of Sulfur's shells is 2, 8, 6 and its electron configuration is [Ne] 3s2 3p4. In its elemental form, sulfur has a light yellow appearance. The sulfur atom has a covalent radius of 105 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 180 pm. In nature, sulfur can be found in hot springs, meteorites, volcanoes, and as galena, gypsum, and epsom salts. Sulfur has been known since ancient times but was not accepted as an element until 1777, when Antoine Lavoisier helped to convince the scientific community that it was an element and not a compound.
