Remove all sources of ignition. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate personal protection.
Precautions for response: Do not breathe the mist/spray/vapors. Remove or keep away all sources
of extreme heat or open flames.
Cleaning: Collect liquid in a sealable, solvent-resistant container. Sprinkle inert absorbent compound (such as soil, sand, vermiculite) onto spill, then sweep into the container. Wipe up further residue with paper towel and place in container. Wash spill area with soap and water to remove the last traces of residue.
Environmental precautions: Avoid releasing to the environment. Prevent spill from entering drains and waterways.
Recommendation: A metal container is suggested. Dispose of spill waste according to Section 13
Waste Disposal Methods: Dispose of waste according to Federal, State and Local Regulations.

Recommendation: Respect the time weighted average of 20 ppm for toluene.
Personal Protection Equipment
Respiratory protection:
For over-exposures up to 10 x OEL of mist/vapors/spray, wear respirator such as a half-mask respirator with organic vapor cartridges. Above 10 x OEL, use a positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator or a self-contained breathing apparatus. RECOMMENDATION:
Consult your local safety supply store to ensure your respirator has filter cartridges appropriate for the ingredients listed in section 3 of this SDS, and that the respirator is fitted to the employee by a professional.
Recommendation: Consult your local safety supply store to ensure your respirator has filter cartridges appropriate for the ingredients listed in section 3 of this
MSDS, and that the respirator is fitted to the employee by a professional. Ensure vapor cartridges are stored in sealed plastic bags when not being used.
Protective gloves:
For likely contacts, use of protective butyl rubber, fluorinated rubber, or other chemically
resistant gloves. For incidental contacts, use nitrile, neoprene, PVC gloves, or other chemically-resistant gloves.
Skin protection:
Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin contact.
Eye protection:
Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles.
Recommendation: Use safety glasses with lateral protection (side shields).
General hygiene considerations:
Wash hands thoroughly with water and soap after handling.

SECTION 11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Routes of exposure:
eyes, ingestion, inhalation, and skin.
Symptoms summary
Eyes
Cause eye redness and severe irritation.
Skin
May causes skin redness and mild irritation.
Inhalation
May cause drowsiness, dizziness, cough, headaches, nausea, unconsciousness.
Ingestion
May cause nausea, sore throat, and diarrhea (see inhalation symptoms).
Chronic
Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause skin dryness, cracking, as well as defatting the skin.
Chronic inhalation exposure to nickel dust or mist may affect the central nervous system, damage lungs, and lead to hearing loss with co-exposure to loud noises.
Ingestion or inhalation of paint material, mist, or vapor during pregnancy may increase the chances fetal death and developmental defects.
Human experience
Skin corrosion/irritation:
The toluene component is a known severe skin irritant.
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis.
Serious eye damage/irritation:
Acetone, ethanol, and ethyl acetate cause serious eye irritations. Contains mechanically abrasive particles.
Sensitization (allergic reactions): Nickel may cause skin sensitization in humans.
Carcinogenicity (risk of cancer):
Nickel is classified as a suspect carcinogen based on animal intratracheal
instillation (intubation) or interperitoneal (in body cavity) injection studies. A reliable 2008 study by Oller et al. shows no carcinogenicity for the nickel metal via normal inhalation route. Evidence of carcinogenicity of ethanol relates to excessive alcoholic beverage consumption, and doesn’t relate to exposure risks when used in the workplace or as a non-comestible consumer product.


SECTION 12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Acute ecotoxicity: Harmful to aquatic life with long lasting effects.
Chronic Ecotoxicity:
Harmful to aquatic life with long lasting effects.
Avoid release to the environment.

Related Elements

See more Nickel products. Nickel (atomic symbol: Ni, atomic number: 28) is a Block D, Group 4, Period 4 element with an atomic weight of 58.6934. Nickel Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of nickel's shells is [2, 8, 16, 2] and its electron configuration is [Ar]3d8 4s2. Nickel was first discovered by Alex Constedt in 1751. The nickel atom has a radius of 124 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 184 pm. In its elemental form, nickel has a lustrous metallic silver appearance. Nickel is a hard and ductile transition metal that is considered corrosion-resistant because of its slow rate of oxidation. Elemental NickelIt is one of four elements that are ferromagnetic and is used in the production of various type of magnets for commercial use. Nickel is sometimes found free in nature but is more commonly found in ores. The bulk of mined nickel comes from laterite and magmatic sulfide ores. The name originates from the German word kupfernickel, which means "false copper" from the illusory copper color of the ore.
