| UN #: see Notes
| EINECS #: 215-609-9
|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Combustible. Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.||NO open flames. NO contact with hot surfaces. Prevent deposition of dust. Closed system, dust explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting.||Use powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide. In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT!|
|SYMPTOMS||ACUTE HAZARDS||FIRST AID|
|Inhalation||Cough.||Use closed system.||Fresh air, rest.|
|Skin||Protective gloves.||Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.|
|Eyes||Redness.||Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.||Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).|
|Ingestion||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.||Rinse mouth.|
|SPILLAGE DISPOSAL||CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING|
|Personal protection: complete protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus. Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.||
According to UN GHS Criteria

TLV: (inhalable fraction): 3 mg/m3, ppm, as TWA; A3 (confirmed animal carcinogen with unknown relevance to humans).
MAK: (inhalable fraction): carcinogen category: 3B
|Uses of this substance as ultra-fine particles (<100nm) (nanoparticles) may produce adverse effects at concentrations well below those indicated on this Card. Utmost care should be taken.
Depending on the process of manufacture, there are variations in their chemical compositions.
Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are reportedly present in some carbon blacks.
Carbon blacks containing over 8% volatiles may pose an explosion hazard (see Physical Dangers).
Most carbon black powders will not have a UN number, however, depending on the specification of the powder, possible UN numbers are: 1361, class 4.2, packing group I or II; or UN 1362, class 4.2, packing group III.
The GHS classification will also vary according to the specification of the powder.
