MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
The batteries are exempt articles and are not subject to the OSHA Hazard Communication
Standard Requirement. This sheet is provided as technical information only. The information
and recommendations set forth are made in good faith and are believed to be accurate as of the
date of preparation. However, Contour Energy Systems makes no warranty expressed or Implied.
Section 1-Product and Company Identification
Address (Number, Street, City, State, and ZIP Code):
Section 2- Composition/Information on Ingredients Section 3 – Hazards Identification This contains lithium, or ganic solvent, an d other combustible materials. For this reason,
Improper handling of the battery could lead to distortion, leakage*,overheating, explosion of fire
and cause human injury or equipment trouble. Please strictly observe safety instruction.
(*Leakage is defined as an unintended escape of liquid from a battery.)
Section 4 – First Aid Measures None unless internal materials exposure. lf contents are leaked out, observe following
Inhalation Fumes can cause respiratory imitation . Remove to fresh air and consult a physician. Skin
Immediately flush skin plenty of water. If itch or irritation by chemical bum persists, consult a physician.
Immediately flush eye with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Consult a physician immediately
If swallowing a battery, consult a physician immediately. If contents come into mouth, immediately rinse by plenty of water and consult a physician.
Section 5-Fire Fighting Measures Extinguishing Media Extinguisher of alkaline metal fire is effective.
Plenty of cold water is also effective to cool the
surrounding area and control the spread fire. But
hydrogen gas may be evolved by the reaction of water and
lithium and it can form an explosive mixture. Therefore in
the case that lots of lithium batteries are burning in a
Use self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective gear not to inhale harmful gas .
Section 6-Accidental Release Measures
Accidental Releases: Do not breathe vapors or touch liquid with bare hands (see section 4).
Waste Disposal Methods: Evacuate area. If possible, a trained person should attempt to stop or contain the
leak by neutralizing spill with s oda lime or baking soda. A NIOSH Approved Acid Gas Filter Mask or
Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus should be worn. Seal leaking battery and soda lime or baking soda in
a plastic bag and dispose of as hazardous waste.
Other: Follow North Am erican Emergency Response Guide (NAERG)#138 for cells involved in an
accident, cells that have vented, or have exploded.
Section 7-Handling and Storage 1) Handling Never swallow. Never reverse the positive and negative terminals when mounting . Never short-circuit the battery. Never heat. Never expose to open flame. Never disassemble. Never weld the terminal or wire to the body of the battery directly. Never touch the liquid leaked out of battery . Never bring fire close to battery liquid. Never keep in touch with battery. 2) Storage Never let the battery contact with water. Never store the battery in hot and high humid place.

Appearance & Odor: 1,2-Dimethoxyethane : achromatism liquid; slight aether odor. Section 10 – Stability and Reactivity Stability Stable
Section 11 – Toxicological Information
Eye Effects: Corrosive Skin Effects: Corrosive
Section 12 –Ecological Information Aquatic Toxicity: Do not let internal components enter marine environments. Avoid releases into waterways, wastewater or groundwater. Section 13 – Disposal condition The battery may be regulated by national or local regulation. Please follow the instructions of
Proper regulation. As electric capacity is left in a discarded battery and it comes into contact
With other metals, it could lead to distortion, leakage, overheating, or explosion, so make sure to
cover the (+) and (-) terminals with friction tape or some other insulator before disposal.
Section 14 – Transportation Information
Lithium battery model CR2032 is considered as “Not Restricted” cargo because they complied with IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations 51st Edition of 2010 & Section II of Packing Instruction PI 968.
Hazard Classification Class 9 (Miscellaneous)
Organizations governing the transport of lithium batteries
These regulations are based on the UN Recommendations . Each special provision provides specifications on exceptions and packaging for shipping lithium batteries. All the Lithium metal cells of Contour Energy Systems comply in all respects can be shipped as “ Not Restricted” cargo in accordance with IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations 51 Edition & Section II of Packing Instruction PI 968
If all of following 3 requirements are satisfied, lithium metal batteries can be transported as “Not Restricted” cargo.
1) Lithium weight or equivalent lithium content must be less than value in table.
*Equivalent lithium content (g) is calculated as 0.3 (g/Ah) times the rated capacity (Ah) . 2) Each cell or battery is of the type proven to meet the requirements of each test in the UN Manual of Tests and
3) Section II of Packing Instruction PI 968: a) Be marked to indicate that it contains lithium metal cells & batteries, and that special procedures be followed in
b) Each package must be labeled with a lithium battery handling label.
c) Be accompanied by a shipping paper explaining that the cells and batteries are excepted from regulations.
d) Gross Weight no more than 2.5Kgs for Pax / Cargo. e) Be capable of withstanding a 1.2m drop test in any orientation without shifting of the contents that would allow
short-circuiting, and without release of package contents.
Because the consignor has to t ake the responsibility, the customer has to confirm the exc eption conditions when
Section 15-Regulatory Information
EC Labeling : None Risk Phrases :None Safety Phrases : None Labeling is not required bec ause batteries are classified as “articles” under the Dangerous Preparations Directive and as such are exempt from the requirements of the Directive.
