II. COMPOSITION / INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
III. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
1. Hazard Classification: GHS
Although it is classified into the class 8 in UNRTDG, identification with skin corrosivity cannot be performed.
information that it corrodes almost all metals (ICSC (J) (2000)), there is no data based on set test methods.
May be harmful It was set as Category 5 based on rat
2001) and description that there is a report of deaths by the ingested doses (amount of ingested doses is unknown) in humans. Based on rat LC50 value (4 hour exposure):
(SIDS and 2001)), it was set as Category 2
Causes severe acid was 1 or less, it was judged to
Skin corrosion / Category 1A-1C Corrosion Danger skin burns and be a corrosive substances with the
GHS classification standards, and classified as Category 1A-1C.
From description that the critical damage to the eye accompanied by solutions of anterior chamber of eye was acknowledged in example of accident in human (ATSDR, 1998),
Causes serious and from description that moderate
irritation with 10% liquid were acknowledged to the eye of a rabbit (SIDS, 2001), and since pH of this product was two or less. So it was set as Category 1.
Skin: There is no test data on skin sensitizing
Although sulfuric acid has been industrially used for several decades, there is no case report of skin sensitization, while skin injuries by skin irritation is well known. Although an extensive amount of sulfate ion exists internally (the
allergy positive with metal may occur, sulfuric ion is presumed to result in allegic negative as is suggested by the negative results in sulffate of zinc. Based on the description that a conclusion is drawn from the results mentioned above that sulfate does not cause allergy
1998).Therefore it was put outside of the Category.
Danger Cause damage to Based on the descriptions that in the
shortness is identified (DFGOT, 2001), and at high exposure levels, acute effects such as cough, breath shortness and hemoptysis shedding etc., and permanent effects such as functional depression of lungs, fibrosis
identified (ATSDR, 1998), and that hemorrhage
dysfunction were identified by 8-hour inhalation exposure in guinea pigs (ATSDR, 1998). So it was referred
(respiratory systems). In the 28-day inhalation exposure test using rat , cell proliferation in laryngeal mucosa is acknowledged in guidance value of Category 1(SIDS (2001)), and in the 14 to 139-day
exposure test using the guinea pigs of the concentration of guidance value within the limits of Category
Causes damage 1, respiratory and lung disorder,
(testesrespiratory pulmonary emphysema, atelectasis,
organs) through hyperemia, dropsy, bleeding and
further in the 78-week inhalation exposure test using a cynomolgus, histological change as hyperplasia of a cell, the wall thickening, etc. in bronchioles
acknowledged in the dosage (0.048 mg/L, 23.5 Hr/Day) of the range of the guidance value of Category 1, so it was classified to as Category 1 (respiratory systems).
Potential Acute Health Effects
Very hazardous in case of skin contact (corrosive, irritant, permeator), of eye contact (irritant, corrosive), of
ingestion, of inhalation. Liquid or spray mist may produce tissue damage particularly on mucous membranes of
eyes, mouth and respiratory tract. Skin contact may produce burns. Inhalation of the spray mist may produce
severe irritation of respiratory tract, characterized by coughing, choking, or shortness of breath. Severe over-
exposure can result in death. Inflammation of the eye is characterized by redness, watering, and itching.
Skin inflammation is characterized by itching, scaling, reddening, or, occasionally, blistering. Potential Chronic Health Effects:
CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: Classified 1 (Proven for human.) by IARC, + (Proven.) by OSHA. Classified
A2(Suspected for human.) by ACGIH.
MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: Not available.
TERATOGENIC EFFECTS: Not available.
DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Not available.
The substance may be toxic to kidneys, lungs, heart, cardiovascular system, upper respiratory tract, eyes, teeth.
Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage. Repeated or prolonged
contact with spray mist may produce chronic eye irritation and severe skin irritation. Repeated or prolonged
exposure to spray mist may produce respiratory tract irritation leading to frequent attacks of bronchial infection.
Repeated exposure to a highly toxic material may produce general deterioration of health by an accumulation in
one or many human organs.
IV. FIRST AID MEASURES
1. Eye Contact:
Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at
least 15 minutes. Cold water may be used. Get medical attention immediately. 2. Skin Contact:
In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing
contaminated clothing and shoes. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Cold water may be used.Wash
clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention immediately. 3. Serious Skin Contact:
Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek immediate
medical attention. 4. Inhalation:
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Get medical attention immediately. 5. Serious Inhalation:
Evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or
waistband. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth
resuscitation. WARNING: It may be hazardous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation
when the inhaled material is toxic, infectious or corrosive. Seek immediate medical attention. 6.Ingestion:
Do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an
unconscious person. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Get medical attention if
symptoms appear. 7. Serious Ingestion
