SECTION 5 : HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION

Under normal operating conditions, the internal material will not be hazardous to your health. Only internally exposed material during production or case breakage or extreme heat (fire) may be hazardous to your health.

Routes of Entry

Installation

Acid mist from formation process may cause respiratory irritation.

Skin Contact

Acid may cause irritation, burns and/or ulceration.

Skin Absorption

Not a significant route of entry.

Eye Contact

Acid may cause sever irritation, burns, cornea damage and/or blindness.

Ingestion

Acid may cause irritation of mouth, throat, esophagus and stomach.

Sign and Symptoms of Over Exposure:

Acute Effects

Over exposure to lead may lead to loss of appetite, constipation, sleeplessness and fatigue. Over exposure to acid may lead to skin irritation, corneal damage of the eyes and upper respiratory system.

Chronic Effects

Lead and its components may cause damage to kidneys and nervous system. Acid and its components may cause lung damage and pulmonary conditions.

Potential to Cause Cancer

The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified “strong inorganic acid mist containing sulfuric acid” as a Category 1 carcinogen, a substance that is carcinogenic to humans. This classification does not apply to liquid forms of sulfuric acid or sulfuric acid solutions contained within a battery. Inorganic acid mist is not generated under normal use of this product. Misuse of the product, such as overcharging, may however result in the generation of sulfuric acid mist.

Emergency and First Aid Procedures

Inhalation

Remove from exposure and apply oxygen if breathing is difficult.

Skin

Wash with plenty of soap and water. Remove any contaminated clothing.

Eyes

Flush with plenty of water immediately for at least 15 minutes. Consult a physician.

Ingestion

Consult a physician immediately.

California Proposition 65

The State of California has determined that certain battery terminals and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds, chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and reproductive harm.

Warming: Wash hands thoroughly after handling batteries.

 

SECTION 6  FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD DATA

Flash Point

Hydrogen = 259oC

Auto ignition Temperature

Hydrogen = 580oC

Extinguishing Media

Dry Chemical, foam, CO2

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards

Hydrogen and oxygen gases are produced in the cells during normal battery operation (hydrogen is flammable and oxygen supports combustion). These gases enter the air through the vent caps. To avoid the chance of a fire or explosion, keep sparks and other sources of ignition away from the battery.

 

SECTION 7   REACTIVITY DATA

Stability

Stable

Conditions to Avoid

Sparks and other sources of ignition

Incompatibility: (materials to avoid)

1

Lead/lead compounds: Potassium, carbides, sulfides, peroxides, phosphorus, sulfur.

2

Battery electrolyte (acid): Combustible materials, strong reducing agents, most metals, carbides, organic materials, chlorates, nitrates, picrates, and fulminates.

Hazardous Decomposition Products

1

Lead/lead compounds: Oxides of lead and sulfur.

2

Battery electrolyte (acid): Hydrogen, sulfur dioxide, and sulfur trioxide.

Conditions to Avoid

High temperature. Battery electrolyte (acid) will react with water to produce heat. Can react with oxidizing or reducing agents.

 

SECTION 8: CONTROL MEASURES

Engineering Controls:

Store lead/acid batteries with adequate ventilation. Room ventilation is required for batteries utilized for standby power generation. Never recharge batteries in an unventilated, enclosed space.

Work Practices:

Do not remove vent caps. Follow shipping and handling instructions that are applicable to the battery type. To avoid damage to terminals and seals, do not double-stack industrial batteries.

 

SECTION 9 : PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

Respiratory Protection:

None required under normal handling conditions. During battery formation (high-rate charge condition), acid mist can be generated which may cause respiratory irritation. Also, if acid spillage occurs in a confined space, exposure may occur. If irritation occurs, wear a respirator suitable for protection against acid mist.

Eyes and Face:

Chemical splash goggles are preferred. Also acceptable are "visor-gogs" or a chemical face shield worn over safety glasses.

Hands, Arms, Body:

Vinyl coated, VC, gauntiet type gloves with rough finish are preferred.

Other Special Clothing and Equipment:

Safety shoes are recommended when handling batteries. All footwear must meet requirements of

 

SECTION 10 : PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE

Hygiene Practices:

Following contact with internal battery components, wash hand thoroughly before eating, drinking, or smoking.

Respiratory Protection:

Wear safety glasses. Do not permit flames or sparks in the vicinity of battery(s). If battery electrolyte (acid) comes in contact with clothing, discard clothing.

Protective Measures:

a.

Remove combustible materials and all sources of ignition. Cover sills with soda ash (sodium carbonate) or quicklime (calcium oxide). Mix well. Make certain mixture is neutral then collect residue and place in a drum or other suitable container. Dispose of a hazardous waste.

b.

Wear acid-resistant boots, chemical face shield, chemical splash goggles, and acid-resistant gloves.

Do not release un-neutralized acid.

Waste Disposal Method:

Battery electrolyte (acid): Neutralize as above for a spill, collect residue, and place in a drum or suitable container. Dispose of as hazardous waste. Do not flush lead contaminated acid to sewer.

Batteries:

Send to lead smelter for reclamation following applicable Federal, state and local regulations. Product can be recycled along with automotive lead acid batteries.

Other Handling and Storage Precautions:

None Required.

 

SECTION 11 : NFPA HAZARD RATING

Sulfuric Acid:

Flammability (Red) =

Comments:

FIRSTPOWER seal lead-acid batteries are classified as "non-spillable" for the purpose of transportation by DOT, and IATA/ICAO as result of passing the Vibration and Pressure Differential Test described in DOT[49 CFR 173.159(d) and IATA/ICAO [Special Provision A67].

FIRSTPOWER seal lead-acid batteries can be safely transported on deck, or under deck stored on either a passenger or cargo vessel as result of passing the Vibration and Pressure Differential Tests as described in the regulations.

To transport these batteries as "non-spillable" they must be shipped in a condition that would protect them from short-circuits and be securely packaged so as to withstand conditions normal to transportation by a consumer, in or out of a device, they are unregulated thus requiring no additional special handling or packaging.

For all modes of transportation, each battery outer package is labeled "NON-SPILLABLE" per 49 CFR 173.159(d). If you repackage our batteries either as batteries or as a component of another product you must label the outer package "NON-SPILLABLE" per 49 CFR 173.159(d).
