Material Safety Data Sheet
Under normal use, this battery is not expected to expose user to hazardous ingredients.
USA: This battery is an article pursuant to 29 CFR 1910.1200 and, as such, is not subject to the OSHA
Hazard Communication Standard requirement. The information contained in this Material Safety Data
Sheet contains valuable information critical to the safe handling and proper use of the product. This
MSDS should be retained and available for employees and other users of this product.
Canada: This is not a control ed product under WHMIS. This product meets the definition of a
“manufactured article” and is not subject to the regulations of the Hazardous Products Act.
Section 3 - Hazards Identification
Preparation Hazards and Classification:
Not dangerous with normal use. The materials within the
battery may only represent a hazard if the structural integrity of the battery is compromised. Do not
expose the batteries to fire or open flame. Do not mix batteries of varying sizes, chemistries, or types.
Do not short circuit, puncture, incinerate, crush, over-charge, over discharge, or expose the batteries to
temperatures above or below the declared limit. Damage to the batteries will result in the risk of fire or
explosion, which could release dangerous hydrogen fluoride gas and exposure to the ingredients
contained within or their combustion products could be harmful.
Appearance, Color, and Odor: Solid object, no odor.
Primary Route(s) of Exposure: Risk of exposure will only occur if the battery cell is mechanically,
thermally, or electrically damaged and the enclosure is compromised. If this occurs, exposure to
electrolyte solutions contained within the battery cell may occur by inhalation, eye contact, skin contact
and ingestion.
Potential Health Effects:
Inhalation: Inhalation of material from a sealed battery is not an expected route of
exposure. Vapors or mists from a ruptured battery may cause respiratory irritation.
Ingestion: Swallowing of material from a sealed battery is not an expected route of
exposure. Swal owing mists from a ruptured battery may cause respiratory irritation,
chemical burns of the mouth and gastrointestinal tract irritation.
Skin: Contact between the battery and skin wil not cause any harm. Skin contact with
positive and negative terminals of high voltages may cause burns to the skin. Skin
contact with a ruptured battery can cause skin irritation.
Eye: Eye contact with the contents of a ruptured battery can cause severe irritation to
the eye.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: Medical conditions related to potential exposure
modalities may be exacerbated by exposure to the materials.
Section 4 – First Aid Measures
Skin Contact:
Remove affected articles of clothing. Wash affected area with lukewarm water for at least
30 minutes. If irritation or pain persists, seek medical attention.
Eye Contact: Wash affected eye with lukewarm water for at least 30 minutes. Rinse with saline solution
if possible. Seek medical attention.
Inhalation: Move victim to fresh air and remove source of contamination from area. Seek medical
Ingestions: Drink plenty of water and induce vomiting. Seek medical attention immediately.
Material Safety Data Sheet
Caution: In all cases evacuate the contaminated area. If irritation persists, seek medical assistance at
Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures
Extinguishing Media:
Water, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder and foam are most effective means
to extinguish a battery fire
Fire Fighting Procedure: Put on ful y protective gear, including self-contained positive pressure
breathing apparatus, goggles, fireproofing jacket and gloves. Caution is advised during application of
water because burning particles may be ejected from the fire.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Exposing battery cell to excessive heat, fire or over voltage
condition may cause a leak, fire, hazardous vapors and hazardous decomposition products. Damaged or
opened cells or batteries can result in rapid heating and the release of flammable vapors and potentially
dangerous gases that may be heavier than air and could travel along the ground or be moved by
ventilation to an ignition source.
Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures
The material contained within the batteries cells is only expelled if the battery is damaged. Evacuate the
area. Wear protective clothing and glasses. Use a shovel and cover battery with sand or vermiculite,
place in an approved container and dispose in accordance with section 13.
Section 7 – Handling and Storage
Do not expose battery or cell to extreme temperatures or fire. Do not disassemble, crush or
puncture battery. Do not overcharge or overdischarge the battery. Do not mix batteries of varying types
or sizes. Do not connect positive and negative terminals or place the batteries on conductive metal.
Storage: Insulate positive and negative terminals to avoid short circuit and ensure sufficient clearance
between batteries and other surfaces. Store in a dry, cool (below 30°C and above -10°C) and well
ventilated area and avoid fire, heat. Elevated temperatures can result in reduced battery life and venting
of flammable liquid and gases. Keep batteries away from strong oxidizers and acids.
Section 8 – Exposure Controls and Personal Protection
Respiratory Protection:
Not necessary under normal use. In case of battery or cell rupture, use a self
contained full face respiratory mask.
Eye Protection: Not necessary under normal use. Wear safety goggles if handling a ruptured or leaking
battery cell.
Hand Protection: Not necessary under normal use. Wear Viton rubber gloves if handling a ruptured or
leaking battery cell.
Skin Protection: Not necessary under normal use. Wear rubber apron and Viton rubber gloves if
handling a ruptured or leaking battery cell.
