Section 2 - COMPOSITION, INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
Risk Phrases: 36
Section 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Irritating to eyes.
Potential Health Effects
Causes eye irritation.
May cause skin irritation.
Ingestion of large amounts may cause gastrointestinal irritation.
May cause respiratory tract irritation. Clinical examination of workers engaged in adipic acid manufacture found that inhaling adipic acid dust produced functional disorders of the autonomic nervous system and gastrointestinal tract and in the mucosa of the upper respiratory tract.
No information found.
Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
Eyes: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical aid.
In case of contact, flush skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid if irritation develops and persists. Wash clothing before reuse.
If swallowed, do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid.
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician:
Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. This material in sufficient quantity and reduced particle size is capable of creating a dust explosion.
For small fires, use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or chemical foam.
Section 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty conditions.
Section 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid breathing dust.
Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a tightly closed container. Keep from contact with oxidizing materials. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.
Keep away from strong bases.
Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
Use process enclosure, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to control airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower.
Exposure Limits CAS# 124-04-9: Belgium - TWA: 5 mg/m3 VLE Malaysia: 5 mg/m3 TWA Netherlands: 5 mg/m3 MAC Russia: 4 mg/m3 TWA Spain: 5 mg/m3 VLA-ED Personal Protective Equipment Eyes: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166.
Wear appropriate gloves to prevent skin exposure.
Wear appropriate protective clothing to minimize contact with skin.
Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29 CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Use a NIOSH/MSHA or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator if exposure limits are exceeded or if irritation or other symptoms are experienced.

Section 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
CAS# 124-04-9: AU8400000 LD50/LC50:
CAS# 124-04-9: Draize test, rabbit, eye: 20 mg/24H Moderate; Oral, mouse: LD50 = 1900 mg/kg; Oral, rabbit: LD50 = >11 gm/kg; Oral, rat: LD50 = >11 gm/kg.
Adipic acid - Not listed by ACGIH, IARC, or NTP.
See actual entry in RTECS for complete information.
Section 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Fish: Bluegill/Sunfish: LC50 = 97-330 mg/L; 24-96 Hr.; Static conditions, 18-22 degrees CThe Koc of adipic acid is estimated as approximately 26, using a measured log Kow of 0.08 and a regression-derived equation. According to a recommended classification scheme, this estimated Koc value suggests that adipic acid is expected to have very high mobility in soil.
