    Potential Chronic Health        Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (sensitizer).    
    CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: Not available.
    MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: Not available.
    TERATOGENIC EFFECTS: Not available.
    The substance may be toxic to kidneys, liver, skin, eyes, central nervous system (CNS).
    Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage. Repeated exposure of
    the eyes to a low level of dust can produce eye irritation. Repeated skin exposure can produce local skin
    destruction, or dermatitis. Repeated inhalation of dust can produce varying degree of respiratory irritation or
    lung damage. Repeated exposure to a highly toxic material may produce general deterioration of health by an
    accumulation in one or many human organs.

Section 4. First Aid Measures
    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. Get medical attention immediately.
    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. Wash clothing before reuse.
    Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention immediately.
    Serious Skin Contact        Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek immediate    
    medical attention.
    Inhalation        If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.    
    Get medical attention immediately.
    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.
    Ingestion        If swallowed, 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

    containers pose a fire risk, evaporate the residue under a fume hood. Ground all equipment containing
    material. Do not ingest. Do not breathe dust. Never add water to this product. In case of insufficient
    ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. If ingested, seek medical advice immediately and show the
    container or the label. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away from incompatibles such as reducing
    Storage        Keep container tightly closed. Keep container in a cool, well-ventilated area.    

Section 8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
    Engineering Controls        Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below    
    recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fume or mist, use ventilation to keep
    exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.
    Personal Protection        Splash goggles. Synthetic apron. Vapor and dust respirator. Be sure to use an approved/certified respirator    
    or equivalent. Gloves.
    Personal Protection in Case of Splash goggles. Full suit. Vapor and dust respirator. Boots. Gloves. A self contained breathing apparatus
    a Large Spill        should be used to avoid inhalation of the product. Suggested protective clothing might not be sufficient;    
    consult a specialist BEFORE handling this product.

    Toxicity to Animals
    Special Remarks on        This product is a Mercury compound. Mercury may cause adverse reproductive effects and birth defects    
    Chronic Effects on Humans        (teratogenic). Mercury may cause cancer. Mercury may affect genetic material (mutagenic)    
    Special Remarks on other        Acute Potential Health Effects.    
    Toxic Effects on Humans        Skin: Causes skin irritation with possible burns. It can be absorbed through the skin.    
    Eyes: Causes eye irritation. Exposure to vapor may cause conjunctivitis, ulceration of the cornea, discoloration
    of the front surface of the lens, and possible burns.
    Inhalation: Inhalation of high concentrations of vapor or mist can cause respiratory tract irritation and possible
    chemical burns to the respiratory tract, corrosive bronchitis, interstitial pneumonia, severe pulmonary irritation,
    lung lesions, and death from respiratory insufficiency. Mercury vapor or mist can be absorbed by the
    respiratory tract. Acute mercury intoxication is rare, but can occur after inhalation of large amounts. Vapor
    inhalation is the is the most likely route of exposure. It may cause flu-like "fume metal fever" with chills,
    malaise, respiratory symptoms (chest tightness, difficulty breathing, coughing), fever, chills, gastrointestinal
    symptoms (dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, hypermotility, stomatitis, salivation, metallic
    taste), and gingivitis. It may affect behavior/central nervous system/peripheral nervous system (depression,
    anxiety, decreased strength, muscle aches/weakness, lethargy, fatigue, headache, insomnia, dizziness,
    clumsiness or muscle incoordination, short-term memory loss, slured speech, tremor, irritability, emotional
    instability, apathy, hallucinations, mania, xenophobia, sensitivity, impaired concentration, convulsions, stupor,
    coma), liver, metabolism(anorexia), cardiovascular system (hypertension, tachycardia), urinary system (kidney
    damage, renal impairment), and blood(increased white blood cell count, thrombocytopenia, anemia). Acute
    Mercury poisoning can resemble Pheochromocytoma.
    Ingestion: May cause severe gastrointestinal tract irritation with abdominal pain, thirst, salivation, metallic taste,
    nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, and diarrhea. May affect behavior/central nervous system, peripheral nervous
    system with symptoms similar to inhalation. Absorbed Mercury may affect liver, and kidneys (tissue damage)
    Chronic Potential Health Effects:
    Skin: Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis, and it can be absorbed through the skin and
    affect behavior (symptoms similar to inhalation and ingestion), and hearing.
    Inhalation: Effects may be delayed. It may cause permanent central nervous system damage and peripheral
    neuropathy (symptoms similar to acute exposure), liver and kidney damage, and may affect the brain.
    Ingestion: Prolonged or repeated ingestion may cause accumulation of mercury in body tissues and may cause
    inflammation of the mouth and gums, salivation and loosening of teeth.
    Eyes: Prolonged or repeated eye exposure to mercury vapors may result in Mercurialentis, a brownish
    discoloration of the lens, band keratopathy, corneal opacity and impaired vision, photophobia, color vision
