Product or Trade Name.... Graphite (commonly called "carbon") fiber
Emergency Overview:
Contains no ingredients now known to be hazardous by OSHA.

The normal cutting of the fiber, either with scissors or razor blade

is suspected of generating small amounts of possibly respirable fibers.

We believe that such fiber cutting should be done in a ventilated hood

Section 2 Composition

Name CAS # Approximate Weight %
Graphite 7782-42-5 >99.99%
No hazardous components as defined by OSHA.
313 Listed Chemicals

If none are listed here, there are no 313 chemicals present above

threshold values.

NFPA (Scale 0-4):

Not known

Section 3: Hazard Identification

Potential Health Effects:

Eye: Dust may cause eye irritation
Skin Contact: Dust may cause skin irritation.
Skin Absorption: Not expected to be a major route of entry.
Ingestion: Not known
Inhalation: Small graphite fibers or dust are suspected as being possible

inhalation hazards.

Chronic effects: A review of the literature does not show obvious long

term hazard.

Carcinogenicty: No component known to be present in this product and is

at > 0.1% is presently listed as a carcinogen by IARC

or OSHA unless other wise noted.
Routes of exposure: Inhalation
Permissible exposure:

15 MCCPF OSHA TWA, 10 mg/m3 ACGIH TWA (Total Dust)

CIRCLA Hazard Ratings:

Toxicity: 1 Ingnitgability: 0 Reactivity: 0 Persistence: 3

Toxicological Information:
Graphite causes benign pneumoconiosis (graphitosis). Symptoms of

pneumoconiosis from graphite exposure are dypsnea, coughing, black sputum,

bronchitis, ventricular hypertropy and impairment of pulmonary function.

X-rays will show progressive nodulation of the lungs. The theshold limit

value was set in conformity with the limit for free crystalline silica,

which may be present in graphite.


Strong oxidizers,fluorine, peroxides

Route of entry: Inhalation, Skin or eye contact.

Target organs: Lungs, Cardiovascular system.


Coughing, forceful expiration. Dyspnea, difficulty in breathing.

Black sputum, black colored expectorate. Bronchitis, inflamed bronchial

mucous membranes, pulmonary fibrosis, fibrous tissue involving lungs.

Pneumoconiosis, degenerative respiratory disease.

Section 4: First Aid Measures

Eyes: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of

flowing water for at least 15 minutes, retracting eye lids often.

Get medical attention immediately. Contact lenses should not be

worn when working with this product.
Skin: Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and water. Flush with luke warm

water for 15 minutes.

Inhalation: If large amounts of the dust are inhaled, move the exposed

person to fresh air at once. If symptoms persist contact

Ingestion: Not known

Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures

Flammability classification: Not classified.

Flash Point/Method: Not known, but very high!

Section 6: Accidental Release Measures

This product is not subject to "accidental release" in the form of

normal use.

Section 7: Handling and Storage

Storage and handling:

Store in the plastic bags in which the product is shipped, tightly sealed.

Section 8: Exposure Controls and Personal Protection

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

Eye/Face Protection:

ANSI 87.1 approved safety glasses with side shield when sharpening these

rods, either with razor blade or carbon rod sharpener or plain wood file.
Skin Protection:

No particular protection needed when handling this material on an

occasional basis. For converting bulk rolls of the fiber into smaller

packs, we recommend the wearing of some kind of gloves, for example,

latex gloves.
Respiratory Protection:

For the occasional cutting of a fiber, special protection is not

needed, provided it is done in a chemical fume hood with exhaust.
Other: None known
