HUMAN THRESHOLD RESPONSE DATA
Immediately Dangerous to
The IDLH for this product is not known. The IDLH for dibutyl phthalate is 4000 mg/m3.
Life or Health (IDLH) value(s):
The IDLH for copper and lead is 100 mg/m3. The IDLH for nitroglycerin is75mg/m3.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
The various components of this product are completely sealed within a finished metal alloy cartridge. Under normal
handling of this product, no exposure to any harmful materials will occur. However, when the product is fired, a small
amount of particles may contain trace amounts of the following harmful substances which could result in:
May cause slight irritation to the respiratory tract. Inhalation of high concentrations of the following substances could have potential health effects:
CARTRIDGES POWER DEVICES - MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET PAGE 2 OF 6
Copper Dust or fumes of metallic copper may cause nasal irritation and /or nausea,
vomiting and stomach pain.
Nitroglycerin - Will produce dilation of blood vessels and drop in blood pressure which
may affect the heart. It has also been shown to cause methemoglobinemia (cyanosis).
Lead - Ingestion of large amount can cause abdominal pain, constipation, cramps, nausea and/or vomiting. Chronic exposure to lead can cause kidney damage, anemia, reproductive effects, developmental effects and permanent nervous systems damage in humans including changes in cognitive function.
It is unlikely that these small particles that someone would be exposed to from firing would be sufficient to cause any of these effects.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE
In its solid form, there are no medical conditions known to be aggravated. Exposure to lead can aggravate anemia, cardiovascular and respiratory disease.
POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECT:
This product has not tested for environmental properties. Lead has been shown to be toxic to aquatic species.
IV. FIRST AID MEASURES
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of cool water for at least 15 minutes while holding
the eyes open. If redness, burning, blurred vision, or swelling persists, CONSULT A
Remove product and immediately wash affected area with soap and water. Do not
apply greases or ointments. Remove contaminated clothing. Wash clothing with
soap and water before reuse. If redness, burning, or swelling persists, CONSULT A
DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING
. Never administer anything by mouth to an
unconscious person. CONSULT A PHYSICIAN
Immediately remove patient to fresh air. If patient continues to experience difficulty
breathing, CONSULT A PHYSICIAN
V. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable Extinguishing Media:
Water fog, carbon dioxide or dry chemical, aqueous foam. If the fire reaches the cargo, withdraw and let fire burn.
Fire And Explosion Hazard:
If the fire reaches the cargo, do not fight. Evacuate all people, including emergency responders from the area for 1500 feet (1/3 mile) in all directions.

XII. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
No data is available on this product. Individual constituents are as follows: Copper: The toxicity of copper to aquatic organisms varies significantly not only with the species, but also with the physical and chemical characteristics of the water, such as its temperature, hardness, turbidity and carbon dioxide content. Copper concentration varying from 0.1 to 1.0 mg/l has been found by various investigators to be not toxic for most fish. However, concentration of 0.015 to 3.0 mg/l have been reported as toxic, particularly in soft water to many kinds of fish, crustacean, mollusks, insects, and plankton. Nitrocellulose: LC50 > 1000 mg/l (fish, invertebrates, algae) Nitroglycerin: Bluegill, 96 hour LC50 = 1.228 mg/l (static) Lead: LC50 (48 hrs.) to bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus) is reported to be 2-5 mg/l. Lead is toxic to waterfowl. Zinc: The following concentrations of zinc have been reported as lethal to fish:
Rainbow trout fingerlings: 0.13 mg/l, 12-24 hours Blue gill sunfish: 6 hr TLM = 1.9 3.6 mg/l (soft water, 30°C) Rainbow trout: 4 mg/l (hard water) 3 days Sticklebacks: 1 mg/l (soft water) 24 hrs
The presence of coppers to have a synergistic effect on the toxicity of zinc towards fish.
