REPORTED AS CARCINOGEN OR POTENTIAL CARCINOGEN:
International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC
SECTION IV - FIRST AID MEASURES
Inhalation: Remove from area to fresh air. If not breathing, clear airway and start mouth-to mouth artificial respiration or use a bag-mask respirator. Get immediate medical attention. If victim is having trouble breathing, transport to medical care and, if available, give supplemental oxygen.
Eye Contact: Immediately rinse eyes with water. Remove any contact lenses. Hold eyelids apart to ensure rinsing of the entire surface of the eyes and lids with water. Continue flushing eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation develops.
Ingestion: DO NOT include vomiting. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious or convulsing person. Get immediate medical attention.
NOTE TO PHYSICIAN - None
SECTION V - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

General Hazard: This product is combustible.
Extinguishing Media: For small fires, use foam, CO2, or dry chemical. For large fires, use water spray, fog, or foam.
Special Firefighting Instructions: Move containers from area if it can be done without risk.
Firefighting Equipment: As in any fire, wear NIOSH approved, positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective gear.
SECTION VI - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Wear appropriate protective equipment ( See Section 8).
SECTION VII - HANDLING AND STORAGE
Wear appropriate protective equipment ( See Section 8). Avoid contact with eye, skin and clothes. Avoid breathing vapors. Keep container closed when not in use. Use with sufficient ventilation to keep area bellow established exposure levels. Wash thoroughly after handling.
Product is combustible.
Keep container tightly closed. Isolate from incompatible materials (see Sect. 10).
SECTION VIII - EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
Use local exhaust or general dilution ventilation system.
Respirator: Use NIOSH approved equipment only. For exposure above the exposure limit, use a respirator that has been selected be an industrial hygienist or other technically qualified person for the specific work conditions. If respirators are used, OSHA requires compliance with its respiratory program.
Eye Protection: Wear vented safety goggles or safety glasses.
Gloves: Nitrile gloves.
Clothing: Wear clothing that will protect the skin from exposure to this chemical. During emergency or while making repairs, wear clothing that will not allow this chemical to penetrate.
Other: Eye wash.

SECTION XI - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
For Carbon Black: IAWC-Group 2B Possibly carcinogenic to humans
For Product: Not established
For Titanium Dioxide: Trochimowicz, et al., J.Appl. Tox., 8, 383-385 (1988).
Oral LD50 (rat) >25 g/kg
Dermal LD50 (rabbit) >10 g/kg
Inhalation LC50 (rat) >6.82 mg/1 (4 hr)
E.I. DuPont's Haskel Toxicology Laboratory conducted life time inhalation studies of respirable titanium dioxide at levels up to 250 mg/m³ ; no compound related clinical signs of toxicity were seen in the exposed animals. Slight pulmonary fibrosis was seen at 50 to 250mg/m³ respirable titanium dioxidebut not at 10mg/m³. There was no evidence of cancer in animals exposed to 10 or 50 mg/m³ respirable titanium dioxide. Microscopic lung tumors were seen in 17 percent of the rats exposed to 250mg/m³ respirable titanium dioxide. The lung tumors observed in the rats were different from common human lung cancers, relative to anatomic type and location, and occurred only at dust levels which overwhelmed the animals lung clearance mechanism and therefore, are of questionable biological relevance for man.
Results of a DuPont epidemiology study showed that employees who had been exposed to titanium dioxide pigments were at no greater risk of developing lung cancer than were employees who had not been exposed to titanium dioxide pigments. No pulmonary fibrosis was found in any of the employees and no associations were observed between titanium dioxide pigment exposure and chronic respiratory disease or lung abnormalities. Based on the results of this study, DuPont concluded that titanium dioxide pigment will not cause lung cancer or chronic respiratory disease in humans at concentrations experienced in the workplace. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) conducted a feed study in rats and mice in which either 25,000 or 50,000 parts per million titanium dioxide was given in their diet for two years. Under the condition of the NCI test, titanium dioxide did not cause cancer by the oral route.
Titanium dioxide has been classified by the American Congress of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) as an A4 Carcinogen - Not Classifiable as a Human Carcinogen. ("1999TLVs and BEIs," p.67). It has been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as Group 3 - Not Classifiable as to Its Carcinogenicity to Humans. (IARC Monograph 47. 1989).
