Material Safety Data Sheet 

Company Name: CocoPrime Activated Carbon Corporation
Address: La Victoria, Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines
Mobile No.: +63 917-539-9949
Chemical Name: Steam Activated Carbon
Product Use: Adsorbent
CAS No.: 744044-0
Component: Activated Carbon (Coconut Shell-Steam Activated)
Concentration(%): 98100

Physical Appearance and Odor: Product is odorless, black granular or powder material.

Emergency Overview: May be irritating to eyes, skin and respiratory tract. High airborne dust concentrations may pose an explosion hazard. Wet activated carbon present in a confined space may produce an oxygen deficient atmosphere and presents a risk of asphyxiation to persons entering those areas.

Potential Health Effects:

Eyes: Contact may produce mechanical eye irritation.

Skin: Skin irritation would not be expected from single short-term exposure to this product. Prolonged or repeated contact may produce some irritation.

Ingestion: Ingestion of this product may cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and constipation. Small amounts of this product in solution, if aspirated into the lungs, may cause mild to severe pulmonary injury, possibly death.

Inhalation: Overexposure to dusts may produce irritation of the respiratory system. Wet activated carbon may cause asphyxiation by adsorbing oxygen from confined spaces.

Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with water for 15 minutes intermittently lifting the lower and upper eyelids. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.

Skin Exposure: Wash with soap and large amounts of water. Launder clothes before reuse. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.

Inhalation: Overexposure to dusts may produce irritation of the respiratory system. Move person to fresh air immediately. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.

Ingestion: If ingested get immediate medical attention or advice. Do not induce vomiting unless instructed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, keep victim’s head lower than hips to avoid aspiration.

Flammability ……………………………… Non-flammable.

Auto-Ignition Temp ……………………. >350 °C

Flash Points ………………………………. Not applicable.

Flammable Limits ………………………. LFL and UFL Not applicable.

General Hazard: Activated Carbon is difficult to ignite and tends to burn slowly and smolder. Toxic gases may form. Hazardous Combustion May include smoke & carbon monoxide. Under certain conditions, airborne dust may be an explosion hazard. Fire Fighting Equipment: Fire fighting personnel should wear full protective equipment, including selfcontained breathing apparatus for all inside fires and larger outdoor fires.

Evacuation Procedures and Safety: Use the appropriate personal protective equipment when working with dust.

Cleanup and Disposal of Spill: Do not allow the material to enter sewerage system or open waters. Sweep up, using a dust suppressant agent, or vacuum spilled material. Wear appropriate protective gear and clothing during clean-up.

Waste Disposal Method: Dispose of all waste in accordance with federal, state and local regulations. No EPA Waste Numbers are applicable for this product’s components.

Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area. Keep container sealed. Away from direct heat.

Personal Protection: Safety glasses, gloves, and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) approved dust respirator/mask.
