Dangerous components: none

3 Special hazards information for man and environment

Most important dangers are :

- Products reacting with other components ( see N° 10 )
- emission of Smoke, Gasses, Dust; Skin contact ( see N° 11 )
- burning of the dust in free air ( see N° 5 )

4 First Aid Measures

After Inhalation:

- When large portions were inhaled, or when an Asthm attack starts,
one has to contact a doctor.

After skin contact :

- Rinse the afflicted zones with lots of water or take a shower.
- Take off the poluted clothes and wash them before re-using.
- Longer and repeated contacts with skin are to be avoided.
- After usage, take a bath .

After contact with eyes :

- Rinse minimum 15 minutes with water.

After swallowing :

- When a large amount was swallowed : provoque vomitting when the person;
has full consiousness
- Contact a doctor.

5 Fire-Fighting measures

Alloys of Nickel and Chrome procure no danger for fire or explosion.
When such alloy it brought in very fine condition (dust), it could lead to Explosion in free air.

Fire extictors : Water, CO2, foam

Fire extinctors not to use for security reasons : none

Risks resulting from the burning or from ist gasses : poisonning ( see N° 11 )

Special fire extintor installations: respiratory device and protection clothing are recommended.

6 Accidental release measures

Individual messures : avoid formation of dust

Messures for environment : not necessary

Cleaning methods: not necessary

7 Handling and storage

Treathment : Same caution as with all chemical substances.

Stocking : No special messures required for stocking the alloy .

8 Limits of exposure and personnal protection

Extra indications on technical devices : ( see N° 7 )

Personal Protection equipment:

- Inhalation : When the solid form of the Nickel-Chrom-alloy, during the Production,
changes in dust or smoke, keep the environmental conditions under the
indicated limits ; ( Cr < 0,050 mg/ m3 ; Co < 0,050 mg / m3 )
When the airconditionning is not sufficient, use a correct inhaling protection.

- protection of hands : protection gloves

- Eye protection : protection glasses

- Skin protection : proper clothing

11 Toxicological information

Under normal working conditions, the composition of Nickel-Chrome alloys is not very Dangerous.
When small particals are formed, then there may be an acute toxicological risk

After inhaling : Very rare are Astm attacs due to the dust provoqued.
One can see some influences on the gastro intestinal and inhalation canals.

After skin contact : Nickel-Chrome alloys could provoque inflammation or allergical reactions
to sensitive persons.

After eye contact : Inflammations, due to mechanical reasons. Workers who were in contact with electolitical aerosols, have shown eye inflammations.

After swallowing : Nickel-Chrome alloys are not absorbed by the darm canals.
The swallowing of lots of alloy could procure intestinal pains,
vomiting or poisonning.
When swallowing alloy over a long time span, kidny problems can arise.

12 Ecological information

Changeability : Not applicable

Resistance or break down : Not known

Bio obstuction potential : Studies on Nickel in the water evacuation chain have shown
Nickelkoncentration in or on the evacuation chain.
This demonstrates that there is no risk of damage to this water
evacuation chain.

Watertoxity : Above 0,05 mg/l Nickel is toxical. Nickel has an acute toxical
effect on fishes and amphibies.

Indications for ellimination : No special indications

Specific indication : Do not flush into sanitary water system
