ACRO Sales & Engineering, Inc. N57 W13366 Carmen Avenue Menomonee Falls, WI 53051-6101 Phone: 262-781-8940 Fax: 862-781-8964

* * * Section 2 - Hazards Identification * * *
Emergency Overview Fumes may cause irritation of the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Potential Health Effects: Eyes Irritation from contact with smoke from soldering. Potential Health Effects: Skin Possible local irritation. Potential Health Effects: Ingestion Most of the solder paste will pass through the body unabsorbed. Lead that is absorbed is caught by the liver and, in part, excreted in the bile. Potential Health Effects: Inhalation Flux fumes during soldering may cause irritation and damage of mucous membranes and pulmonary system. Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure Pre-existing conditions or diseases of the blood and blood-forming organs, Kidneys, nerves and possibly reproductive system HMIS Ratings: Health: 2 Fire: 1 HMIS Reactivity 0 Hazard Scale: 0 = Minimal 1 = Slight 2 = Moderate 3 = Serious 4 = Severe * = Chronic hazard

* * * Section 4 - First Aid Measures * * *
First Aid: Eyes Flush eyes with plenty of water First Aid: Skin Wash thoroughly with soap and water First Aid: Ingestion Stomach must be cleared, preferably by pumping. Get prompt medical attention. First Aid: Inhalation Remove victim to fresh air

* * * Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures * * *
General Fire Hazards See Section 9 for Flammability Properties. None Hazardous Combustion Products Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide, Lead oxide fumes Extinguishing Media Carbon Dioxide and Dry Chemical Fire Fighting Equipment/Instructions Use NIOSH approved self-contained breathing apparatus in case of toxic lead fumes
