2. Compositions /Information on Ingredients:
Chemical Nature: Alkaline zinc-manganese dioxide batteries
3. Hazards identifications
General advice: The common known rules for handling of chemicals should be obeyed. These chemicals
are contained in a sealed steel can. For consumer use, adequate hazard warnings are
printed on both the package and the battery. Potential for exposure should not exist unless
the battery leaks, is exposed to high temperatures or is mechanically or electrically abused.
Concentrated potassium hydroxide contained is caustic. Anticipated potential leakage of
potassium hydroxide is 2-20 ml, depending on battery size. Do not eat and drink batteries.
Keep batteries away from small children.
Physical-Chemical Hazards: This preparation is not classified as dangerous according to the criteria of
directive 99/45/EEC.
Hazards to man: If battery leaking, exposure to caustic ingredients may occur. Therefore, may cause
sensitization by skin contract.
Hazards to environment: N.A..
4. First–aid measures
Inhalation: In case of excessive inhalation due to leaking batteries remove to fresh air. Obtain medical
advice.
Skin Contact: If exposed to a leaking battery, remove contaminated clothing. Wash exposed areas with
plenty of water and soap. If irritation occurs, consult a physician.
