Appearance, Color and Odor: Solid object with no odor.
Primary Routes(s) of Exposure: These chemicals are contained in a sealed enclosure. Risk of exposure occurs
only if the cell or pack is mechanically, thermally, electrically or physically abused to the point of compromising the
If this occurs, exposure to the electrolyte solution contained within can occur by inhalation, ingestion, eye contact
and skin contact.
Potential Health Effect(s):
Acute (short term): see Section 8 for exposure controls.
In the event that this cell or pack has been ruptured, the electrolyte solution contained within the cell would
be corrosive and can cause burns to skin and eyes.
Inhalation: Inhalation of materials from a sealed cell is not an expected route of exposure. Vapors or mists
from a ruptured cell may cause respiratory irritation.
Ingestion: Swallowing of materials from a sealed cell is not an expected route of exposure. Swallowing the
contents of an open cell can cause serious chemical burns to mouth, esophagus, and gastrointestinal tract.
Skin: Contact between the cell and skin will not cause any harm. Skin contact with the contents of an open
cell can cause severe irritation or burns to the skin.
Eye: Contact between the cell and the eye will not cause any harm. Eye contact with the contents of an open
cell can cause severe irritation or burns to the eye.
CHRONIC (long term): see Section 11 for additional toxicological data.
Interactions with other chemicals: Immersion in high conductivity liquids may cause corrosion and breaching of
the cell or battery enclosure. The electrolyte solution inside of the cells may react with alkaline (basic) materials
and present a flammability hazard.
Potential Environmental Effects: Not Available.
