Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

Lithium Polymer Battery may burst and release hazards decomposition products when exposed to a fire situation.

Lithium polymer batteries contain flammable electrolyte that may vent, ignite and produce sparks when subjected to high temperature(>150°C), When damaged or abused(e.g. mechanical damage or electrical overcharging); may burn rapidly with flare-burning effect; may ignite other batteries in clothes proximity.


Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal Precautions     Avoid contact with eyes.

Refer to section 8 for personal protective equipment. Ensure adequate ventilation. Remove all sources of ignition.

Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

Environmental precautions

Absorb with liquid-binding material(sand, diatomite, acid binders, universal binders, sawdust).

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Methods for containment   Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

Methods for cleaning up    Use personal protective equipment. Dam up. Cover liquid spill with sand, earth or other Non combustible absorbent material. Pick up and transfer to properly labeled containers. Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.


First aid measures

Eye Contact  Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water, also under the eyelids. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

Skin Contact  Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash skin with soap and water. In the case of skin irritation or allergic reactions see a physician.

Inhalation   Move to fresh air. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

Ingestion Do NOT induce vomiting. Drink plenty of water. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Swallowing Do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention.

Individual protection measures, such ad personal protective equipment

Eye/Face Protection:

Protective gloves

Material of gloves:

The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. As the product is a preparation of several substances, the resistance of the glove material can not be calculated in advance and has therefore to be checked prior to the application.

Penetration time of glove material:

The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.

Hygiene Measures

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Respiration Protection

No protective equipment is needed under normal use conditions. If exposure limits are exceeded or irritation is experienced, ventilation and evacuation may be required.
