Section 3 – Hazards Identification
Appearance: light gray powder.
Warning! Harmful if swallowed. Causes eye and skin irritation and possible burns. Causes digestive
and respiratory tract irritation with possible burns. Hygroscopic (absorbs moisture from the air).
Severe marine pollutant.
Target Organs: Blood, kidneys, liver.
Potential Health Effects
Eye: Exposure to particulates or solution may cause conjunctivitis, ulceration, and corneal
abnormalities. Causes eye irritation and possible burns.
Skin: Causes skin irritation and possible burns.
Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed. May cause severe gastrointestinal tract irritation with nausea,
vomiting and possible burns. Ingestion of large amounts of copper salts may cause bloody stools and
vomit, low blood pressure, jaundice and coma. Ingestion of copper compounds may produce
systemic toxic effects to the kidney and liver and central nervous excitation followed by depression.
Inhalation: May cause ulceration and perforation of the nasal septum if inhaled in excessive
quantities. Causes respiratory tract irritation with possible burns.
Chronic: May cause liver and kidney damage. May cause anemia and other blood cell abnormalities.
Individuals with Wilson’s disease are unable to metabolize copper. Thus, copper accumulates in
various tissues and may result in liver, kidney, and brain damage. Adverse reproductive effects have
been reported in animals. Laboratory experiments have resulted in mutagenic effects. Chronic
copper poisoning in man is recognized in the form of Wilson’s disease.

Section 4 – First Aid Measures
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the
upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
Skin: Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing
contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid immediately.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, give
oxygen. Get medical aid. Do NOT use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. If breathing has ceased apply
artificial respiration using oxygen and a suitable mechanical device such as a bag and a mask.
Notes to Physician: Individuals with Wilson’s disease are more susceptible to chronic copper
Antidote: The use of d-Penicillamine as a chelating agent should be determined by qualified medical

Section 5 – Fire Fighting Measures

into storm sewers and ditches which lead to waterways. Clean up spills immediately, observing
precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Provide
ventilation. U.S. regulations require reporting spills and releases to soil, water and air in excess of
reportable quantities.

Section 7 – Handling and Storage
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse.
Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with
eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid breathing dust.

incompatible substances. Store protected from moisture.
Section 8 – Exposure Controls, Personal Protection
Engineering Controls: Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash
facility and a safety shower. Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.

48 Hr; 132 mg/L CaCO3 In soil, copper sulfate is partly washed down to lower levels, partly bound by
soil components, and partly oxidatively transformed. Copper has a strong affinity for hydrous iron
and manganese oxides, clays, carbonate minerals, and organic matter. Sorption to these materials …
suspended in the water column & in the bed sediments, results in relative enrichment of the solid
phase and reduction in dissolved levels.
Environmental: Copper is accumulated by plants and animals, but it does not appear to biomagnify
from plants to animals. This lack of biomagnification appears common with heavy metals. In air,
copper aerosols (in general) have a residence time of 2 to 10 days in an unpolluted atmosphere and
0.1 to > 4 days in polluted, urban areas.
Physical: No evidence was found to indicate that there is any biotransformation process for copper
compounds which would have a significant bearing on the fate of copper in aquatic environments.
Other: Has fungicidal properties.
