A material safety data sheet (MSDS) is a form containing data regarding the properties of a particular substance. An important component of product stewardship and workplace safety, it is intended to provide workers and emergency personnel with procedures for handling or working with that substance in a safe manner, and includes information such as physical data (melting point, boiling point, flash point, etc.), toxicity, health effects, first aid, reactivity, storage, disposal, protective equipment, and spill handling procedures.
We are considering the Worksafe Australia Exposure Standard. Battery Equaliser™ is designed to be added to existing batteryelectrolyte. Lead acid batteries carry potential dangerous acid. The application of Battery Equaliser™ should be carried out with care as would be assimilated to that normal battery water top up.
Remove all jewellery from hands; wear safety goggles and plastic gloves. Work away from open flames and no smoking, hydrogen gas that batteries make when charging is very explosive. Sulphuric Acid eats up cotton clothing, but does not affect polyester or wool. When doing electrical work on vehicles it is best to disconnect the ground cable. Just remember you are messing with corrosive acid, explosive gases and 100’s amps of electrical current.
First Aid: In contact with skin and eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water. If swallowed, and more than 15 minutes from a hospital, induce vomiting preferably using Ipecac Syrup APF.
