SPECIFIC GRAVITY :
FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARD
SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES :
DO NOT USE WATER, SAND OR CARBON DIOXIDE.
Use dry graphite, Lith-X, dry sodium chloride, or dry lithium chloride.
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full fire fighting protective clothing when fighting significant-sized fires.
Lithium fires can throw off molten lithium metal particles. Burning lithium releases corrosive lithium hydroxide dust and fumes.
Lithium metal can reignite after fire is initially extinguished. Never leave extinguished fire unattended. After all material
has apparently burned and cooled, carefully turn over remaining residue and be prepared to re-extinguish should this
reignition occur. Carefully place residue in a steel drum, using a long-handled shovel, and cover with extinguish media.
CONDITIONS OF FLAMMABILITY :
Reacts vigorously with water generating flammable and/or explosive hydrogen gas and corrosive dust (Lithium hydroxi
Presents fire and explosion risk when exposed to water, nitrogen, acids or oxidizing agents.
Elevated temperatures above melting point (180.5℃) can result in spontaneous ignition in air.
CONDITIONS TO AVOID :
Contact with water and moisture or humid air. Temperatures above the melting point
MATERIALS TO AVOID :
Reacts with moisture, oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide.
Reacts violently with : water, oxidizers, chlorinated solvents, halogens.
HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS :
Lithium does not decompose. However, it is highly reactive in contact with many other substances, releasing
large quantities of heat and/or hazardous products. It can react violently with water, the humidity in air and
the moisture in other substances, releasing hydrogen gas and/or corrosive fumes of lithium oxide and/or
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT :
Wear safety glasses or goggles and dry rubber gloves. Full flame-resistant face shield is required if the metal is in a molten
state. Avoid inhalation, contact with eyes, skin and clothing.
ENGINEERING CONTROLS :
Provide adequate ventilation, quick-drench eyewash and safety shower.
LEAK OR SPILL :
Remove all sources of ignition. To prevent ignition, cover with mineral oil and place in an oiled steel drum which is
approved for transport. Keep water and moisture away from spilled material.
Can be handled in open atmosphere at room temperature either coated with mineral oil or in low conditions of relative
humidity or under an inert gas (e.g., argon or helium). Nitrogen should not be used as the inert gas. To maintain
best quality, humidity levels of less than 2% (dew point - 30℃) are recommended.
STORAGE REQUIREMENTS :
Store in original unopened shipping container. Once opened, store in argon atmosphere, dry air or mineral oil.
Store in cool place. Keep away from water, humid air, acids and oxidizing materials. Keep away from sparks, heat and
flame. Protect shipping container from physical damage.
EXPOSURE BY CONTACT :
Eye contact :
Corrosive (may cause blindness)
Skin contact :
Corrosive (causes burns)
ROUTE OF ENTRY :
Skin absorption :
ACUTE EFFECTS :
Lithium metal is extremely destructive to tissue of the mucous membranes and upper respiratory tract. It is extremely
reactive with body moisture and is corrosive to skin, nose, throat, stomach and eyes.
Harmful if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through skin.
FIRST AID MEASURES
Immediately wipe away any particles; then flush with very large amounts of water occasionally lifting the upper and lower
lids, for at least 15 minutes. See a physician immediately.
Quickly brush away as much of the material as possible. If particles are embedded in the skin and cannot be removed,
cover area with USP Grade mineral oil and see a physician immediately. If particles are not embedded, flush with large
amounts of water. Obtain medical attention.
Remove to fresh air. If breathing difficulty occurs, administer oxygen. See a physician immediately.
Quickly wipe from the mouth as much of the material as possible and immediately rinse the mouth with large amounts of
water. See a physician immediately. DO NOT induce vomiting.
