3: CHEMICAL /PHYSICAL DATA Not applicable. This item is a light bulb. Up to 8 foot long and up to 1.5 inches in diameter
SECTION 4: FIRE AND EXPLOSION DATAFIRE AND EXPLOSION DATA NOT APPLICABLE — under extreme heat, glass envelope might melt or crack. SECTION 5: REACTIVITY DATA Stability: Lamp is stable.
Polymerization: Not applicable.
Incompatibility: Glass will react with Hydrofluoric Acid. SECTION 6: HEALTH HAZARD DATA Not applicable to the intact lamp. Breakage of the lamp may result in some exposure to the
phosphor powder dust and to a very little amount of elemental mercury vapor. No adverse
affects are expected from occasional exposure to broken lamps, but as a matter of good practice,
prolonged or frequent exposure should be avoided through the use of adequate ventilation during
disposal of large quantities of lamps.
EMERGENCY FIRST AID:
SUCH OCCUR THROUGH LAMP BREAKAGE.NORMAL FIRST AID PROCEDURE FOR GLASS CUTS IFMSDS — Fluorescent Lamp F40T12/Advantage Non ALTO
SECTION 7: PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USAGE Normal precautions should be taken for the collection of broken glass.
Waste Disposal Method: At the end of rated life, when this lamp is removed from service, it will
be subjected to the current Toxic Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) prescribed by the
Environmental Protection Agency. This test is used to determining whether an item is a
hazardous waste or a non-hazardous waste under current E. P. A. definition. These lamps would
fail the TCLP test and would be considered hazardous under the Universal Waste Rules.
Generators should evaluate all of the disposal options, which may be available in the particular
state in which the generator’s facility is located. The generator should check with federal, state
and local officials for their guidance. Philips encourages recycling of its products by qualified
SECTION 8: CONTROL MEASURES Respiratory Protection: None. NIOSH-approved respirator might be used if large volumes of Lamps are being broken for disposal.
Ventilation: Avoid inhalation of any airborne dust. Provide local exhaust when disposing of
large quantities of lamps.
Hand and Eye Protection: Appropriate hand and eye protection should be worn when disposing
of large quantities of lamps or handling broken lamps. SECTION 9: REGULATORY INFORMATION As a product these mercury containing lamps being shipped in the manufacturer’s original
packaging are not regulated by air, truck or ocean shipment. As a waste, these spent fluorescent
lamps would be regulated in various states and local communities. This material safety data sheet
does not constitute “knowledge of the waste”, in certain jurisdictions.
