Emergency and First Aid Procedures

 

 

 

 

In the event that electrolytes gets on skin, wash immediately with water. For eye contact, flush with copious amounts of water for 15 minutes

and see physian.

Section VII - Precautions for Safe Handling and Use

Steps to Be Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled

Use neoprene, rubber latex-nitrilegloves when handling leakers. If liquid from leaker comes in contact with skin, wash immediately with

water. For eye contact, flush with copious amounts of water for 15 minutes and see physian.

Waste Disposal Method

Do not incinerate since battery may explode.

Precaution to Be Taken in Handling and Storing

The battery is extremely sensitive to adverse effect of humidity. Be sure to store them in a place which is dry and subject to little temperature

change. Do not place near the boiler or radiator, nor expose to the direct sunlight. Do not dispose of the battery in fire. Do not charge the battery.

Do not short-circuitthe battery. Do not put in backward position. Do not disassemble the battery, handling in such manner can cause the battery

to explode, leak and injury.

Other Precautions

Install batteries in accordance with equipment instructions. Replace all batteries in equipment at the same time. Do not mix battery systems of

different types. Do not carry batteries loose in your pocket or carrying bag. Check batteries periodically when in use.
