2. COMPOSITION / INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
・Substance or preparation: Preparation ・Information about the chemical nature of product: *1
*1 Not every product includes all of these materials. *2 The letter M means transition metal and candidates of M are Co, Mn and Ni. One compound includes
one or more of these metals and one product includes one or more of the compounds. The letter m and n means the number of atoms.
For the battery cell, chemical materials are stored in a hermetically sealed metal case, designed to withstand
temperatures and pressures encountered during normal use. As a result, during normal use, there is no physical danger of ignition or explosion and chemical danger of hazardous materials' leakage.
However, if exposed to a fire, added mechanical shocks, decomposed, added electric stress by miss-use,
the gas release vent will be operated. The battery cell case will be breached at the extreme, hazardous materials may be released.
Moreover, if heated strongly by the surrounding fire, acrid gas may be emitted. ・Most important hazard and effects
Inhalation: The steam of the electrolyte has an anesthesia action and stimulates a respiratory tract. Skin contact: The steam of the electrolyte stimulates a skin. The electrolyte skin contact causes a sore and stimulation on the skin. Eye contact: The steam of the electrolyte stimulates eyes. The electrolyte eye contact causes a sore and stimulation on the eye. Especially, substance that causes a strong inflammation of the eyes is contained.
Environmental effects: Since a battery cell remains in the environment, do not throw out it into the environment.
If the electrolyte contacts with water, it will generate detrimental hydrogen fluoride. Since the leaked electrolyte is inflammable liquid, do not bring close to fire.
Spilled internal cell materials

・Suitable extinguishing media: Plenty of water, carbon dioxide gas, nitrogen gas, chemical powder fire
・Specific hazards: Corrosive gas may be emitted during fire. ・Specific methods of fire-fighting: When the battery burns with other combustibles simultaneously, take fire-
extinguishing method which correspond to the combustibles. Extinguish a fire from the windward as much as possible.
・Special protective equipment for firefighters:
Respiratory protection: Respiratory equipment of a gas cylinder style or protection-against-dust mask Hand protection: Protective gloves Eye protection: Goggle or protective glasses designed to protect against liquid splashes Skin and body protection: Protective cloth
Spilled internal cell materials, such as electrolyte leaked from a battery cell, are carefully dealt with according
Remove spilled materials with protective equipment (protective glasses and protective gloves). Do not
inhale the gas as much as possible. Moreover, avoid touching with as much as possible.
・Environmental precautions: Do not throw out into the environment. ・Method of cleaning up: The spilled solids are put into a container. The leaked place is wiped off with dry
・Prevention of secondary hazards: Avoid re-scattering. Do not bring the collected materials close to fire.
Prevention of user exposure: Not necessary under normal use. Prevention of fire and explosion: Not necessary under normal use.
Precaution for safe handling: Do not damage or remove the external tube. Specific safe handling advice: Never throw out cells in a fire or expose to high temperatures. Do not soak cells in water or seawater. Do not expose to strong oxdizers. Do not give a strong mechanical shock or fling. Never disassemble, modify or deform. Do not connect the positive terminal to the negative terminal with electrically conductive material. Do not use in the place temperature can be high. In the case of charging, use only dedicated charger or charge according to the conditions specified by Sanyo.
Storage conditions (suitable, to be avoided): Avoid direct sunlight, high temperature, high humidity. Store in cool place (temperature: -20 ~ 35 degree C, humidity: 45 ~ 85%). Incompatible products: Conductive materials, water, seawater, strong oxidizers and strong acids Packing material (recommended, not suitable): Insulative and tear proof materials are recommended.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
No engineering measure is necessary during normal use. In case of internal cell materials' leakage,
operate the local exhaust or improve ventilation.

Specified collection or disposal of lithium ion battery is required by the law like as "battery control law" in
several nations. Collection or recycle of the battery is mainly imposed on battery's manufacturer or importer in the nations recycle is required.
Neither a container nor packing is contaminated during normal use. When internal materials leaked from
a battery cell contaminates, dispose as industrial wastes subject to special control.
In the case of transportation, avoid exposure to high temperature and prevent the formation of any
condensation. Take in a cargo of them without falling, dropping and breakage. Prevent collapse of cargo piles and wet by rain. The container must be handled carefully. Do not give shocks that result in a mark of hitting on a cell. Please refer to Section 7-HANDLING AND STORAGE also.

THYROID ASSESSMENT Hair tissue mineral analysis offers excellent information about thyroid activity and often very different information than blood tests. The hair assessment can be extremely helpful, especially in a common syndrome that one might call secondary hyperthyroidism. Most confusion arises because blood thyroid tests do not reveal much about thyroid physiology. Standard tests only
