If material gets into the eyes, immediately flush eyes gently with
water for at least 15 minutes while holding eyelids apart. If symptoms develop as a result of vapor exposure, immediately move
individual away from exposure and into fresh air before flushing as recommended above. Seek immediate medical attention..
Immediately flush skin with water for at least 15 minutes while
removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Seek immediate medical
attention. Wash clothing before reuse and discard contaminated
Seek immediate medical attention. Do not induce vomiting.
Vomiting will cause further damage to the mouth and throat. If
individual is conscious and alert, immediately rinse mouth with
water and give milk or water to drink. If possible, do not leave
If symptoms develop, immediately move individual away from
exposure and into fresh air. Seek immediate medical attention;
keep person warm and quiet. If person is not breathing, begin
artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, administer
|Note to Physicians||
Preexisting disorders of the following organs (or organ systems)
may be aggravated by exposure to this material: skin, lung (for
example, asthma-like conditions).

|Fire Fighting Instructions||
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece
operated in the positive pressure demand mode with appropriate
turn-out gear and chemical resistant personal protective
equipment. Refer to the personal protective equipment section of
|NFPA Rating||Health – 3, Flammability – 0, Reactivity – 0|
Cover the contaminated surface with sodium bicarbonate or a soda
ash/flaked lime mixture (50-50). Mix and add water if necessary to
form a slurry. Scoop up slurry and wash site with soda ash
solution.Proper mixing procedures are essential. Trained
personnel should conduct this procedure.Untrained personnel
should be removed from the spill area.
Eliminate all ignition sources (flares, flames including pilot
lights, electrical sparks). Persons not wearing protective
equipment should be excluded from area of spill until clean-up has
been completed. Stop spill at source. Prevent from entering
drains, sewers, streams or other bodies of water. Prevent from
spreading. If runoff occurs, notify authorities as required.
Pump or vacuum transfer spilled product to clean containers for
recovery. Absorb unrecoverable product. Transfer contaminated
absorbent, soil and other materials to containers for disposal.
|Handling||Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied. Since emptied containers retain product residues (vapor, liquid, and/or solid), all hazard precautions given in the data sheet must be observed. Addition to water releases heat which can result in violent boiling and spattering. Always add slowly and in small amounts. Never use hot water. Never add water to acids. Always add acids to water.|
Chemical splash goggles and face shield (8″ min.) in compliance
with OSHA regulations are advised; however, OSHA regulations also
permit other type safety glasses. (Consult your industrial
Wear resistant gloves such as: neoprene, polyvinyl chloride, To
prevent skin contact, wear impervious clothing and boots..
If workplace exposure limit(s) of product or any component is
exceeded (see exposure guidelines), a NIOSH/MSHA approved air
supplied respirator is advised in absence of proper environmental
control. OSHA regulations also permit other NIOSH/MSHA
respirators (negative pressure type) under specified conditions
(see your industrial hygienist). Engineering or administrative
controls should be implemented to reduce exposure.
|Engineering Controls||Provide sufficient mechanical (general and/or local exhaust) ventilation to maintain exposure below TLV(s).|
