HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

  • Eye Irritation
  • Skin Irritation
  • Specific Target Organ Toxicity - Single Exposure
  • Acute Aquatic Toxicity

FIRST-AID MEASURES

Inhalation         Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention.
Ingestion Induce vomiting immediately as directed by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Skin Contact Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.
Eye Contact Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention immediately.

FIREFIGHTING MEASURES

Fire   As with most organic solids, fire is possible at elevated temperatures or by contact with an ignition source. Fire may produce toxic fumes. 
Explosion Not considered to be an explosion hazard.
Fire Extinguishing Media Dry chemical, foam, water or carbon dioxide. Water spray may be used to keep fire exposed containers cool.
Special Information In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved selfcontained breathing apparatus with full facepiece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.

ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Containment procedure  On land, sweep or shovel into suitable containers. Minimize generation of dust.
Cleanup procedure Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Wear respirator, chemical safety goggles, rubber boots and heavy rubber gloves. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas. Shut off all sources of ignition. Evacuate the area. If necessary, employ water fog to disperse the vapors. Absorb the matter with compatible vermiculite or other absorbing material. Place in a suitable container and retain for disposal. Ventilate and clean the affected area. Do not flush into sewerage system or to drains.

HANDLING AND STORAGE

Handling  Do not inhale. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid prolonged or repeated exposure. Wash thoroughly after handling.
Storage  Store in original container, tightly sealed container, protected from direct sunlight, in a dry, and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials. Do not store in unlabelled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination. Controlled room temperature indicates a temperature 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F); that results in a mean kinetic temperature calculated to be not more than 25°C; and that allows for excursions between 15° and 30°C (59° and 86°F) that are experienced in pharmacies, hospitals, and warehouses. Provided the mean kinetic temperature remains in the allowed range, transient spikes up to 40°C (104°F) are permitted as long as they do not exceed 24 hours. Preserve in tight containers, preferably at controlled room temperature.
