First-aid measures

Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Treat symptomatically. Get medical attention if symptoms persist.
Eyes: Immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. If easy to do, remove contact lenses. Get medical attention immediately.
Skin: Wash with soap and water. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
Ingestion: Seek medical advice.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Irritation

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

The first aid procedure should be established in consultation with the doctor responsible for industrial medicine.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical

Unsuitable extinguishing media
No Restrictions.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Hazardous Combustion Products: carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, oxides of sodium, oxides of sulfur

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: none

Advice for firefighters

Special protective actions for fire-fighters

Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective equipment. Sweep up and place in a clearly labeled container for chemical waste.

Environmental precautions
Prevent product from entering drains.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Use personal protective equipment.

Reference to other sections
Flush spill area with water spray. Prevent runoff from entering drains, sewers, or streams. Dike for later disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Personal Precautionary Measures: Do not get in eyes. Wash thoroughly after handling.

Prevention of Fire and Explosion: Keep from contact with oxidizing materials. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. In the United States of America, refer to NFPA® Pamphlet No. 654, "Prevention of Fire and Dust Explosions in the Chemical, Dye, Pharmaceutical, and Plastics Industries."

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities Storage: Keep container closed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
no data available

Exposure controls
Country specific exposure limits have not been established or are not applicable unless listed below.

Ventilation: Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.

Respiratory Protection: If engineering controls do not maintain airborne concentrations below recommended exposure limits (where applicable) or to an acceptable level (in countries where exposure limits have not been established), an approved respirator must be worn. In the United States of America, if respirators are used, a program should be instituted to assure compliance with OSHA Standard 63 FR 1152, January 8, 1998.

Respirator type: Air-purifying respirator with an appropriate, government approved (where applicable), air-purifying filter, cartridge or canister. Contact health and safety professional or manufacturer for specific information.

Eye Protection: Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles).

Skin Protection: It is a good industrial hygiene practice to minimize skin contact. Choose body protection in relation to its type, to the concentration and amount of dangerous substances, and to the specific work-place.

Recommended Decontamination Facilities: eye bath, washing facilities

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
none

Chemical stability
Stable.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
Will not occur.

Conditions to avoid
no data available

Incompatible materials
Material reacts with strong oxidizing agents.

Hazardous decomposition products
Sodium oxides, oxides of sulfur

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Discharge, treatment, or disposal may be subject to national, state, or local laws. Incinerate. Since emptied containers retain product residue, follow label warnings even after container is emptied.
