Section 3: Hazards Identification

 

Potential Acute Health Effects:

Very hazardous in case of ingestion, of inhalation. Hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact

(irritant). Prolonged exposure may result in skin burns and ulcerations. Over-exposure by inhalation may cause

respiratory irritation.

 

Potential Chronic Health Effects:

Very hazardous in case of ingestion, of inhalation.

Hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact (irritant).

CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: Classified A1 (Confirmed for human.) by ACGIH, 1 (Proven for human.) by IARC, +

(PROVEN) by OSHA. Classified 2 (Reasonably anticipated.) by NTP.

MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: Not available.

TERATOGENIC EFFECTS: Not available.

DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Not available.

The substance is toxic to lungs, the nervous system, mucous membranes.

Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage.

 

Section 4: First Aid Measures

 

Eye Contact:

Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes,

keeping eyelids open. Cold water may be used. Do not use an eye ointment. Seek medical attention.

 

Skin Contact:

After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Gently and thoroughly wash the contaminated skin

with running water and non-abrasive soap. Be particularly careful to clean folds, crevices, creases and groin.

Cold water may be used. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.

 

Serious Skin Contact:

Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek immediate

medical attention.

 

Inhalation: Allow the victim to rest in a well ventilated area. Seek immediate medical attention.

 

Serious Inhalation:

Evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or

waistband. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth

resuscitation. Seek medical attention.

 

Ingestion:

Do not induce vomiting. Examine the lips and mouth to ascertain whether the tissues are damaged, a possible

indication that the toxic material was ingested; the absence of such signs, however, is not conclusive. Loosen

tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth

resuscitation. Seek immediate medical attention.

 

Serious Ingestion: Not available.

Section 6: Accidental Release Measures

 

Small Spill: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container.

 

Large Spill:

Oxidizing material.

Stop leak if without risk. Avoid contact with a combustible material (wood, paper, oil, clothing...). Keep substance

damp using water spray. Do not touch spilled material. Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas;

dike if needed. Call for assistance on disposal. Be careful that the product is not present at a concentration level

above TLV. Check TLV on the MSDS and with local authorities.

 

 

Section 7: Handling and Storage

 

Precautions:

Keep locked up Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Keep away from combustible

material Do not ingest. Do not breathe dust. Wear suitable protective clothing In case of insufficient ventilation,

wear suitable respiratory equipment If ingested, seek medical advice immediately and show the container or the

label. Avoid contact with skin and eyes Keep away from incompatibles such as combustible materials.

 

Storage: Oxidizing materials should be stored in a separate safety storage cabinet or room.

 

Section 8: Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

 

Engineering Controls:

Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below

recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fume or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to

airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.

 

Personal Protection:

Splash goggles. Lab coat. Dust respirator. Be sure to use an approved/certified respirator or equivalent.

Gloves.

 

Personal Protection in Case of a Large Spill:

Splash goggles. Full suit. Dust respirator. Boots. Gloves. A self contained breathing apparatus should be used

to avoid inhalation of the product. Suggested protective clothing might not be sufficient; consult a specialist

BEFORE handling this product.

 

Exposure Limits:

TWA: 0.1 (mg/m3)
