Hazards and Protection.
Store in a cool dry location. Vent periodically.
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Wear appropriate protective gloves, clothing and goggles.
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Keep sparks, flames, and other sources of ignition away. Keep material out of water sources and sewers.
Stable at normal temperatures and pressures.
Acids, aldehydes, amides, carbamates, cyanides, inorganic fluorides, halogenated organics, isocyanates, ketones, metals, nitrides, peroxides, phenols, epoxides, acyl halides, and strong oxidizing or reducing agents Flammable gases are formed by mixing materials in this group with alkali metals Explosive combination can occur with strong oxidizing agents, metal salts, peroxides, and sulfides.
Oxides of carbon and nitrogen.
Use water in flooding quantities as fog. Solid streams of water may spread fire. Use foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide. Keep run-off water out of sewers and water sources. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water. Apply water from as far a distance as possible.
Self-decomposition or self-ignition may be triggered by heat, chemical reaction, friction or impact.
May be ignited by heat, sparks or flames. Some may decompose explosively when heated or involved in a fire. May burn violently. Decomposition may be self-accelerating and produce large amounts of gases. Vapors or dust may form explosive mixtures with air.
May produce irritating, toxic and/or corrosive gases.
The toxological properties of this substance have not been fully investigated.
Irritation, nausea, headache, vomiting. May cause severe injury or death.
Seek medical assistance.
Move victim to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes. Remove material from skin immediately. Immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes.
Immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes.
