Hazards and Protection.
Store in a cool, dry place. Store in a tightly closed container.
Wear chemical splash goggles, protective gloves and clothing.
Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29 CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Use a NIOSH/MSHA or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator if exposure limits are exceeded or if irritation or other symptoms are experienced.
Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth), then place in suitable container. Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches which lead to waterways. Clean up spills immediately.
Stable at room temperature in closed containers under normal storage and handling conditions.
Strong bases, strong oxidizing agents, strong reducing agents.
Oxides of carbon.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam to extinguish.
Vapors may be heavier than air. They can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas.
During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion.
May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May be harmful if swallowed.
Causes respiratory tract irritation. May be harmful if inhaled. Can produce delayed pulmonary edema.
Causes skin irritation. May be harmful if absorbed through the skin.
Causes eye irritation. May cause chemical conjunctivitis.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Wash mouth out with water.
Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid. Do NOT use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
