Hazards and Protection.
Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.
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 protective gloves and clothing and safety goggles.
Keep unnecessary people away; isolate hazard area and deny entry. Stay upwind; keep out of low areas. If water pollution occurs, notify appropriate authorities. Do not touch spilled material; stop leak if you can do so without risk. Small spills: absorb with sand or other noncombustible absorbent material and place into containers for later disposal. Small dry spills: with clean shovel, place material into clean, dry container and cover; move containers from spill area. Large spills: dike far ahead of spill for alter disposal.
Stable at room temperature in closed containers under normal storage and handling conditions.
Incompatible with sodium hydroxide If mixed with reducing agents, including hydrides, sulfides and nitrides, they may begin a vigorous reaction that culminates in a detonation.
Keep unnecessary people away; isolate hazard area and deny entry. Stay upwind; keep out of low areas. Wear self-contained (positive pressure if available) breathing apparatus and full protective clothing.This material may burn but does not ignite readily. Small fires: dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or foam. Large fires: Water spray, fog or foam. Move container from fire area if you can do it without risk.
Incompatible with sodium hydroxide.
During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion.
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.
Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
