Hazards and Protection.
Keep tightly closed. Incompatible Materials: Do not allow contact with water Store at 2-8 C
Wear appropriate government approved respirator, chemical-resistant gloves, safety goggles, other protective clothing. Faceshield (8-inch minimum).
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
ELIMINATE all ignition sources. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Absorb or cover with dry earth, sand or other non-combustible material and transfer to containers. DO NOT GET WATER INSIDE CONTAINERS.
Water, Alcohols, Oxidizing agents, Strong bases.
Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide, Hydrogen fluoride.
Extinguish using Carbon dioxide. Dry chemical powder. Unsuitable: Do not use water. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.
Combustible material: may burn but does not ignite readily.
Water hydrolyzes material liberating acidic gas which in contact with metal surfaces can generate flammable and/or explosive hydrogen gas.
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
Corrosive. Causes burns. Irritating to eyes and respiratory system. Lachrymator.
TOXIC; inhalation, ingestion, or skin contact with material may cause severe injury or death. Effects of contact or inhalation may be delayed.
Contact with molten substance may cause severe burns to skin and eyes. See Inhalation.
Seek medical assistance.
Move victim to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim ingested or inhaled the substance; induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes. Immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes. For minor skin contact, avoid spreading material on unaffected skin.
Immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes.
