Hazards and Protection.
Material can be stored at room temperature. Venting: open.
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.
Gloves and skin protection.
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.
Reacts as acid to neutralize bases.
Extinguish using agent most appropriate for surrounding fire.
Contact with metals may evolve flammable hydrogen gas.
Toxic hydrogen fluoride and cadmium oxide fumes may form in fires.
IDHL: NIOSH considers cadmium dust (as Cd) to be a potential occupational carcinogen.
O, G-A2, I-1, N-1, CP65
CNS effects of acute exposures have included delayed parkinsonism. Smoking and industrial exposure to cadmium has resulted in increased placental levels of cadmium.
Ingestion - nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and cramping, diarrhea, salivation, dry mouth, and substernal pain occur.
Acute inhalation of fumes can cause cough, dyspnea and chest tightness which is similar to metal fume fever, but which may progress to pneumonitis, pulmonary edema, and death due to respiratory failure in severe cases. Acute exposure can result in residual emphysema and fibrosis.
Skin eruptions and pruritus may occur.
Call a physician at once; if victim is conscious, induce vomiting by giving a tablespoon of salt in a glass of warm water and repeat until vomit is clear; give milk or whites of eggs beaten with water; keep patient warm and quiet.
Remove patient to fresh air; seek medical attention.
Flush with plenty of water.
Flush with plenty of water and get medical attention.
