Hazards and Protection.
Store in a cool, dry place. Store in a tightly closed container.
Avoid breathing dust, vapor, mist, or gas. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Skin: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.

Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container.
Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.
Strong oxidizing agents.
Nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. To extinguish fire use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam.
Ataxia, slurred speech, nystagmus, dystonias, and varying degrees of CNS depression are common. Myoclonic activity, seizures and abnormal tendon reflexes have been reported. Cyclic coma, possibly due to delayed absorption, has been reported.
Harmful if swallowed. May cause irritation of the digestive tract.
May cause respiratory tract irritation.
May cause skin sensitization, an allergic reaction, which becomes evident upon re-exposure to this material.
May cause eye irritation.
Get medical aid. Wash mouth out with 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.
