Hazards and Protection.
Storage
Cool, dry location. Tightly sealed container. Keep away from incompatible materials.
Handling
Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied. Since emptied containers retain product residues (vapor, liquid, and/or solid), all hazard precautions given in the data sheet must be observed.
Protection
Chemical splash goggles in compliance with OSHA regulations are advised; however, OSHA regulations also permit other type safety glasses. Whre chemical resistant gloves. To prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact, wear impervious clothing and boots.
Respirators
Not required under normal conditions of use.
Small spills/leaks
Small Spill - Absorb liquid on vermiculite, floor absorbent or other absorbent material. Large Spill - Persons not wearing protective equipment should be excluded from area of spill until clean-up has been completed. Stop spill at source, dike area of spill to prevent spreading, pump liquid to salvage tank. Remaining liquid may be taken up on sand, clay, earth, floor absorbent, or other absorbent material and shoveled into containers.
Stability

Health.
Exposure effects
Central nervous system depressant effects, including drowsiness, headache, progressive obtundation and coma have preceded death. Drowsiness is usually delayed approximately 24 hours after ingestion. Meningismus, cerebral edema and hemorrhage, and neuropathies have been reported.
   Ingestion
Common initial symptoms are heartburn, followed by nausea and abdominal cramps, vomiting and occasionally diarrhea. Later symptoms include back pain and severe abdominal pain.
   Inhalation
Death normally occurs from sudden cardiorespiratory arrest. Pulmonary edema may develop. Tachypnea may occur secondary to acidosis.
   Skin
Skin irritation has been reported after prolonged occupational dermal contact. Skin dryness, irritation, and contact dermatitis have been reported following varying degrees of exposure to detergents.
   Eyes
May cause mild eye irritation. Symptoms include stinging, tearing, and redness.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Administer charcoal as a slurry (240 ml water/30 g charcoal). Usual dose: 25 to 100 g in adults/adolescents.
   Inhalation
Move patient to fresh air. Monitor for respiratory distress. If cough or difficulty breathing develops, evaluate for respiratory tract irritation, bronchitis, or pneumonitis. Administer oxygen and assist ventilation as required. Treat bronchospasm with beta2 agonist and corticosteroid aerosols.
   Skin
Remove contaminated clothing, wash exposed area with copious amounts of water. A physician should examine the area if irritation or pain persists.
   Eyes
Irrigate exposed eyes with copious amounts of tepid water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation, pain, swelling, lacrimation, or photophobia persist, the patient should be seen in a health care facility.
