Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.
Acids - bases - oxidizing agents - reducing agents.
Carbon monoxide, irritating and toxic fumes and gases, carbon dioxide.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Extinguishing media: Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire. In case of fire use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Inhalation of dust may cause respiratory tract irritation.
Causes skin irritation. May be harmful if absorbed through the skin. May cause reddening of the skin.
Contact produces irritation, tearing, and burning pain. Causes severe eye irritation and possible injury.
