Hazards and Protection.
Keep tightly closed. Keep away from heat, sparks, and open flame. Store in a cool dry place.
Rubber gloves. Chemical safety goggles.
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Make no contact with the spilled material. ELIMINATE all ignition sources and ground all equipment. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. A vapor suppressing foam may be used to reduce vapors. Absorb or cover with dry earth, sand or other non-combustible material and transfer to containers. Use clean non-sparking tools to collect absorbed material.
Stable at normal temperatures and pressures.
Strong oxidizing agents, Strong bases.
Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide, Hydrogen bromide gas.
Extinguish using Carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder, or appropriate foam. Unsuitable: Water may be effective for cooling, but may not effect extinguishment. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact
HIGHLY FLAMMABLE: Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flames.
Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Vapor explosion hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers.
Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
Flammable. Irritant. Irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin.
Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation. May cause toxic effects. May irritate or burn.
May irritate or burn. May cause toxic effects if absorbed through the skin.
Seek medical assistance.
Move victim to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes. In case of contact with substance, immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes. Wash skin with soap and water.
In case of contact with substance, immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes.
