Hazards and Protection.
Avoid freezing or excessive heat. Do not handle or store near an open flame, heat or other sources of ignition. Keep the container tightly closed and in a cool, well-ventilated place.
Gloves recommended to prevent prolonged skin contact. Safety glasses, goggles, or face shield recommended for eye protection.

Strong alkali and oxidizing agents.
Extinguish with water spray, foam, carbon dioxide, or dry powder. Firefighters should wear full fire-fighting turn-out gear (full Bunker gear) including NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full facepiece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.
May cause gastrointestinal irritation.
Inhalation of vapors or mist may be irritating to the respiratory system.
Not a primary skin irritant, but repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause mild, transient irritation.
