Hazards and Protection.
Keep in a cool, dry, dark location in a tightly sealed container or cylinder. Keep away from incompatible materials, ignition sources and untrained individuals. Secure and label area. Protect containers/cylinders from physical damage.
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Wear protective gloves and clothing and safety goggles.
Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Always use a NIOSH or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator when necessary.
ELIMINATE all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks or flames in immediate area). Keep combustibles (wood, paper, oil, etc.) away from spilled material. Do not touch or walk through spilled material. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. SMALL SPILLS: Take up with inert, damp, noncombustible material using clean non-sparking tools and place into loosely covered plastic containers for later disposal.
Shock-sensitive. Highly reactive. Heat sensitive.
Strongly reduced material such as sulfides, nitrides, and hydrides
May explode or ignite in contact with organic material.
The temperature of the substance must be maintained at or below the Control Temperature at all times. SMALL FIRES: Water spray or fog is preferred; if water not available use dry chemical, carbon dioxide or regular foam. LARGE FIRES: Flood fire area with water from a distance. Use water spray or fog; do not use straight streams. Move containers from fire area if you can do it without risk. Do not move cargo or vehicle if cargo has been exposed to heat. Fight fire from maximum distance or use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles. Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after fire is out. BEWARE OF POSSIBLE CONTAINER EXPLOSION. ALWAYS stay away from tanks engulfed in fire. For massive fire, use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles; if this is impossible, withdraw from area and let fire burn.
May explode from heat, contamination or loss of temperature control. Particularly sensitive to temperature rises.
Sensitive to temperature rises. Above a given Control Temperature they decompose violently and catch fire. May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). May ignite spontaneously if exposed to air. May be ignited by heat, sparks or flames. May burn rapidly with flare-burning effect. Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard.
Flammable and/or toxic gases formed in fires include acetone, isopropyl alcohol, acetaldehyde, and ethane.
May cause severe injury or burns.
Seek medical assistance.
Move to uncontaminated atmosphere; if breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Wash off with isopropyl alcohol and water; call a physician.
Flush with copious amounts of water.
