Hazards and Protection.
Keep in a cool dry location. Avoid storage in containers containing copper.
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.
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.
At elevated temperature or misting conditions, use an OSHA approved respirator.
Spill area my be slippery. Use care to avoid falls. Contain spill. Absorb with inter material, shovel into proper container.
Stable at normal temperatures and pressures.
Strong oxidizing agents.
Oxides of carbon.
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. Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire.
Slight irritation. Vapors may cause burns.
Due to aspiration hazard and generally low toxicity of these compounds, vomiting is not recommended. Due to potential for inducing vomiting and aspiration, use activated charcoal only if there is a coingestant with potentially serious toxicity. Do not administer a cathartic. Excessive diarrhea should be treated with high fluid intake (pedialyte or gatorade) and monitoring of fluid and electrolyte status. Restrict solid food intake until diarrhea resolves.
If symptoms develop, move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. Keep person warm and quiet; seek immediate medical attention.
Remove contaminated clothing. Wash exposed area with soap and water. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Launder clothing before reuse.
