Hazards and Protection.
Do not store near combustible materials. Keep container closed when not in use. Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use only in a well ventilated area. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Empty containers retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Keep away from clothing and other combustible materials. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames.
Eyes: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166. Skin: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
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.
Clean up spills immediately, using the appropriate protective equipment. Sweep up, then place into a suitable container for disposal. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Provide ventilation. Cover solids with a plastic sheet to prevent dissolving in rain or fire fighting waters.
Stable under normal temperatures and pressures. Explodes on contact with peroxyformic acid.
Strong reducing agents, potassium, hydrogen peroxides, sodium, sulfides (inorganic, e.g. ferric sulfide, lead sulfide, sodium sulfide), sulfites, dichloromethylsilane, seleninyl chloride.
Irritating and toxic fumes and gases, oxygen, lead/lead oxides.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Combustion generates toxic fumes. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Oxidizer. Greatly increases the burning rate of combustible materials. Extinguishing media: Use water only!
Combustible by chemical reaction with reducing agents. Ignites on contact with dichloromethylsilane.
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.

Chronic exposure to lead may result in plumbism which is characterized by lead line in gum, headache, muscle weakness, mental changes,
May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause kidney damage. Many lead compounds can cause toxic effects in the blood-forming organs, kidneys and central nervous
Causes respiratory tract irritation. May cause effects similar to those described for ingestion.
Causes skin irritation.
Causes eye irritation.
If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid immediately.
Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid if irritation develops or persists. Wash clothing before reuse.
Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid immediately.
