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 appropriate protective gloves, clothing and goggles.
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Keep sparks, flames, and other sources of ignition away. Keep material out of water sources and sewers.
Can react with reducing agents to generate heat and products that may be gaseous (causing pressurization in closed containers) Can react violently with active metals, cyanides, esters, and thiocyanates.
Flood with water. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water. Apply water from as far a distance as possible.
These substances will accelerate burning when involved in a fire.
May explode from heat or contamination. Some may burn rapidly. Some will react explosively with hydrocarbons (fuels). May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard.
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
TLV (as Pb): ppm; 0.05 mg/m3 A3 (ACGIH 1996). MAK: ppm; 0.1 mg/m3; as Pb (1996).

Inhalation of dust is toxic.
May cause severe burns.
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. Immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes.
