Hazards and Protection.
Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Keep containers tightly closed.
Wash thoroughly after handling. Wash hands before eating. Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Wash clothing before reuse.
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 gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2 requirements or European Standard EN 149 must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a respirator's use.
Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches which lead to waterways. 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.
Stable under normal shipping and handling conditions. Stable at room temperature in closed containers under normal storage and handling conditions.
Strong oxidizers, acids, bases.
Carbon monoxide, irritating and toxic fumes and gases, carbon dioxide, lead/lead oxides.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Water runoff can cause environmental damage. Dike and collect water used to fight fire. Dusts at sufficient concentrations can form explosive mixtures with air. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Extinguishing media: Use alcohol foam, carbon dioxide, or water spray when fighting fires involving this material. Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire.
This material is nonflammable
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.

Chronic exposure may cause blood effects. May cause kidney damage.
May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause kidney damage.
May cause respiratory tract irritation.
May cause skin irritation.
May result in corneal injury. May cause irreversible eye injury. Exposure to particulates or solution may cause conjunctivitis, ulceration, and corneal abnormalities.
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.
Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
