Hazards and Protection.
Storage
Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a cool, dry place. Store in a tightly closed container.
Handling
Use spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment. Avoid breathing dust, vapor, mist, or gas. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Use only in a chemical fume hood.
Protection
Skin: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
Respirators
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.
Small spills/leaks
Absorb spill with inert material, (e.g., dry sand or earth), then place into a chemical waste container. Remove all sources of ignition. Use a spark-proof tool.

Stability
Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.
Incompatibilities
Strong oxidizing agents, acids, acid chlorides, acid anhydrides, chloroformates.
Decomposition
Nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen fluoride.

Fire fighting
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. Will burn if involved in a fire. Combustible solid. To extinguish fire use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam.
Fire potential
Combustible material: may burn but does not ignite readily.
Hazards
When heated, vapors may form explosive mixtures with air: indoors, outdoors, and sewers explosion hazards.
Combustion products
Irritating and toxic hydrogen fluoride and oxides of nitrogen may form in fires.

Health.
Exposure effects
Absorption into the body leads to the formation of methemoglobin which in sufficient concentrations causes cyanosis.
   Ingestion
May cause irritation of the digestive tract. May be harmful if swallowed.
   Inhalation
May cause respiratory tract irritation. May be harmful if inhaled.
   Skin
Causes skin irritation. May be harmful if absorbed through the skin.
   Eyes
Causes eye irritation.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Get medical aid. Wash mouth out with water.
   Inhalation
Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
   Skin
Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.
   Eyes
Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
