Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Extinguishing media: Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire.
Non-combustible, substance itself does not burn but may decompose upon heating to produce corrosive and/or toxic fumes.
Contact with metals may evolve flammable hydrogen gas.
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis. Chronic inhalation may cause effects similar to those of acute inhalation.
May cause irritation of the digestive tract.
May cause asthmatic attacks due to allergic sensitization of the respiratory tract. Causes irritation of mucous membrane. Inhalation may produce lachrimation, sneezing, rhinnorhea, cough, dyspnea, bronchial asthma, and cyanosis.
May cause skin irritation. May cause skin sensitization, an allergic reaction, which becomes evident upon re-exposure to this material. Contact with the skin may cause urticaria (hives).
May cause eye irritation. May cause conjunctivitis.
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.
