Properties.

Hazards and Protection.
Storage
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.
Handling
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.
Protection
Wear appropriate protective gloves, clothing and goggles.
Respirators
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and structural firefighters' protective clothing will provide adequate protection against internal radiation exposure, but not external radiation exposure.
Small spills/leaks
Do not touch damaged packages or spilled material. Without fire or smoke, leak will be evident by visible and irritating vapors and residue forming at the point of release. Use fine water spray to reduce vapors; do not put water directly on point of material release from container. Residue buildup may self-seal small leaks. Contact radiation safety officer.
Stability
No data.

Fire.
Fire fighting
Presence of radioactive material will not influence the fire control processes and should not influence selection of techniques. Small Fires: Dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or regular foam. Large Fires: Water spray, fog (flooding amounts).
Fire potential
May burn but does not ignite readily.

Health.
Exposure effects
   Ingestion
See Inhalation.
   Inhalation
Radiation presents minimal risk for un damaged packages. Contents of damaged packages may cause higher external radiation exposure, or both external and internal radiation exposure if contents are released. Note labeling to assess degree of potential exposure.
   Skin
See Inhalation.
   Eyes
See Inhalation.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Treat ingestions of greater than 40 milligrams per kilogram with decontamination of the stomach if within 4 hours of ingestion. Administer charcoal as a slurry.
   Inhalation
Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult. See Ingestion.
   Skin
Immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes. See Ingestion.
   Eyes
Immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes. See Ingestion.
