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.
Handle in accordance with all current regulations and standards.
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.
Reacts with carbon dioxide to give sodium carbonate and oxygen Mixtures with combustible materials (most organic compounds) are readily ignited by friction, heat, or contact with moisture.
Use dry chemical, graphite, or dry earth. Use water only if flooding quantities are available. Apply water from as far a distance as possible.
May explode from friction, heat or contamination. These substances will accelerate burning when involved in a fire.
Will accelerate burning when involved in a fire. May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). Some will react explosively with hydrocarbons (fuels). Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard.
Fire may produce irritating and/or toxic gases.
May cause severe injury, burns, or death.
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 skin or eyes with running water for at least 20 minutes.
