Hazards and Protection.
Keep tightly closed. Keep away from heat, sparks, and open flame. Store in a cool dry place.
Compatible chemical-resistant gloves. Chemical safety goggles. Protective clothing.
Cover with dry-lime, sand, or soda ash. Place in covered containers using non-sparking tools and transport outdoors. Ventilate area and wash spill site after material pickup is complete.
Moisture, acids and strong oxidizing agents.
Oxides of carbon.
Extinguish with carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder or appropriate foam. Do not use water. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.
Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions. Vapor may travel considerable distance to source of ignition and flash back.
Vapor or mist is irritating to the eyes, mucous membranes, and upper respiratory tract. May be harmful by inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption.
If swallowed, wash out mouth with water provided person is conscious. Call a physician.
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
In case of contact, immediately wash skin with soap and copious amounts of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Call a physician.
