Hazards and Protection.
Do not store exposed to direct light. Do not allow moisture or water contamination of product. Store in closed containers in a dry, well-ventilated area.
Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied. Since emptied containers retain product residues (vapor, liquid, and/or solid), all hazard precautions given in the data sheet must be observed. Avoid creating and breathing dust. Use dustless systems for handling, storage, and clean up so that airborne dust does not exceed the PEL. Use adequate ventilation and dust collection. Practice good housekeeping.
Nisoh certified respirator; rubber gloves; chemical goggles.
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Keep material out of water sources and sewers. Build dikes to contain flow as necessary. Land spill: Dig a pit, pond, lagoon, holding area to contain liquid or solid material. Cover solids with a plastic sheet to prevent dissolving in rain or fire fighting water. Water spill: Neutralize with agricultural lime (CaO), crushed limestone (CaCO3), or sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3). Add soda ash (Na2CO3). Adjust pH to neutral (pH=7). Use mechanical dredges or lifts to remove immobilized masses of pollutants and precipitates.
Reacts as bases to neutralize acids.
When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and fumes of zinc oxide.
Extinguish fire using agent suitable for type of surrounding fire. (Material itself does not burn or burns with difficulty.)
Some may burn but none ignite readily. May polymerize explosively when heated or involved in a fire. Containers may explode when heated. Some may be transported hot.
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
Ingestion - zinc salts (especially zinc sulfate) produce gastritis ranging from a burning pain in the mouth and throat to intense gastric and substernal pain, strictures, violent vomiting, diarrhea, shock, and possible death.
Inhalation of material may be harmful.
Contact may cause burns.
Induce vomiting, followed by prompt and complete gastric lavage, cathartics, and demulcents.
Move to fresh air; if exposure is severe, get medical attention.
Wash with soap and water.
Flush with water for at least 10 min.; consult physician if irritation persists.
