Hazard Symbols: C
Risk Phrases: 10 35
Section 3 - Hazards Identification
Appearance: APHA: 10 max clear liquid. Flash Point: 40 deg C.
Target Organs: Kidneys, liver, respiratory
system, teeth, eyes, skin.
Potential Health Effects
Causes severe eye burns. Contact with liquid or vapor causes
severe burns and possible irreversible eye damage.
May cause skin sensitization, an allergic reaction, which becomes
evident upon re-exposure to this material. Causes severe burns with
delayed tissue destruction.
May cause severe and permanent damage to the digestive tract. Causes
gastrointestinal tract burns. Causes severe pain, nausea, vomiting,
diarrhea, and shock.
Effects may be delayed. May cause irritation of the respiratory
tract with burning pain in the nose and throat, coughing, wheezing,
shortness of breath and pulmonary edema.
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis. Repeated
inhalation may cause chronic bronchitis. Repeated exposure may cause
erosion of teeth.
Section 4 - First Aid Measures
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes,
occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid
Get medical aid immediately. Immediately flush skin with plenty of
water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing
Do NOT induce vomiting. 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.
Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure and move to fresh
air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If
breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Notes to Physician:
Treat symptomatically and supportively.
Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures
Will burn if involved in a fire. Wear appropriate protective
clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes. Wear a self-contained
breathing apparatus (SCBA) to prevent contact with thermal
decomposition products. Reacts with most metals to form highly
flammable hydrogen gas which can form explosive mixtures with air.
For small fires, use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or

Explosion Limits, Lower:4.00 vol %
Upper: 17.00 vol %
(estimated) Health: 3; Flammability: 2; Instability: 0
Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated
in Section 8.
Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth),
then place in suitable container. Use water spray to dilute spill to
a non-flammable mixture. Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches
which lead to waterways. Remove all sources of ignition.
Section 7 - Handling and Storage
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and
wash before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation. Empty containers
retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous.
Avoid contact with heat, sparks and flame. Do not get on skin or in
eyes. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use only in a chemical fume
Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Store in a cool, dry,
well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.
Flammables-area. Store in a suitable container in a dry area above
the substance's freezing point.
Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped
with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate general or
local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below the
permissible exposure limits.
