Section 3 - Hazards Identification

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW

Appearance: blue liquid.
Caution! May cause eye and skin irritation. Good laboratory procedures are recommended when handling this compound. This is expected to be a low hazard for usual industrial handling.
Target Organs: None.


Potential Health Effects
Eye: May cause eye irritation.
Skin: May cause skin irritation. May cause a deep staining of the skin.
Ingestion: Ingestion of large amounts may cause gastrointestinal irritation. Low hazard for usual industrial handling.
Inhalation: Low hazard for usual industrial handling. Excessive inhalation may cause minor respiratory irritation.
Chronic: No information found.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures


Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. If irritation develops, get medi cal aid.
Skin: Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid if irritation develops or persists.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Wash mouth out with water. Get medical aid if irritation or symptoms occur.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid if cough or other symptoms appear.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures


General Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Use extinguishing media appropriate to the surrounding fire. Substance is noncombustible.
Extinguishing Media: Substance is noncombustible; use agent most appropriate to extinguish surrounding fire.
