**** SECTION 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION ****

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Appearance: White solid.
WARNING! MAY CAUSE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DEPRESSION. HARMFUL IF
SWALLOWED. MAY CAUSE KIDNEY DAMAGE. MAY CAUSE CARDIAC DISTURBANCES.
CONTACT WITH SKIN CAUSES IRRITATION AND POSSIBLE BURNS, ESPECIALLY IF
THE SKIN IS WET OR MOIST. MAY CAUSE SEVERE EYE IRRITATION AND
POSSIBLE INJURY. CAUSES SEVERE RESPIRATORY TRACT IRRITATION.
Target Organs: Heart.

Potential Health Effects
Eye:
Contact with eyes may cause severe irritation, and possible eye
burns.
Skin:
Contact with skin causes irritation and possible burns, especially
if the skin is wet or moist.
Ingestion:
May cause severe gastrointestinal tract irritation with nausea,
vomiting and possible burns. May cause cardiac disturbances.
In very severe cases, may result in seizures, rapid respiration, slow
heartbeat, or death.


Inhalation:
May cause severe irritation of the upper respiratory tract with
pain, burns, and inflammation.
Chronic:
No information found.

**** SECTION 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES ****

Eyes:
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes,
