Section 3 - Hazards Identification

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW

Appearance: white powder.
Warning! Causes eye, skin, and respiratory tract irritation. Hygroscopic (absorbs moisture from the air). May cause adverse reproductive effects based upon animal studies.
Target Organs: Respiratory system, eyes, skin.


Potential Health Effects
Eye: Causes eye irritation.
Skin: Causes skin irritation.
Ingestion: May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause headache.
Inhalation: Causes respiratory tract irritation.
Chronic: Adverse reproductive effects have been reported in humans.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures


Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
Skin: Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion: Get medical aid. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Wash mouth out with water.
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.
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.
Extinguishing Media: Use foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide. Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire.
