||Barium chloride anhydrous
Risk Phrases: 25 20
Section 3 - Hazards
Appearance: white. Warning! Harmful if swallowed. Causes
eye and skin irritation. Causes severe respiratory tract irritation. Causes
severe digestive tract irritation with pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May
corrode the digestive tract with hemorrhaging and possible shock. May cause
cardiac disturbances. May cause blood abnormalities. May cause kidney damage.
May cause lung damage.
Target Organs: Kidneys, respiratory
system, muscles, cardiovascular system.
Eye: Contact produces irritation,
tearing, and burning pain. May cause conjunctivitis.
Causes skin irritation. Prolonged contact with the skin, especially if the skin
is wet or moist, causes necrosis.
Ingestion: Harmful if
swallowed. May cause kidney damage. May cause severe digestive tract irritation
with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause hemorrhaging of
the digestive tract. Barium chloride affects the muscles (especially the smooth
muscles of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems), causes salivation, tingl
ing of the mouth or face, convulsions, numbness, muscle paralysis, res piratory
failure, slow pulse rate, pulmonary edema, irregular heart be at, potassium
deficiency in the blood.
Inhalation: Causes respiratory
tract irritation. May cause effects similar to those described for ingestion.
Chronic: No information found.
Section 4 - First Aid
Eyes: 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 soap and
water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.
Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion: 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
Inhalation: Remove from exposure to fresh air
immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is
difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid. Do NOT use mouth-to-mouth
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically
Section 5 - Fire
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. Non-combustible, substance itself does not
burn but may decompose upon heating to produce irritating, corrosive and/or
Extinguishing Media: For small fires, use dry
chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam. Substance is
noncombustible; use agent most appropriate to extinguish surrounding fire.
Section 6 -
Accidental Release Measures
Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in
Spills/Leaks: Vacuum or sweep up material and
place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, observing
precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty
conditions. Provide ventilation.
Section 7 - Handling
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Wash hands
before eating. Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and
accumulation. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not ingest or inhale.
Storage: Keep away from heat and flame. Keep away from
sources of ignition. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from
Section 8 - Exposure
Controls, Personal Protection
Controls: 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
